I wonder what happened the models that came between the DW5600 and DW6900 (with exception of the DW6600). It seems like those three are the only models that survived, so to speak. I've seen pictures of the 5900, 6000, and 6100, and they all looked kind of similar. They weren't bad. I wouldn't mind seeing them again.

Was there a different model for each number in between?

Hmm...here goes:

dw-1983-10th anniversary of dw-5000 ~1993
dw-5000-like 5600...actually the inspiration for it ~1983
dw-5200-like 5600, except older.~1984
dw-5300-thick version of 5600~1994
dw-5400-round version of 5600 (like 5700 actually, but more rare)~1985
dw-5500-g-shock II/ original mudman/ very, very rare.~1985
dw-5600-well you know this one~1987 and on...
dw-5700-round version of 5600- relatively current, at least up to early 2000
dw-5800-5600 with face protector/bumper (very rare)
dw-5900-the cowl like ugly one
dw-6000-original dual timer
dw-6100-temp sensor
dw-6200-rally timer-->g-9000 is derived from it/ cool model
dw-6300-original frogman
dw-6400-even more thick/chunky derivative of 5600
dw-6500-first "skyforce" alti/baro
dw-6600-million variations
dw-6700-second "skyforce" alti/baro/temp
dw-6800-like dw-5300 (thicker version)
dw-6900-million and one variations
From there, it oddly goes to dw-8000 and up. Not sure why they skipped 7000:think: .

Hi Lenny,

Exelent list. Just a little to add,

WW-5100, first low temperature resist G-Shock model (WW = Wide Temperature Range Watch)
WW-5300, Another Wide Temperature range model

The DW-5300 is a bit strange number. They probably thought hat they had a space over in the DW range, so Casio made the DW-5300 in 1994. Somehow they didn't use DW-5100.


(WW-5100, not mine but from a friend)

Cheers,

Sjors

Ach! I forgot about that one. Thanks for remembering, Sjors.
