I wanted a watch to suit my lifestyle without being flash, this is it it looks retro, it feels quality and is functionally practical. Shock resistant, solar powered and radio link to atomic clock just stick it on and forget about it. Some reviewers havent liked the dark contrast of the LCD, not me, I like it because it looks great.

Bought for self mainly as a watch to use at the gym or whilst swimming. This watch should last forever. Its tough and robust. Its hugely water resistant, and solar power means that the water resistance wont be ruined by future battery changes. Radio time updates mean Im always confident the time is right, with no messing when daylight saving time starts or finishes.
I mainly bought the watch because of these features, its not my usual style. That said, the metal strap feels like a quality item, and the design has very much grown on me. Despite initial reservations, I really love the auto light feature, and find myself raising my arm in dark areas to see the time just because I can.

I chose this after a lot of looking around. It is the most comfortable watch I have ever worn. Although it is mens watch due to the strap not being too chunky it looks great. The buttons to swap between features are easy to use and it is accurate and durable for wearing at all times. Easy to get the bracelet altered thanks to Watchshop free service to do this

The watch is great! Nice design and it works well. A bit pricey, but worth the collection, especially the metal-resin bracelet.
Love it!

Bought this watch as I needed something for messing about in, that could take a bit of a beating, easy readable display, retro but yet practical and simple as I didnt want to sacrifice my current dress watch. Out the box it looks quite chunky and heavy but once on its very light and sleek looking. I do however admit to buying the replacement plastic strap but after a few day of use I reverted back to its original bracelet as it did add a little bit of class to this simple design of watch and there are more granular adjustments on the bracelet for a perfect fit on the wrist. Only downfall I have is the alarm. You can hear the alarm for reminders if you are awake but when sleeping with it, you dont hear the alarm or its snooze reminders. But lets be honest, we all go to sleep with our mobile phone / arm set next to us so thats the most sensible solution for a timed awakening. The radio function works a treat, never had an issue with the reception, display light activated when moving the arm has been quite handy on a few dark occasions. All in all, quite pleased with the watch, didnt give it an excellent rating due to quiet alarm but dont let that put you off - I may be just a little bit deaf.

Overall im really pleased with this product, the idea of a watch which is solar powered no pain in the butt battery changes and always tells the correct time the radio thing not sure how it works but I love knowing that i have the right time, Ive got much more expensive watches but they tend to be poor timekeepers.
Like the styling, Ive got skinny wrists and it doesnt look out of place or like Im trying to make a statement,
Braclet is reassuringly metal rather than some of the other casio plastic straps. it was easy to size and fits well.
Also love the auto illumination feature, it doesnt always work, you need to get used to the wrist movement,
Only issue is screen is quite small and a little tricky to read in some lights.
But overall seems like an excellent product,

The watch is exactly what I was looking for. Its not too overpowering so if you like your g-shocks a little subtler this is ideal. Packed with great features and the negative display is easier to read than I thought. Bracelet adds a bit of class rather than the resin type usually found in this price range and extremely easy to adjust yourself with a simple paperclip and is really comfortable.

The watch description was not very good. I would not of bought this watch had I had seen it in a shop. The watch is more for a boy, the face is small with small led digits which are hard to see and use. I would not recommend this watch I wish that I had paid more and got a better watch

Fantastic piece of kit! Does everything it says on the box and all I have to do is wear it. It does the rest.
Like the look and feel of the watch. Black, classy and not too chunky.
It keeps perfect time and automatically recharges the battery.
Good back light and I really like the automatic light up when I position my wrist to see it at night.
With 20 bar waterproofing I dont have to worry about the occasional splash of water.

Watch was exactly as described. Id spent a little time researching and really liked the more subtle black on black compared to a lot of either huge or brightly colour or both G-shocks. Well made and feels like it will last. The radio and calibration is straight forward and gets good signal in London so you know its 100% accurate. Battery gauge is useful but despite playing with it and it being winter its not dipped below M so far.

Only negative, and something i was aware of before buying was the white or clear on black of the dial isnt as instantly clear as the black on clear of a traditional lcd. Its not something that ill worry about too much but some people might find it hard to read. It is a lot easier to read with the back light and that comes on automatically if you change the setting.

All in all very pleased.

Great item for the occasional wearer or g-shock collector. Great fit to the wrist and buttons are well protected.
This item is one of quite a few I own and I would call it my daily as it sits well under a jacket or jumper and with its link bracelet, fits perfectly between business and recreation.

Really an exellent watch, it still maintains the look of a casio watch but has the feel of a matured watch. I was sceptical at first due to the classic rubbery band of the watched but this is durae and has a weight like feel on the wrist. Making it brilliantly comfortable to wear and use. At the moment I cant show a picture of it on my hand due to my iphone 5s falling and permanently closing my lens however this is the first well second watch I have ever bought watch that I have no regret in buying. The feature that has catched my eyes is the world clock, I mean come on! You literally have the worlds time on your wrist! Also this particular factor I am a bit confused with which I really cant say, is is solar powered or hand powered? Either way the watch is still powered by natural source or sources.

