    Whats the point?

    Hi,

    On the DW5600's that I saw, there is always a very little whitish point or circle just under the 'N' of the text CHRONO. It is an o and sometimes has a _ underneath.

    Anyone know what it is about?

    Hi Hanzemannetje,

    It's been asked quiet a while before. It seems to be present on a lot of other models, I believe of the DW-6900 series. Maybe it's a mark for a plant or a lot. BTW, where are you from (probably asked before, but I'm just back frmo a vacation and not much on-line lately)

    Cheers,

    Sjors

    I also spotted some types with -0-, _o_ o
    and just o. Strange that they would put a mark for a plant or a lot on the front of the watch though...

    I am from Holland by the way... net als jij geloof ik?

    Re: Whats the point?

    Well, Zeeland, that's kind of Holland too, sort of... just kidding... :)

    I am (or was?) not really into G-shocks, I am more into vintage LED watches, but I needed a new practical watch recently that could take some abuse because LED watches are pretty fragile and not waterresistant, so I bought a Casio DW-5600E. I liked it so much that now I also bought a second dw-5600 (different colour) and ordered a G-5600RB 1JF Black Spots too.

    In the future I will most likely buy some more limited 5600's from Japan if I get the chance... and have the budget...

    I looked on Yahoo Japan and some pretty obscure limited 5600's are offered there, but unfortunately I do not read Japanese, so ordering them is somewhat of a problem (if the seller would ship to Europe anyway).

    Are there people here who can post pics of exotic 5600's?

    Hi Hanzeman,

    I missed your post I see... Have you ever checked this site? I also like geek watches and LED watches, although they are just not practical for me. Guy actually has two of my LED watches (not vintage) on his website. At that time I only had G-Shock's on my website. I have now a little corner where mine can be found too.

    For new DW/G/GW-5600 models check monthly the new JP releases at www.g-shock.jp.

    Cheers,

    Sjors

    Hi,

    Yeah I know that site.
    Prices have gone mad for LED watches since I started to get interested in them. Ten years ago I bought myself a nice collection. I do not buy them anymore. Now they are overpriced. Too bad I cannot wear my LED'S a lot, cause I am too afraid they'll die out on me as has happened in the past.

    My 5600 I can wear, abuse and I jus like them a lot..
