    No doubt! But honestly, if I wanted one, I would have pre-ordered it already.

    Thing is, with these, we don't know how limited the production run will be. Maybe 1,000. Maybe 2,000. Who knows? And given the "firsts" here - first full Ti square, first modern square with sapphire - plus the general coolness of having a Ti square, I suspect there will be high demand for them, despite the price. At times like this though, I recall how hard it was to obtain the TFC version. I got lucky, but could have easily missed it. Truly I think that visions of these new Ti squares languishing on the shelves, or hitting certain retailers for deep discounts, is nothing more than a pipe dream. (actually, I really hope they DON'T hit shelves for deep discounts, or I might lose any little self-restraint I might be showing here...).

    As for the price that ppl keep talking about....sure, I'd agree they are overpriced. But really, what watch over $20 *isn't* overpriced? We could say the same for virtually any expensive G, or any other expensive watch for that matter. No expensive watch that I'm aware of is actually selling for a price equal to the sum of its parts. And yet, they still sell. So yes, we might all wish for a $700 or $800 Ti square, and in a perfect world......ah, but this world is far from perfect!

    For once, I kind of look forward to sitting back and seeing how this all plays out. Will they all be sold out before many people can get their orders in? Or will they be available months after the release date for hundreds off?? Or something in-between those 2 extremes? I guess we'll see!

    I think G-Central made a mistake in saying it has the same deep hardening surface treatment and DLC coating as the MR-G. I read the Google-translated version of the article and it says:

    "Mr. Izumi: For the case of MR-G titanium case, which is the premium line of G-SHOCK, we use a double surface hardening treatment technology: DLC (abbreviation of diamond-like carbon) + deep hardening treatment. On the other hand, it is a new titanium specification, but the same DLC coating used for MR-G is applied to the surface. In addition, I think that we are improving the specs to meet the price, such as using sapphire crystal in the glass to make it more scratch resistant than GMW-B5000D."

    So it sounds like it has the same DLC treatment as the MR-G, but not the deep hardened surface treatment. This is the quote from G-Central:

    "Like the premium MR-G line, the titanium goes through a deep hardening treatment in addition to getting a DLC coating."


    Anyway, I don't think that will change anyone's mind, but G-Central went a little overboard on the specs.

    Yup. Seems like it's not of the same caliber in terms of hardening, so they have to make up for it with the other specs (sapphire).

    Yeah, I guess that's answer as to why Casio doesn't put sapphire crystals on other digital watches like the SS squares... they don't want to play the ace unless they have to.