Another thing i would like to include is, in my household, our first watches were Casio watches,for me and my two older siblings it was basic but we loved it. I remember i was fond of colours.

If you decide to buy this watch which is not just a fashionable watch but also a smart watch, you will not be displeased.

Amazing watch. Really slick looking and stealthy. So easy to setup and has all the world timezones preset. Solar powered which is really cool. For improvements Id consider is for the backlight function to be adjustable or for the timer to be longer. Be also nice to have the year displayed on the date counter. Overall though its phenomenal and such a nice looking watch that feels super light and tough.

This is my third G-Shock of this shape. My first white one has been around the world with me and it still looks like new. These are fantastic, especially with the solar and radio controlled features. The bracelet on this model is surprisingly comfy coming from rubber straps on my other two. If there is one minor complaint then its that the reverse display is slightly harder to read than the regular one but I like the stealthiness of it in any case.

The quality of the watch bracelet is good. The styling and function activation is good. All the features are as described.
BUT, despite several days on the window sill trying to charge the display up it is still virtually impossible to read the numbers. The contrast between the black background and grey numbers is less than depicted in the photograph and makes using the watch impractical the photo shows the best angle possible, it gets worse. The time can only be seen clearly when the backlight button is pressed.
Another warning to potential buyers, the instructions recommend that the watch is worn below the sleeve so that the face is completely uncovered at all times to allow charging - not practical with most wardrobes.

I was pleasently surprised. Usually when I see staff in online stores it looks good, description is the best, etc. But when you actually receive it, open box, you feel a bit let down. Not this time. Its week after I got it, but every morning I put it on feeling excited and I know its just a watch.
its all good.

First of all, sorry for my english. It is not perfect, because I am not from english spoken country. What a lovely shopping experience. Watch arrived with all the documents, really fast during xmas and was securely packaged. This shop is my only option in the future. I will try to save some money soon for my next watch, and will recommend you to all my friends. They actually already admired my new watch today in the pub. Price-performance ratio for this watch is absolutely unbeatable. But not everywhere. In this shop for sure. Would you believe it, you need a simple paperclip to adjust the bracelet. Job is done in couple of minutes. Advantages: premium look, premium feel, 20 bar water resist, atomic timekeeping, solar battery charging, shock resist, mineral crystal and of course legendary design. Do not hesitate to buy this watch. You will not regret. Thank you for all your help during buying process stages. Due to all your security stages, my money was safe every single second. Happy new year. Andrej from Slovenia.

This watch has all the functions you really need. The composite bracelet is excellent, it combines the flexibility and comfort of a traditional bracelet with the lightness of a resin strap. The negative display looks great but the legibility does suffer.

Got this as a present for Xmas , I am very impressed it looks good and is good, really good. Why this particular model? First the inverted display. I like it - its fine in normal light and I like looking at the dark blacked out face in low light. Its got a bluey green light which is oh so cool when you press the light switch - which youll need to do in low light. Or you can use the flicky wrist thing which Ive turned off. Second the strap. What can I say? It puts the G shock into the world of a more luxury experience. Forget resin straps - if you like comfort and style, buy this one. Its got radio reception so no more running fast, slow . And solar power means no more batteries. One word sums it all up for me - brilliant. Very pleased with it

The Casio GW-M5610BC-1ER surpassed my expectations.

The watch itself is very comfortable to wear. The features are very intuative and its very reassuring to know that I wont have to worry about adjusting for DST or changing the battery. The negative display complements the overal look of the watch and it is very easy to read in most lighting situations. The auto back light steps in when needed and is a very handy feature.

One of the distinguishing features of the watch is the black steel and plastic bracelet with a push button release clasp. This nicely sets the watch apart from other 5600s and gives the watch a nice stealth like appearance.

Ive already worn the watch on a few formal and less formal occasions and a number of friends have already given positive green eye feedback!

I cant recommend the Casio GW-M5610BC-1ER highly enough. I appreciate that the negative display wont be everyones cup of tea but if this doesnt both you and your still reading this then Im sure youll be just as happy as I am if you decide to purchase one.

Bought this timepiece for myself, I was looking for this model for some time now till i found it here on watchshop plus it was on sale, so it was an instant buy from me. Very good price. For the watch what can i say?! A g-shock like this one doesnt really need no introduction, a lot a people stay away from negative displays, but i got no problems reading it, plus it got the EL backlight which makes it absolutely readable in the dark too. It can be used by pressing the light button or activate the auto-light function that automatically turns on illumination when you angle the watch towards your face, truly great feature. I really like the stealth look, very sleek and wearable with almost everything, casual or elegant clothing. Very easy to use and set, tough solar, multiband 6 and WR 20BAR to complete this watch greatness. Need i say more?

