Of all of the years I have been in and out of this forum my all time favorite G is the GPW 1000. I bought number 5 on eBay while I was vacationing with the family this week. Has anyone else noticed that in the last 10 days that the price of this watch has gone through the roof? I can only assume inventory is dwindling and it must be on the precipice of extinction. I hope not but we have the GPW 2000 and the watch will outlast the model run.
