I have wanted a screw-back square for a while. With that in mind, look what arrived from Lithuania today.





















Sitting next to a Mondaine Giant.

Best of it is; it was undersold. He said it is worn and marked etc. Unless he ecamined it with a microscope it is as good as new.

What do you all think?

Nice catch! My impression or does it have the same rubbery strap of the GW-5000?

It feels very flexible and soft (as has been remarked of that strap before). I think you are right...

No, it is more like the DW-5600E strap. It is definitely not the same as the GW-5000, unless this watch is modded. Since the letters have been stealthed, it may very well have been modded in other ways, such as not having the original strap.

When I had a Spike Lee, I remember the strap being like a DW-5600E, but it seemed to be a little different, too. The writing was VERY white, and the band and bezel seemed a little shinier than the normal DW-5600E resin. So maybe the Spike Lee resin is actually unique to that watch. You can put DW-5600E resin or GW-5000 resin on it if you like. That is the beauty of the modern screwbacks.

Thanks very much for that little piece of advice

Can anyone tell me (or better still link me) to the proper band a bezel for this model, please?

The SL resin is unique, but size is compatible with the other watches mentioned. I doubt you can buy the original anymore. I recommend Gw5000 band with whatever bezel has the lettering you like. Gw5000 bezel has significantly muted letters compared to the SL.
