Well after 6 months of constant use my King was starting to lose its appeal as a daily beater. It was ideal as I moved on from my Suunto Core as it was large and had a negative display plus didn't have all the bells and whistles (with regards to function) which is what made me change from the Core.
So after briefly being tempted by the 9300 Mudman (Even though I have no use for any of the features there's just something about it), I decided to go with something from the 5600 range. Shortly after purchasing the King I was attracted to this range so it was inevitable I would end up acquiring one.
And so, after a bit of searching I was tempted with the 'MS' version however whilst browsing eBay a GW-M5600 popped up. After a few enquires with the seller they popped up a 'buy it now' price and I snapped it up for £64 delivered.
First impressions when I opened the box was.....it's pretty small! Then again for the past 4 years or so I've been used to a circa 50mm watch as a daily (and occasional) wearer. It's very light as well, in fact as I type it's on my wrist and you can easily forget it's there. Not so with the King!
Feature wise it does the job. All I ever use is the time function and on occasion the CDT where 60mins is more then enough. I do like however the 5 sec countdown that you can use with the stopwatch.
It will be interesting to see if the time sync's at night as I tend to not take off my watch so will be interesting to see whether it sync's. Not too fussed however as I can always do a manual sync if and when I choose. To be honest aside from setting my King when I received it, I've never gone back to adjusting the time, thus it's 49 secs ahead 6 months later. Still inside the +/-15secs a month Casio claim.
I can see this being the daily wearer for a while. I won't ignore the fact I'lll probably be tempted with other models (and may well purchase them) but for the time being i'm satisfied.
Here's a pic with the King and on the wrist
