    I finally see what all the hubbub is about (5600 content)

    After a 10 year hiatus from watch wearing and collecting, I returned to it about a month ago. I already have some pretty nice watches (well, to me anyway) from Sector, Noblia, Citizen, Pulsar and Skagen... But I've always loved G-shocks and I started off with a Gulfman which I really like. In the weeks following my Gulfman purchase I of course browsed this forum obsessively and learned of an almost universal love for "squares". It didn't take me long to pick up a 5600 and at first I thought it was just okay... Fast forward a couple weeks and it's the only watch I wear! Now that I've gotten used to the looks and feel of the watch, it's become a part of me.

    I'm a machinist and I wear it all day at work and I barely know it's there. I have my eye on some other g-shocks I'll be picking up in the near future but I don't think I'll ever part with my 5600

    You feel like a men when you have a "massive" watch oh the wrist, i like sometimes, but always get my squares to the wrist, light comfort simple design, and it doesnt have the weight, but for me it has a really good presence on the wrist, you can't go wrong with a square :) good luck resist the "need" to have only one :)

    Another infection of squaritis, I see. There's no cure, in case you're wondering. You'll just have to keep feeding it over time.

    The simple 5600 square style has stood the test of time, that's for sure.

    I finally broke down and got the 5600 with the atomic/solar functions...

    It is my go-to for the weekend... it loves riding on my tractor... and working in the yard..

    hard not to wear it all the time!

    Yeah I thought at first that this would be my last square.... Now that I've grown so fond of it I see myself getting a solar atomic version too... And maybe a different color also ;)

    Can you deny, there's nothing greater, nothing more, than the traveling hands of time.

    Not a 5600, but same design, you got to love a square, this one got in today and I'm amazed with the feel of this one on wrist!

    Own one. Love it to bits. Now scouring around to see if there are any other variants like it that wears smarter. Love that it is so thin.
