Retail price for the consumer not the Armed forces is around $460 ,which for me is a bit pricey for a Casio,i even so lately a
metal bracelet Casio that is new at retail of $2500 ........

I don't get it. Seems like an unnecessary expensive model compared to other G Shocks that are every bit as tough.

When something is issued, it becomes automatically expensive since the government is paying for it. Image

What is casio of choice for normal watch enthusiasts?
"Ah, I'd love to wear a rainbow every day,
And tell the world that everything's OK,
But I'll try to carry off a little darkness on my back,
'Till things are brighter, I'm the Man In Black."

Well i guess this is a retail version "hommage" of the military version ,still i find Casio prices to the extreme these days ,go check out their webstore ,some models sell for 2500 euros!!
I Have a Casio from 1980 that my Father purchased as gift back then,still have it though somewere,only the hard plastic strap (no rubber back then) is damaged ,i renumber paying a very little amount for new even back then.
So i don't understand Casio policy ,you can even buy a totally professional military Grade Sundo or Garmin for much much less.

I still have quite a few G Shocks. The first to get imo is the DW-5600. Extremely shock resistant, durable, 200m wr, and easy to find brand new for $50 or less.
