Is Casio GA2100 metal overpriced?

Everyone loves the GA 2100. It's a perfect watch for around 80$ in the non-bluethoot versions. Casio has recently launched a metal version of it, which costs 500$ the least.

I find that massively overpriced taking in account basic ones can be found from 80 to 120$. It seems that I'm the only one who thinks that, as everyone loves it on the internet. I think it's gorgeous to, but not for that price.

What do you think?

You are missing some important differences. The metal g-Shock you posted in the pic is stainless steel case and dial only. It is double the price of the GA-2100, so can be had for around $180. That’s the one I have. 
 

The $500 version has additional features…tough solar and Bluetooth  These are inline with the higher priced plastic Casioak, adding about $70 to the price. So, what about the other $250 you’re paying?  That’s for an all metal bracelet.

The metal case is a nice upgrade. The one shown, the GM2100-1A, can be had all day for about $150 USD. There is no need to spend more for a metal bracelet. At about $150 it is one of the coolest, albeit largely illegible, watches one can buy IMO.

Yes, It is overpriced.  What watch isn't?
