5.0 out of 5 stars No brainer for work, January 27, 2006
By 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
My work requires that I write the date and time (in 24hour time) on every piece of document. Regardless, I always forget the exact date and it takes me forever converting analog time to 24hr time. This watch was perfect for me. Large clear display with date and 24hr time. Now, I just glance down at my watch and copy the data right onto the document without having to think.

The fact that this watch is virtually indestructable is an added bonus. I look forward to using this watch for at least a decade.

UPDATE:

I've been using this watch for 3 years now, going on my fourth. This is my favorite daily watch by far. I have dropped it countless times, banged it (by accident) against walls and tables god knows how many times. Lived in really humid environments for long periods without getting any moisture inside the watch. I also swim regularly during the summer time with my watch on. It has yet broken down, nor has it required a new battery or strap yet. This thing is indestructable!

Update: Going on year 6 now. Still on the original battery and strap. This watch is a machine. I work at the hospital and wash my hands about 45-50 times daily. Watch gets wet daily, has had blood splashed on it, has been banged against walls, doors, and stretchers day in and day out, and it just keeps on running. Too bad the price has gone up, otherwise, I would buy another 3 of these and give them to the rest of my family who all work in the medical field.

Hi Wesley, it's great that you updated your review after six years. Wow. This made me decide to forgo the solar version G5600E, and stick to the classic DW5600E. May I ask, how much have you used the backlight, e.g. how many times daily on average? Many thanks in advance.

I've almost never use the backlight since the hospital is never in the dark, I take my watch and scrubs off as soon as I get home because I just assume everything I wear at the hospital is dirty and I look at the wall clocks at home for time, hope this helps, my watch is still going strong!
