    Off Topic post Does anyone else not like the new style Month/Date separator on the GW-5000.?

    I am still having a hard time not buying this watch.... I only have one 'G'
    a GW-M5600 and I really like it but the steel case is hard to resist.

    The whole style of the watch is very nice but I'm not a big fan of the new
    month/date separator and would much prefer the traditional dash style one.
    Oh and I also prefer the ALM SIG SNZ positions on the GW-M for the record.

    However this is by no means a deal breaker for me, I just prefered the old
    one thats all. I did however come accross this picture of a GW 5000 with
    the old style separator and I wondered if anyone had any ideas about it.

    My guess would be a pre production model with the old module in it but I
    am waiting to be corrected.

    Cheers,
    Rico.

    Well, I like it. I like have the date and day on at the same time.

    I believe it's simply a matter of personal preference. I like the new one, it's more contemporary.

    Not quite what I meant..... I love the Day and date displayed at the same
    time too, I was refering to the the little separator between the Month and
    the Date display inside the little box on the top right.

    Watch above has dash between month and day

    Watch below has an elongated dot at the bottom edge of the month and day

    I'd never noticed that. I prefer the old style.
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    At first I didn't like it since I'm so used to seeing a dash between the month and day, but after wearing my GW-5000B a while I totally agree with Mr. Archer.

    I never noticed the difference until reading this post. I prefer the old dash-style, but since I never noticed it, it won't make a large difference to me.
