    Fer knows his stuff for sure. That 265 is before shipping though, correct? I paid 275 (before shipping) for mine more than a year ago so prices seem to be stable.

    That is really low for a brand new one from Japan I suspect a used one.

    I wouldn't necessarily go around searching for the absolute lowest price on a gw-5000. I bought one from a seller on rakuten years ago that was priced $30 lower than all the others, and when it arrived I saw there was a small defect in the DLC on the caseback. This was not mentioned in the seller's ad, and truth be told it is something that 99% of people would not even notice. But I have no doubt that seller noticed it and that is why it was priced a little bit lower than the others, and available for online sale as opposed to sale in a store.

    I hope it will be delivered tomorrow. USPS tracking says it's already in Illinois. I know it's brand new according to their website but I will check for defects upon it's arrival.

    You could well be right, but it would be pretty misleading to state a price bought used without specifying it as so. Either way, pleased with my $311 inc shipping BNIB from Japan (watch was 285 or so) more than a year ago. Helluva watch.

    Good point.

    I keep waffling on whether to purchase or not.

    I have the GW-M5610 and the GW-5600J among other squares and keep wondering if I would wear it enough. Heck, I have over 30 watches right now and some sit for weeks without being worn. Maybe time to clean the collection but it's difficult. I like different G's for different reasons.

    Maybe if the dollar rises considerably more over the yen, then I could justify.......
