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.
Just reporting my love with GW 5000. I got it on the 22th of January 2014.
Still in Tokyo time.
Now in Mountain Time Zone.
Shinning beauty :)
Thanks for looking.

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).
