    My Green Speed (DW-5600B-3V)

    The DW-5600B-3V aka Green Speed is somewhat rare color variation of the famous DW-5600C. I got mine (last year) in pretty rough condition, it's cheaper though. Some minor scratches were present before but I managed to remove some by hand polishing with cerium oxide. Finding a green original bezel for this watch is harder than finding a black NOS bezel for DW-5600C. So I decided to get a brazillian bezel. It's just happen Marta have some colored bezel, so I ordered the green one. After a month of waiting, it finally arrived yesterday so I began to dress up my green speed. Without further ado, here she is.





    Cerium oxide can still be seen between the glass and the metal casing.



    Opps.. Wrong date!



    Side by side.



    Over the top.



    I decided to put a camouflage band from DW-5600D (Winter Speed).



    The band is not brand new, some wear and tear can be seen but it is still in good condition.



    So here she is.







    The caseback is a regular circleback that can often be seen in DW-5600C.



    Side by side with my favorite watch. (Sorry my GW-5000 is dirty)



    Together with the cousin, DW-5600C-1V (fitted with nato band).



    And the most awaited Wrist Shots.







    Thanks!

    The bezel looks good!

    If I'm allowed to be honest, I'm not a fan of the strap with the bezel, but that's only a personal taste issue.

    I would have put either the original colour green strap on, or a plain black one.

    The original green band was not good anymore. I will try the black one. Thanks.

    Does Marta not do the green strap? Or are only the bezels coloured?

    The original black Casio straps are still available on eBay.

    Marta has no colored strap, she gave black strap. I will use the original Casio band since I still have one in my stock.

    Gotta admit I wasn't the greatest fan of Square Casios on this planet UNTIL!
    Gotta look at my SIL's King G (GWX56) now your Greenspeed.
    I'm a born again square Casio freek!!!

    You and my SIL Mark are the cause of it all.

    Yes I would also go for the green strap, I think if Marta can make the bezel she should be able to cast the strap as well...I was thinking about ordering a blue bezel and strap for my Gold G that looks a lot like the blue Speed.
