    Mhmm nice, my grail, been looking, but cannot see for less than around $350, I keep spending my spare cash on 5600s!
    At least I managed to get another watch on my list on vacation in Florida recently - G5600KG-3.

    I don't know if Casio dislikes the cool models necessarily. This one came out in 2001. It's possible they didn't sell well back then, or the metal bracelet was difficult to make, or they felt plastic straps were more durable or something. It's hard to predict what models will become desirable 15 plus years in the future. Some re-releases would be cool and would probably sell well, like the DW5000ML with the red display as another example. I too feel many folks would like an aftermarket metal bracelet, but besides the newish combi bracelet, they've stuck with the cheap plastic route.

    A good example would be the Burning Red Frogman with at least one unit having gone up to $4,000 - the $3,000 profit goes to that one lucky collector only, while if Casio didn't limit the production so much they would have been able to sell thousands of them. Since in the end these watches are all mass produced anyway, I fail to see the business logic behind it.

    The HR is cool no doubt. I actually ordered the strap, it's on backorder. My only qualm is I wish the red on the strap was more visible when wearing it. At a quick glance from some angles it looks like a plain black strap. I guess I'll reserve judgment until I can see it in person, whenever pacparts finally gets it to me!

    This may well become my daily driver.
    I don't care for the camo, and I think the pattern will mask wear well.

    I also don't like the negative display, but I'm willing to work with it, why?

    I NEEDED the red negative illumination, especially for the price. I lowballed the eBay auction and won it.

    I'm pretty happy with this one.

    And then what will have to be my last purchase for some time, according to my wife, who is never wrong.

    I saw this for too good of a price from an ebayer with little or no feedback. It totally smelled like a scam, but for the price, I rolled the dice.

    If this is fake, it's a damned good one.

    This is a very clean and well kept GA-110A-9. Now I'm too scared to wear it.

    I'm waiting on some resin for a G2310. So I'm right there with you.