The service was great it arrived the following day. The item for me personally was a poor choice.I use to wear a G-Shock G-2900F-2VER At a glance in any light I could read it.This watch takes a bit more effort to read the display,which will bug a lot of people Im sure.But the watch does seem to be very well made,and apart from the flaw on its primary purpose its still a very practical watch.Marmite,you will love it or ........

Really great watch! It is solar powered, has automatic time updates and is nearly all black which are the three features I was after. I only use it for telling the time/date, not too interested in the other features. G-Shocks can be quite large which I was worried about as I only have slim wrists, but this one is quite small so looks perfect. I really like the strap, much easier and quicker to put on than a standard buckle type and the watch overall is very light. Can be worn with smart, casual or sporty clothes. Im really glad I bought it and highly recommend it to anyone.

Do not hesitate to buy this watch.

It is a beaituful, understated powerhouse of a watch that has so much technology under the bonnet to boot.

I love the auto-light feature, makes it ideal for special forces or normal office people.

After half a year decision making progress I decided to order the GW-M5610BC-1ER last week when it came with a sales discount finally . Great watch, somewhat hard to read under bad light conditions. However the auto illuminator function a.el, light turns on by rotation of your wrist when light conditions are under certain quality, should compensate this. Unfortunately the tilt sensor seems to malfunction, so Ill have to return it for repair/replacement. Helpdesk@watchshop is giving great service under their return policy so far.

I own a GW-M5610-1ER too purchased here earlier this year, with a resin bracelet. After wearing the BC metal-resin bracelet over the weekend, I noticed how much better the fit and comfort is. After a while you‘ld almost forget there is a watch on your wrist. Despite the weight of the BC version, which feels more sturdy as it’s bit heavier than the GW-M5610-1ER. I might buy separate second metal-resin bracelet for the GW-M5610-1ER.

PRO’s:
Great no-nonsense stealth styled watch that does it all
Lots of auto functions Power save function, solar charged, radio controlled time calibration, auto backlight
Time-less classical design and feel
Comfortable bracelet.

CON:
Poor contrast under bad light conditions.

TLDR:
Incredibly good looking all rounder with enough style for any situation and likely to be a rare collectors item. Only gripe is auto-EL doesnt work well for me.

LONG VERSION:
Im a bit of a watch nerd and like having the option to choose whats on my wrist depending on my day ahead. Ive got a few nice dress watches, a few digital watches and some specialist ones like a Pebble smartwatch and an old Japanese PIMP watch but no G-Shock watches to speak of, until this one.

Originally I was looking at getting one of the big, bulbous G-Shocks but the more I looked at photos the more I thought they would be too big, unwieldy and potentially uncomfortable. I started making a list of the things that were important to me in a G-Shock:

- masculine but understated
- rugged and able to take a few knocks
- looks reasonably smart for business situations
- solar powered preferable
- multi-band 5/6 time automatic time syncing preferable
- backlight
- something a bit different

The GW-M5610BC ticked all the boxes! Compared to a regular Casio digital watch like the F91W its chunkier and thicker, giving it a masculine bulk that looks great on the wrist and a pleasant but not annoyingly top-heavy weight on the wrist. It doesnt look as over the top as some of the larger G-Shocks and seems to suit all situations whether Im playing sport or sat in a meeting alongside people wearing £1000 watches.

The fantastic composite metal/plastic wrist strap that comes exclusively with this watch looks great and is effortless to wear. Its got spring-loaded pin links to so its really easy to make adjustments using a paperclip so no trips to the jewelers or anything like that.

The watch itself looks fantastic in the flesh. Its a stunning, stealthy matt black all over and looks expensive but not brash. Im a child of the 80s so this watch looks a little retro to me at first glance but then when you check out the display and the detailing you realise its packed with modern tech making it a wonderful fusion of old and new. The unusual and reasonably rare inverted black lcd screen looks incredibly cool and has draw lots of comments from friends and colleagues. Occasionally the lcd may require a second glance in low light conditions or if youre eyesight is less than 20/20 but its not a deal breaker and I feel is simply a price worth paying for having a different watch face.

The tough solar tech built into the watch is great and works flawlessly, keeping the battery well charged even after several days of extensive use and exposure to dull grey skies. Equally the multiband 6 time syncing worked without any effort and got my factory set watch telling the correct time in less than 5 mins from opening the packaging.

My only criticism of this watch is the auto illumination function which I find to be a bit hit and miss. I wear my watch on my left wrist and can only get the auto light to come on when I twist my wrist in a really uncomfortable way. To overcome this problem Ive turned off auto-EL and go to the perfectly reasonable effort of pressing the light button with a finger which does the job perfectly well!

