    Gw5000 or Gw M5610.

    Hi everybody. I am planning to buy a new G-Shock, but don't know which model is better. The price difference between the two models is very high, but why? Is just the screwback plate that pumps up the price? Which is better?
    I actually own a DW5600E, bought on Amazon.

    Both have same module, but GW5000 has:

    - screwback
    - diamond like carbon coating
    - complete metal body (5610 is made in plastic)
    - softer resin strap
    - made in Japan
    - only for japan market
    - top class gshock, best ever made (imho)

    Dareius,

    The two watches serve the same function, however it will depend on what you want it for.

    Do you plan on wearing it and using it as a tool? If so, then buy the GW-M5610. The 5610 is super comfy and light on the wrist.

    Those that have the GW5000 swear it is one of the best watches they have ever owned.

    If you plan "Bask in it's glory" and enjoy the watch for what it is; a modern homage to the original square, then buy the GW5000.

    I have the 5610 and like it, some folks here do not because of the colors on the screen. It truly comes down to what you want.

    Good luck and enjoy which ever watch you purchase and welcome to the forum.
    Casio/ Citizen/ G-Shock/ Pro Trek/ Seiko

    I consider the GW-5000 more of an emotional purchase: it's a premium G-shock built with more expensive materials and is much more exclusive than regular squares. The 5610 shares the same functions, but at a much more affordable price.

    I also own a DW-5600e, and I alternate between the two watches. I consider these two the best G-shock squares. The GW-5000 appeals to my inner WIS who appreciates premium watches and exclusivity and the DW-5600e for its quality at an absurdly low price point.

    I kind of want a GW-5000 too, but wish it had a serial number!

    I agree. It was for me. The lineage of the watch was a great deal of the allure.
