I got my first G-Shock as a gift in 1980 when I was still in high school. It was a bit of a novelty at the time. Took it to Africa and back, twice. Banged it against tables and walls when people asked, "Is that thing really as tough as they say?". I went through 3 straps, but 20 years later (that's not a typo) when the casing around the watch itself finally cracked off, it was STILL RUNNING ON THE SAME BATTERY. No kidding. I've still got it in a box somewhere. The battery is dead now, but the legend of this incredibly durable, useful watch was by then well made. Recently, a terrific aluminum Swatch I was using deteriorated, and i needed another capable work piece. I was thrilled that Casio was still making these, even if they're no longer made in Japan. I'm so happy with this one. If you're looking for a watch that can really take a beating and just grin at you, this is the one. Enjoy.

Whether it is contruction, automotive, or gardening I never take the watch off. This is the 4th over the many years and they still keep time resting in a drawer. The only reason I replace the watch is when the face, cover, or band becomes so spindled and mutilated from abuse I am too embarassed to wear the watch in public. A good friend recommended the watch to me and I have passed the good advice on to my friends. I have owned Casio watches over these many years and was considering something other than Casio model this time around; however, an issue for me is that my wrist are not that large and found many of the brands with similar quality tend to come with large watch face. Tere's no doubt if I were to take the watch off doing the heavy lifting the watch would last me indefinately!

I already own the dw 5600e-1v so i wanted this gold version to accent the "silver" original. I really like the retro designs by g shock as they are aesthetically pleasing with their simple lines and clear displays. I will continue to purchase these fine watches.?

My old Casio watch, with same design, went belly up when I dropped it on the floor. That Casio watch was over 25-years old, can't count how many times I changed the battery or the wrist band. Good job Casio, you have a loyal customer.

This is the fourth G-Shock in my collection (have teal and white G-Lide's, Databank 150) and is my everyday watch. The color in the photo makes it seem as if the screen is tinted yellow and the type matches but the actual watch is much more muted unfortunately. Regardless, the watch works well like my others and looks good.
+1 for the gold buckle!

My father purchased the original "tuna can" G-Shock DW-5600 as a bus driver back in the 1980's. Until a few years ago when the incandescent light bulb burned out, it worked perfectly. I received a Casio G-Shock DW-6600 back in Middle School as a birthday present over ten years ago. I have taken it camping, hiking, swimming, white water rafting, sea kayaking, mountain climbing, zip lining, SCUBA diving, geology trips, and every other activity where I would question any other watch's survival. The watch still works beautifully. There is a reason this is the watch of choice of EMTs, Police, Fire Fighters, soldiers, Army Rangers, Navy SEALs, the Delta Force, Team 6, etc., and the G-Shock has been flight qualified by NASA for manned spaceflight.

I purchased my second G-Shock, a DW-5600, not because my old 6600 is broken, but as insurance in case the battery dies. I like how the 5600 is thinner than my 6600, does not get snagged on long sleeves, and does not have the progress meter. However, I prefer my 6600's 5-button interface over the 5600's 4-button. For the stopwatch function, to reset the counter on the 6600, I can simply press the reset button. On the 5600, I must press the recessed adjust button, a much more annoying and trickier step.

My only complaint is with the G-Shock band. The original on my 6600 broke after a few years of use. I have replaced it with two other generic rubber straps, and a second G-Shock band, all of which have failed. I now have it on a 16mm NATO strap. This seems to be working better.

I have the original standard version which is the DW-5600E-1V and it is a good one. For some reason this version the "Gold" is not mentioned enough. let me tell you the reasons I believe it's the better of the two. Here is why:

The gold colored LCD display show the digital segments to be more crisper and clearer. I've compared the two side by side. The gold colored LCD is much more better for viewing. Therefore, I can view the time, date, and day, at any angle in any lighting condition with ease. I love the gold tone buttons and gold tone buckle! It gives a unique retro 80's look. Also, the gold tone buttons go well with the black bezel with the gold color writing, giving it a nice contrast. Overall, in my opinion, this is the better version! It has the same basic much needed standard functions just like the DW-5600E-1V. I'm glad to have purchased this watch since it is getting harder to find. Get it awhile it's available now since these will soon be discontinued. You won't regret it!

This is a great watch I know I can depend on. I've had a few DW5600E's that came out in 1996 that used the old module 1545 with a full auto calendar with preset years from 1996 to 2039. My new DW5600EG-9 has a gold colour on the face background and side buttons. This watch has the same functions as the DW5600E, but lately in 2011 Casio have made a new module 3229 with a longer celendar with preset years from 2000 to 2099.

I like that this watch has the button for the backlight on side rather than the front, because when its on the front the backlight button can be pushed by mistake shortening the battery life.

Casio have kept this classic style of G-SHOCK alive for more than 20 years, so I know I can trust it.

I have loved these Casio digitals since they first hit the market in the early 80's. I may order a second as a backup. Posted a wrist shot below.
