Is there a method that doesn't involve using pliers? I want to keep it relatively intact.
    If they are the authenthic ones, I just snap off one side using my fingers the key is to get it over the bumper covered by resin on the side. Or stick something under the bullbar and snap it off, but this can scratch the bullbars, I've only used pliers on the after market ones.

    Amen to that, about the GW5600J being the closest looking to an actual GW-5000 without spending the big $$$$$$ I have both and at first glance they look identical.

    It's weird but actually PREFER the GW5600J matte finish caseback to any type of caserback (regular SS, DLC coated GW5000 etc) Have they ever offered it on other G's? Seems it's the only one I am aware of in my vast G collection. Figures the first G I owned has the best caseback, still looks pristine today and never shows fingerprints or scratches.

    I also have a GW-5600J and like it's looks.

    But I feel like a man possessed .

    I keep looking at all the pictures on Google and reading posts about the GW-5000. Like a shark circling it's prey, I'm trying to figure out the best way to attack it and make it mine.

    Of course it goes without saying I must be able to explain (with a straight face) to my wife why I need to buy it when, to her, it looks just like the $45 DW-5600E. And I already have 30 watches sitting by my desk at home.


    Good luck to me.

    Buy a DW-5600E. And buy a GW-5000 that you ship to your workplace or a friend. Hide the DW-5600E, show the GW-5000 to your wife and if she complains show the DW-5600E receipt.

    Bingo.

    Sell some of the 30 watch collection to pay for it. Money in. Money out. No loss = happy wife who is reasonable enough to support a decent not harmful hobby.

    Got it 10 days ago. Been loving it now that I got the bracelet to fit. Only thing so far I don't really like is the buttons.

    I was thinking that the other day. But it seems difficult to choose. I like them for different reasons even though I may not wear them all the time. My examples are the G-7800, G5600KG-3, G7900 in blue, green and red, etc., etc.

    I will have to just work at creating a "Do I really need/want these anymore list". Then post them on the sales forum for a good price to move them quick. This way there will be no time to think, just react and get them out the door.

    What I really would like is to find a forum member who is nearby that has one. This way maybe I could try the GW-5000 on and see (to me) if it is really worth it or not (insert sarcastic laughter here).

    That may end up being a bad idea. lol
