Dear G-Shock experts:
I am looking at purchasing a G-Shock GW-A1000-1A or similar.
I know that many Japanese brands make different variations of similar products for various parts of the world. For example, I have a JDM-only Citizen that is in a different league of materials, build quality and fit and finish, compared to Citizens available here. It was also considerably pricier.
As far as the GW-A1000 is concerned, what would be the difference between the GW-A1000-1A, which can be bought domestically for around $320, and the GW-A1000-1AJF that is available at $450+ from JDM sellers? Are there any differences at all?
What about the GW-5000? Are there different version, and what are the pros and cons of each?
Thanks for your input!
