    i suspected this....
    thanks a lot..
    Does the case-back-plate g-shocks have less Water resistance than a screw back case model?
    Maybe am i right?

    If screwed caseback will be more water resistant...
    what model can you suggest me in
    order to find a watch similar to the referee
    in dimension?
    I think i can find it only on the bay...
    right?

    Re: What's the actual G-shock with screw back case??

    will the referee are as the 5600 case and really the first g-shock was same type of case but with 240 module and same case thru dw-5800 but only two was in round bezel as dw-5400(1985) and dw-5700(1987) and still as same case and now are g-5600 and gw-5600 and dw-5600e and now as gw-m5600 is the newer ones and yes you will find them on ebay and that's how i got my collection and screw type are more protection on water resist then 4 screw type i think cause i had water in my old ts-100 and water got in the watch so i had to take the watch apart to dry it and then put it back together and it was an 4 screw type.

    thanks a lot indeed guys......


    but what about the WR of the two type of watch....?
    Does the screw back case is much more WR than the case-back-plate one?
    Or not?

    Re: What's the actual G-shock with screw back case??

    Yes, i know...
    But....
    the first one for me it's the best water resistant between the two kind of case back tighteen system....
    And for you?
    Am i right or maybe the 4 screw case back tighteen system it is more powerful than the screwback case?

    dunno..

    Re: What's the actual G-shock with screw back case??

    I think the general consensus is that water resistance is pretty similar between the two - it doesn't really matter.
    A lot of dive computers have a 4-screw back, and those are actually designed for working underwater, so I don't think you can say that that system is less water resistant on a watch.

    However, having said that, I would put my money on a screwback if it came to 'tough tests' that included hitting the watch from the underside as well as the top - I think they're stronger.

    Re: What's the actual G-shock with screw back case??

    I'm wearing the dw-5200 g-shock 1984 watch and it's an screw type and it's medal to medal but on four screw it's an steel back with plastic case and plastic screws goove and those get stripe easy and the four screw way is ok but if that rubber way groove is not there and then it will get wet and it's timex way i think cause they started on four screw way and now i got an ironman and it's an screw type by medal to medal way.
