    Not too sure with regards to whether thats an average for customs. Here's the full details from the tracking, only thing this doesn't show is the pick up from Seiya on the 19/10/12:

    26-10-2012 12:29 Milton Keynes Depot Collected by addressee
    25-10-2012 10:35 Milton Keynes Depot Awaiting payment of charges
    24-10-2012 23:51 Milton Keynes Depot Received at delivery depot
    24-10-2012 07:27 National Hub Received and processed
    24-10-2012 04:08 International Hub Received from Customs - charges to be paid
    24-10-2012 04:02 International Hub Forwarded for UK processing
    21-10-2012 21:00 International Hub Awaiting Customs clearance
    21-10-2012 20:14 International Hub Received in destination country
    20-10-2012 02:09 TOKYO INT BAG Forwarded for export
    Seems like it took 3 days with customs.

    After six days on my wrist, I declare this a great watch! Great in its "what time is it" simplicity; great in its build quality; great with its extremely comfortable band; and great with its Three Bears in weight = not too heavy, not too light, just right.

    Hi guys. I love my GW-5000, but something happened to the bezel.....after wearing it for 3 (yes, 3) days. One of the corners of the Bezel, just where the word "Shock" ends, has discolored a little bit. Was I so careless that I've already hit something with my watch? Or is the grey resin more prone to scuffs or rubbing off? I know, I know, it is a WATCH, and they wear, it is a G-SHOCK, and the resin is supposed to take the hits as opposed to the module. Then again....it was only after 3 days! Or am I being nitpicking?

    Personally I wouldn't worry too much about it, the 5000 is made to outlive several bezel / strap changes.

    Just enjoy your watch!

    GW-5000 resin is soft and damages a little bit more easily than DW-5600E resin. Fortunately, GW-5000 resin is cheap to replace (the bezel is only like $6 or so...). I have mine wearing a DW-5600E bezel because they do seem a little tougher. Personally, I like the feel of GW-5000 bands, but they are overrated as far as quality.

    Thanks for your replies! What you say makes lot of sense. BTW....I still believe it is a wonderful watch, as its "core and skeleton" are really unique. And you are right, the bezel/resin can be changed any time! Huh....I better buy the replacement parts....

    If you do look for spare parts, and you live in the USA, Pacparts is a good website. Or you can always call Casio parts division and ask them (I don't have the number offhand)

    Both the GW-5000 and DW-5600E resins are made of urethane right? Can you post the markings of the GW-5000 strap? For everyone's benefit, the markings on the DW-5600E strap are 444/FB116/<PUR>.
