    Tom Hanks seems worn a G Shock in "Cast Away": What Kind?

    Tom Hanks seems worn a G Shock in "Cast Away". I'm not really sure but I think 80% of probability it was G Shock DW 5600. Anyone have an opinion of this?

    The resolution of the picture's too low to identify the watch. I'm guessing it's most likely a square, probably a 5600e or even a 5600c.

    The res is pretty low, but it looks like the area where "G-Shock" would be written on the bottom is on a raised lip, which would point to it being a 5600E.

    Here are your 3 pictures, with the watch section enlarged and rotated to the correct orientation. In a normal left wrist watch wearing position, pinky side is the top of watch and thumb side is the bottom. Looks like the first photo is the clearest, but still it's very hard to tell. Like Ottovon said, it's most likely a 5600 series G-shock square.

    This also makes me wonder... I watched this movie few years ago, I don't seem to remember Hanks was wearing a watch on the island after the plane crash. I guess it got ripped off his wrist during the crash. I guess G-shocks are not plane crash proof, then.

    It looks like a 5600E, as Ottovonn said.

    Was just going to say this. It can't be a 5600C because of the raised lip. 5600E is most likely.

    At the next scenes, Hanks took off his watch when he washed his hands at the airplane toilet, and suddenly there were an explosion which cause the airplane crash.


    Hanks is one of my favourite actor. I'm glad to see him with G Shock in a movie. Yes, I think it's one of DW 5600 series.

    So, in movie-verse, somewhere out in the sea near that island, there sits a lone G-Shock in or around that plane wreckage. Who's got scuba gear and/or a submarine? Think the resin is still good?

    Or...perhaps it went into the mystery box with the angel wings that he delivers at the end?

    He wears a G-Shock and drives a Jeep Cherokee. Like me, in fact.
