    Strap or band buckle swap between 5600e & 5600c

    Can I use the DW-5600e strap buckle to a DW-5600c strap.
    I have a DW-5600C watch and I can't find a silver buckle band to match with it. I bought a replacement strap with gold tone buckle.
    Since I can't find a silver tone buckle for my DW-5600C, I am planning to get a DW-5600E silver tone buckle and use the buckle for my DW-5600C.
    But before I buy, please answer my question if it's possible to swap the buckle between the two.
    Thanks.

    Yes you can. I used to do it with GW-5000 buckles, and they are the same size. I preferred the GW-5000 buckles because they said Japan like the original DW-5600C buckles.

    REAL vintage DW-5600C buckles have a distinct look to them, and the lettering on the back is somewhat crude compared to modern buckles, so people who know these watches well will be able to tell that it is not an old buckle. But as far as fit and looks, it will work well for you
