most LEs only use the basic module. this one youre also paying for the carbon core upgrade and extra hardware which in itself is prob worth $100-150+ (no prices on pacparts yet, tho if its anything like the band bundle kit of the ga2000, parts will be restricted as well)I really love the look of this watch and that you get get a total of three straps and two bezels.
I want to get one because I don't own a square yet and love the circuit board theme but cannot justify the price for such a basic module.
I have had my eye on several squares such as the GW-5000-1JF, GWS-5600-1Jf, and the GWM-5610-1 which are all packed with the features I love in a G-Shock and need to make a choice since one of these will be a Christmas present from my wife! 😉
What would be your choice for a first G-Shock square as an avid G-Shock collector?
those 3 are all basically cosmetic variations of the same watch so its more a matter of what you like look at most.
i agree with dxnnis tho, the 5k is probably the winner, all square lovers eventually get one. even non square lovers like me can only resist them for so long haha 😜. if you can afford it, then go for it, save yourself time and unnecessary yearning. if not, the 5610 is good bang for buck and continues to prove itself as a solid beater.
