I'm curious on the (5) band thing. Casio screwed me and came out with 6 band technology shortly after the release of their 5 band technology... Do you think Seiko will do the same? Or, have they incorporated the two signals in Japan into one band?
Regardless this model has def caught my attention. Solar power is an interesting concept for watches. Soon Solar Atomic will be more well known.

Jan-10 said:Bloody Hell that watch is cool. Actually I love them. I think i'm gonna go with the SBFG001 like you did Minidriver... Interesting to me is that it seems you are allowed to display the day of the week or the world time. If thats indeed true, I really like that feature. I'll be ordering one of these in the coming days as well.
I think the whole multi band is not only for marketing but also manufacturing purposes. Once you have the technology to make multiband, its a lot easier to make a single module than seperate ones assuming it isn't cost prohibitive to do so. Galpo posted a non-RC version of an RC model Casio and he could still see the "RCVD" in the corner suggesting that it is the same RC capable module with just the antenna turned off.Jan-10 said:I hit Europe from time to time on business, but China- Not so much.

Excited for this one. It got me right away, then as soon as Mini Driver chimed in I knew it was a matter of minutes before I emailed Katsu. I hope it comes with the black display. I ordered SBFG001.
