    Just got a Gw-5600BCJST

    Can anyone tell me anything about it? I'm guessing it's a more expensive since it has a bracelet and reverse display. I can't find much info on it. I was at a thrift shop and, found it in their jewelry counter. I got it on sale for 30.

    Re: Just got a Gw-5600BCJST

    Based on your location, "thirty" = "$30 USD?!?" You got yourself a deal -- solar/atomic for less than a new DW-5600E, AND on a bracelet!

    Here's the manual: http://ftp.casio.co.jp/pub/world_manual/wat/en/qw2924.pdf

    The positive solar/atomic "square" (on a resin strap) has just drifted down in price to just over $100 USD. If someone wants to order just the bracelet from PacParts, that's $100 or so too. There was a thread around here recently asking why a similar watch cost so much more than a GW-M5610, but I can't find it now.

    It's definitely the upscale version, and from what I can see here, they never targeted that model for a US release, only releasing it with "JDM" and "ER" suffixes. You got a great deal!

    I paid $200 for one of these from Yahoo Japan Auctions a couple years ago. This is a pretty hard to find version these days, and yes, $30 is an outstanding deal!

    This bracelet will fit this model, and a GW-5600J but not normal case sizes (it won't fit a DW-5600E, or GW-M5610, for example). There is another bracelet that fits those models, but this bracelet is the less common version and won't fit most models.

    Looks like the same module as the GW-5600J (tall digits with no simultaneous day & date) except it has the negative screen and the bracelet. Never seen one before. Good snag!

    Awesome deal, I found one on the bay for $120, which I thought was a good deal, you got a crazy deal.

    The bracelet alone is worth way more than that

    Is it easy to adjust bracelet? Too loose fitting.
