Great Beater Watch!
The G-Shock DW-5600 is an icon with its quintessential 80s design. This watch features many useful amenities; I tend to use the stopwatch and timer function quite often. The DW-5600 is smaller in comparison to the rest of the G-Shock offerings and is very comfortable. This makes a great addition to any watch collection!
Robust, Simple and Reliable!
I really like this watch. The retro look combined with the modern innovation of being solar power is a great blend of classic design merged with modern technology.
What appealed to me about this watch is that it was designed for purely practical and pragmatic reasons, but also the history behind its previous descendants. This model is based on the DW-5600C-1V, the same watch worn by Keanu Reeves in the movie 'Speed', but more impressively, the watch was approved for NASA space missions.
Although this G Shock isn't the DW-5600C-1V, it is a...modern upgrade replete with the same qualities which made it so robust. The watch itself was delivered quickly by Amazon to Australia. Setting up the time was a simple process, and because I have small wrists, I find the bigger G Shocks tend to be a bit big on the wrists and get in the way a bit, this watch however is a good size. The most impressive thing is the atomic time keeping function of this watch. Currently living in Australia, I am unfortunately unable to take advantage of this feature, however, being someone who travels a lot, I will be taking advantage of this option.
