    Hi Sjors -

    That was a sarcastic statement more in relation to the CHEAP price.

    We often say:

    "They fell off the back of a truck"

    = Very cheap, hard to get, rare, etc.

    You would be hard pushed to find these models in Japan at that price and I'm sure virtually non existent in Australia.

    Maybe I think Europe next time I want rare G-Shock's:-D

    Hi Ozz,

    I believe they are normal priced for NOS stuff. Remember it's in €, not US$ or AU$.

    Cheers,

    Hi Pipes,

    I guess you wrote in your best Ferench :-D They except Paypal and the other things were pretty clear, so I guess yuo could come far with "Bonjour Monsieur" and "Au revoir..."

    Cheers,

    Hi Sjors -

    Well, according to me it converts to around US$52 which is very cheap, not forgetting I am comparing them to Japan prices as I used to live theirB-)

    I would guess a new one of these would cost minimum in Japan around ¥14,000

    I'm not into this saying of "NOS". I prefer New and Un-damaged, or new with damage if that makes sense:-D

    Salut et au revoir

    Re: Are these real?

    With his shipping to the USA it came to $67.86 USD .... a tad HI in shipping but not a bad deal ..
    The watch was what Sjors said and the rest is shipping !IMO ..

    But since there such a BIG G I here 50mm and 18mm thick the price is really good since its NOT made anymore ? I really wonder when it was made what year you guys know ? Also do you know were it was made Japan ? or Thi or Korea ???

    comon term here in the USA is NOS

    Hi Pipes -

    Maybe ask him..

    I would say that the batteries have been changed as they surely would have been dead due to the age.

    No doubt it was a backyard change job

    Let us know when they arrive

    It might look so at first, but I just checked the DHL website and if I'd ship the watch from here (Germany) with the cheapest options (no warranty if lost, etc.) it would come to $66.52 USD (no packing materials or anything included here). I guess in France it might be pretty much the same.

    In short: you made a good deal here, congrats!
