    Casio Gshock g5600

    Hi, I'm interested in buying the g5600. I wanna buy a Zulu adapter to this model, but I'm not sure if this one will fit because it's for the dw5600: http://m.ebay.com/itm/252269233101

    MOST 5600 models use interchangeable straps, which means that they can all use the same strap adapter:

    ...which means that EITHER "G5600" version can use those adapters.

    Thanks. Do you think g5600 is a good choice or there are better in 5600's series?

    How about one of the atomic/solar GW-M5610 versions?

    They look similar. What is the difference?

    G-5600 isn't atomic, for one thing. I haven't checked the manuals for the two modules, but it is probably worth doing.

    I like the GW-M5610R the best -- the one with the orange lettering and the orange-tinted display.

    And what's the difference between GW-M5610R and GW-M5610?

    In what part of the world do you live? If you're in the US or Europe, or near China or Japan, many people like having the "atomic" feature. The watch synchronizes itself with the nearest atomic clock's radio transmitter so it's always accurate, and the watch will automatically adjust for Daylight Saving Time. The only time the watch needs any sort of adjustment is if you travel and change time zones.

    If you live in Australia, India, or some of the other areas without atomic clock radio coverage, that feature isn't of much use on its own. There are smartphone apps that mimic the radio signals, but that takes away slightly from the "set it and forget it" convenience.

    Do you really want and need a solar-powered G-Shock? If you don't spend much time outdoors, or if you live near the Arctic Circle, you may become one of the members here who finds "solar" itself an inconvenience if you have to keep your watch near a window when it's not being worn, or may find a basic battery-powered version more convenient. If you DO spend time outdoors and don't have many other watches, though, a solar watch will probably always stay on "high" charge and you'll wonder what all the fuss is about.

    Orange lettering and an orange-tinted LCD.

    Casio often makes several different versions of a given watch, with different suffixes in the model number. GENERALLY SPEAKING, if the first part of the model number is the same (as in the case with all GW-M5610 versions) the electronic module inside is the same, which means that the features and functions will be identical, and the only differences are aesthetic. [There ARE two different modules between the G5600 and the G5600E, but unless you're buying a used watch you'll probably never see the earlier version.]

    Take a look at the "5000" section and the "G-Lide" section of this thread: https://forums.watchuseek.com/f43/sta...ck-850524.html

    There are many different 5600 "square" versions out there, but only YOU can decide which features you want. Basic battery power, solar, solar/atomic, tide graphs, moon phase, and even Bluetooth enabled models that can link to your phone.

    Once you figure out what features you're most interested in, then you can start deciding on color combinations and aftermarket strap adapters.

    Thanks for the information.
    I live in Israel. On one hand we got much sunny days here, on the other hand, I don't spend much time outdoors ^^
    I guess we are radio covered, but there are only about 30 time zones (?) and I'm really not sure my country appears there, maybe a region nearby like greece.
    Aren't there a new generation of round case 5000's, like the vintage dw5700c?
