I was playing around on the gshock.com website and saw a new retailer listed under "where to buy", so I went into the store yesterday and saw both U.S. versions of "the king" (black/red and orange). Price was $150. I spoke with the owner of the store for a while and he told me that he simply phoned G-shock and became a retailer - that simple. He also had the black GA100 and the green hyper-colors GA100, and the Dee and Ricky (which is very cool actualy). He showed me a catalogue and said he can personally order ANY G-shock that is in production for me. He then signed me up for a free membership card that gives me 15% off on the G's. I am saving up my money to buy some watches. The king is a massive watch that is awesome. I had my 2 year old daughter with me so I could not spend to much time checking out the watches. I will be going back to the store with a pile of cash real soon. Very happy to have found this store!!
If anyone knows any busines owners, they might want to look into getting a retail account with G-shock.
