  1. GW-B5600-1ER https://www.casio-europe.com/euro/products/watches/g-shock/gw-b5600bc-1er/
  2. I had a spring-drive and sold it because I had an issue with the power-reserve. It wasn't to do with the duration but how it was generated. I basically do bugger all nowadays except walk for an hour each day. My walking action was not effective at increasing the power-reserve. It seems it need wrist rotation, and walking and my sedentary lifestyle was not enough. I even sent it back to Japan to get it checked and they confirmed all was fine, it was me who was the problem! Just to add, I don't have an issue wearing autos, they seem fully powered after my speed walk.
  3. Could find an individual on https://www.airtasker.com/ or https://www.parcl.com/. Not used either but I've heard good things. Somebody on pacl would be perfect but not sure how you would get them to go and pick-up.
  4. GW-B5600 digital is, GR-B100 ana/digi isn't, but no radio time signal in Australia so needs to be bluetooth. Radio time signal got ditched years ago, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Radio_VNG.
  5. I'm an accuracy nut so syncing time via bluetooth is cool to me. Also, the app allows you to set world time cities, alarms, etc. which is great for somebody who is now at the age of having to write things down to remember them.
  6. No. Currently flicking between the Premier League matches thinking about it. Back in November I bought a used one off Rakuten Japan for 10% more. It really is a good deal. I keep telling myself https://www.tictacarea.com/en/casio-g-shock-watches/casio-gw-b5600-2er-watch-casio-g-shock-gw-b5600-2er will do and I don't need another bluetooth.
  7. These are excellent prices for this bluetooth, https://www.manontime.com/viewtopic.php?p=15531#p15531. Second time it's on flash. I used to have one and sold it because it was too thick but I'm so tempted because of the functionality. Must resist!!!
  8. I can't say for sure as I don't use one but should be able to use a Nato adapter from what I have read. It's only the blue one that has the usual g-shock resin strap, the others have a combi-bracelet if you are looking for something different.
  9. https://www.tictacarea.com/search?controller=search&orderby=position&orderway=desc&search_query=gw-b5600&submit_search=SearchI have the blue one. Syncs using bluetooth.
  10. Very true. Hit the internet and discover what you like. quartz/auto, Swiss/Japanese/??? brand, complication, etc. So much to consider that is very personal to you. $4000 is a lot of money so you want to get it right. For somebody new to watches I recommend at least 3 months of research before buying. The longer the time spent researching the less the probability you will want to immediately flip it.
  11. https://www.watchrecon.com/ Check out used prices. Take your time and enjoy the chase.
  12. Not a lot any of us can say other than to comment on the price, unless we have shopped with them. I haven't but their reviews look OK, https://au.trustpilot.com/review/hughrice.co.uk. Price looks OK for UK/EU grey market. I would be tempted to request a quote from Tamarah at https://www.acejewelers.com/en/tag-heuer-aquaracer-calibre-5-automatic-way201c-fc6395. See how a new one comes in. Ask her how close she can get. You never know. Ace is an AD. They won't match but may get close enough for you trade some discount for AD warranty. If I were spending a lot of money I would ask my new friends for their advice to check my Googling expertise is first-rate, https://www.manontime.com/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=45.
  13. https://www.manontime.com/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=115 I find a lot of UK guys like to buy from UK because they don't want to be pinged with the import VAT. We have 10% GST in Aus and I would only buy from one Aus supplier because they are the only one with global market pricing, https://www.starbuy.com.au/. The rest I have bought from US, EU, Japan and China.
  14. https://www.rakuten.com/globalrakuten.com?ebtoken=eyJhbGciOi... Ebates has 26% cashback on Rakuten Global. This is very rare and will last a day or so!!! Time if of the essence!!! https://global.rakuten.com/en/search/?tl=0&k=omega 2531&l-id=keyword_suggest If you want to go for it start by registering at ebates and rakuten global. Rakuten owns ebates so you are safe, provided you use credit card/Paypal. The cashback is paid into your Paypal account every quarter. I've just had one for USD30. Save the url for the watch in favourites. I use Chrome, get the ebates extension, https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/ebates-rakuten-get.... Turn off your adblocker. Start chrome with the adblocker off and the extension enabled, go to watch page. Extension will pop-up and say it is tracking the purchase. Take screenshot of the popup on the watch page just in case. Buy the watch!!!!! Say you want to pay using credit card/paypal. There's actually a coupon for JPY3200 available, see top of page on right in green. If there's still one available tick it to get the coupon. Here's where Rakuten is different: when you buy you are inviting the supplier to make you an offer. the seller will send you an email detailing the price and postage and giving you a credit card/Paypal link. Normally people advise waiting to see whether your offer to buy has tracked in your Ebates account and only then do they purchase. However, you don't have the luxury of waiting because the 26% could be pulled anytime, that's why I said take a screenshot of the popup on the watch page. Ebates customer service is pretty good, and as you are a new customer they won't want to pee you off when you present the evidence of emails and screenshot.
  15. You have to buy one with at least 12 slots to give him a logical reason to keep buying watches. 20 would be better.
