    Maybe these first two will be limited editions, hence the higher price, and they'll be followed by a 'raw' ti standard issue model at a more reasonable price.

    re: GWM-B5000 Titanium

    I skipped the steel squares and not about to skip this one. The negative display makes it even better. Funds are set aside.

    However, I'm disheartened to hear that it will be a limited edition. This means that you have to make a buying decision on day 1 or you can expect to pay even more for the same watch. This will be a sought-after release, to be snapped up quickly. You can't wait to see reviews, check it out in person (unless you live in Japan or near major G-Shock showrooms) or any other move that you'd reasonably make before buying. I understand how it works and why it is done, but IMHO that's not the way a $1,000+ buying decision should be made. The LE scheme puts pressure on everybody. The steel sold great, the titanium will sell similarly whatever the price.

    I'm out of the loop on this one, has it been confirmed only the camo is a limited edition, or are they both?

    Not impossible. However, seeing what happened to the DLC-covered steel version doubt that many would take that chance.

    This is exactly where I'm at too - from what I can see this a watch that I would like to buy, but I'd rather do that at my leisure than having to jump on a preorder, depending on how many in the batch defines 'limited' it could be a struggle to buy one at all which would be very disappointing...
    The high price and limited release will see speculators buy these then wait for the inevitable short term price hike for profits - there is no escaping that :/

    There is an upside to jumping on a LE quickly. If you don't like it, you could sell it back on the second-hand market for slightly under full retail or slightly above rather quickly. Sell the watch for a fairer price than speculators to get a faster sale.

    Exactly! I'm okay with it for sure. Retains value makes it easy to flip should I not be into it.

    If I were you I wouldn't bet the farm on that. When the TFC model came out there were similar claims. Even one guy on here who was "certain" that it had sapphire. Guess what - it didn't.

    I won't believe it until it's been released and sapphire is listed in all of the official specs from Casio, and on the case back of the watch. Until then as far as I'm concerned, it's just a rumor.
