    Taken from the above: ...."The new launch is not a limited edition per se, but will only be produced for a limited time".

    I'm ok with that, it will not be hard to find. But bet that means prices will pretty much stay around msrp

    Maybe that's true. But if your AD friend is correct and they are only producing 1,550 of these.....that is a VERY small number. I also think what some of the dealers have said already is a clue. The G-shock store in Soho is only getting five?? FIVE????? Topper's is already not taking anymore pre-orders???

    That sounds a LOT like what happened before the TFC version was released. I'm not getting one of these so I don't care. But if you guys are banking on the fact that they'll be plentiful and easily available, you just might be sorely disappointed.

    It all depends how badly you want one I guess. If you want it more than any other G you've ever purchased, you might be wise to get your hands on one asap. Or, maybe you'll be right in guessing that you can easily get one whenever you want. At times like this, it might be better to err on the side of caution.

    Honestly, he (Rob from Topper) couldn't give me an answer on any specifics because he didn't know himself, so it could be a not-so limited or it could be an extremely limited; there's no way in telling until he hears back from his vendor. From talking with him I believe he thought it would be a super limited model just wasn't sure of the allocation amount.

    The other AD I talked to mentioned an exact number, and told me he wouldn't know for sure how many he's getting or if any at all until next Wednesday.

    As far as the G-Shock store in SoHo, the guy was explaining to me what usually happens with limited models, I don't think he was being specific about the titanium.

    From what I'm gathering, it seems that there's just a basic assumption that it'll be a limited...
    but those 2 articles seems to contradict that...

    There's a ton of misinformation out there it seems. I am personally not going to take a risk and wait too long, if I can do a pre-order, I definitely will. I expect to pay MSRP on this one anyways.

    You and me and a couple of others on this fabulous G Shock forum have seen this before - If very limited, then a lot here will be scrambling and having sleepless nights not to mention the uncertainty of the price tag - thanks god its not a Frogman and/ or a GPR Rangeman, so I’m cool as well I remember a great F17 member drove in 2014( with his SUV ) on or b4 New Years Eve, all the way from his ( snowy ) hometown Munich to London in order getting the Lightning Yellow Titanium Frogman ( 333 pc worldwide and not less important with a numbered backplate ) Great stuff indeed. Let’s see how this will be unfolding Best of luck to all

    re: GWM-B5000 Titanium

    Also keen to learn more about this in particular the price when it comes to Australia.

    My Black Square is a little on the heavy side but having said that you get used to it.

    A positive display also would be nice and easier to read at a quick glance!

    That’s not fair. This is a $200 Watch in *very* sexy clothing.

    I’m no titanium watch expert but expected less than 110 gms is that similar to other brands also what grade titanium , there is a wide range of grading.
