    Three Basic New Arrivals Today!

    After an 8 yr period without a G-Shock, my new arrivals were waiting on the doorstep when I got home today.
    DW-5600E
    DW-6600
    DW-9052

    I was looking for something to suit a smaller wrist of approx 6.5". As expected, the DW5600 is easily the most appropriate and looks good. Definitely a keeper except for the fact that I ordered a DW5600E Fox Fire so this Illuminator is going on eBay.

    The DW9052 is also quite wearable due to the flexible strap although due to the thickness it does high. The band is quite thin compared to my other Citizen watches so I think the DW9052 would still work ok when worn under a business shirt. Might be a keeper for the short term.

    The DW6600 does not really work due to the large size and in particular the design of the band which doesn't really form to my wrist very well. This is going on eBay.

    I found it interesting reading other people's purchases. Oh well. Guess there is no need showing my purchases in the future.

    I enjoy seeing what people have purchashed. More the better. Adds to the fun and excitement even if I didn't get anything new.

    By the way, nice bunch there sml. What's next on the list?

    sml,

    Great watches.

    If your DW6600 has the band with the thick plastic buckle, that band can be replaced with a DW6600 band with a metal buckle. The DW6600 metal buckle band also fits on the DW9052. I have a DW9052 with a DW6600 metal buckle band and a DW6900 with the thick plastic buckle band. IMHO the metal buckle band is more flexible and comfortable than the thick plastic buckle band. Replacment bands, with the metal buckle, are available from Casio or off eBay.

    I'm a really big fan of the DW6600, nice choices!
    I am worth more than any item in my watch box.

    Sorry mate. I'm not good with the 5xxx range, so many different versions, I haven't made much effort at looking into them. Perhaps one of the 5xxx lovers of this forum can assist you.
