    I need help finding the perfect JDM G-Shock

    Hello everyone, this is my first time venturing over to this subforum. I've owned a G-Shock since well before my WUS days but haven't had a need or desire for a new one. Well I've decided to sell a couple of my watches that I don't wear much due to a few different reasons. One of them being my Damasko DA36 which has always been my work watch. I would like to take a small portion (under $300) from selling that and get a new work watch, thus my current search for a G-Shock.

    I seem to prefer the look of the smaller body G-Shocks such as the class 5600s. I'm also looking preferably for something JDM. If you're into cars at all then you probably know Subaru kids love their JDM toys. I think it would be fun to have a JDM watch again to go along with my Forester (not JDM, just to clarify - I wish though). So if you guys have any suggestions I would really appreciate it. The only one I really know of is the DW-5600BB-1JF which I like but I would like to view some other options as well. Oh and models that are Solar/Atomic are much preferred if they exist.

    Buy the seller, I suppose. Seiya-san is a good guy, though his prices are a little higher as it is more of a hobby.

    I really like that one idkfa and to be honest going through someone like Seiya, Chino, or Higuchi is preferable if possible.

    Seiya is an upstanding gentleman, though I have to admit I have only purchased parts from him. I have no reason to suspect any issues with watch purchases given the praise I have seen.

    I purchased my GW-5000 and OCW-S100 from Chino and they were great to deal with. They inspect each watch before sending it out and they even take care of the warranty card.

    There is something to be said about good customer service ad paying a little extra for it. The "extra" is a relative term depending on one's income level and if they are frugal or not.

    Although some of the sellers on Rakuten (even those offering the lowest prices) often have great service. There have been multiple times I bought the lowest priced item and got an extremely well packed watch along with extra gifts like candy and casio key chains for free

    I bought mine back when they were selling for $420 back in 2012. Do I regret it? No, I don't.
    $230-280 is definitely a steal.
