    Do you think that I got a good deal on it???
    That is a very good deal.

    How much is the true shipping cost + insurance to ship a GW-5000 to the USA? Do you think that it's $33.90 and that the $16.95 price that he charged me is really the the 50% off price?
    The watch cost $198.43 + $16.95 total shipping & insurance costs = $215.38 TOTAL COST for everything.
    Being the cheapskate that I am, I really wanted to save the $16.95 shipping costs that they charged me. Did they really give me 50% off on the shipping or is the $16.95 the "full" price on the shipping?
    EMS shipping is very fast and very reliable and very cheap, the equivalent service in the USA to Japan is about 60-80 dollars, when I order some watches and the shipping isnt included in the price, EMS is usually high 20s to mid 30s so 16.95 is a good deal. There's a good chance you will even get it this week.

    Is this your first GW-5000? Or have you had one before?

    This is my first GW-5000. I've never owned one before. The sales price and the Rakuten points that I accumulated allowed me to be able to buy this watch at a reasonable price under $200. I really didn't want to spend more than $200 for an all stainless steel case G-Shock when you can buy the same exact watch, but in all resin with the same exact module in it for $100 on Amazon.

    Ok then, so I have my GW-5000 up for sale and I've just had some interest. Trouble is I'm not sure I'm doing the right thing. I'm thinking it's going to be a flip and regret watch this one. Anyone else sold one then to repurchase another. Thing is I really like it, it just gets no wrist time. What I ought to do is wear it a week or so and see if it becomes attached to my wrist. Daft thing is I always put my gwm-5610 on instead.

    What shall I do?

    That is a bit strange that you prefer GW-M5610 over screwback... you don't like the way screwback sits on your wrist or do you prefer the red line on the GW-M5610?

    Don't get me wrong I love the look of the gw-5000 and actually prefer it. I can't seem to get the strap in the correct position, it's either too tight or too loose. I suppose that's because of the screwback. The 5610 is just so comfortable and light. Plus I know the 5000 is an expensive G and I wear them for work. I would be gutted if I scratched the 5000, not so the 5610. All silly things really, I should just crack on and wear the 5000 and enjoy it, I know its the superior of the two.
