    When will the new G-Shock price drop?

    i was eyeing GW7900B and didnt know the price is around $200.
    dont you guys think it's a bit overpriced? is it because it is new model?
    anyone knows how long the price of new model will drop after release date?

    Re: When will the new G-Shock price drop?

    That all depends. Some prices never drop - for example so far I haven't really found a good price for a standard GW-M5600 yet that was much lower than MSRP - at least not on German ebay. Same is true for the GW-9000A and a few other models. Some models do drop in price some don't. But most often the ones that get sold cheaper than MSRP are the high price models - at least when there's enough of those around - that's probably because when the price seem too high, and there are a lot of specimen produced, the price simply can't stay as high as it was. When production numbers are small - prices will stay high till they're all gone. Basic economy I'd say. Demand and supply is what sets the price. So one can't tell if the GW-7900B will ever drop in price as long as we don't know anything about production numbers and demand for that model.

    thanks for the quick reply, Sedi!
    yeah, maybe that's true, given this model is only launched in Japan.
    I guess the production number will be small, huh?

    I'd suggest the price will drop on these significantly (ie. to around Riseman/atomic Gulfman levels) once they become more available outside of Japan.

    While I agree it's expensive, it's all relative. This one seems to be properly priced and I would not expect it to go down in price anytime soon. However that's just a guess on my part from watching prices very closely over the last six months or so. About the only option is to wait and see, just realize that it may be quite some time, if ever.

    Cheers...

    If your luck is anything like mine, the price will drop 2 weeks after you get one.

    Now _that_ is probably the most accurate response so far....

    that's actually what I'm afraid of
    waiting for so long, and decide to buy (before the price drops) then suddenly the price goes down after buying.

    I guess there is no time better than now, huh?

    Just follow your heart and buy what you like and will enjoy wearing. For most of the G-Shock models price fluctuation once you've purchased it and started wearing it, is pretty much irrelevant.

    Good luck on choosing that special one

    That would be my best guess, too. I'd suggest keeping an eye on the likes of Amazon or eBay once the model becomes available internationally.
