    Did I get a good deal....?

    I found this G Shock GX-56 on a local sight and the guy sold it to me for $20.00. The watch is a little beat up, tiny scratch on The crystal, bezel dings, and strap wear. Was it worth the 20, or shouldve I passed it up...

    To me, it looks like a good deal... Taking a look at the back plate, you can see the batch number (201D164J), this means the watch was manufactured on 164th day of 2010, and it is made in Japan...
    If you replace the band and bezel (which are easily available), it will look almost new, the scratch on the crystal does not look very remarkable (just judging by your photos)

    Here's my GX-56, you can see it is manufactured in China in 2012:

    Works fine, charges quick.. After scrubbing it clean (took it all apart) with a toothbrush the scratch isn't noticeable but the bezel and straps are gonna get changed.. It's my fourth G and I can't get over how big it is..Im fairly sure a train would be the only thing that could destroy it.

    Great deal there! I think the fact it's a Japan model makes it better, (for me anyway!).

    I'd always prefer to get a Japan factory watch, there's something in my head that's says they're better made, which is obviously not true but makes me feel happier about it😊

    A watch is for life, not just for the WRUW thread!

    Anytime you can get a King under $50 is amazing. I got a really dirty one for $35 one time and it cleaned up great; basically a new watch.
