    some help finding a particular gshock

    Hi Guys,
    I wonder if ye can give me some opinions on a suitable g shock with the following characteristics:

    1. Not huge, 5600 or ideally the round 5700( a big ask I know). Any non huge model is fine though
    2. Fabric strap by default. I know you can buy the adapters but if there were one with a fabric strap by default it would be great.
    3. No clutter or not too much of it on the dial. I prefer a cleaner dial with a functional display.
    4. Must have CDT.

    Cheers,
    Barry.

    P.S. I have googled many models but it will be really interesting to see the models that ye like with similar features.

    I think the DW-5600E is probably the watch you are looking for indeed. Another suggestion of me is the Timex Ironman Shock 200m model T5K196. It is pretty much a direct competitor to the DW-5600E:

    - Same battery: CR2016
    - uncluttered Display with huge digits
    - small on the wrist, but a little taller than the Casio
    - 24h CDT (settable to the second)
    - 100h Stopwatch
    - 1 alarm (settable for weekdays, weekends, daily)
    - second timezone (free configurable)
    - 200m wr
    - shock resist
    - easy to press buttons (not so on the DW-5600)
    - night mode for any button
    - reversed lume (negative illuminated digits)
    - acrylic crystal (can be an advantage, or a disadvantage - it's up to you)
    - european style date (DD.MM. - not found on many Casios)
    - lightweight (54grams)
    - ingenious strap retainer
    - cheap (about the same price as the DW-500E)

    Choosing between this two is pretty though - both watches are serious, no-nonsense tool watches with great functionality and down to earth displays. Both are very similar with slight advantages/disadvantages depending what is more important to you. Personally I give them the same rating, on a scale of 1-10 they get a 9. A pic of mine:




    cheers

    I suggest a G-7710CL:
    - small: check
    - fabric strap: check
    - no clutter: check
    - CDT: check

    Thanks guys. Sedi that's the one, its exactly what I want. I had seen its brothers but not that one. Do you perhaps know of anywhere selling them at the minute. I have checked around and they seem scarce at best.
    Cheers.

    Glad I could help. Let us know how you like it. The G-7710 is one of my favourites. The timer is 2 x 99hrs setable to the second with auto repeat btw. And it has one of the loudest alarms of any G.

    Cheers, Sedi
