    Off Topic post Lost my trusty DW5600, need another square. With atomic this time.

    So I went to this concert and went to the pits where people are basically wrestling.
    Noticed my DW-5600 was gone.

    I do have two G-5500's but decided they are collectors items (for me) and am not comfortable with wearing them at this moment.
    I tend to lose my watches, the DW5600 is certainly not the first one.

    I got my eyes on a GWM-5610 but was wondering if there are other available (as in attainable for a fair price) 5600 or 5500 models with atomic out there.
    Obviously I'm keeping my eyes open for a 5500 (5525,5530) model with atomic as well.

    So I'm looking for a square model with:
    - Atomic
    - at least a 24 hour stopwatch
    - below $150

    I wish the GWM-5600 was still available because it has a 1000 hour stopwatch and the 5610 seems like a downgrade.
    The GWX-5600 seems feature packed but it only has a 60 minute stopwatch so it is out.

    Edit.
    Since everybody likes pictures here a picture of my modded G-5500 with ALIFE bezel

    I don't have the exact model # in my head, but according to starscream's new release threads, a new, standard (nothing limited or fancy) 5500 should be out by the years end at the latest

    It's a GW, could very well be over 150$ 'though:

    Maybe the G-5600e. I think it's almost the same as the DW-5600, except that it's solar powered.

    *edit*

    It seems to have world time as a feature, which could be handy for travelers.

    Re the Oct release...it's the GW-5510 and it's just a tad above US$150 (+ shipping) from Rakuten at this point. It sports the same module as the GW-M5610 (3159).

    Positive display:

    Negative display:

    Holy crap I'm in love! I've been waiting for a black atomic 5500 with no weird coloured display! And now they released two?!

    Will these be available in the future through normal stores or Ebay you think at a $150 price?
    If so, I might just as well start wearing my modded G-5500 and replace it with the new GW-5510 for my collection.

    It DOES look quite a bit like the DW-5600, but it's NOT atomic.

    It is possible but you may have to wait a few months minimum.

    Personally I think both GW-M5610 and the GW-5510s are good choices.

    Re: Lost my trusty DW5600, need another square. With atomic this time.

    To conclude this thread; I just won a GW-5525A Black Dawn edition in good shape!
    Since it looks less good then my modded G-5500 (yellow display) I probably won't have an issue making this my beater.

    It was an exciting bid; my maximum snipe was $86 at 4 seconds and with 10 seconds to go the bid went up to $82.
    With shipping agreed (beforehand off course) to $14 I think $100 total is not bad considering I live in Europe :)

    Now the waiting begins!
