    Is it too expensive, absolutely. But everyone needs a screw back....don't they? It's a keeper. Might be a perfect holiday/vacation watch. You're not going to be robbed for it but it has a real understated, extravagant feel about it that only you know about.

    Thank you Seiya-san. Another happy customer here
    Congrats. As a guy who once shunned G-shocks for their gaudy designs, the GW-5000 has surprisingly become my most worn watch for the reasons you've stated. I never thought I'd rely on its timing functions, so much so that when I wear one of my autos, I feel naked. That and the watch's comfortable strap, ideal heft and solid construction make the GW-5000 one great watch.

    Enjoy yours. It's a fantastic daily wearer.

    I wish I could ID the age of mine...

    Mine has no serial number at all since it was not assembled in a casio
    factory. Spare gw-5000 casebacks have no serial number.

    Strangely, my spare caseback for my 9300gy mudman has a serial.

    I guess casio takes their serial numbers more seriously for some watches.

    My reference for price was Seiya, but the site will be off the air until the 30th . You could try evilBay.
    In terms of availability it's a watch that everybody considers as a sort of LE, and though no one really knows if it's truly the case, there were periods where it wasn't easily available in the past. If you are really interested in one, I wouldn't wait too long to get one. Besides, prices will NOT go down, so...
