    Question GW-A1000A vs GW-A1000D? JDM Only?

    Hi all, I got these two incoming and I know that the GW-A1000D has the bracelet while the GW-A1000A is blue-accented. However, when I try to find more details regarding the GW-A1000A, I cannot find a lot on it. Is it JDM only? The Casio US and G-Shock websites only list the GW-A1000 and the GW-A1000D. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

    The GW-A1000 is available albeit somewhat scattered in the US now. I picked up mine locally in Los Angeles last week. There are currently 3 sellers on Amazon with them in stock. I bought mine from Altivo Timepieces at their physical store.

    Hey thanks, that is the GW-A1000A and not the GW-A1000. I guess my question was about official release. How much did you get yours for anyway? I have one incoming but can't even find the retail price on it in the U.S.

    US Retail price is $520.00 which is exactly what I paid for mine. $20 more than the standard model, $80 less than the bracelet model.

    I purchased mine domestically, so I would say yes, although I am not sure all the sellers that will be selling have received their stock yet. Some get their shipments earlier than others.

    Thanks. Since I have both incoming, I am contemplating if I should keep both or not, and if I only keep one, which one would it be. From experience, the bracelet is more comfortable but if the blue one is more rare then I might go that way. We shall see!
