    That's a GW-5600J. Very similar, but diffrent animal, not screwback

    It would fool 99 % of normal people, but g-shockaholics know the diffrence

    Nope, sorry, not a GW-5000. Not even close.
    Notice the lack of simultaneous day & date? That's the dead giveaway.

    And not a screwback...flip it over and check....the back has the model number.

    Yup. That's a GW-5600J-1. A great watch, I have one, but not a GW-5000.

    Au contraire, I would say it's the closest you can get to GW-5000 without spending the money on GW-5000.

    Nope, I disagree....the GW-M5610 is the closest, again because the J has no simultaneous day & date, making the J a different animal for a different market. The J also has a different shape and different size numeral font. The J is not Multiband 6. The J bezel will not fit a 5000, the 5610 bezel will fit a 5000.

    It's true, 5610 has same module, but I ment more the aesthetic, the placement of triple G logo, the grey surrounding the solar panels...

    5610 is basically same watch as 5000, but by glancing at gw-5000 and gw-5600j together, it would be difficult to tell them apart.

    Disagree. And agree to disagree.

    This forum is a great place to debate the fine points of these Gs.
    Thanks to our input, folks get to see the differences and make their own choices.

    True, just sharing opinions, that's why we are here, even if we don't agree

    To me a gw-5600j dw-5600e and a gw-5000 are like 90% the same. The 10% is reason enough to buy the GW-5000 and not the others.
