Lol - actually paying about 300 bucks. I have a bucket of G's and wanted to try this one on for size. I like the dual time display, analog display and the quick time change feature

Damn Paul. I thought that was one of the new Ti models.

If you want those features you should look at Astron.

Love it and getting for $300 is quite a nice discount.

Paul, that's a great snag, especially at $300. I've always wanted to try one of those but could never justify the MSRP. The MTG series have always caught my eye. Look forward to your impressions.

That seems like a great price for sure. I like this model too I hope you can get it and then do a review of it, even if short?

I just saw them in person yesterday at a G Shock event. They are impressive in person. Plus Kikuo Ibe the founder of G Shock was there and he was wearing too. Should be awesome!

I'm sure they would - he could just stand in the back of a room with that grin and not say a word while a bad guy is being interrogated. Money
