Is it only the looks?

They retain the legendary shape of the very first G-Shock, so they have a certain heritage /nostalgia feel. 5600s are unabashedly 1980-esque with that octa-square shape and no-frills LCD - and that's what makes them unique. Also, they are the smallest among Gs, just as tough and can be worn under a shirt cuff. 5600s have the best value for money (limited editions excluded and so is THE GW5000)

Thank you, very good indeed. So in that case, which one would be the best for future reservation?

As you look around, you'd discover that there are a gazillion variants of the seemingly simple square 5600 - basic models, limited color variants, solar powered variants, radio controlled variants, tidegraph variants, Bluetooth variants. Prices vary from $40 for the most basic DW5600E to $300 for the steel-cased, DLC screwback GW5000.

Whike the basic DW5600E is an easy recommendation, I'd suggest you to look around and see if you like anything specific. Also, you'd need to take a call on whether you want additional features or if you want a different colourway.

There are so many 5600 variation, but they are all square :)

But if you mean the old school DW5600C, then its different.

It looks *slightly* different, it feels different (with the SS core case and it feels solidly built), it sounds different (the alarm actually sounds different), it works different (dual time, reminder feature, mini light bulb)

It's called teaching an old horse new tricks. :-d And I don't think the Bluetooth G-Shocks sell too well for Casio.
