Isn't the Giez 1100 the same module for far less $? No Ti or sapphire crystal on the Giez but those things wouldn't be worth that extra pile of cash to me. At that price I'd rather get 3 Giez (or if I were going big just save up for a 7500) and have money left over. Just me though, don't get me wrong it is a nice watch.

Hi fieter

I have the all black version that goes for $900 in the USA though I got mine a lot cheaper direct from Japan.

It is a great watch with some useful features. It is a bit more complicated to use than an ani digi watch but that is because it presents a more upmarket, all analogue image. It looks large on the wrist due to small bezel but it wears light due to all titanium construction. The bracelet is of a high quality and feels and looks elegant.

I say go for it (try direct from Japan) you know you wont be content till you get it!

I love the all black Ti model. Until the Giez 1100 came out I was considering one as I value the "day" indicator and didn't want to drop the cash for a MR-G.

Not bad, but I much prefer this model Oceanus (Japan model), which also has the bonus of being 200m and having a proper one-way bezel...



They work out to be about $450US shipped from Higuchi/Seiya. Not too shabby for solid titanium, sapphire, atomic, solar watch. As for people complaining they're too much, Giez's big brothers, the top of the range MR-G's cost way more for what are the same movts. The Oceanus are good value IMHO...imagine what the equivalent Omega would sell for. :-x

Thanks - think I will get it!

I am in Hong Kong and have a connexion here to get fair discounts on almost anything. So I should get it here for less than $600.

To be honest for that money I'd rather have a similar looking Seiko or Citizen. It looks nice but I prefer my digitals to be casio and my analogues Seiko.

don't all of these use hardened titanium? if so, how scratch resistant has it been for those that own one.

Geogecko out of curiousity, was your watch black ion on titanium or black ion on stainless?

Cheers

I went with a black one of those watches, and was disappointed in the black ion coating starting to wear off.

I bought one of these instead, the OCW-300, and am very happy with it. Depends if want all analog or not, I guess.

Hi Adam, it was the OCW-700, which is black ion on titanium. I have an office job, and the only wear it was seeing was at a desk typing. Pretty sad in my opinion. I expected more.

It doesn't surprise me at all. I think the Black Ion Coating 'feature' was a dud from the beginning...

...there have been several models which I've liked a lot, but refuse to buy because of the BIC. <|
