    Question about MI:III special edition MTG-910D-2VER

    Is this multi-frequency, i.e. will the Waveceptor functionality of one acquired from an asian supplier work in the UK, or do I have to buy a UK/Euro-specific one (from the only UK authorized dealer, at huge expense)?

    Also, has anyone got a good link to the full spec of this G?

    It's probably like my MTG910DA-1v : press buttons B+C+D at the same time, and you can choose between signal from japan (J) or Europe (?). You can ask your vendor to check.

    In the US, they sell MTG910DA-1V and MTG911DMS only.

    Thanks. Seems to me you can switch between two signals — in the case of the Euro version, between UK and Germany. Means I'll have to buy one here if I really want one. £150 GBP (€225 EUR) is a lot of money for a quartz watch, IMO!

    It is too much, especially as the watch is little different from a GW-500 which costs significantly less. It wouldn't be entirely wrong to call it an opportunistic rip-off...

    With the GW-500 you can manually change from Rugby to Frankfurt, or let it automatically choose the strongest signal.
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    Even the GW-9000 5-band Mudman is only two-thirds of that price.

    (The MI:III is a better looker, though, if you're shallow like I am. )

    It's a better looker even if you're deeper than the Cayman trench...

    I know what you mean by "a lot of money for a quartz watch, IMO!" but if we get back to the true reason watches were invented - to tell time - and what quality was most highly prized - accuracy, it would seem we should be paying more for quartz, quartz with atomic, and thermo compensated quartz and the mechanicals should be cheap inaccurate cast offs from a time when we didn't know any better.

    It's just funny that we prize the innacurate watch that requires more maintenance and that generally is more fragile than one that keeps excellent time. I know why we prize the mechanicals, but it's funny if you look at it from the perspective of what one function above all else should a watch provide.

    I've been told that the UK version of the MTG-910D is different than that being touted as the MI:III in other territories and does not come with the MI:III packaging or caseback, can anyone confirm?

    I have the UK model, which comes with the M:I:III packaging, but standard case back without the special logo.
