    Picture DW-5200 and DW-5600C have arrived

    I've been hit by the vintage bug, these things are solid as a rock! I love how the digits seem to "float" above the display back in these older modules.

    Congrats mholje

    They look great ! Those crystals look blemish free too ? Hard to find in that condition.

    Thanks Kim, the 5200 is flawless and the 5600 has a very faint, small scratch towards the top of the crystal, but can only be seen if the light hits it just right. These two are going to be keepers for me.

    Thanks guys, and thanks to Jess too! Would love to find a 5000 now but I'm sure that will take a while. Funny thing about finding a "grail", once you do, there's another on the horizon.
