    Quick question for GW-5000 / GW-5000B owners

    Did your watch come with a flip open box and a white pillow or a flimsy paper box and grey tin?

    My GW-5000B came in a cheapo box & tin. Am I supposed to get the flip box & pillow?

    Pictures on Seiya's site show the GW-5000 packaged in a box and the GW-5000B packaged in a tin.

    That's not cool The higher priced watch deserves the better packaging.

    Oh well...

    thanks for the links.

    Here's my experience, albeit a slightly different watch but with similar functions.

    The watch I ordered from Chino in Japan is the new GW-6900BC-1JF (negative display). It came in a nice Black Presentation Box with a creme colored pillow supporting the watch. Official Casio tags, in paper and plastic. This particular box which has been pictured elsewhere here on the forum was nearly as nice as the box my Rolex Submariner came in. Frankly I was not expecting the deluxe packaging as this watch was only two thirds of the price of the GW5000, plus it came with the nice bracelet.

    My regular G-6900 came in a tin within the thin paper box, the same as my Riseman packaging.

    Cheers...

    Anyone know if it's possible to change how long the light stays on?

    My GW-5000B was delivered by Seiya-san. It came in a black carton box containing a silver grey circular tin.

    Looks like the 5000 comes in the box and the 5000B in the tin?
