    Where could i buy this futuristic G-Shock?

    Supposedly it's a model G-056-3V, but from what i could find out, it's an old discontinued model. Still, i think it looks like a watch straight from a futuristic sci-fi movie. It's like Lamborghini Aventador of the watches if you know what i mean.

    Plus, it's solar powered and atomic and looks just straight up awesome. If there are any newer models from these series, bring them up as well.
    It doesn't matter how much the watch costs, it only matters if it makes your heart tick.

    The watch pictured above is NOT solar/atomic.

    Picked these up recently, one on eBay the other here on f29. Believe these are the thinnest G-Shocks ever made.
    While these 2 look similar with same styling, they have different modules and completely different capabilities.

    G-056 is not solar atomic but does other tricks. The GW-056 is solar & atomic.

    Would the 2-band waveceptor receive in Slovenia where the OP is located?

    Maybe from the German transmitter.

    Amazon.UK has two G-056 available. They will not ship to USA for some crazy reason.

    What I am asking is if this is one of those atomics that only receives from the USA and Japan but nowhere else?

    Or is it a three band, and receives from a third transmitter as well?

    Think Casio waveceptor of this vintage were 4 band. Reception in US, UK, Germany and One of the Japan frequencies.

    Re: Where could i buy this futuristic G-Shock?

    My understanding is that prior to Multiband 5, CASIO produced three different versions of Solar/Atomic models:

    1. domestic version which received either of 2 radio stations in Japan and the Fort Collins, USA radio station. (3-band)
    2. A USA version which received ONLY the the Ft. Collins, USA radio (1-band)
    3. A European version which received either Anthorn, England or Mainflingen, Germany (2-band)

    So you needed to purchase the correct version if you wanted it to work in your area.

    EDIT: Ya, after looking at Pacparts, I'm fairly sure that this is the case. So taking the base vanilla version, you had GW-056A (America), GW-056E (Europe) and GW-056J (Japan)
