    Question Gw5000 has no other variations hmmm...

    Anyone else find it unusual that the gw5000 has no other variations after all these years? Yes there is the gw5000b with the negative display but it stopped only after a year of production. Seven years and the gw5000 remained in its original form.

    I personally would like to see (or insta-buy) a gw5000g with a color variation same as the dw5600eg (gold buttons, buckles, gold letters, gold hue lcd, gold screwback)

    Or a gw5000kg

    or a gw-t5000

    making more variations of this popular watch would make casio more $$$

    I actually think it's somewhat surprising that Casio keeps making the GW-5000. It's truly for collectors and enthusiasts only. I think Casio has probably sold more of each 6900 colourway than all GW-5000s ever, for example.

    I like the idea of not having multiple variations. The GW-5000 is the current iteration of THE original G-Shock. It is special because it is the antithesis of what G-Shock has become. Just my opinion.

    I think the porter collab titanium (gw-t5030) is a variant of gw5000

    I'm sorta glad they aren't milking it with a new color for +$100-200 ever year.
    If anything I say it's nice that they've gradually decreased in price, my wallet is glad too :P

    I'm kind of glad they have kept it as-is.

    I have about 50 Gs and Protreks, give or take a few. All kinds of models and sizes. Today, I wanted to wear one that was low-profile (literally, in height), AND super comfortable. What did I reach for? The GW-5000. It's pretty awesome in its current form.

    ^ Not to derail the thread Time4Playnow, but that's a great collection. Which models do you wear and like the most?

    P.S. I had a GW-5000 and lost it! Really miss it and hope to buy another.

    That made my heart hurt. I actually got up to put my hands on my GW-5000.

    I wear the Rangeman the most, without a doubt. (I have 7 Rangeman versions!!) I like all of the Gs and Protreks I have, but I'll get into a habit where I'll wear the same few for 2-3 weeks or longer. Then switch them out. Right now it's a Ranger, MTG, GW-5000, and my new favorite Protrek, the PRW-3100G.

    I'm wearing my GW-5000 right now!

    M5610 has the same movement as the GW-5000, without the screwback case and DLC, available in several different colors

    GW-M5610SD

    Part of the exclusivity of the GW-5000 is that there are NOT a lot of those watches produced, and they have to be imported from Japan. More versions would mean that it was less exclusive, and would probably lower the artificially inflated price. (Yes, it costs more to produce a G-Shock with a DLC-coated steel case, but it can't cost THAT much more!)

    The Porter collab has a caseback which is attached with four screws, which means it doesn't have a steel case, and which means it's a variant of the GW-M5610: https://forums.watchuseek.com/f17/new...e-2838498.html
