This is the MRG-131T from 2001. There's only one MRG 131, no SS versions, no different dials, bracelets, etc. I'm glad they chose titanium for it:

Nice dark blue textured dial, shiny markers and hands for easy legibility. Reverse digital display. Minute hands moves once every 20 seconds. Curved crystal.

Big, easy to press buttons, screwback of course, with interesting gasket on the back which helps keeping the watch snug on the wrist and provides water resistance as well. Ti bracelet is comfortable. Watch weighs about 3.5 ounces. 200M water resistant, made in Japan of course.

In between its brethren the 210T and 110T. As you can see it's a modest sized watch, about 42mm across. It has a 2339 movement which might not be familiar to many. The only other G's that used it were the GS310 Giez and MTG510 which are from around the same 2001 time frame. 5 alarms, chime, world time, stopwatch, telememo to store numbers and stuff. There's a cool 2-3 second animation before each feature. For world time it has a little map, stopwatch shows an hourglass, alarm shows bells, stopwatch has a little man running. Pretty neat. Here's a link to the manual where you can see the static images for each feature: User Manual for Casio Watch Module 2339 - Owner's Guide & Instructions

The hard work getting it running and cleaned up was totally worth it to me. Cheers, fergfour
