    You know I did not see this coming & I like it

    Seems a bit darker than MM2 Blue

    I have never dealt with New Era online shops will try
    I see 2 on Buyee for 10k more yen than retail @ 29k yen

    Will see

    Wonder if there will be a US release or is this Japan only?

    A very dark navy, Mike, similar to the GA-1000-2A (SAD FACE) is my best guess. Like the white elements, still a little unsure about a stealth, navy blue, although it works in contrast to the busier face of the GA-1000-2A. I think G-SHOCK in white would make it flow better.. So white, navy, white, navy, white...JMO.

    Edit: I see now you meant white letters on that blue & yes agree on that too!

    Agreed Kev & actually an opposite White/Navy Mod is something I have been working on
    I'd show you my paint chops but their so bad

    But similar to this 2006 Gamba Osaka but with a white faceplate I just got off an AC2
    all on a MIJ /FS8

    Now this one is gorgeous! Love the dark blue and white face and white button. Very sharp and clean.

    Going to keep my eyes open for this one as it would go great in my collection. Hopefully it is not limited or too hard to get.

    Thanks Starscream!

    I think looking at the video it has same paper type collab box as others these days like the San Frecce etc.
    Although in Starscreams pic from their online store it just shows the Japanese standard market hinged pillow box
    (Which is actually nicer IMO )

    I am wondering a bit though why they did not do anything on face in the text ring
    This is basically identical to their 2011 Black DW-6900 which I liked when I saw it in pics but lacks the New Era text

    Here is the 2011 face

    keen eye there mr. flying
    seems like they phoned it in, possibly to coincide with an event?

    also i find it very coincidental that it looks very much like our blue heathered gdx remix ;)

    speaking of collabs, i spent a bit of time over the break looking thru fb groups and it seems the "box and band" collabs with <1000 pieces are available to jsut about anyone to create.... actually i vaguely recall someone (sjors?) saying they didnt even need casios approval for the small runs, they went thru a third party. i could be mistaken tho.... but if im not, how about we have an f17 collab?? :D

    actually with all the different tastes on here that could turn out horrible... horribly awesome! bit like the car homer designed lol
