    For those who are interested, NewEggMall.com is selling the GW-2000B (black case with black resin band) for $160 plus S/H:

    (No, I don't work for them, nor do I have any experience with them one way or another. This is just a FYI...)

    What does Y33K+ mean? $159 is a great price.

    "Y33K+" means "Japanese Yen, over 33,000".

    For instance, Tanaka's site has MSRP at Y33,600, but their discounted price is Y23,520:
    http://watch-tanaka.shop-pro.jp/?pid=12013256

    That's roughly MRSP $335 (US), but discounted for $230 (US), if one uses the exchange rate at Currency Converter:

    Casio USA has the MSRP in the US at $250:
    http://my.casio.com/index.cfm?fuseac...uct=GW2000B-1A

    Hence the NewEgg price of $160 is a pretty steep discount!

    Got it now, thanks.

    Wish I'd have waited that one week, would have saved me quite a bit. Anyone that wants this watch would be hard pressed to pass up at that low of a price. Could even be a typo as it's very low.

    Also, the NewEgg price on the GW-2000BD (version with bracelet) is $223 + S/H:
    http://www.neweggmall.com/Product/20...0/product.html

    Casio USA MSRP is $350:
    http://my.casio.com/index.cfm?fuseac...ct=GW2000BD-1A

    (I'm personally much more interested in the resin band version, because I tend to scuff metal bracelets pretty badly on my keyboard at work, and I don't know how well the Casio black IP coating would hold up on a bracelet...)

    Sorry, I meant it's a little over 33,000 yen.

    This watch is pretty widely available on eBay for under $170 shipped, with no tax.
    Buying more watches does not buy you more time.

    Looking for: Seiko SCVS013; Citizen PMX56-2811; Citizen Campanola CTS57-0701.
