Any idea when will it launch in USA?
This post will be updated when we find out.
If you look around they are at some authorized dealers …
Limited edition to how many pieces b100tfb-1aer
how many are being released…quantities/numbers? Can’t seem to find any way of finding out.
Do we think these are highly collectable and likely to increase in value of will people just see this as yet another 5th year milestone??
I don’t think they publicized the production quantity for this series. Yes anniversary watches will increase in value. However it might not be so easy to sell these due to the high prices.
Yes I agree with you. I find that the Frogman and some fully digital G Shocks are overpriced. Quartz may fail one day. Can you fond another similar module to replace a faulty one? What about the cost of repair? Authenticity issues will arise then.
