Are the GWG-2000s shipping today or tomorrow? At the G-Shock site the Pre-Order button is now Buy, but out of stock. I pre-ordered, so don't know what happens next. Any ideas?

About an hour ago I got notification that mine has shipped. But I have an account with FedEx, so it was from them direct.

I have still yet to recieve an email from CasioUS.

So if yours isn't on it's way already, it should be soon. I paid for expedited shipping, so mine should be in my hands tomorrow!:D
Lucky you 👍. Yes, got an email last night 11:38pm from Casio directly that the watch has been shipped, arriving tomorrow. My invoice was emailed at 1:45am today. Counting the minutes. So guess that things are moving, hope everybody get their watches soon. I don't know if marketing hype, but now the site has watches available, after a couple of days with the Sold Out button. Anyway, looking forward for it.

Got it this past Saturday. My first impression was that this watch is well worth the price, something that I was somewhat doubtful. Pictures do not does justice to the watch, bet a lot of Casio designers spent long nights at their desks. The materials are high quality, and the design is really nice, minimalistic, not much of clutter on the dial as some Gs. There are some things that I would have liked for Casio to change, first the size, guess they could have made it a bit smaller, 57-58mm, it would have been nice as an everyday, everywhere watch. Also, for some reason it doesn't sit as well on my wrist as my GSW-H1000 that is a little bigger, but it feels more comfortable that I even forget that I am wearing it. Maybe it has to do with the design in the back bumpers. The band of the GSW is also softer but sturdy, like that one very much. And, finally the contrast between the dial and the hour/minute hands is very poor. In the pictures it looks like the hands are lighter but in real life, they are a shade of gray that is darker, thus not easy to see at first glance. The white mode arrow is more visible. But overall, this watch is a killer, love it with the little faults, the face has a lot of movement depending on the light, it is an awesome effect. No doubt this will be one of my favorities. Was very surprised in a good way.

Hi Everyone
I'm new to this forum but not to WUS having previously owned an Omega Planet Ocean 45.5mm ,SS with orange bezel, I do have a 9400 Rangeman and 30 minutes ago I ordered a GWG1000 1a3ERwhich should arrive tomorrow.
It has been an infuriating search for a specific combination of features I wanted ,but I have had to compromise and spend extra to get the exact combination that I wanted, which are the white numerals and markers on the dial and a black strap.
In Casio world, that doesn't exist. Annoyingly to me, the 1aER that has the white numerals comes with a green strap , the 1A has the black strap but yellow ish numerals.
I live in the UK , so the watch will arrive tomorrow but the black band will be another week or so because the only one I could find at a decent price is coming from Japan, then I have to find a way to change the strap , I have watched video's on this but I haven't got the little tool for pulling the small pins out.
It's a shame they don't come with a black strap as standard , my 2nd choice would be yellow but the 1A9 again has the different numerals and a red arrow frustratingly.
I actually imported my Rangeman from Japan because the JDM one had a carbon fibre strap as standard whereas the ones in the UK had a normal resin strap.
I wish I knew why the 1A3ER comes with the green strap and thought that combination was a good idea , at this pricepoint , you should be able to choose to get the exact combination you want.
Agree, Casio should offer more options. In some new watches they are making the exchange of straps more easy, wish we see this trend covering all their new watches.

It’s a video on a group on fb . Doesn’t effect me personally .
There is a huge variable in fairness . Sweat, conditions worn.
It’s just to make wearers aware of it is going to be a daily beater, think twice or keep on top cleaning wise. It’s far from the first G to be effected with strap discolouration . Won’t be the last. The new frog (apparently ) do have some coating to prevent stains. On this price bracket , I would have expect the same!
If you could get some screen grabs of the issues. Also any input on the owner, did he handle chemicals for example, or was normal use? It would be more helpful, don't you think?
