Having pulled the trigger on the Rangeman & GW-S5600 at the same time (months back), I know was feeling flush, Rangeman been enjoying for months, beast and barely been off the wrist until my Breitling Superocean came back from the "spa" (full refurb and service), I digress, anyways after numerous emails back and forth, orders cancelled, failure to ship, stock depleted etc etc it's finally shipped and enroute.
POST PICS guys if you've got, to keep my anticipation up. And how many of said GW-S5600 are about? Many in the UK??? Do like having the Rarer ones for the UK, had a few comments about Carbon Fibre strapped Mudman & Rangeman including a very interested Jeweller who insisted on having a detailed examination of my Rangeman J against his 1ER, quite funny.

Keep my anticipation up guys in the meantime, pics will follow for sure in due course, currently only just left Osaka 馃榿馃榿馃榿

Hi,it's a very good choice since it's the lightest gshock ever made,the first under 50 gr!The watchstore in Osaka has the better price on the moment.Here are my pics ...

Great pics DELORTO exactly what I've been needing to keep me in eager anticipation, so I should notice a difference in weight between say my Rangeman and when this arrives

The weigh difference is double,93g(Rangeman) to 47g(GW-S5600)! It's a very low profile watch, which can easily hide under the sleeve, so i can wear it in professional attire.I like the adventury G shocks very much but if someone works in an office environment, obliged to wear a suit a tie etc,it's kinda funny to have a King or a Frogman on the wrist...He'll face comments like "hello fisherman" or "what's this bomb on your wrist?" So all the 5600 models are very suitable for me,especially this cutting edge GW-S 5600!I remember myself ,back in 1983,buying the dw5000 later the dw5600c and many others so i appreciate step by step the evolution of the range...

On the caseback you'll see a serial number,if the last letter is "c" then it's a 2013 model if it's a "j" it's a 2010 model...
Will have a look and see when it arrives I'm hoping by end of week maybe
