At first glance, the GW-5000 may not be a rational purchase considering the availability of options that share similar functions.
This watch verges on the territory of luxury watches, which are arguably purely emotional purchases based on craftsmanship and abstractions such as "horological significance."
As someone who's spent quite a sum on mechanical pieces, and nearly cried when said mechanicals brushed against a wall, the GW-5000 provides me with a premium piece that I can wear without much worry.
In that sense, the GW-5000 is somewhat of a rational purchase, at least from the perspective of WIS -- whose criteria for watch ownership extend beyond practical reasons and border on insanity.
Just joined the club. The band is noticeably thinner and more giving than my 5600s. Very comfortable.
Anyone know how can I buy a gw5000b strap and bezel? I just scratched the metal part of my strap. :(
