I'm expecting my fourth from Seyia next week. Four?! Well, I had my first several years back and wore it daily for ages - I liked it so much I bought a spare. Then an unexpected expense arrived and I had to sell the spare to raise some funds. I bought another spare - but that went in search of a some other pieces. Finally I sold the original one when I downsized my collection. I kicked myself for doing that and then of course they became difficult to find.
Browsing Seyia's site last week, I couldn't quite believe it when I saw he had stock. I think it took me three seconds to login and reach for the CC. It's simply the best G-Shock there is. Here's a sales shot from #3.
Collected my 1 yesterday, gotta agree with all that's been said. Excellent G!
Weight, crisp display, resin and overall feel of the GW-5000 feels just great. Buttons are much harder to press but I kind of like that.
Time in all modes would make this the perfect G for me but I'm very happy as it is.
This is going to be my daily wearer for some time, it will be interesting to see how the soft resin strap holds up compared to my 5600C which has now gone into a much needed retirement.

My new one has landed safely and is sitting sync'ed sunbathing by my window. I just checked Seyia's site and was not surprised to see that he's out of stock once more. It seems that his latest stock was either from a previous run or Casio are currently making small production runs.
Coming up on three years with my 5000, I've worn it in around 14 countries, been fishing/scuba diving (pushed the buttons underwater to time my deco stops)/shoveling snow/getting drunk/etc. - still looks great and has never been an issue.

The GW-5000 has quickly become my favourite watch and it has some pretty tough competition. I own quite a few mechanical divers (PO 8500, Breitling Seawolf SS, GP Seahawk to name a few) yet I find myself reaching for the GW-5000 more often than not. It was also the only watch I took with me to the caribbean a few weeks ago where it accomponied me on several dives. It's supple strap makes it extremely comfortable to wear even in high heat and humid environments. The DLC treated full SS case is just awesome and gives it the perfect amount of heft one would associate with a very well built piece. It's fairly low key appearance seems to allow it to fit in anywhere.
Yes, I rinsed the salt off after the pic was taken:)
Some really great pics guys.
I'm really wanting one of these; hope one turns up on the sales forum soon!
