    9CV born again!

    Few months ago I found on ebay Spain a gold 5600C 2nd model, reference number DW 5600C-9CV, that I admired for a long time.

    I already had the previous model as well as the current gold 5600E, which seems like an hybrid between the 9V and the 9CV, so once received I ordered a Brazilian set from Marta hoping to wear it again.

    Today the parcel from Brazil has arrived:

    and I extracted from the drawer the watch as I had received on March:

    The swap has been fast, even if the buckle was annoying...I should have also replace the lugs as not in great conditions...however....

    Complete watch.

    Next to the GW 5000 (which appears bigger because the strap is less flexible so close to the phone)...actually I found the Brazilian rubber is quite similar in colour to the material used on new G shocks, they are both dull dark grey.

    ...and on the wrist!

    I find the 9CV along with its blue and green siblings the most handsome of all 5600s with their triple layered frame and colored dial. After one week with the GW5000 I reappreciate again the smaller size of the vintage 5X00s , the shorter height of the case and the more movable lugs (actually on the 5000 what impairs the movement of the strap is not the material quality but the redesign of the case with the two additional mm that don't allow the strap to uncoil completely).

    I should remove the scratches from the glass but unfortunately I don't have the proper tools, when I am going on holiday I will try to clean it up, but already right now the watch is ready to be worn.

    Nice! I had one a while ago, and also bought bezel & strap from Marta. The gold buckle supplied was absolutely horrible! It was just a silver buckle plated in gold and it just started flaking off straight away!

    Hopefully yours is better?

    I'm not using it because I savaged the original one, but it looks nice.

    I also noticed the strap is narrower than the case, while the colour is the same I don't like the step I see...I didn't get the o-ring.

    I wonder if I need to source a Casio strap but I'm afraid that if old it might already be turning gloss black, I think it's called "vitrification", at least for tyres.

    Now the finish and colour is really the same as the GW5000:

    This is my other gold 5600 with Brazilian rubber, am I drunk or there is no step between strap and case?

    The original straps are still available, (at least in the UK they are), I just ordered one from watchbattery.co.uk

    They have the gilt buckle, but that can obviously be swapped.

    I can see the strap is a bit narrower than the bezel, unusual.
