    Another GW-M5600 mod. "When comfort is everything"

    Just thought i should share this. Classic mod with gw-m5600 module fitted to a gw-m5600bc case, but i added a little twist by installing the super comfy strap from gw-5000

    If it is comfort you seek, i think this is your best bet, i can barely feel that there is watch on wrist

    I like it very clean and stealth looking.

    An extremely good substitute for the vaunted GW-5000. Now the only downside is you have to purchase a GW-M5600 at 90-100 and a GW-M5600BC at 200 and a GW-5000 strap at 12. For 312.00 I'd rather have a GW-5000 with DLC screw back solid SS case and more symmetry to the face. On the other hand if you can find all the parts by themselves cheap or trade then you got something. Well on second thought I suppose you would be selling the GW-M5600BC with bracelet and red lined standard case so maybe you might get 125 for that so now you are down to 187.00 so yeah never mind you would still get away with a nice model for under 200!

    We sometimes take the long road to get where we want.
    I've done that a few times.

    It looks great, enjoy your comfy creation.

    I personally loved the comfy composite bracelet on the GWM5600bc.

    Subtle mod that only the wearer notices.

    When you are creating something as comfy as possible, weight is an issue too.. The DLC case is nice, but heavy and bulky (i know, i had two but flipped them both :D).

    You dont have to buy the whole gw-m5600bc, tiktox sells just the case for £30 ;) I paid total 130€ for this watch, and at least for now im enjoying it more than the gw-5000 that i had :)

    I like the looks of this watch. All you need is right before ur eyes. Nothing is distracting.

    Do they sell the GW-M5600BC bezel separately?
