Honestly,the best watch I own. I've learned to use it for it's intended use,Gshock use. I wear it while I work on my bikes,moving stuff around and travels. It's my winter watch tho,can't stand much it's weight in summer. I love it,seems it's getting very hard to find,I'm glad I've got myself covered with 2 bezels and one strap. Of course I take good care of it, I regularly apply some specific product to keep the resin soft and moist.
Post yours fellas,and share the love |>

Yes, it's a great watch. I would say it's perfect except that the buttons are a little hard to press. I have myself covered as far as spare parts too, but I am missing a spare crystal (they are discontinued, and you have to buy the whole case (which is expensive) to get the crystal).

Yes indeed it's a fantastic G, tough and low profile. I'm just going to take a ride on this thread, please i don't mean to hijack it but also don't thingk it would be necessary to atart another just for this question. Wore mine yesterday to the beach, it was fully charged as ever (i live in Rio deJaneiro - Brazil, sun is not a problem here). The moment i arrived i checked the time and my gw5000 was blank! He stopped. No the power saving was not activated and even if it was i don't think that the sun would allow it to turn off the watch. Was simply terrified, so i pressed the receiving button and it came back alive. Been wearing it since yesterday and it did not happened again. But i didn't like it. What would have caused it?

That would be my worst nightmare. I have my GW5600 crystal well beaten up but for 50 Euro I can buy the whole new watch,I don't even wanna think about scratching the crystal on this one...scary

There's always polishing (though it can be a pain in the neck if the scratches are deep) or the option of substituting a crystal from another square solar (many are the same size)

Another vote for the composite bracelet:



Very comfortable. ;-)
How is that bracelet put together, pins or screws and if pins, how much of a pain is it to size?

Also, are there micro adjustments on the clasp?

Agree that it looks great on that watch!

Each link is held on the bracelet with a small spring bar, just like the ones used at the lugs of most watches only smaller.

There are four micro adjust holes on the pushbutton release clasp. You can see it more clearly in this photo of the same bracelet on my GW-6900:

I have the combi bracelet but haven't put it on the 5000 yet. I have had that bracelet before and it is amazing!
