    Question Is this a BC combi bracelet ?

    On tiktox.com, I stumbled over this interesting offer, a GW-M5600-1E/BC, fitted with the BC combi bracelet:

    I assume that they mean they had the GWM5600, and they fitted it with the BC bracelet, as the standard ones come on the resin straps.

    By the way, I believe the pictures you included are of the GW-5000.

    My understanding is that you're correct that the bracelet is the one in the photos - tikox haven't done themselves any favours by being too lazy to take a good picture of the watch. However, there is a separate picture of the bracelet on its own (extremely well hidden) page:

    I've just ordered one myself, so I can let you know for sure tomorrow.

    Yes that is the 'combi' or composite bracelet.

    It is a super comfortable bracelet and is very popular on the Forum.




    However, I think the GW-M5600BC-1ER is the better offer as it is cheaper for one and comes with a free spare resin bezel and also a free resin strap for swapping with the bracelet.

    I have one and it looks great.

    ..However, it's universally(?) agreed that the reverse displays are harder to read. Not awful, just less good. From what I've seen I'd use one as a casual wear watch but not, say, a real sports timer.

    Thanks all

    Yea, I'm not tempted by the reversed display on the GW-M5600BC-1ER - the watch looks good otherwise.

    I'm far more tempted by the GW-M5600-1ER, which also comes with an extra spare resin strap - though I'm a bit in doubt about the red line... So I lean towards ordering this + GW-M5600BC case...
