    I'm truly excited to see what they come out with next. I just hope they don't out price many of us again.
    Where are you guys pre ordering these two titanium watches? I just recently purchased the GMWB5000GD-1 and the IP coating is already rubbing off on my clasp after 3 days of wear. Pretty frustrating. I would not mind picking up one of these titaniums to wear since they wont have this problem. Can anyone point in the right direction to pre-order?

    You must be pretty hard in your Gs.....had my black SS for months, and not a scratch.....now the silver has picked up clasp scratches from desk diving, but that’s it.....

    CF is very durable but I managed to ding CF knife handles accidentaly dropping them (Spyderco uses high quality CF), getting it to splinter should be near impossible, still we are talking G-Shock and they are usually tested and used very extreme by some :D
    Your Spyderco most likely chipped because most of their scales aren’t full carbon, they are peel-ply on top of G10

    Just now saw this. I’ve been living under a rock apparently. I love it.

    IDK this is my first gshock and I have only been typing on a computer at work (I'm an R&D engineer so mostly office environment) and after only 2-3 wears at my desk the clasp has two large streaks of wear. I contacted customer support and they said it should hold up much better than that. Maybe mine is an anomaly but I went ahead and pre ordered the titanium with DLC from topper Jewelers this afternoon. Hopefully that one should be able to handle some desk rubbing. I really just want a nice watch that's nearly indestructible.

    No, currently using the Logitech mx keys keyboard that just came out. But I just thought the IP coating would've been a lot thicker or durable I guess.
