    Just wait till the market is saturated and then go to an AD and you can usually score one at a discount.....

    I don't think there is much demand anymore. I see the same used pieces being continuously relisted...... I'd give it maybe 6-12 months max....

    I’ve been waiting for GW5000 to drop below $100 mark my whole life.

    If you can get one for $300, it will be a pre-worn piece on ebay. I don't see unworn ones breaking list price for a very very long time, if ever. You may be able to score a coupon deal on a new one, but you would (1) need the coupon deal to apply and (2) would have to find one in stock somewhere. There is an auction for an unworn one on ebay closing in 40 minutes which is bid up to $620+shipping. Good luck.

    I think the lowest 5000 I've seen on the classifieds was priced at around 200. Keep looking! :)

    Have you tried talking to your local jewelers? Alot of jewelry shops also sell watches and sometimes they are willing to make a deal.
