    Solar atomic square with three-letter dot matrix day display...and preferably in white?

    Hello! I'm hoping you all can help me find my ideal square G-Shock. These are the criteria I'm looking for:


    • Solar atomic (can be multi-band 5 or 6, as I'm in the US)
    • Square case
    • Three-letter dot matrix day display
    • Date display
    • Positive LCD
    • Preferably no tide/moon data, as I have no real use for this and this also takes up display real estate
    • Preferably white, or at least a module where I could swap the bezel and strap for white ones


    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

    These are the three closest models I've seen so far, but each one of them has a deal-breaker:

    GWX-5600WA-7: very nice watch, but I wish the band and bezel were pure white (instead of white and gray), and I'm not loving the tide/moon info.

    DW-D5600P-7JF: very close, but no solar atomic. I'm also not a fan of the bull bars, but I understand they are easily removable on this model

    GWM5600A-7: very very close, but it has the two-letter day display and dot matrix date. Also, seems a little hard to actually buy.

    Oh yeah, thanks! I actually came across this one already, and it's awesome. Hard to find though, I can't find it anywhere at the moment. However, I edited my original post to reflect that I would like the date to display in addition to the day. But if this one was available, I would definitely consider it!

    I might be too strict with my criteria--based on further research, it looks like there may not be an actual watch that checks all the boxes!

    Can anyone comment on the legibility/readability of the display on the GW-M5610MD-7? I currently have one negative display G-Shock, and find it very difficult to read.

    If you are ok with a 5610, you don't need to go with a negative display.

    GW-M5610LG-8jf is a positive display. White band. Check rakuten. I'm sure there are others.

    Or you can mix/match the one you have selected with another gw-m5610

    Thanks for letting me know about this model! However, it looks like this is technically a light gray, with color code 8. Do they make this in color code 7? If not, I guess I can swap out the bezel and strap...
