    Would you buy a GWM-B5000.....

    .....When you already have a GW-M5610?

    I love my GW-M5610 with the added combi bracelet and it has been on my wrist daily since the day I bought it around 3 weeks ago.

    I always liked the full metal square and I still look at it from time to time and I am tempted. I’m just wondering if it’s a case that I want it because I don’t have it and if I had it I’d not really be gaining much over what I already have?

    Yes it’s a different look being all stainless steel and I guess that’s part of the attraction. However apart from the connected app and Bluetooth there’s no difference in functionality and I’m not sure if they would clash for wrist time rather than complement each other.

    Got both.

    The Steel version is an upgraded movement with several additions, including having current time displayed simultaneously with timer mode, very useful to me.

    Does it display world time at the same time as local time?

    I can't see them competing for wrist time (although that also depends how your wear your watches and how many you have in total) - IMO they wear very differently in terms of weight, looks, dressiness and how careful you will be whilst wearing them.

    It does when you're on the WT (and other) screens, yes. On the home time screen it shows the date.

    Now that could be a game changer.

    Yep, already did but have some modifications stuff in mind for it. I don't collect MR-G's or limited Frogman's so I don't mind spending a bit on the latest and great square. :)

    You can also change the date format so it suits us in Europe.
    You can set regular reminders.
    I have both, they get used for different occasions.
