    DW5600C bezel availability on the decline

    Man, this sucks. I think I bought the last bezel (or next to last) on tiktox, and it's actually the gold-lettered one, not the white-lettered one. It's NLA over there.

    I forgot how much beefier this is than the E series, which I have one of as well. I've worn it all weekend long.

    Somebody ought to repro these. Namely the dude who did one for the E in silver.

    It is a shame that they are no longer making the bezels. However, the gold lettering looks pretty good.

    Re: DW5600C bezel availability on the decline

    Don't GW-5000 bezels fit? If so they might not be original, but at least they could keep DW-5600C's in use and looking goos for a few more years...

    Re: DW5600C bezel availability on the decline

    Only DW-5600C bezels fit DW-5600C's. The case is of a different shape than newer models. The decision to discontinue this part has pretty much killed the G-Shock collecting hobby for me and there must be 1000's of vintage screwbacks out there that will now never be restored. Well unless you go "Brazilian" .

    There's got to be some other resources out there, eBay is always good with being able to find some. You are right though world time. That kind of stinks for the ones that find theirs at a garage sale or the ollucky finds.

    I know how you feel. I was lucky and got a Casio replacement gold letter one for a DW-5200C-9 I have that made it perfect. My problem is I am missing one gold '-' bezel screw for this one. Impossible to find IMHO lol. I was thinking about selling it anyway as I already have a mint example. Happy Hunting -Ronbo

    Oh, I didn't realise that. It puts me off a bit now if I ever found one at a car boot sale, etc.

    What about things like the DW5025's, DW5000ML, DW5000SL. From being on the forum, I'm guessing that all these newer models have the same size case as the GW5000, as I've seen some bezel swaps. That still means that you can hopefully get replacement bezels on these for a few more years and have a few colour options if you get stuck on an original replacement.
