    I'll attach a picture of the vintage version from the 90's (right). Note the G mark. Then check the G symbol on the new version in the original post (left) with the G-Spike.

    Hi Bryan -

    They have made HARU-G can's for a long time.

    The watches are delivered domestically in Japan to the retailer with no box:-D

    They arrive in a box with around five or six watches. Similar to a box of Bubblegum at your local candy store.

    It's up to the seller which box they pop the watches in.

    You made a repsonse or mint or new, not really the issue. The re-released yellow 6900 was available in Japan with many boxes. I told the seller the send them in Haru G-Cans as they looked more as the original

    The models, BLACK SPOTS, HELIOS, BRAZILIAN that I used to get from CASIO direct, not a retailer, came with no boxes.
    Once again, it was up to me what boxes I had and put them in

    The plastic bolt box was out of production for many years. Now Casio Japan has re-issued it with a new G logo on it. That is what I wanted to share.

    Enjoy your Gs!

    Hi Bryan -

    I totally agree with you as their is nothing like a good box:-D

    The HARU G-CAN has always been available in Japan in a few different versions.

    I was also selling them once on EBay, and had a few boxes left that stayed behind in Japan. I think around 24 pieces.

    These were given to me in 2005 from CASIO Japan.

    It's very common thing on the Japanese forums as we often discuss about packaging, and indeed packaging is important for Japanese collectors, although not wearers as they only toss the boxes, wood, plastic or cardboard either way

    Thanks for sharing

    Hi Bryan,

    These boxes were actually the boxes they were sold in from the late ninetees until about two years ago in Germany. I have dozens of them. In Japan they have used different types of this box for special editions as several Frogman (My red metallic comes in one) and the Marc Aurelle Codename. Sometimes you see those boxes empty on auction on eBay.de. I believe they ask €1,- to €10,- for them, but are actually rarely sold.

    Here is a box full of them (picture borrowed from Bob from the first Dutch G-Masters meeting):



    Cheers,

    Sjors

    Hi Bryan,

    Very interesting matter. Where does your G-Shock come from (where was it sold, country). I love those big hexagonal boxes, because I make little towers of them, for my solars, that they can rest in the window, getting sunlicht.



    Cheers,

I bought many standard Gs in Japan in the '90s and they always came in the plastic nut box. 'Round about 2001, they started coming in a blue plastic box, a round metal can, or most often, in a black cardboard box.

    I think the reason that particular G-Spike in my original post may be sold in the '90s-style plastic box is because it is nicknamed a '90s Fusion model.

    Hi Bryan -

    In Japan it really depends on the watch and also the retailer as to which box they wish to sell them in. They are fanatic cases. The 2oth anniversary models and also the Japanese Fire Packages came in tins.

    I think most prefer this packaging to cardboard boxes. The blue are great but most Japanese collectors prefer black with a red G as it's the colour of the G-Logograph.

    Devon has the red DW-5000 and hopefully he can post a photo for you to see another very rare case

    Re: Casio's Iconic '90s Watch Box Re-Issued

    Greetings Bryan,
    Thanks for clearing something up for me. I had posted a question sometime ago, asking as to what was the name of this distinctive package. The name haru had come up, but was never made clear as to whether it refered to this or the cans that resembled screw in case backs.
    Thanks for the answer!


    Good to Casio pushing this packaging. Often you'll have seen these packaged with a wipe cloth; a neat feature. Admitedly it's a good idea to use something environmentally friendly. However given that G-shocks are often sold and resold, it's good to have asomething that can last as long as the watch Especially seeing how some manufacturers understood this earlier on. Timex include a usuable pouch with a belt mount for the Ironman I bought some time ago.
