    Thanks Andrew, I like the fact that the S5600 and 5000 share the same module but the S5600 is so light you can forget it's on your wrist.

    Yes, very good point. I have owned one a couple of times, and you have to love the carbon fibre strap.
    The only similar watch that I presently have is the classic GW-M5610.

    I had a 5610 previously but that red line put me off, which is silly but just the way it is. :) I did some modding with it and the negative display version some years back to create a "poor man's" GW-5000 - on the left below, and compared to the real thing in the middle. The resultant negative GWM-5610 sold on eBay quickly.

    I really like that - even though it may be a bit bright for me and I wouldn't use the ABC features. It's still impressive and who doesn't like jelly. :)

    Thank you. Yes it is bright, but it’s really nice in person. The LCD display is also two tone as well, so pretty cool.

    Stock pic shows it much better than my crappy pics!

    I love this. Owned the same one twice!
    If this came via SC, it is quite possibly the same watch?

    My shot is rubbish but there are many good YouTube clips and shots all over the net.

    I ordered mine from a Japanese eBay shop run by ioomobile - £155 by PP. Very good seller, fast delivery and helpful customs description. ;)

    Here's a slightly cheesy YouTube clip but it's factual.



    EDIT: the ebay seller is actually in Honkers!

    I keep looking at these and thinking 'is there a better daily watch'?

    It just looks too nice to be a 'beater' though

    Use it as intended and treat it to a new bezel for £15 every few years

    G-9000 mudman on Jays & Kays adapters and nylon strap (perfect fit)

    And GW-056BJ with the USA/Japan module, so it won’t synch with the atomic clock in Europe, but hey that’s life!

    Very nice indeed and you now have a great watch to take to Holland on Koningsdag - the King's birthday - when drinking and wearing orange things are compulsory.

    Anyone any experience of this G-Shock, GD100 MS? I like the tactical look and red/orange back lighting. Has all the usual functions of the models in its price range - currently going for about £62 on Amazon. Can't find any decent reviews though.

    Following on from my last post, shortly after I posted it I had to collect something from Argos and they had the model in the display cabinet - albeit for £20 more than Amazon. Have to say it looked nice, but bloody enormous. Not sure if it would be too big for my somewhat slender 6.5" wrist! I should've asked to try it on but was in a rush. Next time I'm passing I will.
