    Cool Casios/Gshocks are like air-cooled porsches

    Anyone noticed that our beloved g-shocks (and some casios) sell quite fast in the 2nd hand market?... and we dont lose that much $$$ too

    when i was selling most of my G’s, iirc the most $$$ i lost was $35 ($20 for my gw6900 daily wearer, and $15 for my g-100)... the rest, either i got my money back OR made a few dollars more than what i paid for.

    granting i do take care of my watches (zero scratches with complete box and papers, i even keep the hangtags )

    Yesterday, my new “grown up ” casio mtd-1086 arrived, thinking i should probably just make it my new daily wearer (and keep my watches to a max number of 2), i posted my tough solar casio ws210h on facebook, and today whoala, somebody bought it for what i paid for it. (I did include a $2 nato strap in the sale lol)

    so yeah, our casios are like air-cooled 911 porsches

    Based on my observation, investing on collabs and limited editions could be quite profitable.

    That kinda strange. I personally would not pay price of new for used one. Ever. Especially for off the shelf model.
    There are many people asking such and sometimes over MSRP prices but it like used cars game seller looking for sucker.

    Well i buy my watches when they are mostly on sale. So when i do decide to sell them later on even at prices for what i paid for, they would still be 20%-40% cheaper than buying brand new... plus the fact that my watches are always in mint condition.

    The g7800, i did get more for what i paid for but i based my price on what i see on ebay.

    I’m in the market for a DW-5635C “Red Out LE” at the moment. It retailed for $140 when it was released on January 2018. Looking at ebay now, they sell for at least $200 or more. At my local market here, one or two will pop out every now and then with price between $300-450, yes there are still people willing to pay.

    My 'problem' is that I can't part with anything I have. So resale value is unfortunately only a theoretical value to me.

    Air cooled 911s have rocketed in value lately, and like G Squares they haven't altered the near perfect original design to much there are a lot of companies that could learn a lot by these two.
