    GW-S5600-1JF matching bezel

    Hiya everyone!

    Just ordered a GW-S5600-1JF, carbon strap, titanium back case - ooooover excited!!!!!
    I donít know yet, but I might not be very keen on the shiny bezel, would you possibly know any matching bezel from other models?

    Thanks!!

    P.S. hereís a presentation photo, Iíll post a proper one as soon as I receive the watch :D

    I think the bezel looks great.

    The jelly glossy bezel looks great but I scuffed mine the first day of wear so off it went and I replaced it with one from a GWM5610. The strap is from the GW5000 as I didn't want to damage the CF strap, besides it doesn't match the GWM5610 matte resin. This is what it looks like right now.

    Q: Isn't the whole point of point of the GW-S5600-1JF to get the jelly glossy bezel and jelly glossy CF strap?

    Yes, kinda sorta. Thereís also the titanium back and screws, which does make the watch feel lighter. The crystal graphics are also specific to this watch and I find it much more interesting than that of the GW5000. The GW5000 crystal graphics are too monochromatic and slightly boring. Those items are more important to me than the CF strap, as cool as it is.

    Grabbed an S5600 off watchrecon and decided to leave it stock. Good graphics and a subtle shine looks fine.

    Re: GW-S5600-1JF matching bezel

    There is no bezel that will 'match' the carbon fibre/resin strap. Both the strap and bezel are a gloss finish if I'm not mistaken. That is part of the allure of the watch. It's bling. A gloss black or possibly matt black bezel might match the darkness of the strap a little, but it will still look a bit odd. You mean you want a black bezel not a transparent one? I wouldn't say that the original transparent colourless bezel didn't match the strap that strongly although I see your point. I would just leave them as is. If I was dead set of a different bezel, then I'd want a different strap too, in which case it'd be cheaper to just buy a GW-M5610 and buy the GW-S5600 case back and dial (and LCD?) for the couple of grams of extra lightness.

    BTW what is the difference between the LCD graphics colour on this watch compared with the GWM5610 or GW5000? I don't see any difference from the pics.

    It is true. The CF strap would look odd with a different bezel. Mea culpa.
    Iíve the same question though about the LCD difference between the GW-5000 and GW-S5600. Canít see any difference from the photos..
