    Thoughts on my GW-5000 bezel swap...

    Swapped the stock bezel on my gw-5k for the one on the 5600 heritage (pacparts).

    What do you guys think? I'm still undecided as of yet.

    Personally, I prefer the monochrome look of the original bezel, because it goes better with the watch head.

    Yes, I’d second this.

    I think it has appeal, brings out the red color of the "shock resist" badge!

    Thanks for the reply.

    Yeah, I'm with you on that. I will rock the red for a bit and then switch it back out. I was trying to match the red part that's on the bottom of the "shock resist" logo.

    I'm a purist at heart, and mods don't last long for me. Same with modding my car, I always revert back to stock.

    Is it the lighting or is the black of the " heritage" bezel darker? I like the way it matches the Multi Band 6 and Tough Solar panels.

    The lighting is for sure different. The stock pic was taken at work, under florescent lights. In person, the bezels are pretty much the same blackish hue. At least to my eyes.

    I prefer the original. Cause I believe it looks better on this watch. And, IMO the GW-5000 does not need any modding or improvements.

    Actually, one time I put the combi bracelet on mine (from the GW-M5610BC I think it was). Didn't really like it. Made the watch MUCH heavier, but I prefer the 5000 as it comes, on that great resin strap.

    I have the newer version combi on it, which is lighter than the original combi. Definitely feels more comfortable to me, But you are right in the sense that it makes the watch more noticeable, i.e. heavier, because it moves around on the wrist.
    I actually put the stock gw-5000 strap on my 35th anniv. Square (dw5035), and I ordered two more of the straps, one for my 35th anniv. Circle (dw5735) and another for a gwm5610 that I just ordered..
