    Whats sitting on my doorstep? A GX-56?!!!!

    Hello folks,

    Im happy to report a brand new arrival today, the GX-56 monster 5600:





    OK, lets take a look at it:
    Its the solar only version shown on the german Casio site for some weeks.
    The module software version is 3179 / 3.10.
    So its a close relative to the G-6900 module.

    There is one special feature on this module, the second time zone display in the time display mode, triggered by pressing the adjust button shortly:



    The watch is very large, a GW-M5600 looks toyish beside it:





    The buttons are covered like the mudman buttons, but are easier to


    The strap is about 22mm, the buckle has a very unusual design, looking expensive:


    The internal shock absorbers have some nice depth, giving a feeling of real protection:


    So, what else can i say?
    Its an impressive piece of resin!
    Im sorry about the crappy pictures, no daylight available anymore today!

    After SOOOOOOO long waiting is finally here.
    looks very good, but
    I think all who intend to buy this should put on 10kg to make the size of watch normal to your wrist . Congratulations. Waiting anxiously for pictures from the orange color.:thanks

    Thank you for posting this Your photos are excellent, the macro shots got the details in there very well.....please post more, I particularly appreciate the comparison to the 5600. All I keep thinking everytime I see it is #1 this is going to sell VERY well, and #2 that this thing is MADE to take a beating.

    Would love to see a few wrist shots if you can. Awesome looking watch but it looks massive! I don't think that my 7' wrist could pull this one off but if wearing them on ankles was in style then I would get in line for one.

    Congrats, it is one tough looking G.

    Very nice watch. I like that you added the wrist shots. I think this watch SCREAMS "Don't mess with me!"

    Well - that's an impressive looking watch for sure. It has a nice clean design feel to it with the minimal bezel ornementation highlighting the orange shock absorber - I like it.

    A lot of watch for a regular sized display - maybe an opportunity lost by Casio?

    Not one for me though as I am not a fan of the over-large look.

    Enjoy your beast!
