    G-Shock value over the years ? Plus GW-530A availability

    I noticed a lot of old G Shocks still sell for around 100$ and more.
    Does that mean that G-Shocks do not lose their $ value over the years ? Lets take for example the 140$ "Riseman G-9200" - Is it likely to stay 140$ in 2 years from now ?

    Also, I am looking for a GW-530A but can't find any on ebay, I need it shipped overseas so Amazon is not an option (but they do have it)

    Any ideas ?

    Thanks :) Managed to find a deal for 65$ on that watch.
    What you think ? Good price for that piece ?

    $65 seems very good to me, just be sure that you're buying from a reputable seller. After receiving and wearing the watch, you'll forget about how much you paid for it.

    Awesome, I had second thoughts after pulling the trigger but now I feel pretty good about that purchase.
    Great looking watch.
    Mine is a display piece in mint condition, the brand new ones are around 90-100$ minus shipping

    Nearly all G-Shocks depreciate - and fast. And it isn't entirely straightforward predicting which ones won't.
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    I see.
    How much was the DW-6900 2 years ago ?

    I think there are some crossed communications here. Casio doesn't seem to change the list price of their watches often, if ever. But almost none of their watches 'hold their value' on the used market. In fact, excluding G-Shocks, I imagine the typical 'Casio Watch' has extremely little resell value used.

    But it will probably continue to tell time quite well for many years, in which sense yes- it keeps its value.

    Ah, I see... I interpreted 'lose their value' differently.

    I wouldn't say 'almost none'. At a guess I'd say there are at least 100 (probably more) non-G-Shock Casio models that currently sell for more than their original MSRP. Of course these are models from the 70's and 80's which have now become collectible as vintage digital watches.
