It is offical, JC Penny's has the GW-5600J and the instructions are in only English. But it is the same exact version from the Japan market down to the 20BAR instead of 200m
The sales lady says on Sunday they watches are on sale via scratch and discount thing. If i can get them for $60+ I will buy up the lot for gifts
As was stated the watch is now on casio.com
Looks like Casio be listening to us now.
P.S the 1500 be on its way to down under any day now
