    Just get a GW-5000 or GW-5000B and call it quits. It's all you'll ever need in a 5600 type watch (at least for a few years)

    Rolex Explorer 214270
    Omega Seamaster 300M ceramic 212.30.41.20.01.003.007.90210.WTF.BBQ.LOL.187.911. 12345
    Omega Seamaster 300M 2254.50.00

    Crazy for wanting another 5600? Most definately!! Squares=
    There's gotta be a reason you keep getting rid of them. The best thing to do is just not get another






    Sellers: Topher1556, JERSTERCA, GGD, Shaefro58, eeek, mvyadam, withthesword, fantasma, manitoujoe, jackhlin, flipe8, 94dakar, & davewg .... :thanks!!

    Definately feel you on this one, I only have 5 left, but reallllyyyyy want the GW-5000 myself for the heavier screwback, Multiband 6 and Tough Solar!

    Experience is what you end up with when you didn't get what you wanted.

    I bought a 5600e just to filll in this craving issue. 5600e has the most basic classic looks, wears great and priced low enough to be pointless to resell, so it will just stay with you for good.

    I will freely admit that I'm crazy....heh!

    I've had four, and the only one with a strap long enough for my 8" wrist is my GW-5600J.

    My question is: how long is the strap on the GW-5000? If it's like my 5600J I want one immediately.

    Anyone know for sure?

    Thanks!

    Hi,
    don't get another one - Kwiatek is right. I never liked it much myself - just too uncomfortable on my wrist (at least the DW-5600E - not the DW-5600C) - I always get red marks on the wrist bone from it. Well on the other hand - just for completeness and to stick it in the watch box right away - never to be taken out again - go for it . But if it's for reasons of 'collecting' you should search the bay for a DW-5600C I think .

    Greetings, Sedi
    Cheers

    Yes, you really do want another one. Buy one and make sure you don't sell it. Just hide it and when you start to miss it, bring it out for a few days.
