    Now this is a club I've been looking forward to joining! Got my G-Grail yesterday from Seiya, ordered it Wed, pretty impressive. The watch is a joy, I've poured over all the reviews on WuS and it lives up to the hype. My initial observations:

    - heavy, feels solid
    - low profile on the wrist
    - resin is super soft, I imagine this is what Hublot's rubber feels like
    - actual time digits a little smaller than my 5600
    - strap length is short, I have a 7.5 wrist and I'm on the fourth to last hole
    - display is very crisp, best of any of my G's

    This one is going to get a lot of wrist time, might even displace my Sub!

    Hmmm...
    So it's true.
    Seiya apparently lied to me about the 'first 5' queue who received the email.
    I believe you guys bought it directly from his website after Doug notified you with the email he received from Seiya.
    It's rather unfortunate; I was even pondering on purchasing my next GS from Seiya-san.

    Anyways, I ordered from another seller a few days ago.
    I expect it to arrive within this week.

    I bought wuyeah's and put a resin/composite bracelet on it. Here is my trio (yeah, I am obsessed with this model, I think it is "the G" for me). Next I plan to mod one of the positive displays and put some black buttons on it with a 5000b bezel/strap.

    My only gripe with this watch has been the buttons, but (maybe I am just crazy) the buttons on the gw-5000 that was just released this month, seem a tad easier to press.
