    GXW-56 Just Bought!!- Mini Review

    Just bought the highly anticipated gold faced GXW-56-1BJF last night in Tokyo for US$215. Liked the black stealth buttons better than the red buttons on the reverse display.
    According to salesman those bad boys just came in Saturday!

    Just a mini review sorry no pics at the moment.

    Pros
    - Made in JAPAN! Surprised by this as I thought only Frogs were made in Japan.

    - Very comfortable double tang strap. Grooves doesn't eat into skin like Gulfman. More comforable than the GW-7900B even without the flaps.

    - Light and comfortable. Doesn't really feel it's there.

    - Big face. About the size of GW200 Frogs.

    - Nice and crisp display.

    - Big round buttons are easy to operate/press unlike Mudman. Easy to press even with gloves.

    - Module is similar to GW-5000. Not sure if GW-5000 has the switchable world time (in place of the day/date).

    Cons
    - None

    Let me know if you need further info

    Congratulations on this year's perhaps most discussed G-shock.
    Many have waited for this for long time. I think we have something around 20-30 threads about this model. We are excited about upcoming pictures. :thanks

    Agreed. That's just an awful tease!
    The Search function on vBulletin forums isn't very smart. If you want to search for a complete string in the G-Shock forum, or for posts which include multiple words, use Google, and enter site:forums.watchuseek.com/f17 into the search box. Then use normal google syntax after that to enter your search.
