I have this gw 5000u and this is the almost perfect g-shock for me. I miss the old backlight though and this watch is on the heavy side compare to the other sqares. So if casio would make this model in titanium casing I'd be the first to buy it.

So help me out. And I hope a million people haven’t already asked this:

Why do people refer to this as the “speed” line or speed editions or whatever?

What exactly differentiates these releases from a respective original non-U model in new condition ?


Note: The above post was submitted 2 drinks in.
Ohter upgrades- Titanium case back, buttons buckle and screws, carbon fiber band.

It's also funny that I have thought the "paper scratching resin thing" lol. I mean it could truly. There is wearing a watch and there is buying a model for collection.

Also--- the rant about G-SHOCK owners wasn't mean derogatorily against anyone. "We all love the damn things" isn't that enough?!" Lol.
G shock resin is like the tires on a car. It does its job by gradually wearing out. With hard daily use, resin might last a few years, maybe ten, but resin isn’t forever and that’s fine.
