    My fist G just came in

    Just received my DW-5600E.
    Ordered it on the Bay some days ago from Hong Kong. Great quick transaction. Nice watch...

    Nice functions, feels solid enough. Little bit bigger than what I expected maybe, but not uncomfortably big. Think I will wear it a lot!

    Maybe in the near future I'll buy an extra dw-5600 in the real black blue eyed version and a G-5600 if I can bring myself to forgetting about the supposed battery problems...

    Too bad those G-5600 cannot be bought (and serviced!) here in Europe.

    All and all I am satisfied with the DW!

    Congratulations - you've bought the G that has more G-Whizz genes than any currently available G!

    There'll be more...
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    I got mine as well. It's solid as a tank. Also bigger than what I expected - the brackets under the band extend the band at least 6 mm away from the case on either side. This means that the band doesn't conform to the sides of my wrist. This leaves a sizeable gap between the band and my wrist where the band meets the case on either side.

    I might change the band to velcro or something else so that it will drop straight down on either side of the case, instead of being distorted by the brackets.

    Nice watch!:gold

    Maybe because it's your first G. When I got mine, I found it smaller than what I imagined. Still getting used to a small G on my wrist, But I love it.

    And here's my third:

    The watch comes pretty far from your wrist due to the strap that goes underneat the case. I will replace the band by a resin strap to do what has become known as "The Wongster Mod"....
