    Looking for Small G-Shock Recommendations

    Time to add a G-Shock to my collection. Problem is I have puny 6.25" wrists and I generally don't like bulk. For my other watches I have a strict everything 40mm or less rule.

    I have had trouble looking for smaller G's in the past but came upon the DW5600BB. I am actually encouraged that it is listed under womens watches and as a Unisex model, as this should indicate the size is right for me. I like the minimalist design and look. Im about ready to pull the trigger but just wanted to post to make sure I'm not missing anything. If you've got a suggestion for another model that would work for my needs let me know!

    Look to the past to find your future: 1) AWG-501 2) GW-1500A 3) GW-M850. 4) GW-M500BA and 5) GW-056 any of these should fit you fine and they are all solar/atomic models so really nice. They are all still available on the resale market, check out ‘WatchRecon’ and put on search alerts on eBay. I was fortunate as mine were sourced from collectors or estates and have had little to no use. ( I do wear the GW-056 almost nightly now as it has become my de-facto sleeping watch). I have a rather sizable collection of vintage G-Shocks and any of these would be a classic addition to anyone’s collection or attire: Name:  2ABF02C1-81B3-4911-B021-311309D2018A.jpeg

    Whoops- the second photo is actually that of a vintage AW-591GBX and while it is not a solar/atomic model it is a beautiful timepiece that would also fit you nicely. Here is another photo of AW-591GBX:Name:  D4722883-30F7-4E66-B167-2B52CC880012.jpeg

    GW500 is actually pretty bulky compared to others.
    I think G100 should be mentioned and there are a lot of vintage models which suit the smaller wrists.
    There is nothing wrong with DW9052 and due to strap construction it actually sits well.
    G2900 comes to mid too.
    Best choice is square. Positive square to have it as start.

    It should be special!

    Re: Looking for Small G-Shock Recommendations

    Among those I own, the GLX-5600, GLS-5600, G-7700 and AWG-M100 are some of the smaller models. Of these, the GLX-5600 would likely fit the best on a smaller wrist. The GLS-5600 is the same size, but most seem to come with a cloth strap with widely-spaced holes, so the fit can be hit or miss.

    Keep in mind that there are two sizes of the most common squares. The DW-5600, like the one you're interested in, is the slightly larger size, as is the GWX-5600. The GW-M5610, GLX-5600 and GLS-5600 are some examples of the slightly smaller size. I suspect one of the latter size might work better on a small wrist, but the only way to really tell is to try it on your own wrist.

    Here is my GLX-5600-1 with a GW-M5610-1B bezel and GW-5000 strap.

    When stock, the GLX-5600-1 has a glossy black bezel and strap. I prefer the matte black bezel and strap.

    The G-7700/7710 has about the same small size like the AWG-M100 mentioned above.

    Photobucket decided to lock my pics behind a 40$/month prescription service.
    I used their services since 2009 so the most of my old threads have Photobucket pics inside.
    If you stumble across one of those threads and want to see the pic, PM me and i will re-attach it.
    What can we learn from all the lost information?

    Looking for Small G-Shock Recommendations

    I recently bought G2900 and I can vouch for how small it wears on my 6.5inch wrist. It is slightly thicker than squares but feels even smaller than squares. Definitely much smaller than the 40mm automatic I have.

    GWM500/530 I’ve owned in the past, case is in the small side but strap configuration flares out quite a bit and not as contoured, definitely leaving gaps on both sides between watch and wrist. One reason I sold it.
