If the module is indeed new, the price could be justified by giving it GPS time-setting capabilities. Still, to double the price just for that is a huge rip-off.Yep. It's either dish out $4K for one of these, or $3K plus for a pre-owned Porter. Or, none of the above. 🤪
I agree, the lock on the clasp would be nice. That always gives me extra assurance that the watch isn't going anywhere once I'm wearing it. I imagine it would thwart any pickpocket's plans.
I'm still having a hard time imagining such a high price for the MR-G square. Can't wait to hear the details that "justify" it. (in Casio's minds, at least!) 🤣
But, let's say the module is the same or almost. Sure, marketing can come up with "tougher than the toughest material".
Marketing could also go the exclusivity route: yeah, this is basically a red border titanium but there is the MR-G printed there and if you want to be one of the privileged few to have it, please give us some $3,300 ON TOP of the $1,200 you gave for a $100 piece with a $1,100 armor. Count Dooku, if he were alive would have said:
- Good! Triple the price, triple the [the wallet money will] fall.
Finally, I had to ask myself: which sort of overkill features besides a new module would grasp my attention and give that "I want it" feeling?
I guess if they made it a 1000m water resist and 50 meter fall shock proof, it might give some (me at least) the feeling of owning a special overkill version of an already overkill watch.
