New Casio MGR watch 'is good looking and tough'

First published: 16-08-2010

Watch fans who want to wear an item that looks tough and stylish are being advised to go for the Casio MGR-7500.

The MGR series is one of the most expensive of the watchmaker's collections, which believes in "going from zero to one" to create something that was not available before, but the number of features more than makes up for this, Reviewboard magazine has reported.

For the MGR-7500, these include having a Diamond Like Carbon (DLC) coating, which is highly scratch resistant, a daily alarm, stopwatch and a calendar that displays the day and date, as well as a mode that can display the time for 27 cities in 29 various time zones.

When in this mode, pressing the top right button can also alter the home city to one of the owner's choosing.

Features within this watch do not stop there, either, with a water resistance of up to 200 metres, along with a technique for battery life that has the second hand jump on a two second interval to alert the user of a low battery.

The reviewer adds: "The MRG-7500 is an excellent choice, and one of my favourite G-Shocks of all time."
