About this deal

During the use of a second time-zone in world-time mode, the original home time of the watch remains visible in the display as well. Formerly the GW-M5610 used a green electro-luminescent panel that lit the entire display from the back (hence EL BACK LIGHT). They mention that it is a great watch for work and everyday use, and it combines durability, functionality, and clarity.

Designed around the original G-SHOCK rectangular case shape, the GW-M5610 series feature a more advanced functionality spec with Multi Band 6 Radio Controlled technology to ensure it keeps accurate time, and solar power for maximum reliability.For Europeans, the possibility to show the date in DD/MM format will be most welcome, plus the one that’s – in regular time-keeping mode –permanently visible. They mention that it never needs a battery, eliminates the need for frequent battery replacements, and constantly keeps the Watch charged up.

This was only solved two years ago with the arrival of the 3459 Bluetooth module in the line-up of solid metal Squares. Service as always has been great and I will definitely come to FCW again when the itch for another watch kicks in. In section CASE BACK my feelings for grammar are hurt: “Although the new case back learns us that the GW-M5610U is produced in Thailand, while the old GW-M5610 was produced in China.One of the things that changed with the new module is the display lighting, which caused a minor difference in print on the watch’s face. We also recommend Cape Cod Polishing Cloth + Buffing Cloth, for removing scratches on metal - or if you just want to make it look new again. Whether in Europe, North America and Japan or in the outer reaches of Canada, Central America and China - once the watch has been set to the local time, it receives the relevant signal and shows the correct time wherever you are. There’s some extra technical information as well, indicating that the GW-M5610U sports Multiband-6 time reception, as well as that it’s solar-powered.

I’m hoping that the great new displays on the GBD-200 won’t just be limited to watches with GPS, accelerometer, etc. Digital Designed around the original G-SHOCK rectangular case shape, the GW-M5610 series feature a more advanced functionality spec with Multi Band 6 Radio Controlled technology to ensure it keeps accurate time, and solar power for maximum reliability. If you compare pictures of the original and my test watch, you’ll notice how similar the two watches really look. Although the new case back teaches us that the GW-M5610U is produced in Thailand, while the old GW-M5610 was produced in China. Giving this thread a bump – I've had my 5610U for a month now, and on top of everything else I love about this watch I am impressed by how accurate mine turned out even with atomic sync switched off.

The thickness - or height of the watch in profile - is indicated by measuring the watch from top to bottom as illustrated below. But for others, the feature to show the watch’s home time in the world time and other modes might be the most important update. A combination of those two, in my opinion, would be a perfect re-edition or homage to the original DW-5000C, but that’s something for another day.

I already knew that solar model Casios have relatively weak sound, but I was hoping for something a little more impressive than the tiny sound that the watch makes. Not only are their watches extremely distinctive but you get superior protection with trademark shock-resistance. Possibly, the change was made with the last model change when the classic received a facelift in 2021. I must say the backlight with that single white LED is pretty good in lighting the entire display; I can hardly see any difference in that from the former EL backlight.I bought a GW-M5610U recently, and was pleasantly surprised that the settings button (the top left one) was not recessed as it is on the DW-5600E-1VER. After several long trials, only interrupted by a "dlc coated metal mod" attempt (severe deception: the lug to lug was literally crazy with that mod kit) I found the second superior both in design and comfort.
