    Surfrider GRX-5600SRF-3 Review

    I just a did a full review of the Surfrider GRX-5600SRF-3 that I thought you guys might find interesting. The full post is here:

    Surfrider GRX-5600SRF-3 Review


    Here's the video part:



    I recommend watching the full 1080p version on YouTube:

    I'm still not sure what to think about the color combination. I like it more now than when I first saw the photos online. It's got a unique look and a great display. But I'm not sure yet how much wrist time it will be getting.

    I like the color scheme. It is a little off beat and draws your attention immideately. I have one on its way as well.

    Hi Riley,

    I think it is a great watch. I like the yellow tone, but the green color is a bit an odd color. A pity, the green color is not for me I think. I pretty much like the Surfriders Foundation. They are not only active in the US, but also in Europe, probably also worldwide.

    And before I forget, superb review, as always

    Cheers,

    Sjors

    I see that it's solar powered. Does it also sync to the atomic clocks?

    Dear Riley,

    The colour combo is great! I already have it since 2 months already.

    cheers,

    Nope. This model does not M6 atomic sync.

    Only GWX-5600 series have it.

    Hey Riley,

    Great review on an awesome watch.
    The unique serial numbering on the lower portion of the case you spoke of,
    just out of curiosity, are they actual (serial numbers) for each watch ?
    I read that there was a fixed number to be produced of this particular model. Given that that be the case, the serial number should reflect this. OR.... are they batch numbers, reflecting lots produced in specific periods ?
    I've seen the same type of alpha numeric coding on other solar and atomic / solar models as well.
    Either way, it would open up new insight into Casio's prduction process and hopefully unlock the code on production dates or otherwise relevant data.

    The code on my watch is as follows: 202A163J

    Thanks guys.

    It's not surprising to hear what others think. It seems to be one you either love or hate.

    Like he said above, no atomic. Keeps the price down at least.

    That's interesting. I just assumed they were all unique serial numbers. Why else do it right? But maybe it is in fact just a batch number or something for manufacturing reference purposes.

    Mine is 202A162J. So it seems unlikely that they are consecutive serial numbers. It would be much more likely that they were consecutive batches. I wonder how many have the same number?

    Anyone else want to post there's?
