    New MTG-1500 - Big Pics

    I lasted quite well, I managed to go over a year without buying a new watch. I dropped by here the other day to see if there were any interesting new G-Shock models: Bad move; a week later and my wallet is 200 quid lighter! But, I have a lovely new MTG-1500.

    I love it so far, I think Casio have really brought the MTG line up in quality. I had an MTG-900DU and was not that impressed by it, this new model is much nicer.

    Here are the pics:
    Front


    Clasp


    Side


    Wrist


    And the back:
    (There is a bit of discussion regarding the S stamped in the back here:)

    Hope you like them.

    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    ...i'm afraid there is no such thing as an el-backlight, but this (at least for me) totally insufficient LED illumination instead....:



    ...which will - on the other hand - help me to save money

    The areas of lume on the dial are tiny and the lume on the hands is not much better. cal..45's shot shows the LED quite well. IMO the LED is perfectly functional, you can read the face no problem, but not the LCD's. I think the backlights are always quite low power on the tough solar models, they need to save the battery power.

    shoot....I thought I read somewhere that it had an EL light, not LED? Anyone know if there is a similar model with EL lighting?
