    Will a GW-M5600 bezel fit a GWX-5600 G-Lide watch?

    Not a big fan of the white color and like the idea of a negative display 5600 with moon and tide info and would prefer a plain black bezel and plain black resin strap. Is the GWX-5600 and GW-M5600 compatible bezel wise? They look to be the same dimensions.



    Want to swap this bezel from say a GW-M5600/5610BC

    According to the 5x00 chart in this thread, it won't fit.

    Chart cannot be accurate as a GW-5000 bezel will not fit a GW-M5600 according to that chart and that is not true as the GW-5000 and GW-M5600 are interchangeable and the GWX5600 looks to be exactly the same as well.

    Are you sure the gw-m5600 bezel fits the gw-5000? I thought it did not. The chart looks correct to me.

    Pretty sure everything I;ve read is that the GW5000 and GW-M5600 are interchangeable. I forget if it was you or Sedi that even mentioned the modules are the same except for a special adhesive ring in the GW5000

    Module doesn't matter. When you look at the bezel fit, it's the case's (not module's) outer dimensions that matter. The GW-5000 takes the same size bezel as the DW-5600E and DW-5000 reissues. I am pretty sure it is different from the GW-M5600.

    Also on the chart it shows the GLX and GWX models as different and they are the same watch except GLX is the non-atomic version of the GWX. I'm not convinced they are all different bezels. Casio wouldn't go out of their way to have to retool their factory to make all these non standard bezels that only fit 1 or 2 models It's in their best interest to have more models use the same bezels.

    In that case, buy the bezel and prove us wrong then

    I just bought the GWX5600 so I will find out once I get it. I'll be pissed if I am stuck with the white bezel and nothing else will fit it.

    according to my "google" research:

    GWX5600 case size: 48.9 x 42.8 x 13.4mm

    GWM5600 case size: 46.7x43.2x12.7m
