    Question What is this screw hole for on my 5600 ?

    Is it for some special purpose that I didn't know ?

    There are in total 6 screw holes around the case but as far as I know it takes only 4 holes to install the bezel.

    Maybe this case in particular was initially intended to be used in more then one model.

    I think Luciano is right. Maybe CASIO has been a little more forward thinking and is making some parts multi-purposed for various models. Lvt, is this a newly acquired 5600? It looks like the casing has been redesigned, and not in a good way. Looks like plenty of crevices to trap debris. I don't see this on my older DW-5600E and GW-M5600BC.

    Which 5600 model is that? Is it only a tough solar model or is it both atomic "and" tough solar?

    I own the GWM5610-1 atomic solar model. Does the watch case on my GWM5610-1 look exactly just like the one in the picture above or does it have the same exact case like the DW5600E? Does anybody in here know?

    I think that the older model GWM5600 had the same exact case like the DW5600E, but I think that the newer GWM5610-1 has a different watch case. Does anybody have pictures of the GWM5610-1 watch case naked without its resin on it?

    Maybe they were intend to have extra screws to secure left and right side resin intact like GW-9000 but later found it is not necessary.

    Interesting discovery!

    This I have never seen before so it could be an indication that a new model with the same case but different bezel is in the works. Or perhaps a model with a different case and module, who knows perhaps it is a sensor hole or a hole for a push button. Does not look like a regular screw hole tough!

    AFAIK the 5600KG/5610KG/5600NV/5610NV are fairly new, they might have this same resin case.

    They are true and genuine holes for screws with threads, there is another one on the opposite size :P
