    Re: A THOUSAND DOLLAR G-SHOCK!!

    I just started collecting G Shocks early this year and I noticed this year seem to have a lot more models launching most probably due to this year being the 30th Anniversary. I am aware of some really expensive G Shocks being released in other years but this year seems to be scaling higher and higher. Will G Shocks go the way of Luxury watches? As in pricing and exclusivity of certain models? It certainly does seem that way to me and honestly, Casio seems to be doing a successful job in pricing G Shocks up high and still there is so much demand. I am impressed and sometimes I do get the urge to go all out and grab those models but luckily I am limited with my extremely limited budget.

    "A THOUSAND DOLLAR G-SHOCK!! "

    Hmm, does that really come as a surprise?

    We've had US$3000+ G-shocks like MR-Gs around for some time now, as well as high-priced MT-Gs.

    That said, there won't be many queuing up to spend that much on a hybrid resin/steel quartz watch these days

    Stories like this do make me think that Casio may be attempting to venture upwards to the next price bracket. As we know there have already been a fair few Gs at $1000 plus (although many limited to the Japan market). Stories like this usually originate in a press office not an eagle eyed journalist.

    The title theme says it all. A $1000 G-Shock has never existed before outside Japan (exclude F17 and G-Shocker communities of course). I guess it will shock the world. People will check it out. And after Casio sponsored some famous celebrities with MTG, it will sell well. It likes people got to have an iPhone years ago.

    I hope Casio could learn something from the iPhone lesson, you can be at the top for a while then the next day you are at the bottom of someone else.

    I don't think it will sell well, the MTG isn't like a frogman that already has an intense and cult like following. Apart from collectors and strong afficionados, any casio will always be perceived as a cheap plastic digital watch.
