    Topper told me they already took as many pre-orders as they are comfortable with, since they don't have a guaranteed allocation number as of yet.

    Thanks for the info. The release info by Casio seems like this is going to be something regular. I really hope it wont be something limited. I would like to get hold of one but living away from US/EUROPE/ASIA markets makes things really hard if it is a limited edition.

    re: GWM-B5000 Titanium

    Seems like these are going to be very limited. People will have to try hard to even get one. I can't understand why Casio doesn't make a regular production run of watches like these... (unless there are some kind of production constraints that don't allow it) Seems to me they'd make a lot more money...

    Will they come out with a Ti model with a more or less "standard" silver finish? I won't hold my breath. I might be interested if they do.

    Congrats to those who are able to get one of these. You'll be one of the few.

    re: GWM-B5000 Titanium

    Spoke to someone I know in the biz... Seems like they gonna do a run of 1,550. I didn't read all of the articles pertaining to it, so it might be public knowledge already.

    re: GWM-B5000 Titanium

    I got a couple of feelers out, I think will be able to secure one.
    I am wondering if it's worth it to pay a premium and get a Japan AD to sell me one....

    The info released by casio didnt mention anything about it being a limited edition.. they also listed it on casio's international website under their standard digital lineup so i guess that also confirms its not a limited edition..

    The Gear Patrol article posted in another thread says that this watch is not limited, but it has a retail price of around $1,388. I skipped out on the anniversary model with this similar color scheme, so I am really tempted. I have a titanium Citizen Chronomaster and I love the lightweight feel. That said, the price tag is, as expected, on the hefty side.

    I also prefer the look of my GMW-B5000 TFC even though it's on the heavier side. I am definitely more interested and intrigued in this model than the camo model, but I'll have to think about adding another full metal square to the collection. I am kind of full metaled out at the moment -- but Casio just keeps trying to drag me back in lol

    Hopefully MLTD will carry these eventually and allow their 35% coupon discount. That would bring it down to about $900.

    This is interesting news. I spoke with an ad and he told me that they are only doing a run of 1,550. He could be mistaken (or BSing, IDK). I'm curious how the article knows for sure it's not a limited edition. Sometimes Casio doesn't mention those things, even if they are.

    If it is for sure not a limited, I will hold off on doing a pre-order so I can get it at normal discounted online prices.

    The article does not disclose its sources, so we can't be certain. But the information does support M3911's information indicating that this model is a standard production model. The fact that it might not be limited is certainly tempting. It means we don't have to jump on the opportunity or else face much higher prices. I like being able to take my time before a big purchase.
