Default Arrived: Casio G-Shock MTGS1000V-1A MT-G Tough Solar Atomic Chronograph

A little premature, but I finally decided on a new G-Shock. Wanted a beefy once, since I won't be getting a Breitling Super Avenger II anytime soon.



Interested in reading anyone's experience with this watch. Will post lots more pics when it arrives.

Excellent choice! I very recently gave in to craving for a Gulfmaster, a very similar model. Glad I did. Very large but doesn't wear large, and very comfortable too. Enjoy!

Very nice choice. I also very recently gave in to a craving for the Gulfmaster, a very similar model in some ways, particularly size. It's big, doesn't wear big and very comfortable. I love it, didn't think I would. Enjoy yours!

No matter what the total number sold......they are solid watches. Wish I still had mine. That is a great watch, you can't go wrong.

Arrived a day early! The finish is so much better than the stock pictures. It has a somewhat gunmetal finish than the speckled finish in the photos. I'm glad I picked this over solid black!

Perhaps I made a mistake. 65 million watches in a week seems like a lot

After seeing your new G, I'm wondering if my desires for the King G,
the GWX 56 are misplaced?
SIL Mark has a King G. Luving it but he want gift or flip it to me!!!
After all I gave him my daughter. Her and her 2 Tag Huerers. (Aqua
Racer and Formula One actually)
Sez I'm an Indian Giver!!!
