    What parts if any...

    Does anyone know if there are replacement parts for the newer GW-M5600's available yet? im still waiting for mine to arrive and was wondering what was available for modifications. i mainly ask because id like to know if the bezel is compatible with any other G,GW,or DW-5XXX series watches. can i replace it with say a DW-5700 reissue bezel perhaps the only thing ive seen that might work would be the GW-M5500, (or of course the glorious gold bezel) but i hear that bezel is not removable.??? any info at all, is as always greatly appreciated:thanks

    Hi again, Cascadien,

    As for as I know the bezel of the GWM5600 is not compatible with the others in the 5600 range, with the exception of the also new GLX5600 G-Lide. Both use the same bezel.

    DW5600 (up) / GWM5600 (below) - No dice:




    G5600 (up) / GWM5600 (below) - No dice:




    GW5600 (up) / GWM5600 (below) - No dice:




    GLX5600 (up) / GWM5600 (below) - Perfect match!




    As for the strap, the GWM5600 uses the same strap as the DW5600, so any strap for this last model will do.

    Also the DW-5600CL-1JF has strap adapters and strap that fits the M5600, see below, so if you want to put on a different sort of strap

    Hey Vintage great photos. I had no idea the GWM was so much smaller than the other 5600 models. Is it noticeably smaller when you are wearing it??? (OR is it just the pics that make it look smaller???)

    @ GurdyGurds,

    Thanks!

    It is not so noticeable, I think; but let's say that if you're into 5600s a lot, as I am, you do feel that difference to the small side when you wear the GWM5600. And I like that, actually.

    @ Cascadien,

    You're welcome.

    Re: What parts if any...

    Will the bezel and strap from either the DW5025D-8 or DW5025B-7V fit on a standard DW5600E?

    M-T minds are curious..

    Yes.

    All current DW5025 special editions, are, for practical purposes, DW5600Es (less the screwback, of course).

    Edit: DougFNJ made a DW5025 Ocean Gray mod; he put a DW5600E regular black resin bezel on it.

    Mike, that's an outstanding mod. I've said it and I say it again.

    Thanks, Vintage!

    I see some new DW5025 parts in my future...
