    It's more expensive at seiya and I can't seem to figure out how to navigate the higuchi site.

    So where should I order from? Which one would send it to Philly quicker and safer?

    Thanks.
    I think I got mine from the same ebay seller. I remember I paid $308 shipped thru ems as well. Got in CA after 2 days... :)

    Time for me to check in with my piece. Feels great on the wrist.

    I tried using the combi bracelet on this and it didn't sit right on my wrist. Unlike if I just use the rubber, fits perfectly...

    Honestly, the rubber strap is probably THE most comfortable strap to ever come on a G. So that combined to a small footprint of the case and low weight of the watch, I really can't see how a combi-bracelet will make the watch wear better.
    It may look better in the eyes of a few, but in the comfort department I find the original strap very hard to beat.

    Yeah, the rubber strap is pretty perfect on it. I think one of the reason it doesn't sit well with the combi bracelet is because of the screwback. It definitely sits higher when using the bracelet.

    I like the bracelet when wearing it to work though. Can almost get away with wearing a G in business casual.

    I would wear my GW-5000 with a suit, most people don't care and it doesn't look bad.

    The combi bracelet makes the watch wear as comfortable as other bracelet design. It curves around the shape of your wrist. It allows the skin to breath and takes the sweat well. Easier to put on and take off. This combi one is even more comfortable because of its light weight as the titanium one.

    But no doubt the rubber strap of GW5000 is comfortable too. Its design is just right for the screwback. I likes to wear both types on my GW5000s.

    Looks amazing guys. Just wondering...how easily does the DLC coating chip or scratch? Have any of u guys had the dreaded steel showing under DLC yet?
