    I actually bought a brand new G for once!

    I'm usually into snagging used from wherever, but I love the look of these and found one on eBay from a UK seller at 76!

    Seemed like a bargain, so I've taken the plunge and ordered tonight.

    It will be interesting to see it in the flesh and find out if they are as bright as the stock photos show!

    Great choice. I'm curious as well about how that looks in real life. Looking forward to some live pics when you get it!

    I'll be looking forward to your impressions. I've been interested in the "Neon" series but can't seem to find any that aren't imported. It's only recently released from what I can tell.

    I looked a while ago when someone created a thread when they were released, and they were definitely only in the Japanese market at that time because I couldn't find any either.

    A quick search yesterday brought up a few on eBay UK, but also on Amazon UK as well. There's a red version and also a multi coloured, but the blue is my favourite.

    The casio USA site has all three at MSRP so I wonder if that indicates the beginning of North American sales or the end.

    Saks and L&T have the GA700SE-1A2 (blue) at MSRP, which is $110.00. Amazon have all three but they're imports and $145.00. Casio is charging MSRP. I also noticed that the shopcasio site lists the release date as September 2017 so I imagine U.S. retailers are just now getting their orders in. It would be nice if by next month we started to see "street" prices and "discounts" at retailers. I'm sure others here have a better idea of the timeline for such things. Also, how popular are these going to be? They might very well sell out before anyone starts selling below MSRP.

    When you take your pictures could I trouble you to take one of the watch in total darkness with the light on?

    I will do, no worries.

    $110 comes in roughly at 82 so not far off what I paid.

    The 7900's are my favourites, although the 56s are currently my focus. But nothing is excluded, except pink Risemans.
