    That's better! GLX-5600 on matte-black bezel and bands

    Recently got the black GLX-5600 but just didn't like the standard glossy look and knew I wouldn't wear it much.

    So here it is with new bezel and straps, looks more like a 5600 now.

    For anyone else interested in doing the same please note you'll need the band and bezel from a GW-M5600 as the DW-5600 bezel will not fit.

    That would be correct .

    Yes, very nice. Never liked the gloss look for a G-Shock... reminds me too much of the Candy Addidas, Levis plastic watches and cheap knock-offs that kids seem to wear these days.

    Nice swap! I was contemplating this as well...

    Anyways the GLX-5600 black version is already sold out in Singapore, and the distributors are finding it tough to re-stock. They still have lots of white and red ones, though.

    Local members, if you are one of those looking to add the black versions, don't hesitate if you happen to see one at retail.
