    Question MTG-S1000 owners - how is it holding up?

    This is a call to all MTG-S1000 owners. I'm looking to buy the silver model but weary of the bright shiney polished surfaces. How is yours holding up to the daily wear?

    Can scratches be polished out? I've seen a few shots which have looked bad, it leads me to believe the metal is soft and easily scratches, maybe quite deeply. Is this the case for all?

    Thanks in advance.

    If you are worried about scratches you can always get the pre-scratched model: MTG-S1000V

    Looking to buy one of these next. Was leaning towards the MTG-S1000 more for the "bling" factor, but I like the everyday abuse the resin can take. At the moment I'm wearing the DW-5600BB daily and never have to worry about knocking it. Tempted to collect some squares for now, but while I have some available cash I would like to make a big purchase.

    I am literally the worst at making a decision and while I was just deciding between the GPW-1000 or the MTG-S100 out jumps the Frogman at a price I was willing to pay. Now I have three to choose from, and while I wish I was rich enough to buy all three right now there can only be one!

    I'm right there with you jimmy1......trying to decide between the GPW-1000 (same model as you have pictured) and the MTG-S1000.

    I was lucky enough to be able to try them both on this past week and still can't make up my mind. Every time I think I have a choice made and sleep on it, well, it's different when I wake up! LOL!!

    Have you been able to see them in person?

    There is a new MTG-G1000D model coming in October this year, this will likely be a combination of the MTG-S1000D's design and the GPW-1000's GPS module, might be the watch to resolve your dilemma

    Ha ha I'm the same. Sleeping on it probably only proves I dont need another watch.........

    I've seen the MTG-S1000 in person. Very nice, lighter than it looks. Very shinny! Not paying UK prices though at £600 - £800. I'm struggling to spend £500 on a G-Shock if I'm honest, I'd like to save for an Omega Speedmaster Pro Moonwatch. But then I'd be struggling to spend £3000! 1st world problems.

    No UK shops I've seen near me have the GPW-1000 in stock to try.

    Lovely!
    That would so be the ONE to get but I imagine it will be £800 - £1000 so while I'd love one its not gonna make the list.
