    Replacement strap, er, though I just want a different one, not sure which!

    Hey G-Shockzone

    I have a GW-M5600BC (http://www.flickr.com/photos/61347056@N04/5596228861/) and I don't wear it often enough. I have a couple of other G Shocks I wear more often, my GLX5600-7 (http://www.gshock.com/watches/Classic/GLX5600-7) and my GR8900A-7 http://www.gshock.com/watches/Classic/GR8900A-7

    And I think I've decided its because of the fake metal plastic strap. I think it annoys me. Some how I think the watch is made to feel heavy in comparison with the strap, or maybe it sits funny or, well, I don't really know but there is just something not right about the strap.

    So I was thinking I'd just get another, from other other G Shock and stick it on. I like the strap from my GLX5600-7, so I was thinking one of those, but in a matt black to suit the GW-M5600BC.

    The GLX5600-1 is the right strap, but its shiney and I think matt would better suit my watch.
    Is DW5600MS-1 (http://www.gshock.com/watches/Classic/DW5600MS-1) the one I want?
    Or maybe DW6900HM-1 http://www.gshock.com/watches/Classic/DW6900HM-1 ?
    Or maybe some other?


    If anybody is interested, my GW-M5600BC sat face down and un used on a table for about a month, maybe a bit longer, and the battery went down to medium. A morning of it sitting on a window ledge, facing a window on a cloudy day and its back up to high. Which seems fair enough.

    I do wish these radio watches would swap timezones automatically. Or maybe I should carry less watches with me when I travel. Not sure heh

    Any pointers would be appreciated!


    thanks guys


    Mike

    The strap from the regular GW-M5600 would be a good match for the bezel and of course be a spot on fit.

    Pretty sure the 6900 strap wouldn't fit, unsure about the regular DW-5600. Possibly.

    I'm going to get a regular GWM5600 strap, put it on and see how it feels. Cheers!
