    Buckle question for a GW-5000 strap.

    So I just got a GW-M5610BC and put a GW-5000 strap on it. My question is...can I use the buckle from a DW5600MS? I think it would look awesome and more stealthy. Thanks in advance!

    I don't think it will fit

    the strap from 5600MS is wider at the end, and the buckle is wider

    Hmmm I wish everything for the GW-5000B wasn't so impossible to get. Any other suggestions? Anyone?

    You can get a GW-5000B strap from pacparts or casio USA, later being cheapest, it will just cost a lot because the buckle is dlc coated.

    Perhaps not when compared to Frogman resin. Considering I've been buying complete resin sets for the regular GW5000 for half that, it's pretty dang expensive. So, $25 for some DLC that will scratch off over time.

    Well the regular GW-5000 resin is less than 20 from pacparts, Casio USA should sell the GW-5000b for considerably less but I'm still waiting to hear back. I also feel that the GW-5000 resin is more comfortable than the frogman resin.

    In my experience casio is not much cheaper and sometimes even more expensive than pacparts. But it doesn't hurt to check.
