That's because the retail price of this watch is high. I believe the retail price here was around €250.-. The retail price in the US was $220.- in the US 7 months ago, but since about a year it's more usual that the shop prices are higher, to much higher than the retail prices in the US, due to the high demands of ltd ed. I guess. As it is still available, I also think the release was not a small batch either. It must be a very special watch. The owner of this forum bought one at the Ace x Acht G-Shock Pop-Store party in November (it was one of the last in The Netherlands).Thanks.
it seems that I cannot find one for lower than 300 though which seems a bit high
