Today is the 30th, just got my 30th G-Shock! It's a 30th Anniversary Limited Edition and it closes Casio's 30th Anniversary for me!! amazing how it all lined up like that for me! haha so this is my good luck watch!
1st for anyone from India interested in the tracking, to see how long a watch takes from Japan to get here, thought I would get it on Sunday but really glad the postman showed up today:
and I got hit with customs..
Rs.2500/- ($40) so around 26-27% of watch price..
ah well.. at least it was packaged properly:
glad it wasn't Devastated! lol
Inside there was some paper to prevent it from moving around, no bubble wrap etc..
1 thing I have always suspected is that TIP-TOP and E-Bloom are the same sellers.. they always get stock and sell out at the same time from what I have seen..
The day I bought this watch from Rakuten Global, both had the watch in stock, same price.. I went with TIP-TOP and then when I checked later E-Bloom was sold out as well..
The address on the box says TIP-TOP:
The E-mail address on the card inside says E-Bloom:
No free tea or kit kat or anything like that.. lol
the watch box was fine, the tin had a tiny dent in it, that I just pushed out with my fingers.. it's fine now.
I really love this watch! My wife likes it a lot as well.. she says it's better than the EMINEM. She wanted to be the 1st one to wear it.. haha
Meth cooking time!
The yellow reminds me of Heisenberg's Hazmat suit. The bobble head is a darker shade of yellow, but it was lighter on the show.
My 2nd Metal Keeper:
Metal Keepers look cool, but they will get scratched easily and 1 problem I faced with the Eminem was that it just kept sliding off.. it wouldn't sit in place, so not really a fan of them as such.. But I do like that it adds a more premium feel to it.
Made in Thailand! for some reason I prefer that.. even the Eminem is made in Thailand. So it looks like Japan is making the high end stuff, then comes Thailand with some special limited editions and China is making the basic stuff.. My Vito is made in China.. anyways. Don't mean to start the whole Thailand Vs China thing again! lol
Worked out a little expensive for me, life would have been a lot easier if Casio India just had to release it here.. But I love the watch, so don't mind. I'm glad I didn't have to buy the Eminem from Japan as well.. that would have killed my wallet.
Very Happy with with watch, looks damn good!
I started Casio's 30th Anniversary with the Rising Red 6930.. so it was fitting that I close with this. It's cool that Casio decided to upgrade the DW6900, good move by them.. am really loving the GDX's! can't wait to see what 2014 brings!
And I love that this is my 30th watch!
31st G is not far away! haha should get it this week.. it's free though, won it in a contest.. I don't know what it will be, hope its a good one!
