    I'm intrigued more than tempted. I like the idea of being able to tell time in the dark on a higher end G-Shock watch, but I will wait to see this in person. I'd be really tempted if it had a black face and band. The street price doesn't seem too bad, nice find.

    I don't like the small digital displays; they make a watch look gimmicky and a bit cheap IMO. It would have looked better if the lcd had covered the whole face, but then I suppose there'd have been nowhere to put the solar panel.

    Though they're not my cup of tea, I think MTG's should be full analogue. the fact that the technology is sort of hidden away is quite cool. Dressy, but under the surface as G as the next watch.

    i think the black and silver look cheap when put together like that, not a fan at all.

    Agree with David and lee.
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    This makes the watch light, but it does look a bit cheap. The all black looks better in my opinion.

    As for the display, perhaps a single digital line would have been better, but that would be too reminiscent of the Breitling Emergency.

    I like it but I can't say I'm tempted.


    BTW, I've hit 6K!
