Took delivery of my Tokyo Twilight yesterday. Beautiful watch. It has a dark glossy finish that looks like liquid metal. Not really that blingy at all, but sparkles in the light.

And yes it does have a purple tinted LCD, which sets it apart from the other metal squares. Casio did a great job on this one.
Congrats! Beautiful pics! I didn't know it had a purple tinted LCD. Pretty cool detail :)

Dang beautiful purple! Way better than the stock photos. Enjoy! I love this color way.

Thanks for the kind words, fellas. Here's a side-by-side between the PB-6 and the V-1 so you can get a better sense of the purple negative STN LCD versus the normal version. It's more subtle in person, but definitely noticeable.

Nice comparison with the Patina version 👍👌

Got an "In stock" email from Topper today, except it was actually just one watch and it sold immediately 🙄 Apparently these are quite hot, no talks of a discount whatsoever. We'll see what pops up for sale on the forums

I've got one incoming tomorrow. Tried for a discount, didn't get one, but that sometimes happens. ;)

Congrats! I may cave eventually lol

I think what stings the most is I bought my black one like new for like $300. So paying double the price has me teetering
You could try waiting to see if decent pre-owned ones pop up for under MSRP. Of course that could backfire in a big way depending on how limited the production really is. Sometimes these limited production models end up being widely available for a while before they fade away. Other times they're difficult to acquire from the beginning and it never gets easier. It's always a gamble. But that's what makes it so joyously fun! :p

Looks hot indeed; my local dealer announced that there will be no discounts of 699 EUR price tag 😔 Luckily there are cheaper stores in EU; 549 EUR seems to be the best at the moment.

Still waiting for this on Casio UK. They tend to get decent stock so I’m hoping there’s enough to go around. Would be interesting to compare to the TR9, it looks a lot more subdued in actual pictures.

Me: NEVER get up at 8:00am or earlier.

Me, knowing my PB will be delivered today: set alarm for 8am, and wake up before it even goes off! 🤣

UPS next-day air came thru in great form, delivering as promised before 10:30am. (y)

I am suuuuuuuper impressed with this watch. Keep in mind I have the TCM Ti square, the Porter, the silver, and the B5000G. And I've owned the all-black, the B5000V aged IP, and both the gold positive and gold negative display versions. This version IMO is one of the best. (especially if you're fond of purple! And if you're not - you should be.. 🤣)

The purple border around the screen shows up in lower light and looks really cool. The multiple colors on the dial are NOT garish at all, and can only be seen in good, direct light. In lower light, it has a darker, sleek vibe while still allowing the purple and blue tones to come through. It looks VERY good overall and I'd highly recommend it if you're on the fence about it.

Like most watches, this one looks better in person, but hopefully some of these pics still look good.

That purple IP was done really well, IMO. Great job, Casio!! Check out those dial colors!
