    5600 advice

    Hi-

    My mudman is slowly falling apart, and I thought that I might get a 5600. I've tried to research it, but am overwhelmed with all of the different models. Here's what I'm looking for:

    black
    reverse display (not military)
    less than $100
    solar/atomic nice, but not required
    thinner nice, but not required (6.5 inch wrists)
    the more features the better...

    Any advice?

    thanks!

    Fred

    Get the DW5600E-1V. It's an excellent watch and just $42 on Amazon.com.

    I would recommend either the positive or negative GW-M-5600. They're both solar atomic and feel slightly smaller than the standard DW-5600E. The negative display comes on a composite bracelet which many on the forum love but which I didn't take to.

    Not sure of US pricing but they are great watches.

    Looks great, and may be the best solution, but not a reverse display. What if I really want a reverse display?

    Oops!, another post slipped in before me. Is there a code that indicates the reverse display model?

    What? No military version? That's cool, but check out this one. It's got the combination bracelet on it. And YES, to everyone else who is curious about what the bracelet will fit.....it will be a perfect fit on the military version of the 5600. Actually, I just put it up for sale on Ebay. I ended up buying the GWM5600BC and told the wife I would get rid of this one. It looks to be new as my GW-002KA is my daily wear to work G-Shock. Both 5600's look great to me, but I just prefer the solar watches.
