Isn't this such a pointless question? People choose to buy whatever they like, why should that be an issue at all? That's like asking, why do people buy a red car instrad of a black car - just nothing, really. Personal preferences.
Dunno... I see it as buying a black Delorean...

Wouldn't the DW-5600E be even more retro? Solar and atomic sync are hardly retro features to have. And amongst the solar atomic models, wouldn't the GW-5000 be more retro with its screwback harking back to the original Gs? Either way, it is good to have varieties giving us more choices and more watches to buy

Rostislav, I agree with most of the comments concerning personal preference. There are many reasons why someone might buy the 'non-retro' version. For me, it comes down to color. The retro version is quite colorful. I find the color a little distracting and prefer a look that is more low key. We all buy things for different reasons -- historical authenticity is a driver for some; the actual look of the watch is more important to others. It's all good -- to each his own.

Though this was not your intention Rostislav, your post got me wondering how many different versions of the GW-M5610 are available. Anyone aware of color combinations other than those already mentioned? I see a lot of modded 5610's out there but are there any standard resin options other than black or display options other than 'retro' with its multicolor display or the GW-M5610R-1JF with red/orange lettering?

There is also one with blue lettering and display tint: GW-M5610BA-1JF.

Incredible variety. Finding some of these can be a challenge though. My 'dream' 5610 would have an olive/army green resin case and band with a positive display -- surprised this isn't more broadly available. Probably best to just buy the resin and band and swap them onto another 5610, as some of you have suggested in the past.
