    HELP! 5600KG-3 VS GXW-56 Olive King

    HELP!

    Hi Guys!

    I am torn. Managed to find a brand new in box 5600kg-3 which is around 240usd and a used gxw-56 olive king multiband 6 which is around 265usd but without box or papers.
    I am in a dilemma.

    Which would you go with and why?
    Would you get both?

    Cheers

    That price is very high for the 5600.

    The 56 is a Huge watch. Try before you buy, even if you have a 7 inch wrist, it is Big.

    Modded my Kings to positive screens as the negative screens are nearly invisible in some light conditions:





    GWX-56-1B is IMHO the best value....atomic and affordable, positive screen from the factory.



    It could be dressed up in green bezel and strap.

    Thanks mate.
    The 5600-kg3 is a brand new set, hard to find a NOS these days so i figured the price is always around there?

    Quite keen to go with the gxw-56 but its without boxes and papers though!

    Box and papers for G-Shocks are not really too important. Manuals/instructions are available online.

    If you like the 5600kg, go for it. It will probably fit better on a normal size wrist.

    KG's are usually priced higher for reasons I don't understand. Why is one color more expensive than another? They aren't a numbered series and no one knows how many were produced.
    If you're looking to get it just because it's supposedly rare and hope to flip it for a profit I wouldn't bother, who knows if prices will stay inflated. If these 2 are your only choices pick the one that you're more comfortable wearing, or more attracted to.
