Sorry no; I grew up with Casio stuff but £100+ for what is essentially 80's tech.

This is worth £20 tops. Casio have become the Apple of the, err, retro watch world.

Inb4 Bluetooth, also ancient tech that probably adds about 43p to manufacturing costs.

Rarity is one aspect. The other is the micro engineering, hand crafting of the thing, heritage, precision mechanical finesse. My guess is Casio's at this price have zero residual value.

Check, check and check.

The finish of the MRG-G2000GA reflects a specialist attention to the smallest details. The case is made from recrystallised titanium, the sparkling appearance of which resembles the crystal formation of the temper line on the blade of Japanese swords. An Arc Ion Plating (AIP®)*1 treatment is then applied in the Koki-murasaki (deep purple) that is traditionally associated with nobility in Japan. The bezel is made from COBARIAN®*2 and bevelled in a manner inspired by the blade tip of a Japanese sword. The watch incorporates design elements inspired by Japanese swords — from the yasuri-me (rasp marks) on the nakago (tang) to the crystal formation of the hamon (temper line) and the kissaki (blade tip). The centre band of the MRG-G2000GA is finished in a pattern modelled after the pattern employed in the renowned Gassan tradition of swordsmiths. The pattern is applied by hand to each link by Sadanobu Gassan, who is in line to succeed the 800-year-old Gassan tradition. The second link in the band is also inscribed with the kanji character from the saying tanto hitosuji (“a singular dedication to forging”) that is espoused by the Gassan tradition.

The MRG-G2000GA features time adjustment using radio wave time-calibration signals, GPS satellite signals, and Bluetooth® to ensure accurate time keeping, reflecting time zone changes around the world and daylight savings time.

SADANOBU GASSAN

Born into the famous Gassan family of swordsmiths in 1979, Sadanobu Gassan was exposed to the world of swordmaking from a young age. In 1998, he began training with his father, Sadatoshi Gassan. In 2006, he was recognized as a swordsmith by the Japanese Agency for Cultural Affairs.

Since that time, he has continued to challenge himself in new areas of craftsmanship that carry forth the traditions of the past, winning numerous prizes and accolades in various competitions. As the sixth in the Gassan line from Osaka, he carries the honour of the next generation of Japanese swords.

Sadanobu Gassan currently serves as a director for the All Japan Swordsmith Association.

Sounds like great marketing. Show me a pic?
I'm sensing two flavours of Casio Fanboys here.

1) Ones like me; who like the late 80's early 90's style ones. They cost about £8.99 from Argos back in the day, and I think still a reasonable cost today.
2) 30 years on the modern "G-Shock" brigade. "Ooh it's got Solar and Bluetooth! £103! bargain for such quality!"

The Casio marketeers must be so glad the second category exists.

I still prefer their previous lineups - the MTG-G1000 and MRG-G1000 (Especially the MTG-G1000BS-1AER). Looks more rugged with their angular lines in comparison to the new generation.

With respect, if you want a cheap Casio there are plenty still available. If you want additional features that are genuinely useful, such as radio timekeeping and solar, you need to pay for them. Show me where these features are available for less money please?
This deal shouldn’t have gone cold. People are likely comparing with the very similar G-Shock from earlier in the day at £66 and thinking this is bad value. In reality this one adds the bracelet that goes for £50+ on eBay, making this an equally good deal.

You keep comparing apples with oranges, I'm not sure you know what a g-shock is so here's a little light reading..

What sets G-Shock watch apart from the competition is that the quartz timekeeping module is protected by 10 different layers, including a stainless steel case, a urethane rubber bumper, and a hardened mineral glass watch crystal.
Also, the timekeeping device “floats” in a foam cradle, making it even more resistant to shocks.
All of this protection means the watch can also be submerged into around 200m (600ft) of water and survive being dropped from 10 meters (approximately 30 ft.)


I don't know how you can possibly think this watch is worth 20 quid, I've never seen a watch with atomic accuracy for that price. Here's some more light reading on that feature..

Thanks to the innovative GPS Hybrid technology, a combination of energy-efficient high-performance GPS and radio technology (Multiband 6), time adjustment is performed by two powerful systems that complement each other and therefore display the precise time at virtually any location in the world: Where available, the G-SHOCK automatically receives the radio signal of the respective regions, and therefore shows the correct time with atomic accuracy in Europe, North America and Japan, as well as in distant parts of Canada, Central America and China. Where these signals are not available, the watch corrects the time using GPS signals — also fully automatically.

Couldn't agree more. If you understand the engineering behind the G-Shock range, and can appreciate the atomic clock timekeeping, and tough solar tech, you soon not only understand why it can't be priced at £20, but also appreciate the fairly decent price it is available at.

I had one of these, bought rather cheap on ebay as new for £450 but was way too big and bulky and end up selling
All this heavy engineering is fine but who needs it? I have a Casio f91w I use for offroad motorcycling and stuff like that. It keeps going despite crashing and keeps great time. I hadn't worn it in a year and adjusted it by 30 seconfs when I pulled it out the drawer, so atomic time keeping is great but again why do I need it. My £9.99 f91w keeps going and looks awfully similar to this watch if your ignore the chunky case.

Strange you should say that it has been suggested before. Why spend 100 quid on a Casio when you can get one for 10 could be tip 1 just for you. You can even get fake f91w casio if you want to save more, saw them on the market stalls in Morocco last week. Don't wear when passing through immigration in the US or you might get banged up in Guantanamo, the f91w is popular with terrorists.

There go 3 tips all for you bro.

Here's another way to look at it - why would you want to walk around with a £10 watch on your wrist? These things last for years, if you have the means (which evidently you do), then why wouldn't you want something better made with more features? We're not exactly talking big money here for something that'll last many years - it's like buying a coat or a couple pairs of decent jeans..

Just another way to look at it!
