    New GW-5000-1JF just landed from Japan

    Well I have to say I had another EXCELLENT transaction with Seiya in Japan. Japan to Maryland, USA in 3 days. By the serial number on the back of the DLC coating it looks as though this watch was made 9/26/2013.

    Looks great, classic 5000. Enjoy wearing it

    Did you get any special additional gift from the seller? They usually add a thing or two...

    I did not receive anything additional except two catalogs. I have purchased other watches from Japan and have NEVER received any gift :(

    I guess the catalogues were the gifts?

    The watch itself is so nice you don't need additional gifts, that's probably the reason why they didn't include anything, they didn't think it's neccessary

    I did make one modification to the new GW-5000-1JF, I took the buckle from the GW-5600J and put it on the GW-5000-1JF. I just love the little "G" on the buckle. I don't know if I could have bought the buckle with the little "G" by itself so I did a swap.

    That's a really clever touch -- I like it!

    Enjoy your 5000, and congratulations. Cheers!

    I asked in another post/thread about the Combi Bracelet for the GW-6900BC-1 fitting on the GW-5000-1JF. So I figured how hard is it, just try.

    Well it works….

    I like the look of these, but why is there so much love for this watch, I don't understand what the difference is between the 5600.
