    Casio DW-5030

    So, is Casio just trickling these out? Will they not be a USA release?

    Anyone know?

    The official release date of the 30th Anniversary Resist Black series is April 19 for Japan, I'm sure they will trickle to the USA possibly in May and launching first at G-Shock SoHo NYC.

    My agent expects the DW-5030C in few days. He has often G-Shocks pretty early. I am thinking of buying the whole set. Still no news for Europe. News might come fast, as the fiscal year just closed.

    Well, that makes sense. What are people buying occasionally on Rakuten? Are these pre-orders?

    Exactly. Pre-orders right now.
    Yes, I am OCD. What gave it away?

    Does anyone know if these are made in Japan, like the current GW-5000?

    I suspect either China or Thailand for most of them, unless CASIO decides otherwise for one of them. For reference, the 25th anniversary series models were made in Thailand, not Japan.

    From what I've seen, samples were Made in Japan H. Full production could possibly be Thailand but I have a strong feeling these will be Japan H.

    I just did a quick image check on-line and found this:

    Name:  DW-5030_back.jpg

    I could see them producing the 5030 in Japan and the rest elsewhere, like Thailand or China.

    EDIT: This image may be doctored... obviously, they're not going to provide this with a 240 module. I wonder which module it will be... I just wish they'd not be so restrictive and at least provide several alarms instead of one.

    That image is a faked one from some forum. May be a wish list?
