    DW-5700 with 1545 module. What do you think of it?

    So... I have this weird urge to have a screw back square. But those 5600C's are elusive and pretty expensive for what it is for me and no easy bezel replacement, and GW-5000 is not really in my radar right now (I'll get there eventually, but not in the near future it seems)
    Until recently, i discovered that the 5700 with 1545 module are a screw back AND accepts 5600-E's bezel. So my question is, what do you think of the watch? Module feature? Other thought? What it's lacking that would be a deal breaker for you?
    Thank you

    Do you want the circular look of the DW-5700? If not, I'd go with the DW-5000 reissue from 2001, uses the strap and bezel from DW-5600E and it'll be good as new. I have two, and although basic in feature, it is nice to have a minimalist G in the collection

    No, but the after result with 5600E bezel looks pretty good to me since the watch's face is clean.
    Here's one of the thread i referred on the first post: https://forums.watchuseek.com/showthread.php?t=2205498
    Granted he's using 5725, but I've searched that a regular 5700 with 1545 module also a screw back (and one without bezel usually goes for relatively low price)

    never care much about the module/feature as I only need my Gshock to tell time

    I love those DW5700 M#1545 screwbacks because I can use 5600e bezel on them, The thing is the DW5700 (57xx) was the confusing time of Casio, some 5700's are not screwback, some 5700's come with M#691, which shared the case with the 5600C
    And no-one in the history of WUS/F17 covered the DW57xx well enough to help us - So I had to go through trails and errors to find out myself

    I once wanted to do this mode: 5700 case (screwback)M#1545, and use all of the parts from a regular 5600e including buttons and crystal - but now I have three DW5000's, I am pretty happy (+ 2 other screwbacks 5600c and 5700 + many squares)
    and not searching for it any more

    at the end, I think it's worth waiting and spending more money on a DW5000 instead of doing the aforementioned mod (unless I have plenty of free time)

    Re: DW-5700 with 1545 module. What do you think of it?

    Personally I don't like how 5700 looks with square bezels, the dial has that curved line which doesn't complement the shape of a 5600 bezel at all.
    I also don't particularly like the 5400/5700 circular bezel very much.

    I used 5600C or 5200C is going to cost approximately $50 (give or take), plus another $30-ish for Brazilian band and bezel replacement.
    That's still a bit cheaper than a non-vintage screwback squares like the DW-5000 (module 1454), or any of the anniversary releases.
    Then again, you can get lucky, I saw a brand new DW-5030C-1 sell for under $150 on ebay last week.

    I had a 901 module 5600C for a little while but gifted it, now I use a 240 module 5200 and it's one of my favorite squares. There are a few things it doesn't do like CDT by the seconds and no auto-repeat, no dual time, and the stopwatch repeats every 60min. But it has current time viewable in all modes, single chime on the half hour, 10 minute intervals of stopwatch and CDT. Something about the simplicity and straightforwardness of the watch makes it the most enjoyable for me.

    1545 module. Does that mean it's modern enough to have an EL backlight? That would be a plus for me.

    Anyway, I kind of like this watch, BECAUSE it can take a modern 5600 bezel, while looking slightly weird, oh, well. But it does look better with a 5700 bezel, and the crystal is better protected then too. When is someone going to make a 3D printed metal bezel for these? That would be badass!
