    GXW-56-1B or another Kings - Japan or China

    Hi, I am waiting for my new King GXW-56-1B. I am curious if it will be China or Japan made. I think it will be probably China...but I want to ask GX or GXW owners - do you like your Japan Kings more than your China or Thailand Kings? I had owned many versions of the King over the past 5 years..some of them were China and other Japan made, but I think that they are all the same quality. I had owned one GX-56-1B King where the module was not placed good in the case - and it was Japan made King. Then I had owned several China Kings and everything was as it should be. So I do not bother that my King will probably be China made....

    I had 13 Kings.

    Five GX-56-1A (3 Japan, 2 Thialand)
    Five GX-56-4 (5 Japan)
    One GX-56-GB (Thailand)
    One GX-56-1B (Thailand)
    One GXW-56-1B (China)

    IMHO there is no difference in built quality.

    Cheers, Piowa

    I had 3 GX-56-1A (2 Japan and 1 China)
    3 GX-56-1B (2 Japan and 1 China)
    1 GXW-56-4 - Japan
    1 GXW-56-1B - China
    1 GX-56-KG - China

    1 GX-56-1B was stolen on the way from E-Bay - I already do not remember what country or seller it was

    1 Japan GX-56-1B Japan King had a problem with module position as I wrote above...

    I hope that my King will be here soon and that everything will be all right. I have very nice experiences with one of my Kings - I spent a very nice vacation in Greece in 2012 with the positive King on my wrist....now all my Kings are sold...so I ordered 1B atomic King again and I am very much looking forward that this time it will be a keeper for me


    BTW: It looks that Kings are not so attractive here on Watchuseek since they were discontinued...now it looks that Rangeman is attractive much more...but in the past everyone wanted to own at least one King...now the King is not often on the wrist in the WRUW topic I noticed...the times changed or what happened? For me the King is still the King - now I like it even more because it is not so easy to find most of its versions...is there still some version in production?

    All of mine were from Thailand.

    I still wear my orange non-atomic king from time to time, but I agree I have been wearing less lately because it doesn't fit my wrist very well in winter time, either too loose or too tight. So provided I have some other Gs to choose from I will wear something else until summer comes.

    it's winter and the king is bulky - very inconvenience when putting on/taking off jackets

    i don't post pix here, doesn't mean I don't rock it in real life - I most fun-to-wear would be the orange King, but since I work at night so the positive King get wrist time more often



    then it comes to the Black Gold when I feel it

    then least would be the DGK - because of the color and its current price / LOLz

    Sorry for the OT post: Those leather zulu straps look nice!!! How comfortable are they? I had been eyeing one, but I had my doubts on how comfortable they would turn out to be.

    the strap itself is very soft and comfy and durable, but the whole thing depends on your wrist shape and size - with some G's, the metal black ring of the strap can be rubbing against my wrist bone

    I have had a GX56-1A for several years which I love.

    I just bought a GXW atomic version (Black & Red) on Amazon for $217.99.

    Is the GXW sill in production by Casio or has I been discontinued?

    If discontinued, fake or just old inventory - what do I look for when it arrives on this week?
