Okay, way back when in oh, say 1987 or so, I bought my first G. On the back it says "DW5600" and Module "691". I loved (and still do!) that watch, and although I always liked watches I didn't have time back then for such things. I just needed a good, rugged watch. Well, somewhere around 1994 I bought another, larger version. It says "DW5300" Module "901". It was years later before I learned these were the "Speed" and "Mission Impossible" G-Shocks. That probably explains why I found them so easily back then.
Anyway, it's confusing. The 5300 came out AFTER the 5600 and is a bigger watch? Am I right? Something doesn't seem right somehow. My 5600 is rather small for a G at about 43mm wide (the 5300 is about 47mm wide). Which makes me wonder how large the current 5600E series are.
Can anyone tell me the dimensions on the current 5600E series? I actually prefer the larger model. Either way, I still think these all-digital G's are classic and virtually unbreakable.
