    Screwback with Multiband 6 recommendation

    I try to find my next G with Screwback with mutliband 6 function.

    Most recent limited screwback square ones don't have multiband 6
    Apart from the new SS GMW-2000, another plastic choice?

    thanks

    I'm not sure "plastic" G-Shocks with screwbacks exist. I also tried looking up the GMW-2000 and was unable to find it. I think you mean the GMW-B5000.

    Perhaps try the GW-S5600, a JDM square with multiband 6. This watch has easy-to-press buttons and is perhaps the lightest square out there. The strap is carbon reinforced for increased durability. The case is resin with a titanium backplate, however.

    Based on your criteria, I think you might be looking for the GW-5000. It has multiband 6 capabilities and a screwback DLC stainless steel case.

    The vast majority of G-Shocks are constructed with a resin case, and a metal back plate attached with several small screws.

    AFAIK, when you say "screwback" then you have narrowed the field to a small handful of watches with a stainless steel case under the bezel, such as the GW-5000 and similar.

    The GW-5000 1JF is what you want. Go look at the thread, its the ultimate Gshock.

    GIEZ GS1100 (MB5, I have that one), GS1200, GS1300 and GS 1400, all screwbacks. Probably a few others, I think I saw the odd Oceanus with atomic and screwback too.

    Yeah, not sure if the OP realizes that "screwback and MB6" really narrows the field - a LOT.

    GW-5000, GMW-B5000, Frogman (multiple models). Take your pick!

    The GW-5000 1JF came to my mind too unless you wanted to avoid squares.

    thank you all. It did seem GW-5000 is the only one out in the market for my spec.

    Unpaired and happy. MB6 works great on this screwback.
