That's my Diesel. A beautiful time-piece. Made the mistake of wearing it on a ride and the strap glue has given way.

Not sure if Trintec offers international shipping. You basically have three options:

1. If the official website offers shipping to India, you can opt for that. Please factor in customs duties when the watch enters India.

2. If there are third party retailers who will ship to India, you can check for them. Make sure you research the bona fides of such seller, because as they say, you buy the seller more than you buy the watch. Chack for warranty terms when buying from any third party retailers. Again, customs duty needs to be factored in.

3. Get it shipped to a friend or relative in the USA and get him to bring it down. This is a tried and tested method which I have used several times with good results. Might take more time, but the wait wlil surely be worth it.

Thanks for the sound advice. Option number 3 is the best one. Will try it out. Thanks

Thanks.
Exactly the same position I am in. For my eco drive I have been quoted around 1800 at Zimson's Chennai and a time line of 2-3 weeks. For my Seiko, they said even to know the estimate it will take 2-3 weeks, post which the cost and the delivery timeline will be known. Hope this helps

Got a good deal on Casio G671 during the recent sale on Amazon. This is the Tough Solar version of the classic square G-Shock i.e the DW 5600. Extremely comfortable to wear, totally robust, automatic backlight, solar battery etc. combined with the timeless classic look made it a really good candidate for an impulse buy

What a coincidence. I bought same watch on Amazon sale as well. It's awesome with retro looks, G-shock and perfect for when I go on some trip or weekend casual. And even mine was an impulse buy.

Congrats. Have been using this as a true beater for the past two years: gym, swimming, walking , running etc. It's a true legend that started off the G Shock fable. Need to change the battery now at just over two years. One of the best buys around, no two ways about it.

The one bought by Vidyut does not look to be the solar version. It's the same one that I have which is the basic one with battery.

Solar G Shocks are a fair bit more expensive. And should last you a much much longer time in terms of battery life.

Mine is the solar version! Same as Rigod. You can see the third line "tough solar".

The Amazon price dropped to 3495 as I had kept in my buying list and it told me prices dropped and I picked up one.

I'd read somewhere about a version of the DW 5600 which has a metallic case. Is this the same one?

The steel case is much more expensive, the one we got is plastic.

This is the steel one: https://www.amazon.com/Casio-G-Shock...0&sr=8-1-fkmr0

https://gearpatrol.com/2019/07/28/ca...0-steel-bezel/

This is the one from Amazon India RiGod and myself got: https://www.amazon.in/Casio-G-Shock-...2WZ1KDXZSANGH2
