    It's surprising to me, just how many GW-5000's you see in the WRUW threads. For a watch that is comparatively old in G-Shock years (many G-Shock models are produced for one or two years, and never seen again), and so expensive in comparison to other models, it is still a very popular G-Shock.

    Actually, it's quite easily explained: Made in Japan and screwback. But I am now a little annoyed by the crippled CDT.
    There's a watch in my pocket and it's hands are broken, the face is blank but the gears are turnin'.

    What do you mean most models are produced one or two years? You mean limited production models, because the GW-5000 is a regular model just not produced in the same numbers like the dw-5600e/dw-6900. It's only like 5 years old and it has the newest module so I don't think it's that old, BUT, I do wish it would get a refresh, maybe a super LED, same or better buttons than the T5030, etc.

    I said "Many", not "Most".

    my bad, but no regular models are produced one or two years, at least not any modern ones. (that I can think of)

    I hope next generation of GW-5000 will be stainless steel caseback, no DLC. DLC is all good, but I hope it will be polished steel, just like original.

    I'm really curious when and how they will update it... can't wait for that day to come.

    I'd be cool with the old style caseback with the circular machine marks. The rougher finish made it less sticky on the wrist. Or even the bead blast of the GW-5600J caseback. Again, not sticky.

    The gw-5000 would be the perfect G if it displayed the current time in the countdown and timer modes. That omission is the only reason I bougth the dw-5030, but I actually prefer the looks of the 5000 (though to be fair I still haven't received the 5030 so I haven't seen it in person yet).
    - Omega DeVille Hour Vision Annual Calendar (ref. 431.30.41.22.06.001); Seamaster Chronograph (ref. 2599.80.00)
    - Seiko Ignition (SBHL001)
    - Citizen PMX56-3002 (JDM Pro-Master DLC)
    - ArmourLite Isobrite T100
    - Traser P6600
    - Casio PRX2000T-7JF; GW-5000-1JF; DW-5600E; PRW-3000-1AER; GW-3500BB; GW-6900-1ER; AWG-100
