    GW-M5610 A Study in Minimalism

    My M5610. A Study in Minimalism through my reading of its functions

    For a timekeeping device:
    It tells me what time of the day it is, what day of the week it is, what day of the month it is and what month of the year it is. Firmly cementing this moment in time (timekeeping)
    It tells me what time it is anywhere else on the planet (world time)
    It tells me the time since a certain event (stopwatch / chronograph)
    It tells me the time until a certain event (CDT)
    It tells me when it is a specific time (Alarms / Hourly Signal)
    It syncs with radio transmitters to make sure it is the Exact time
    It charges from the sun, so that no matter worn or not, battery replaced or not, it is available to tell the time

    And even in form, it is square, because no digital watch needs to be round, and square is best to fit the human wrist

    I love my ranger, but my M5610 is just so incredibly comfortable and hassle free, it is difficult to think of a better watch for me. If I ever get to replace it, it will only ever probably be for GW-5000 J1F

    I fully agree:

    The 5610 is the one watch i woulod choose if i only could have one.

    Because of the nice feature package in a smaller shape it is the most veratile G-shock watch to wear.

    You see no pictures in my post?
    Photobucket decided to lock my pics behind a 40$/month prescription service.
    I used their services since 2009 so the most of my old threads have Photobucket pics inside.
    If you stumble across one of those threads and want to see the pic, PM me and i will re-attach it.
    What can we learn from all the lost information?

    I had one but always hate the red band around the face. I don't know why they did that.

    I like the red stripe, hate the "." that separates the month and day.

    It's my favorite G. I have a GW-5000J, but find the buttons tough to depress.

    Then you should buy a G-5600E and swap the modules and you are good to go. No more red stripe.

    I have the GWM5600. Another great attribute is how light it is.

    Re: GW-M5610 A Study in Minimalism

    The GWM5610 and GW5000 use the same module so you’re not really missing much in terms of functionality. The main difference is in the case design and you’ll have to deal with the additional weight. With that screwback case however is an increase in build quality which the GWM5610 lacks.

    For me, I will usually prefer a lighter, more comfortable watch and that watch for me is the GWS5600. It doesn’t have the red band either, which I disliked enough to get rid of my GWM5610.
