    Bezel band question

    Do any of you folks know if the older DW-5600 bezel and band will fit on a newer G-5600 solar model? Not the atomic version. It looks like it might work but I though I'd ask before considering it.

    Thanks,
    TG

    the old DW5600C (with SS case and screwdown case back) has 18mm lug size

    and the new G5600 tough solar (with plastic case and 4 screws case back) has 16mm lug size

    i never tried to inter-change the bezel and strap though

    I am thinking of the 5600's that do not have the screw down back.

    if that's the case, i would think they are inter-changeable, since they looks like they are of the same dimension.

    but i haven't actually done it before

    so better wait for the feedback from somebody who have actually done it

    No they are not

    I thought that to and ordered one as a back up and when it came i was surprised that it did not work. On the onset both look the same but the G5600(solar) had a more pronounced skirt(part next to strap) and the screw holes dont line up correct and also the DW-5600E bezel is slightly thicker.
    So transfering a bezel from the DW-5600E to the G5600 will not work at all


    On the plus side the straps are the same so you can use a dw5600E strap for G5600

    Hope this helps

    P.S DW-5600E is the 4 screw model that is made from 1996 to now
