    Re: GW 5000 1JF owners report here

    Got mine in the mail last night. This watch is totally worth it. I find it pretty easy to justify as I think DW5600 and GWM5610 represent great value in watches and are probably a little underpriced. The steel case gives it a touch of heft that makes it feel more substantial both in the hand and on the wrist.

    The legibility is perfect and I love the bezel dimensions. I find the G5600 too square and the GW5600 to look a little off balance. The GW5000 is a perfect upgrade to the DW.

    I agree. I've compared my DW-5600e and GW-5000, and while the DW-5600e is perhaps one of the best digitals out there -- the quintessential G-shock -- the GW-5000 is a worthy upgrade. Its digits are slighter thicker, its display is more legible at extreme angles, and its timers are easier to adjust. Aesthetically, the monochrome scheme and symmetrical text placement give the watch balance.

Anyone else sold one then to repurchase another. Thing is I really like it, it just gets no wrist time. What I ought to do is wear it a week or so and see if it becomes attached to my wrist. Daft thing is I always put my gwm-5610 on instead.

    What shall I do?
    I totally regret selling my GW-5000 that I put DLC buttons and black screws on. What I do when I am in your position is wear it a couple of days and if I still don't really wear it, I sell it.

    I regret not buying a set of those buttons and screws before they were discontinued

    Ok I've decided not to sell. I just can't bear to let it go, it's not like I need the money. It's been on my wrist all day while doing my Sunday jobs and it's got to be a keeper. I know I'd regret it letting it go. It's definitely more sophticated than the gw-m5610 which has already become my beater watch. Thanks you guys for the wise words

    My square collection has improved vastly this year. When I think of whittling down my squares I put the GW-5000 on for a day. "No, this is a keeper". :cool:

    Does anyone know if the bezel screws are the same as the ones in the gw-m5610?

    Don't understand why this watch is priced this much when it's not a vintage nor is it discontinued. The vintage cost around $30 back then. Am I missing something?
