    looks like the bloom is off the Rose

    always check watchrecon for G-Shocks and divers for sale and could not help but notice there are no less than 7 GWM-B5000 steel squares listed.I have no affiliation with any of the sellers but this might indicate these were flaming hot for a while but the demand has cooled significantly.wondering if there just to heavy,I pref Resin but thats me.

    Cheers
    John

    What I'm seeing are steels listed above MSRP. I think we can say demand has "cooled" once they're listed at or below MSRP, signaling that the speculators are giving up.

    I'm guessing almost all for sale are people trying to profit - not a change of heart.

    For some members here though -- like Steelerswit, and Kubr1ck -- they have so much inherent "bad-a**ery" that when they put on a bad-a** watch, the energy flows from them TO the watch, making the watch EVEN MORE bad-a**!!! Yes, it's a real scientific phenomenon that obscure mad scientists only recently discovered.

    Not had my B-5000 long but already I know that most of my other G’s would go before that one. Don’t worry B1000 Rangeman you’re perfectly safe.
