Nice, can you explain what you did?

I like the zulu strap on it.

That is the same watch I have (and love) and thought that the adapters wouldn't fit it? Maybe you had a hard time installing them because they don't fit perfectly? I"m really curious about this!

Nice work, but if you look.

The GW5600J isn't list on the sizes the adapters will fit on the watch.

So, it was a P.I.A. because it is not the right size.

Also, from what I read over the years on this board.

No manufacturers make adapters for the GW5600J.

They were hard to fit on the watch because they aren't meant for the watch.

Good to know.

I guess I am a lucky guy. Thanks for letting me know.

I still think it looks cool.

I am tempted to try it myself, just as long as it doesn't take away the G-Shock toughness from the watch with equipment not meant for the watch.

Just laid my hands on a GW5600J myself - absolute beaut - but as stated by the TS, County Comm's adapters don't work well with this model.

Doing some Googling, discovered the following thread on strap adapters and the reasons for the problems
http://forums.watchuseek.com/showthread.php?t=110211 (see posts 7 -13)

Now my question is: According to http://mygshock.com/wiki/Bands_and_Strap_Adapters, the following sites provide adapters - but which is the best for the GW5600?

http://www.countycomm.com/adapter.htm (ruled out - PIA ;-))
http://www.broadarrow.net/maratac.htm
http://www.westcoastime.com/gshocadcasfo.html

Could any G-WIS weigh in with opinions on this issue? |> :thanks
