Just guessing though, I would be surprised if its MSRP was over $500. Maybe less considering that the GW-5000 is around $300.
Anyhow, let's keep our fingers crossed for the 35th anniversary watches!!
For a G-Shock it would be MTG-S1000V-1A. The one somebody posted a picture of a few posts back. I think that is really nice but if I was going to spend that much on a watch I don't know if I would buy that. It does look pretty amazing though.
That's the same retail price as the GWF-D1000B-1JF Frogman!! (which I just sold, btw! More on that later...)
YIKES!!!!!! Well, not only was the GW-T5030C titanium, but I've heard it was limited to 200 pieces. Anytime they limit a G to such small numbers, and it is titanium, prices will be waaaaaaay up there!! (same thing happens with the titanium Frogs that are numbered, limited editions - as you know! haha)
Well.....that might cause me to think twice about getting one, if Casio releases that type of square again. Then again, they'd always be worth money, unlikely to actually lose money on that purchase I think, if it can be bought around retail price...
Anyhow, all just dreaming right now. But who knows - maybe we'll see a titanium GW-5000 for the 35th anniversary???
Thanks for posting this DSD!
I was lucky enough to buy my grail about 6 months ago as my 5th anniversary/birthday gift from my wife.
It's my grail for a few reasons. It's a storied manual wind movement, it's a beautiful historic chronograph, and it's been on the freaking moon (sorta...the moon watches were a slightly different movement) and in space (still to this day).

* Edit to my post below: from some reading I did, sounds like the GW-T5030C WAS actually a titanium GW-5000, more or less. And it did look pretty incredible. I would love to get my hands on one, or a new release very similar to it... We can always hope!!
My current grail among G-Shocks would be any of the depth sensor Frogman units. In fact I've already tried one in a shop (a not so very wallet friendly thing to do). I managed to resist buying it then and there at the last minute and decided to start a separate fund for it, so maybe it'll be mine in a few months.
For non-Gs, I'd really like to someday have the MM600. I don't really like the tuna designs other than the old SBBN007/015/017 but I managed to scratch that itch with an SRP653, which is an automatic to boot.
My only 'matic watch. I honestly saw some dreams about it after I saw it on some watch blogs.
STØLÅS Harbormaster Spinnaker
Number 107 out of 125 that are made.
There's a watch in my pocket and it's hands are broken, the face is blank but the gears are turnin'.
