so today a little package came and inside was this:
It's my first 5600-type screwback. It also was very cheap because obviously the seller didn't know what he was selling and the pic was blurry and crappy - barely good enough to see what it was.
The bezel and strap are not really in good shape any more but tiktox has them in stock so no worry. The screwback is much more comfy on the wrist than the normal 4-screw caseback of the DW-5600E which gives me red marks on the wrist so I never wear my DW-5600E. Also the buttons are far better because they are protruding a little further and are centered in the recessed areas of the bezel so I can work them with my fingertips and don't have to use my fingernails which always bothered me on the DW-5600E.
So next month I'll order a new bezel and strap and maybe also some new bezel screws and it's as good as new - the crystal only has some very small scratches on it. Even the little light bulb is still working - by the way: does anybody know what kind of light that is? Is it an LED or does it work like a normal light bulb with a little wire inside?
