    White G - 5600GLX, 5600a-7, or 6900a-7?

    New G-Shock owner here.

    I recently bought a DW-5600 as a casual beater watch, and I absolutely love it. It's my first G-Shock. Now, I'm looking to expand my collection and I want to include a white G-Shock. I'm having a hard time deciding between these three models. I absolutely love the "timeless digital" look of the 5600. My natural instinct is to go with the 5600a-7, but they don't seem to be readily available just based on a quick google search. I like the 5600GLX, but I'm not sure how I feel about the glossy look and the surf-board decals on the band. I also have have no use for tide or moonphase graphs. Just how glossy is the finish, and how pronounced are the decals? However, the glossy finish apparently holds up better than the standard resin. I also have taken a liking to the 6900a-7 and EW models (green), but I'm still not sure whether or not I like the "eyes" on the 6900 models. They also seem to be quite a bit bigger than the 5600.

    Which of these 3 models would you choose?

    Does anyone know of any place to acquire a new 5600a-7 that isn't eBay?

    Thanks guys. Looking forward to starting a G collection!

    Amazon.com has all of those models available for sale.

    My personal preference would be the 6900, but it's just that... personal preference.

    Personally I'd choose the 5600A-7 closely followed by the 6900A-7. I already have a 6900EW-7 so my 'white 6900' quota is filled (for now).

    I don't really like the G-Lides that have the tribal/pinstripe type pattern so that doesn't make the cut.

    Welcome, 35th_shields!
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...
