Basic, Simple, Tough
on March 9, 2014
This G-Shock the Casio DW5600E is a fantastic watch. I wore mine for 7 years then passed it on to my son. At year 8 the battery finally died and I replaced it. I found a short video on You Tube for the exact procedure and there is a step that requires you to "reset" the module by touching a small metal item to the battery and a metal part of the watch. (I used tweezers and it worked fine).
This watch is a basic G-Shock that withstands the elements and daily bumps of life. It does not have tide, moon, multi city, multi alarms, or atomic capabilities. This watch does keep great time and is tough as nails. It is a basic watch that displays time, date, countdown timer, alarm, and has a light.
The only reason I gave this watch to my son was I upgraded to a GWM 5600 which is the same watch but has solar and atomic features.
If you need a watch for daily use that can take pretty much anything you can dish out then this watch is for you. If you want all the bells and whistles then you might consider a Casio GW 7900 or PAG 240.
