In particular, for the pursuit of reliability and functionality required by the rally cars run through the desert for several days.

    Just one push button at the big three every mode even though the clock, measuring the orientation. In a few situations like the desert was a target, you can immediately see the direction your facing. The circle-shaped LCD window at the side of 10, displays a graphic indicating the four cardinal points.
    And when the bivouac during the rally, as well as can be known by measuring temperature changes in the environment in the desert intense differences of temperature day and night, so graphically displays moon phases small window in the side at 9, the day It is also possible to act on that understanding the moonlight night.

      Thanks for that update, it looks to be fully featured and not bad looking. Only slight drawback for me is the emphasis Casio seem to put with red accents, which are not my favourites. It'll be interesting to see, when you get your hands on it, how stiff those buttons are.

      Indeed, the buttons will be interesting given the comments about the G-Shock G-9000 button stiffness. Will people be boiling up their new G-Shock G-9300 and GW-9300 Mudman watches to soften the buttons
      Quite like the red accents, bit of a G-Shock trademark imho. If it's anything like other Master G-Shocks they'll be bringing out various special in no time anyhow.

    Agreed with K&L, for your around price point, the cheapest analogue options you'll find are the GAC-100 models or maybe the older G-100 which is ana-digi.
