They (G-Central) claim function vise 5000=5600 despite different modules
There are few people on the forum who own 5600 and i not sure about having both. Hope they sound their opinion.
New Rangeman is appealing but the display is negative. Right now between GW-B5600BC-1JF and GMW-B5000G-1JF, due in April. Any reason to prefer one over the other?
Thanks! Oh, wow, how did I miss that?? That looks like the long-awaited re-do of the GW5K, except with a metal bezel. Larger buttons, BT, and I’m sure the STN display. That one could be pretty awesome!!! :-!
Thanks, Tommy. Maybe by bumping that thread, i will get more advice.ronalddheld, to answer your original question, I echo what others have said. Deciding between a resin bezel with combi-bracelet square and a metal screwback square depends on your preferences regarding material (resin versus metal), weight, intended use, color, etc.
I have the GW-B5600BC-1B (negative display) and I also have a modded GMW-B5000D-1 (positive display). I like them both, but for different reasons and uses. The GW-B5600 is utilitarian and performs well as a daily wearer. So could the GMW-B5000, depending on how one defines an everyday watch. I prefer wearing the GMW-B5000 when the feeling of a more premium G-SHOCK is desired. To each their own on this topic.
The GMW-B5000G-1 could be what you are looking for if you prefer a resin band and don't mind a metal bezel.
That model and the GMW-B5000G-2 certainly have piqued my interest. Thank you for sharing the kakakumag link about the upcoming G-SHOCK releases. I will bump the GMW-B5000 models availability thread to hopefully garner some interest and discussion about these two models.
To answer your follow-up question regarding the module functionality between the GW-B5600's and GMW-B5000's, it is exactly the same. Both perform in the same manner.
Where did you get that?? The previous poster mentioned that the new GRAVITYMASTER will likely have sapphire. That is not unusual for the high-end Aviation-style Gs.the GMW-B5000G will have a Sapphire crystal?

I recently ordered GW-B5600BC-1BJF (negative display version), but before I did I contacted one of our resident Square experts who owns it along with GW-B5000. He said he doesn't believe B5600 really has a super twisted display, no matter what Casio says. I ordered it anyway because I like negative displays, and I don't have a square with a bracelet yet. It's listed as weighing 85 grams, I assume that is prior to sizing so after I remove three links, it should be under 80g. It's "Made (assembled) in China," with a caseback that is attached with four screws.
