    Thanks, Gary. I currently have three: this one, the navy blue and yellow 5610, and the black 5600MS with the purple lettering. These squares look great and are much more manageable during the week.

    New? Yup
    Shiny? Thanks to that Bezel, Yup

    I fell in love with the GWN-Q as soon as I wrapped it around my wrist.
    That love relegated the, once loved, Navy GWN to the watch box, permanently.
    Sold the GWN and got the Navy GWN-Q.
    The love affair starts again.

    Pity this didn't arrive yesterday LOL!...

    Picked up 3 from Yahoo Japan auctions. All 3 have been on my G-Shock wishlist which is nearing completion.

    First is the fox fire DW-5600E. Initial inspection out of the parcel shows this as possibly never worn. Bezel and band are immaculate. Made in Thailand caseback. Dead on arrival, new battery brought to life all functions. Pushers are perfect. Old 1545 module blue hue EL. Put the band and buckle in the ultrasonic cleaner. Ready to wear.



    Second is the fox fire DW-5600EG. This one will receive a new band and bezel already en route from PacParts. Crystal has one small chip on the right side. Sandpaper and cerium oxide hand polishing should rectify that just fine. Caseback is made in Korea. All functions good to go right out of the box.



    Finally the grail piece. DW-5000-1JF.
    Ever since I built my DW-5030, I have been looking for one of these. Found this one for a steal. Crystal is perfect. Caseback has some scratches only around the edges. All functions G2G. Blue EL.



    Have a few things to do to get it ready for wear. Bezel screws need to come out. Upgrade the LCD. New band and bezel. Sand and polish the caseback edges or just leave it?

    I've had a couple, but the latest was a bid I didn't think I'd win.

    GW-M5630D carbon fiber. Just the watch, and definitely worn. Some scuffing on the glossy parts, and a definite line where the band touched the skin. Some weird discoloration to the keeper, wonder if the guy got bug spray on it.

    Also got a riseman and a Mudman DC, in case I hadn't already posted.

    I like the EG but I've always liked it's later cousin the EGP a tiny bit more. I'd like one or the other someday.

    What do you plan on doing with the 5000 LCD? Caseback looks pretty good to me as is, but I'm not that picky about my casebacks.

    Any other squares on your wishlist?

    Picked this up on Rakuten and arrived this week.

    I have wanted a DW-D5600P-1JF for some time now. Really pleased with the clarity of the display and very subtle looks.

    Noticed this vintage MRG 210TZ3 and grabbed it for $140. Original price was listed at 57,000YEN. The MRG line was sorta the higher end, better built G Shock line.

    I am not familiar with the EGP. Is it different than the EG?
    That fox fire 5600EG is my only square with gold accents, except for the gold caseback of the GW-5035A. So I am excited to have it in the collection.

    The DW-5000-1JF will receive the same LCD that came stock with the DW-5030. It is no longer available as a standalone part, but can be recovered from a current production DW-5600M series. I have one ready for the 5000.

    To answer your question about my wishlist, the short answer is maybe the GB-5600AA. Not interested in the bluetooth functionality, just like the aesthetics of it. Passively on the hunt for a bargain opportunity.

    It actually is almost identical except for the the '1999' backlight, and it came as a set with a G pen :)
