My GW-M5625 came in today, very fast from CA especially considering that it was sent 1st class.

Initial Impressions

1. The display/face looks great. There is gold/purple/white/black...a very "rich" looking face when compared to my 5600J.

2. The opaque white.... May not be a daily wearer but that's fine, I'll like the Rising white more. In certain situations it's nearly clear where you just see skin under it.

3. The 3063 module is one of the latest and greatest to go in the 5*00 series G's.

4. The resin seems a bit more "pliable" than others making for a comfortable feel.

5. No complaints besides the opaque white isn't as nice as I was hoping..perhaps stick it in a M5600 bezel/strap?? But aren't they back ordered anyway??

Hey bud, the 5525 is a bit different.

The display is a bit more clear on the 5625 and the solar cells appear more purple than black on the 5625 and with the gold going around it looks really good.

Well, if I were to put this in another strap/bezel I'd keep the original in a box somewhere safe to try and prevent discoloration.

Looks good, I like the gold case back. And the clear straps don't really bother me as much I think they do you. I kind of like them.

Where's the purple you mentioned on the display?

Hey Ben, the strap is OK but I thought it'd have more of a marbled look to them. The purple is the solar cells. They appear more purple than black as on the 5525 I have. You can see it a little bit in the 1st and last picture. It isn't pronounced but when light hits it, it appears purple.

Very nice Nick. Another one that you'll hardly notice is on the wrist.

Nice, nice. Either way, I think the watch looks great - I've actually been shopping for a white/clear G-Shock.
