    Which Square is More Collectible and Why DW-5030-1JR or DW-5030C-1JR ?

    Curious to know what collectors think about the collector status and value of these two 30th Anniversary G-Shock screw-back models released in 2013? DW-5030 came with the G-Man set and 5030D, and 5030 was sold on its own as part of the Resist Black theme, 2013 pieces from what I'm told. Don't know how many 5030's were sold but I know it is a re-issue of the original DW-5000C-1A. Cheers!

    I can tell you it was way more than 2013 pieces. The dw-5025sp was 2008 pieces and it is near impossible to find outside yahoo japan auctions. The dw-5030c is much more common than that.

    real collectors buy 2 of each - who knows what the future decides ? maybe Gshocks will become a joke like barbies dolls ?

    What's ironic is that original Barbie dolls probably last longer than G-Shocks.

    My guess would be that a complete set (DW-5030, DW-5030D and G-Man) BNIB would be the most valuable.

    There is not a lot information on these. Like I said I read '2013' somewhere, besides I don't see many for sale. I know they were imported to UK and USA, probably Singapore. There are 2 on Ebay at the moment.

    Maybe you should collect them then.

    CF, I have been thinking about GW-T5030C, but prices seem to be going up. There were 200 made. Don't know if parts are available to build one.

    Parts not available to build. If anything comes up you send yours back to Casio Japan. Or else you put non-GWT parts on it. This G is very unique in the world of G-Shocks. This is one of those aspects.

    sent with aloha
    Yes, I am OCD. What gave it away?

    I see, thanks. Guess even if you had one, using as a daily beater would be risky without your own parts. I mean who's to know when Casio will just stop making them. I think these are getting to expensive for my liking anyway, moving into used Rolex Sub Territory.

    Do you have many screw-back G's?
