My new GW-5000-1JF (born on 22nd March 2013) which I've had a week now and ordered from Seiya san. As you can see with its new best friend my trusty G-5600J (DOB 17th January 2006) which has been my favourite square in that time. Just look at the digit size (!) and the fact it's got some great features which I think some folks do miss on the newer versions - local time in all modes except stopwatch, 100hr timer etc. Anyway the GW-5000 is now also a new favourite - the look (a new stealth bezel and DLC buckle have gone on in the last week), weight and feel is spot on. With that case it's proper old school and it does really well on the feature count.
If I was going to be picky (these weren't deal breakers) I would have loved 3 second Auto EL, may be a local / world time toggle on the timekeeping screen and alarm day/date reminders - that would be my personal 5000/56xx utopia but as I say not enough to stop me from getting the GW at all.
It's a great watch that will probably outlast me!
I bought mine from e-Bloom. Great price, great communication.
From my experience, stores with "We welcome foreign buyers" sign have staff who are able to communicate in English. BTW, I once ordered G-Shock parts from a store without that sign without a problem, of course, the only store carrying those parts. Google translation helped. ^_^

An observation of my new GW-5000 is that the text on the watch glass sit quite high above the lcd and when viewed in sunlight it creates quite a distracting shadow on the date/time. Is this normal? My GW-M5610 has no shadows cast on the lcd as the glass sits almost flush to the lcd. I can do a picture of my observation but not right now as im enjoying...ish (shoulda put The G on really) my SKX007 today.
ps. not a rant of dissatisfaction. Just checking in with you experts....
