    My 1st Casio G-Shock GW-M5600BC

    Hello folks, Although I have been tinkering with watches for some time now, mainly mechanical analog timepieces. I have never really been intrigued with LCD watches, so you can say I am very green in this area. In this buy/sell/trade watch world that we are in, I've had several G-Shocks come my way but never pulled the trigger until yesterday. The first thing that stood out on this watch was the plastic(resin) and metal bracelet. Secondly, there was just something about the face(dial) that was captivating and lastly the price, I purchased it for $30. After reading about this online, I learned a few things, its discontinued (replaced with GW-5610), solar, atomic, reverse LCD, etc. So is this a rare watch? How much is its current market value? Thanks.

    I think the bracelet alone is worth more than what you paid for And is highly sought after. Nice find!

    Yep - I like the bracelet, too. And the reverse display. Good buy.

    That's an even better deal than my £25 M5610 find the other day. I originally had the glossy black minimal dial writing version of your watch but with a regular strap. It was £104 on Amazon.

    Great find - you may find legibility of the display a bit tricky when not in a well-lit room or outside, but there is always auto-el.

    Agreed. That bracelet new is about $100 from parts resellers, and occasionally you can get it for less when there's a site sale. $30 for a GW-M5600BC? Steal. SUPER steal. That's cheaper than a full retail price of a DW-5600E!

    Are you going to keep it or resell? Sounds like from your question that you're exploring the possibility of flipping...

    Prices seem to be all over the place on G-Shocks. I would not know where to even begin with the price.
