    Not sure if I had reported in yet. When it came down choosing the GW-5000 or GW-S5600 last year... Well this is a must have in any collection. HAGWE!

    I have been told it has been discontinued so in the forums or auction sites would be your best bet.

    Do they discontinue these things a few months after they are released or what? Has the black fac ed version ever been available in the US?

    All of the GW-5000 are Japan issued only.

    When the gw-5000/gw-5000b were released around 2009 they stopped producing them and they pretty muc sold out. Then the GW-5000 was re-released this month but the GW-5000B was not.

    If my info is not correct someone correct me.

    ok that's what I don't get. Why do they stop making them when they have a good selling watch? Also what's the reason they have Japan only models? They'd be good sellers worldwide. What's the reason they limit their market for ewatches like this?

    I found myself writing a long explanation and then realized that I would only be speculating. In short I suspect if there was a big enough market for a 400 square in the US, which I doubt there is, Casio would be in it.

    square refers to the 5000/5600 G-shock models, 400 is the approximate price for a new gw-5000 shipped from Japan. I could comfortably say that you would need to spend about $450 maybe more for a used gw-5000b in good condition.
