    Please help me find my next G-Shock

    Hi fellow g shock fans,

    I am currently on the lookout for my next G Shock. I thought I had found it in the GW5000, until I tried on its similar sized cousin the DW5600 and realized its too small for my wrist! My wife says it looks like a child's watch on me.

    So now its back to the hunt. But I am beginning to doubt what I am looking for exist...

    I would like to have

    1. Stainless steel or DLC case as per GW5000. Resin bezel is fine as that is easily replaceable.
    2. Size around mudman or gulfman. I have the mudman now and its a fine size. Slightly bigger is ok too I guess
    3. Larger than GW5000, smaller than Frogman, which I am aware has a stainless steel case too...
    4. Only digital display.

    Can any g shock gurus point me in the right direction?

    Your first criterion kills everything but the GW-5000 and the Frogs.
    Cheers!

    I did look at them, but I understand they have combination of plastic and metal cases?

    Hmm, not absolutely sure about this but to my knowledge, the MTG series are constructed of resin bezel, attached to steel top plate which is attached to a resin surround which is screwed to a steel case back. Giez are resin bezels or sections attached to steel cases and MRGs are titanium or steel throughout.

    Anyone more knowledgable than me, please correct any misinformation.

    I was always under the impression the GW5000 and Gulfman were darn similar in size. (I can scarce tell a size difference unless they are right next to each other)

    I dunno, you shud try again for the gw5000.

    48.9 X 42.8 X 13.5 mm (gw5000)

    51 X 46 X 16.4 mm (Gulfman)
