I like that camo one way more than I would've expected, but that is a lot of money for G Shock.

For a watch like the G-shock, I think plastic is a better case material. Lightweight, durable, cheaper, and the thing is already fugly so it's not like it changes the aesthetic. YMMV, $0.02, etc
Think it, be it.

They make a similar blue ti Gshock that’ve drooled over for almost a year now. Really well done.

Such a great watch.  Glad you are putting it through its paces.

Not sure about:

The Rolex Daytona, GMT Master, Sky Dweller, and possibly the Submariner. I don't know about the Yacht Master.

The Patek Philippe Nautilus and also the Aquanaut.

I don't know about the Royal Oak, but I think that some models are scarce.

As for AP, in Tortola & St Thomas we saw quite a few of the more complicated ROs but only one “base” model. The dealers were apparently supposed to limit one to a person but I imagine money talks.
