Thread: New to G-Shock

  1. #1

    New to G-Shock

    I've just purchased a DW5600HR-1 as my first G-shock although I am not new to Casio, having purchased my first Casio watch, an F100, in 1978.

    Having knocked and broken my last watch (not a Casio) I'm keen to fit bullbars on my DW5600. I've seen a few on ebay (some unbranded and some genuine) but have seen reference elsewhere to being able to purchase genuine for $4 each.

    I'm in New Zealand and don't think I'll be able to get genuine spares here. Can anyone recommend a supplier who may be able to help me or does anyone have spares they would sell me?
    Thanks
    Richard

    I think I have got to the bottom of this. Casio no longer make the bullbars. The KayandJays bullbars are a similar diameter wire to the originals. However a review of other aftermarket bullbars says they are smaller diameter than the originals.

    Deepsea_Dweller thanks for the reply and also for the links. I'll follow those up as I am quite rough with watches and forget to remove them when working on the car or DIY etc (although I managed to break the last when I was out shopping).

    The watch should arrive soon, so looking forward to both having my fist G-shock and also to knowing the time without checking my phone...

    Looking at the slow progress of the shipping by the Ebay Global Shipping Program it'll be a further week or so before I receive it....

    Note for myself...
    Next time...remember to find a seller who. Does not use the Ebay Global Shipping Program. It left the seller 7 days ago, spent 4 days at the global shipping centre and is now heading out again to fly to New Zealand. FedEx would probably take 3 or 4 days from the seller to me.

    Still waiting for delivery...

    Since my last message I have found that we are going to have 13 hours in Hong Kong as a stopover to visit family back in England in April. Sounds like I may have time to visit some shops to start my collection (as I'm guessing the one watch I have on order does not count as a collection).
