    difference between MTG-S1000BD-A vs. MTG-S1000BD-1AJF

    Sorry if this had already been discussed previously in other threads, but just wanted to confirm to see this is the same with all other JDM G-Shocks that they are essentially the same watch, but the JDM version always cost more since it is JDM?

    And all MTG metal twisted watches are made in Japan right?

    Appreciate any current owners can chime in/comment.

    Not sure about JDM pricing. In many cases I suspect it's because sellers know they have a relatively scarce (to the rest of the world), somewhat collectible watch that people will pay more for, so they raise the price.

    As far as "metal twisted watches" go, I have an MTG-900 that was made in Thailand, so they're not all made in Japan.

    I think it also depends on which country you are viewing JDM prices on. Starting with currency differences.

    But from there I notice a HUGE difference when looking at G's on yahoo Japan and rakuten vs ebay . Just saying a lot of times it is the seller.

    Thanks guys. I am still holding out for the prices to hopefully come down a bit since the metal twisted MTGs are still a bit more than what I want to spend right now. But just keeping an eye for these and noticed the delta in pricing so was wondering...

    My understanding is that all of the MTG-S1000 models are made in Japan at the Yamagata factory.
