Another option for the Military Black style of watches.
The GA-100 series had already been popular when Casio decided to make a Military Black adjustment to it. So dark that some people claim it absorbs light, the GA-100MB-1A is an Ana-Digi combo with white hands and green digital numbers.
If it gets too dark, it’s easy to light up the watch by turning on the backlight. As it’s analogue and digital, as well as being touted as a military style watch, the light won’t be too bright so if you’re on a mission, you won’t blow your cover.
As a lot of people complained about the size of the buttons, just like with the case, Casio made them much larger, so you won’t hit the wrong mode by mistake.
As with the GA-100 series, the GA-100MB has a 1/1000-second stopwatch. This is one of the most accurate types, which even Grand Prix judges use. And to help you get the most out of a run, if you insert the distance you’re meant to travel, you’ll have an approximate speed so you’ll know when you need to improve.

Hubby loves it :) So water resistant! review by Janet Brown on 3/09/2016
Ordered this for my hubby and he loves it. He wears it all the time, even at the lake and he hasn't had any issues with the water. We've tried so many other watches that claim they're "water resistant" but this one was the only one that lived up to its word
Big but not too bulky review by Geoff on 2/09/2016
Great watch. I went with G Shock because my last one died after I used it for about 10 yrs. So I at least knew I'd get lots of mileage from this new one. This one out of the box looks sweet. It's black and dark, with green accents in the face. Not too bulky at all either. Stop watch is great to use during exercise since I can actually measure my approximate speed.
All in all its a great watch. Functional and since it's black it goes with pretty much anything!
Useful in the military review by Lance on 1/09/2016
Dad got me this before I went into basic training. Wow it's sturdy as! I take lots of tumbles in training but the watch hardly has a scratch!
Also liking the backlight. It's not too bright so won't give away my position.
