    I definitely have to disagree there, I' say 75% Steel 25% Resin thus Metal Twisted G

    If you like MTG's look over the Giez look, that's reason number one. Big features on MTG over Giez is Countdown Timer and stainless steel bracelt. The Giez is the only screwback with Atomic/Solar capabiliy and uses a very comfortable rubber strap instead of resin.

    Here are the youtube reviews of both....

    Here's an article Sjors asked me to write on the MTG on his excellent 50 G's website...

    Which Giez model would be correct for the UK. I want Atomic Solar for the UK.

    There are currently 2 models available officially in the UK. They are the GS-1100D-1AER and the GS-1100-1AER , but I can't work out what the difference is, anyone have any ideas?

    Cool - you might want to check out some of the other threads on this forum regarding G-Shock "horror stories".

    The GS-1100D comes with stainless bracelet whereas GS-1100 has resin strap.

    Any day now, man! I think I ordered too close to Christmas, so it's probably stuck in all the holiday traffic. It's OK, I'm a patient guy (at least that's what I tell myself...)

    So what happened to your GIEZ, if I may ask?

    Thanks for all the info...especially Doug! I watched the YouTube on the MTG, and I'm convinced it's what I want. I don't normally like bracelets on my watches but the SS with the resin inserts looks great! Once I get it, I'll probably ship it to Angelo in Spain for a hands and markers re-lume job...
    So now, where to get one in the USA? I've found one AD in Utah...any others I should consider?

    I wasn't aware that this watch was sold in the US. If you're able to get it at a dealer here, go for it. Otherwise I'd recommend Seiyajapan.com. I've made a few purchases from Seiya and he was very helpful in a special request for me as well.
