    Thanks, watch_geek2014, for the useful chart. Fascinating, really. So... there's this case style called the 6900...! heh!

    You're welcome. If you count all the color / style variations within models, the 6900 probably got a ton of them. But if you count the actual model variations with differences in modules and significant differences in case designs, I doubt the 6900 can match the variations of the 5600. Not to even mention related models that didn't use the same model number, the 5600 will no doubt beat the 6900 on that.

    I am doing this because the 5000 series was what started the whole G-shock thing. It's the origin! The 5600 is also the longest running G-shock series. It's also the most compact G-shock design for the longest time, until it's slightly beaten by the G056, but that didn't last long. There are lots of enthusiasm for this series, just this forum alone, there are countless threads, photos, reviews and even modding instructions. But seem to lack a table listing them all and their features. Now there is!

    Tell you the truth, neither the 5600 or 6900 are something I like at first sight. Choosing a watch is actually a very personal thing, and sometimes it's kind of like love at first sight. My first love for G's was the GW330A, and I found myself coming back time after time to ones related to that series. But I do admire the humble origin of the 5600, as well as its no non-sense, nothing fancy and just works design philosophy. If I will ever buy a 5600 in the future, it will be the cheapest DW5600E. Back to the basic square, and that's what it's designed for and intended to be.

    I just threw a chart together, perhaps to put in another thread -- but there appear to be only NINE versions with the "6900" suffix.

    Just made another round of updates to the tables. Now including 5600 related Mini and Baby G models, added Table 1C for that purpose. Also added a few more 5500 models in Table 1B.

    Just a bit to add. The 691/901 module calendar ends 2029. Module 240 has no year to set with, only month, day (0-31), day of the week (m.t.w.th.f.s.s).

    Got it, just included your info into the module table. It's pretty hard to find these details for he vintage models, the manuals back then were minimal.

    What do mean by switch covers? You mean button covers? Like the 5500 series?

    After research a bit more, the correct watch term for this is Annual Calendar. This type of watch calendar assumes 28 days for February, so required manual adjustment during a leap year when there are 29 days for February. That's one manual correction for every 4 years, not bad at all. Better than plain analog watches, where you need adjustment to the date number about every other month. Many older Casio watches were using this type of calendar, including AWM320 which they still sell today.


    For buddyrohr's question on stealth 5600, I really don't know, man. You can probably get better answers in one of those threads asking about stealth / all black models, there are a few recently.
