    GW5000 question

    I just got a 5600 and at first thought it was too small but now I think it's okay. Does the GW5000 wear any larger? A little larger size wouldn't bother me. I think I read it is slightly thicker. Is the 5000 worth the money? I use my 5600 at work but was thinking of a GW5000 to use during outdoor activities like hunting. I like the idea of the screw caseback but the price difference is pretty high. Thanks

    The GW5000 is pretty heavy. The screwback lifts it off your wrist a few millimeters. The face is going to cover the same amount of your wrist though.

    is the 5000 worth the extra money? Yes.

    Here it is on the wrist. It is a little heavier than most Gs but still incredibly comfortable and so good to look at. I can heartily recommend them!

    Well I pulled the trigger and ordered a GW-5000-1JF from seiyajapan. Now the waiting begins. I have a feeling this watch will be on my wrist a lot. Thanks for the help.

    Congratulations for such a great aquisition. I'm wearing mine today and it's always a pleasure to rediscover it after a couple of weeks of Riseman/5600 swapping.
