    Japanese G-Shocks

    I've found two watches on the Japanese Casio site that I am in love with.

    First, the Riseman in Burning Red:

    GW-9200RDJ-4JF -

    Second, the GXW-56E-1JF in Black x Blue:

    GXW-56E-1JF -


    Why is it that we can't get such unique G-Shocks in the US? I'd be very interested in purchasing these, but I imagine I can't find them at a reasonable price anywhere. That is, unless someone can point me towards a good shop. :)

    i've seen the blue 56 before, but that red riseman is awesome! would be nice to get a white riseman and switch the case out, make a stormtrooper riseman :)

    That Riseman is looking great. My friend Yamazaru-san showed me his latest additions on his collection a few weeks ago. As "Risefreak" he of course had this model.



    The watch is widely available in Japan now, as is the whole Men In Burning Red and Burning Red series. Not quite cheap though. I thought some of these red models were also available for the US... Else, think globally and order one at Seiya-san (Seiya Japan) or Katsu-san (Higuchi-inc).


    Cheers,

    xiton,
    You can buy this watches from international sellers at rakuten or ebay.

    IMO - this is the best looking watch from GX(W) series

    Sjors,
    Overall it looks nice. But they shouldn't use the red paint on word "SENSOR".
    And i think, that later, strap will change color on the edges..... it will not be very pleasant!
