    GW M5600 - alternative straps

    Hi All

    The strap on my GW M5600 needs replacing. I'd like a strap without the circular 'dimples'. I've seen other 5600's with un-dimpled straps but have no idea on serial numbers etc, does anyone have any ideas? Serial numbers and potential suppliers would be useful - Tiktox seems to have a decent range for instance.

    Some pictures would be great too if anyone has any!

    Thanks a lot

    Matt

    The "undimpled" strap you need was i.e. used for the DW-5600MS and the DW-6900MS.

    On Tiktox you can find it here:

    DW-6900MS-1, Resin - Tiktox

    Splendid. That's exactly what I'm after and have ordered one.

    Thanks very much

    A DW-6900 band will fit a DW-5600? But I don't think my Combi Bracelet for the GW-6900-BC1 will fit the GW-5000-1JF will it?

    Agreed. Just watch that the MS resin is a very dark grey rather than black so check the match in strong light before ripping up all the packaging etc.

    Sent on the go
    The 7900's are my favourites, although the 56s are currently my focus. But nothing is excluded, except pink Risemans.

    I did notice it looked matt rather than shiny on a you tube review but think it will be fine for me. We shall see.

    The new strap arrived this morning, speedily despatched by Tiktox. There is some difference in colour and texture as anticipated and overall I'm pleased with it. Only thing is this was my first time changing a g shock strap and there's quite a lot of scratching to the underside of the lugs. The damage is minor but I'm concerned about the affect of cumulative damage when I change straps the next time, and indeed the time after that. I checked a you tube tutorial and used a precision screw driver to lever the strap on and off but is there a better way?
