    I agree. That is the module's worst omission. Even if the time only showed for the first hour of stopwatch mode, I'd be happy.

    I could definitely use a louder alarm, or a vibration alarm. Just something remotely practical.

    LED backlight would be sweet.

    But honestly, I'm pretty happy as is. Just minor quibbles.

    I'd love to see Casio come out with different bezel shapes, that still fit the existing case. Maybe one that's chunkier with more resin to protect the crystal. Beast mode!!!

    Maybe new and improved nylon bull bars that don't have paint chipping issues.

    Better looking strap adapters would be cool.

    I'd even dig new resin straps that looked more like the old DW-5600C straps.

    GW 5000 1JF owners report here

    Remembering some fond memories of my first DW-5000 during primary school, I started to look at the squares recently. Just got this GW-5000-1JF from a trip to Tokyo together with a GW-M5600-1JF. There are 3 things that I must highlight on the GW-5000,

    1) you must own this to understand why this is called the G-rail
    2) if you're trying to justify the price, you're missing the point
    3) it's not psychological, you're getting the value of what you've paid for

    Reaching home, I put it on for ten minutes and promptly contacted a Japanese friend whom will be visiting. A stealthy brother is on its way..... 😁

    I ordered one yesterday and it shipped today from japan on a container boat. It says the delivery will be April 1. Ha.

    I think it will be sooner.

    Hi guys, I see the GW-5000 listed as USD 328 on Seiya and USD 311 on Chino (Yes I'm also aware that it is sold out). Then I see Rakuten Global listing it as approximately USD 273 (watch-shop). Is this legit? I have never purchased from watch-shop but could be tempted to!
