I hope this is not what the price will be like if if comes to the US retailers!

I see that there is one on the SuperChrono site for $650! I realize it is the Japan version with the special box maybe?

I crossing my fingers that Ill be able to see one at a Macy's soon.

Has anybody seen one elsewhere? Im liking it a lot but geeze!!

Superchrono is a bit weird that way, some of their watches is priced just right and afew is even baragins but then we have others that is prices way to high and that inlcudes this one. It might one day be worth that much when it becomes a collectors item and rare on the market, but right now the Japanese market is flooding with them and I can see currently over 160 of them sold on Yahoo Japan

The retail price is 28350 JPY which is $269 USD and that is a price commonly found on Yahoo. Here is the cheapest one I saw:

http://page18.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/w25272258

currently at 25.500 JPY which is $242.50USD

To buy it though you need to use a commissioner Service like FromJapan and that combined with shipping costs drives the price up a bit. I calculated roughly what I would cost if I bought it trough FromJapan and had it shipped to me in Sweden and I came up with the final sum of about 30775 JPY (untill June 22 they currently have a campaign with a flat commissioners fee of only 500JPY otherwise it would have cost even more) anyway 30775 JPY is $292USD shipped and ready...

I presume the cost would be similar to the US!

Incase you do not want to go the adventurous route trough FromJapan there is one japanese seller on e-bay selling it for $349USD or $364USD including shipping to the US:

Here is another one for $365USD shipped to the US:

Superchrono has great prices on Citizen but the frogman prices are outrageous! I guess they know how hard they are to find and what people will pay.

It's actually anything that has a wiff of LE about it...

...they'll charge through the arse for it. <|


My personal favourites are the 'list' price for a DB Frog being $600 and the G9100TC being MIJ with tough solar...

...all I can do is lol. :-d :-x

We're all wondering that. Any day now, could be tomorrow, could be next week. I've been trying to remember to check MyCasio.com every day and I usually check eBay as well. I'm sure you'll see a post when they show up somewhere, especially for less than MSRP.

I just paid my GW-225E. It was not expensive (lets say around retail price), including shipment to the Netherlands. I guess the customs will add a little pepper to the price. I hope they be gentle on me a little, because I am pretty broke now (with also a DW-5025SP incoming) and June had just begun.....

Cheers,

Sjors
