Following the trio of new model GA310s on Amazon.co.jp's New and Future Releases section since the beginning of the month, I couldn't help but notice the speed at which Amazon Japan pre-sold out of its own pre-release allotment stock of blue and pink versions. The black version followed shortly thereafter when Amazon sold out of that one as well a few days prior to the release date of this past Friday, January 17.
The day the pink sold out on Amazon, I checked Rakuten Global for it and the situation was not too different there either. Most all dealers were already out of stock well before it was released. But I lucked out on the only one still available at Quelleheure. Then came the seemingly long wait for its release and shipment, which was made longer by the Martin Luther King holiday yesterday.
At last, I received it tonight and here's the unboxing of a short while ago.
The "relevant" thing is not a document
Relevance uncovered wrapped in a bag
A good thing within reach
Meticulously bubble-wrapped watch box and neatly folded invoice in an envelope. Love these Japanese touches.
Module 5357P? Could that be for "Pink"
Watch case, Japanese manual scroll and an International Warranty Card with what looks like a serial number of sorts stamped on top.
Open for a color explosion
Pink, white and silver to start with
...And all the rest of it
Reminiscent of a well-made toy
It's gonna take a certain moxie for me to pull this off on my hairy wrist with my usual black garb
...But I don't care. It's going on the wrist tomorrow and it just might stay there for a while to come.
First lume fun
Here's Casio Japan's writeup as processed through Google translator.
From G-SHOCK evolving in pursuit of toughness, and a big case that symbolizes the toughness design has adopted a novel index dial design, New combination model appears.
In addition to black, two colors of shocking pink and metallic blue also line up. I have arranged Arabic dial of large and sparkling gleaming of the same color as the body color to the index of the position 6:00 and 12:00.
Were fused big large index case × × vivid color, each, I finished the design with the impact unprecedented.
Shoot the overwhelming personality in casual fashion scene in the spring, it is the appearance of the New Big case combination model.
