    YOU ARE RIGHT...LOL Thanks for the help, that is for the length of back-light on the display. I switched it to the L3 option and it made a huge difference, it is much better and actually gives you time to read the info.

    Well, I posted here already to say I'd ordered the 1A and 4ER but now I'm posting to say the 1A has arrived.

    I've read everything on here regarding GX56 and GXW56 and to be honest, most of the criticism is fair: the digits are hard to read in the negative display as well as being small, the watch is huge, the features are neither ground-breaking or new. But yet still.......I LOVE IT!

    I do have big wrists and, surely, just as small wrists MAY look silly with big watches, my big sausage hands and log-like arms look ridiculous sporting a little watch, so therefore, I applaud its size and while the negative display isn't the most practical I'll live with it happily.

    I GOT ONE!!! I got mine as a gift last week. It turns out that most of the items on our happy hour table were ORANGE too! I knew this was one large but wow!! It wears even chunkier than the Raysman.

    Picture Re: GXW-56 and GX56 Owners Sound Off Here: Let's Get An Official Count

    Im in - hoorah!








    If Im honest I didn't really like the red buttons in pics Ive seen and had my heart set on the Orange version - but this became available for £113 (and possibly £14 Quidco coming back so maybe £99) and I had to do it.

    Its is comfy and in my opinion its the right size - it IS a G-SHOCK! Ive always liked the 5600 but its just not chunky enough and having owned a Suunto Core there never gonna cut it now so the GX-56 is spot on.

    It has presence, its mean, its gonna take a beating and still ask for more! It suits my style and I think Im gonna buy the other 2 colours aswell (hopefully the Gold GXW for sure)
