    Really like the 5700's...too bad they're not as popular

    I've always wondered why there aren't more 5700 variations or models. I know the square 5600 is the G-shock icon, but I personally really like the 5700 series...but there are very few models available or around, and they rarely have new models or editions coming out. Anyhow, it's a typhoon day over here so thought I'd upload my modded 5700...and a couple scans of a 5600 on kevlar strap...

    the 5700 isnt as popular as, say the 5600/6900, but i like the feeling of wearing a 'different' watch

    i have two variants..

    the DW-5750-RE



    and the GL-240-2JF

    Yeah I love this series but they are hard to come by, more so the DW-5700 series. More common now, I believe still a current series in Japan is the G-5700. There are a couple of interesting issues in the series, like the G-5700L and g-5700RF. Also like the ones posted by lee172, I would love to get the dw-5750RE, the g-5700b etc.

    It's a square face in a round bezel.

    It's not as eye appealing as a square face in a square bezel.

    Just looks wrong.
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    I absolutely love the 5700's!!! I don't personally find them to be as good looking as the 5600's, but the 5700's are definitely the superior G-Shocks. The 5700's have far better crystal protection than the 5600's, which is the 5600's Achilles heel.

    Finding 5700's is not easy. Even harder than finding the watches is finding the parts. Spare 5700 bezels are not easily obtained.
