    I believe so. Or anyone living in or near NYC, their flagship store in SOHO should have them in stock on the 21st according to a sales rep.

    Thanks so much. $350+~$31 in NYC tax is.....tolerable. Curious how the stock will be. I'll call the SOHO store when I have time. If they have, I can try and pick it up on the 21st during the day.

    Well, I was waiting for shipping to be calculated before mentioning how much it cost me. The grand total for this through zemmarket.jp with 1-week EMS shipping was $411. Pretty good in my opinion, not too much more than from the actual store, and a very seamless transaction.

    Good price for piece of mind. I have no idea how the GShock store purchase will go, but if I don't get it then I can deal.

    I hear ya. I'm kind of an Optimus collector, and then coupled with a love for watches and G-Shocks, this was gonna be a must have.

    I may have to drop this; with the amount of gifts I got for my cousins’ kids and few items arriving now, don’t feel plike spending it on a watch that I’ll probably not wear.

    Not to play devil's advocate, but there's always PayPal credit with zero interest for 6 months :)

    It showed up today. I can't believe it. I just opened it to make sure it's all there, as it's a Christmas present. My transaction with zenmarket went off without a hitch. I highly recommend using it.

    Lol. Not your fault. I’ve been eyeing it since yesterday and all throughout this morning. Ugh! I got sidetracked with work and totally forgot it. I’m hoping a friend can pick one up in soho for me .

    I was debating going to the Soho store at lunch since I work in Midtown east but it's freakin' pouring. I had no idea how popular this would be, unfamiliar with Gshock in general and if people were going to line up. No way I was going to line up in the rain. However since their Instagram account said they were going to sell it at their opening at 12pm, I sincerely thought about it.

    Curious how that went.

    (Not sure if you're in the NYC area so not sure if you know the current weather here)

    Whoa. That was a short window. They must not have had very many. I only saw the preorder live because I got an email alert when predakwon posted because I subscribed to this thread.

    Glad it was only $20 less than what I paid for it. Not too bad of a premium to not be stressed about it and have it by Christmas.

    Just called the store and apparently they have “a lot” in stock. I’ll be visiting fam Sunday so hopefully they’ll still be available then.

    Thank you for this! I was able to score one when I saw your post. 360 for me since no sales tax on my end... Hopefully more go back up on stock then for those that missed out.

    Did you get it over the weekend? Very curious if the US release is any different.
