    Speidel Twist-o-flex for DW5600?

    Hello G-Shockers, I have a question that might seem odd. I've searched the forum for an answer and didn't find one. if there is a thread out there that deals with this, please point me in the right direction.

    As the title indicates, I own a Casio DW5600. Normally I prefer mechanical watches, but I love how easy wearing, simple, ad feature-packed this watch is. I don't love the rubber strap it came on and I'd like to put it on a vintage style twisty bracelet. At the moment I have it on a two-piece nylon but I'm not crazy about it. The attached picture indicates that not only is the twist-o-flex possible, but has been done.

    Allwatchbands sells that bracelet, but only for 18-22mm lugs. The DW5600 has, as I understand it, 16mm lugs. I am aware of an etsy shop that sells very popular lug width adapters that I could use, and simply attach a 22mm bracelet, but that's not what seems to be happening in the pic that I linked above. I also think it could be a little bulky.

    Any thoughts? I'm guessing that speidel used to make a 16mm version but sold out, but I don't know. I'm wondering if I could get the 18mm version, but file it down?

    And before someone comments about these straps pulling hairs, no I am not concerned about that.

    Many thanks.

    DW5600C has a 18mm lug size (space). DW5600E (or other modern square except for full metal square) has 16mm lug size.

    Looks like the G-Shock twist-o-flex is stocked by various retailers:

    https://allwatchbands.com/products/s...and-mb00169302

    but not on the speidel site itself.

    btw - great prices on those speidel 18mm resin bands on amazon!

    Thank you; I didn't know that, and I think it explains how the 5600 in the photos has the bracelet on it without an adapter. In the post that photo came from, the OP mentioned that the rubber strap had broken, which would indicate it was an older one, and likely a 5600C.
