    I'm not buying the watch for resale value. I'll be wearing it as a G Shock, it could be scratched, dinged whatever and boom there goes any upside the LE ever had.

    The leaked catalogue pages show 'sapphire glass' in English on the icons on the left of the picture of both the new ti watches - that is official?

    That's official enough for me!
    Whether I actually manage to get hold of one, is another thing all together!
    I actually paid for my TFC in advance and the AD still couldn't get me one. So, until it's actually on my wrist, it's all just speculation, for me.

    For me? No, it's not. Catalogs can have mistakes. But I don't really care anyway as I'm not getting this one.

    Mmmmm......it depends how limited it is. If it's very limited like the TFC is, even a few scratches or a ding would still get you far above retail price if you chose to sell it - virtually guaranteed. On the other hand, if it is THAT limited, it might be very hard to come by in the first place. Let's hope they are available to those who want them.

    Yeah, it makes sense. You could still sell a bruised GWG Maharishi or GWM TFC above retail. I hope it won't be THAT limited or else the release will be a stressful time. The TFC sold out so quickly that even most ADs couldn't get hold of one. So Casio, please don't make the titanium square an ultra rare collab model.

    re: GWM-B5000 Titanium

    Finally some photos:

    Zona Casio: También habrá camuflaje para el GMW-B5000 de titanio

    I like both. This spells trouble. According to the text there should be a €300 price difference (+/-€100) between the two versions. The DLC titanium bracelet of the TB is clearly visible.

    re: GWM-B5000 Titanium

    I actually kind of like the camo in these pics, but could not care less about the DLC. Hopefully there will be a silver titanium release after this that isn’t LE. I feel like it’ll happen...

    re: GWM-B5000 Titanium

    The glossy finish on the titanium from the Zona photos is strange, but I'm guessing that's just from the DLC coating and lighting. Not sure why they're trying to make titanium look like resin, lol. Will have to see better photos of this one. Not a fan of the camo version at all though. Camo seems more appropriate for lower priced resin squares, not higher end models.

    re: GWM-B5000 Titanium

    The gloss of that DLC is sort of a let down IRL. Like many others, I think I'll be on the sidelines cheering for a raw Ti finish.
