Hi guys, my g shock MTG 950 is a little bit too small for my wrist and I want a bigger g shock. I have been looking and drooling for a week now and have developed a serious crush on the GW 200BC-1JF Black Helios. I believe this is a Master of G.
A few questions for the experts and those in the know:
Japan or elsewhere? I read that the Japan made G's are of better quality than the made elsewhere ones. Can somebody shed a little light on this or clear up any misconceptions?
Availability Is this a hard to get ahold of model? Is it a non-current model or is it still being produced?
Best place to buy I would seriously like to acquire the Black Helios. Can somebody point me in the right direction. I live in Canada and would like to know where to go to purchase one. Assuming the Japan model is the better one (if this is the case at all), I would like to purchase a Japan made model. Everyone on the Sinn forum knows the abuse I put my watches through so I would definitely be looking for the best made one.
Prices What price would I be looking at for this? If it still retails, what's it going for? If it is non-current, what's the market range for this model?
Also, any info anybody has on the Black Helios would be greatly appreciated including pics, pics and more pics. I think I am becoming a G-shock froggaholic. I do not want a 12 step program but want to seep deeper into the dark froggy depths and become a shockasaurus like you guys!! I surrender!!
thanks in advance,
