    It's a nice watch, great to wear and gets lots of attention. It is very large however and may not be suitable for all wrists. My wrists in the above pic measure 7.25" and it still looks huge. My 6900BC looks way better proportioned however:

    Where did you get the replacement case, if I may ask?

    I'll post a picture of my 5600 later once I get my hands on a camera. It's in need of a new crystal, and I'd like to get a different colored band to spice it up but I may just keep it as a 'work watch' and buy another G for casual wear.

    I wish I could get one that looked like a GWX5600B-7 without the tide/moon graphs, that would be sweet. Or a red-cased 5600 with solar/atomic functionality.

    One warning! The spring bars in the bracelet links are NOT easily adjusted. You need the small fork on a Bergeon tool. A screwdriver is not a good idea with these bars. And be sure you reinsert them properly - they're directional, with flanges on only one side of the bar. And while the IP coating is pretty hard, it would be wise to use tape to mask the outside of the links before removing the pins.

    The second and minute hands align with the indexes extremely well for a quartz watch - if yours do not, send it back. They self-align every hour (that's a "tough movement" feature).

    (I wonder if there's a reason two attorneys like this particular watch...)

    Huh, two attorneys, one watch. Odd!
    Glad I read your post before adjusting the band or I would have felt like a dummy. I actually had really good luck with the eyeglass screwdriver from my SAK for popping the pins in and out.

    I have been using a G shock for years. Every day

    MRG-910A

    I can find them on base for a good price but not the want.

    I think solar is the way to go in my opinion...

    Been looking at some tritium watches too but I think I will go with a Gshock 1st.
