Yet another 'Blame it on WUS' .... It all started when I first saw an image of the MRG-100 in someone's post, and I really liked its looks. Then I found how challenging it may be to get a hold of, let alone its cost. Like many others' comments, I would love to see the old MR-G digital all metal style revived with modern features like multiband, solar, etc. So looking around I found the GW-600 series and found that while not nearly as cool as the old MRG-100, it is similar in looks, has atomic/solar, even a 60 min CDT... and pretty cheap to boot! In fact it is not a bad alternative at all! I was looking for a dressier digital G, not black but SS. Many of the other SS digitals have a lot of resin all over their fronts, but the GW-600 is all SS except where the case joins the bracelet. The module is still resin but hard to see, and the caseback is the standard 4-screw SS. If it was all SS like the MR-G, man it would be perfect!
Is it me, but there are definite cues of the MRG-100 in the GW-600
My new GW-600DA, enjoy -
