    By hook or by crook it's going in a casio casing/bezel though. X'D

    Well, it's not brand new, but it's new to me... and it's shiny!









    This was a 20th Anniversary collaboration with CASIO and BEAMS. BEAMS is a well known department store chain in the Japanese market. Their name, "BEAMS" fits perfectly in the little G-Shock "SHOCK RESIST" badge logo. The model is a DW-5700, which is 100% compatible with 5600 bezels. The original bezel would be black, but I'm planning on getting a white one to take its place. I think it'll be a nice match, white bezel alongside a white dial and contrasting black strap. The strap is similar to GW-5000 quality, being more pliable than your typical DW-5600 black resin strap. I would prefer to put on a translucent or clear bezel to show off the polished case, but alas CASIO has made them unobtainable.

    FINALLY! My second G-Shock has arrived! The carbon fiber beauty, GW-S5600B-1JF. Was it easy to find? Try searching for that model number in every search engine and you'll get "you meant the POSITIVE display right?" kind of results. I searched for a WUS sale of this watch all summer and couldn't find any. I was desperate enough to make my first Japanese auction house purchase (I used FromJapan) and crossed my fingers hoping I wouldn't get burned. I spent A WEEK trying to get my package from USPS because of their awful service. I finally opened the shipping box and hoped I didn't find a "G-Shack" or some rip-off. Instead, I get this beauty..........

    1. I was not expecting a lenticular printed design of the carbon fiber band. I don't know if this is normal for carbon fiber to create such an effect. I certainly see a little of that in my carbon fiber watch box and a carbon fiber phone case I used to have. However, a glossy outer layer like on this band really makes the carbon fiber pop to life! It just looks...........expensive!
    2. My only critique of this watch is that I wish the bezel was also carbon fiber. I would've accepted a slightly higher price for it.
    3. I don't know if you can tell from these pictures, but the buttons are black. It's rare to have a square G-Shock with non-silver buttons. Perhaps my 3rd and final G-Shock should be the transparent DW-5025D for its gold buttons.
    4. DON'T WORRY GUYS, I will not modify this carbon fiber model at all. However, I can't say the same for my future DW-5025D which could use a matching yellow LCD. :P
