    Correct USA Packaging for GR8900 1CR

    Hoping to confirm the correct packaging on this watch. I've seen them come in the metal tin but just read a poor review on Amazon where someone was complaining that his came in the cardboard box and plastic display stand.

    Any idea what it should come in or if it even matters?

    packaging varies from supplier and stores, esp. if its a retail store, they dont care if its the right box or not. but there are also plenty examples where the same model will come in a diff. box esp. from japan. youll literally go crazy if you tried to read logic into it, cos there is none. as long as the watch isnt fake then theres nothing to worry about, you dont wear the box ;)

    This, although I'm fairly sure that doesn't apply to some models (like the GPR-B1000, which I believe always comes in the same packaging?)

    Could come either way, depending on how Casio shipped them to the vendor.

    Usually North America vendors get the box, but not always.

    If you buy from Asia, usually get the tin can, but not always.

    Unless it's a limited edition packaging can be a tin, blue and white box with black stand, or a fancy black hinged box with pillow. Even more variety in older models, the hex plastic case, the white headphone tins, plastic hard shells, plastic cubes...

    yea, i prob shouldve mentioned, premium models like gpw, mrgg's and LE's are usually more consistent with packaging but thought that was getting a bit off track from a garden variety 8900.
