I bought an MTG950BDJ off eBay for $120 about a year ago, and I've loved this thing ever since. As fate would have it though, it ventured with me through some rough activities about two weeks ago, and the metal band broke.
Literally, the pins that hold some of the links together snapped.
However the watch has survived, which proves how tough these suckers are.
I went searching the interweb and found that Casio came out with a new model, the MTG960DA
Looks nice, but the module is only 2818.. what's the difference between 2819/2818?? The 950 is also a bit more expensive than the 960.. what did they leave out of the 960??
Then I found this on eBay:
Completely different model, but same 2819 module?
I can't find that watch anywhere else as well, but only because google gives me sites in Japanese when I search for it, hmmmm.
So what I'm asking is:
How hard is it to have the metal band replaced on my MTG950BDJ?
Would it be better to buy a new one (ignoring cost)?
Which one would you get, another 950, or the cool steel blue 960, which happens to be cheaper, and has module 2818 (as opposed to 2819)?
