If Casio keeps producing it, I can see the average price range drop from 250-310, but I would expect for that to take months. A couple of weeks or months ago, one sold for under 200, but this was definitely an exception.
    i have to disagree. i dont think prices for the 5000 will drop that low. watch has been around for a long time, selling out and restocking. i believe theyll hold steady. i just dont see them dropping to low three bills. maybe for second-hand, used... yes. some ebay sellers dont bother changing prices even when there is new stock at retail shops with better prices. i do agree with an occasional exception. just have to have the right timing and know where to look 8)

    Fernando I have a question, you've worn both the dw5600E with a gw5000 band and the gw5000 itself. Do they both fit in the same strap hole or does the height of the screwback on the gw5000 require you to use another strap hole? I was just wondering if that height makes a difference in how they wear.

    Compared with my GW-M5600 I'm on the 4th/5th hole with the standard strap and 5th/6th hole with the GW-5000 strap.

    Yeah, I only meant second hand watches, sorry for the confusion, new ones with shipping I don't see going for lower than 395-400 USD to the USA. If you are in Europe then import fees may apply. Second hand watches will for sure drop to low 300s and depending on condition, market saturation, and willingness for seller to sell quick I would say there is a decent chance of high 200s USD.

    @Greg1491: I will check when I get home and let you know.

    me too! looking forward to it. I've passed on it 3 times now (every time I've passed, they've sold out). this'll prolly be my last G for awhile... but should have me admiring it for some time, if everything everyone says is true.

    Wow that was quick. I didn't even know they had them back in stock. Still waiting for Chino Watches to get them back in.

    TZA - Can I ask what status your tracking says? Mines currently saying 'posting/collection' and has done since Friday.
    I understand there's not much work happening in Japan over weekends so hoping for more updates by end of play today.
