    Just received my spare strap, bezel and screws today from Keith at Tiktox. Long live the GW-5000 :D

    I don't have much to add to this but I will say that I often grab the wrong watch when my GW-5000 and GW-5600 are side by side in my watch box and I'm not paying close attention.

    How's the best way to store spare resin straps and bezels. Leave them in their wrapper or get em out in some air. Is there any chance of resin rot when not in use....and I've read of lube for the resin to keep them tip top. What do you rub on yours?

    Resin-rot won't visit you for a long time, but best to keep it in a bag with those little bags, silica gel ''Do not eat'' and in a drawer in a dark place.

    Fer, question for you

    You have (had?) 5600c, how does it wear compared to the GW-5000 (not counting the softer strap)? Do you wear both on same hole, is there any bigger diffrences between the two?

    Well they both seemed to wear almost the same except for the resin but I preferred the gw-5000 because the straps and spring bars were not as wide as the 5600c, the EL, and the screen on the 5600C at certain angles looks distorted which I didn't like. I did like that the crystal on the 5600c was less crowded and that the backplate did not have that suctioning effect when I sweat or am wet (this isn't that big of a deal but a tiny annoyance), but ultimately I felt the resin on the GW-5000 was much more comfortable.
