This Watch Is More Expensive Than Green Water Ghost!

In 1981, the TOUGH project team under Casio was established. At that time, ‘3 10’ development goals were established, namely: 10 meters of anti-drop impact, 10 BAR water resistance, and 10 years of battery life. The project team took two years and after more than 200 trials. Finally, in 1983, a new watch G-Shock that subverted the common sense of the watch industry was launched. It can be dropped from the top of a tall building without damage. When it first launched, G-Shock was only popular in a few markets, such as the United States, due to its unique appearance. As fashion trends changed, this product began to be sold worldwide, and G-Shock also became Casio’s iconic watch. In 2010, G-Shock’s cumulative worldwide shipments exceeded 50 million. By August 2017, G-Shock had a stunning sales figure of 100 million pieces. 2018 is the 35th anniversary of the Casio G-Shock series. To commemorate it, the brand launched a series of commemorative editions. The most popular of these are the GMW-B5000D-1, which is called the ‘small silver nugget’, and the GMW-B5000TFG-9, which is called the ‘small gold nugget’ (and the inverted version in the picture). In addition to solar power, six rounds of radio waves, and Bluetooth, its unique feature is that the case material has been replaced by the original rubber and plastic to all metal. If you do n’t know it, you will be shocked. After the sharp lines and exposed screws of G-Shock are displayed through the metal material, the texture of the watch has been greatly improved. In particular, the contrast between surface brushing and mirror polishing has instantly turned it into a ‘face killer’. The official price of the ‘small silver nugget’ GMW-B5000D-1 is 3690 yuan, and the ‘small silver nugget’ GMW-B5000TFG-9 is 4290 yuan. Although the official does not explicitly limit the specific amount of production, in the secondary market, supply is less than demand, forming a premium. ‘Small silver bars’ are now almost 10% above the public price and require 4,000 yuan. The ‘small nugget’ GMW-B5000TFG-9 is the 35th anniversary limited edition and also comes with special packaging, so the price has skyrocketed. In May 2018, one month after the release, the price increased to 8,000 yuan, and now it needs nearly 10,000 yuan to get it. The premium is more than the Rolex Green Water Ghost! For the majority of ordinary watch friends, it may be a bit difficult to buy a “small nugget” GMW-B5000TFG-9 at a double price of 10,000 yuan. However, it is quite good to spend 4,000 yuan to buy the ‘small silver nugget’ GMW-B5000D-1, or the inverted version of the ‘small gold nugget’ GMW-B5000GD-9A. Pro test, the real thing is handsome! —END —
