    Well you've just answered your own question

    Casio buckles are made by Casio factories in countries ranging from Japan, China, Indonesia, Thailand and probably one more. All should be similar in quality and function, although the ones made in Japan will always be preferred amongst collectors.

    That's all there's to it really...

    Yep, it's just a buckle. And a G-Shock's overall worth is always greater than its individual parts.

    This thread made me do a quick check on the buckles of my current Gs:

    DW-9051 - Indonesia
    G-9200 - China
    G-9100 - Japan
    G-9000 - Japan
    GW-5600 - Indonesia
    DW-9051/2
    G-9200 Riseman
    G-9100 Gulfman
    G-9000MC-8D Mudman
    GW5600J
    GA-100A-9A

    Sucks to be without a G.
