    Casio "“Because it takes so much work, we can’t put it out without limiting the production period. However, using titanium makes it 57 grams lighter than stainless steel, so I would like more people to actually get the ‘lightness.’"

    Really, working on Tit has been done for decades, there are plenty 200$ titanium watches. And if I can mill custom tit grade 5 knife scales in my basement that have perfect fit it shouldn't be a challenge for their high tech industry equipment.

    If I want lightness I wear a square that comes with resin bezel and strap not a full metal construction.


    Its nice that they went back to titanium though. I am hoping for a sensible GW5K - Titanium update with resin parts in the future.
    A TI GW-5000 -- I would pay 500 bucks for that. :)

    By the way, the camo square looks a lot cooler in Acadian's photos.

    Agreed. Wasn't a fan on it initially and now taking another look.

    Let's be honest here. These things are worth 700-800 max, if that. But Casio will sell 'em for twice that cuz fools like us will buy 'em.

It was Grandfather's and when Father gave it to me he said I give you the mausoleum of all hope and desire.... I give it to you not that you may remember time, but that you might forget it now and then for a moment and not spend all your breath trying to conquer it."

    It's the sales ladder.
    Casio: Here's a 50 dollar watch that works just fine.
    Sales: People bought it.
    Casio: Add solar and mb6 and charge 100. Sales: People bought it.
    Casio: Add a screw back and nicer strap, charge 250.
    Sales: They're still buying it.
    Casio: Make it stainless and charge 500. Make a gold one for a little more.
    Sales: yup. They bought em.
    Casio: Hmm. Try titanium and 1500?
    Sales: they're gonna buy it.
    Casio: make it camo and charge another 150!

    If we keep this up, well get a 3k one made out of gold woven carbon fiber next... one outta unicorn hoof resin after that.. which I'll prob buy if it looks cool.

    Where does the 18k gold square fit into the mix? At $70k there's nowhere else to go.

    Guilty as charged. If you feel the same and want to offload that TFC, I'll gladly take it off your hands.