I use the stopwatch function occasionally but generally dont touch the world time, countdown timer or alarm functions but they all seem to work fine if youre interested in them.

I love how clean the watch face is, simply presenting pertinent information and keeping all the non-essential stuff minimal and out of the way. The two tier lcd is clever and looks cool in stopwatch or countdown mode as it displays extra info while retaining the big central digits.

Overall, this is a stylish, high-tech watch that looks masculine and chunky without being over the top. Its never going to need a battery and is perfectly accurate thanks to the multiband 6 radio-sync tech crammed within. Because of its unusual lcd and composite strap its probably going to be a bit of a collectors item in the future so is worth investing in if it ticks all the boxes for you.

An excellent buy. It is the classic g-shock of the 80s with modern touches. While waiting for the order I was worried Id have trouble reading off the black dial, but no such issues. Whatever the light and the angle I can read it fine I even use it for my daily training runs. The link strap is brilliant and gives it a touch of refinement, if not class.

Overall very happy with the buy. The GW-M5610BC-1ER is retro cool!

The watch was adjusted and dispatched the same day and arrived the following day, I cannot fault the service with Watch Shop its simply exceptional. Now for the watch itself..
Having browsed for most of the day for a new timepiece As my old G-Shock had passed its sell by date I finally decided on this beauty and boy was I right. The reverse LCD display is bliss to look at, albeit a little hard to make out sometimes but the auto lighting function quickly rectifies that issue. The stealth black look of the watch looks amazing on pictures and even better in reality. The watchs buttons are all ergonomically positioned and the modes are easy to understand get to grips with, regardless of the 100+ page manual. The black resin/metal hybrid bracelet is beautifully put together and easily catches the eye and adds to the aesthetic beauty of this timepiece. I had to have 3 links taken out to fit my 17 cm wrist and now it fits like a charm.

Overall this sleek watch goes well with any outfit and comes additional piece of mind of any normal G-Shock that it can withstand some beating before giving out.

I would recommend this watch to anyone.

Build quality excellent and really like the strap with its combination of metal and resin.

The screen is a little hard to see in certain light conditions but really not an issue plus the black screen looks better than normal lcd.

Overall very pleased

I liked the look of the watch in the photos and video on the Watch Shop website and in real life I think it looks just as good. Almost stealth like! Its chunky without being ridiculously big. The strap is easy to adjust to the perfect size and is very comfortable to wear. Unlike some reviews I read on here, I dont think the strap is too thin at all. The watch is pretty self explanatory to use. I flicked through the instruction book, but just pressing buttons really tells you all you need to know. I find the display pretty easy to read in most conditions and in the dark the auto light feature is excellent! Would definitely recommend this watch to anyone who may be considering buying.

Pleased with the watch.It appears robust,can wear it whilst swimming ,and no faffing about with batteries.However if you wear specs for reading you need to put them on to read the screen! Should have bought a geriatric version with large screen.

I have just purchased this watch and the first thing I noticed when I took it out of the box was the poor contrast on the display. I have difficulty reading it in most lighting conditions, wheras my previous watch also a Casio Wave ceptor us very clear. Apart from that, it is a very good watch, and just what I wanted, but Im afraid I will have to return it.

The most annoying thing is that there is a version of the watch with much clearer display, but this is only available with a rubber strap, and I particularly want a metal bracelet.

I was looking for a military style G-Shock and this one was standing out from the crowd of all the G-Shocks so i purchased it. And Im not regretting it at all, especially since it was very affordable with the coupon and reward points from my last purchase.

Its slightly smaller than most G-Shocks still a lot bigger than Baby-Gs, but still chunky enough to provide good protection to itself. Glass is recessed enough so you wont crush or scratch it, but not as much that it would look too sci-fi or like a toy. Its just the right balance in my opinion.

Its radio controlled Multiband 6 it always keeps absolutely perfect time. I was skeptical at first that i wont get radio signal in my house, but it seems to still reach it despite all the no-nos in the instruction manual, that i found online before the purchase. Setting it up for radio control was an easy task despite having to use a bit clumsy tiny instruction manual. In fact all the settings are reasonably easy to reach and adjust, so youll get the feel for it in no time.

Tough Solar system is powering the watch using light and its quite intelligent system. It keeps the watch powered in full darkness for 10 months which is more than most watches with usual 6 months power reserve. It also features several smart functions to save power using light detection. For example if you enable PS Power Saving mode, the watch will turn off display when in full darkness for a longer time and go into hibernation mode if in full darkness for several days. It will also detect light and block the Auto Illumination from enabling itself during day time when there is no need for it. Always visible Low/Medium/High battery indicator always keeps you informed on power reserve.

Other great point about this watch is the bracelet. Its not the usual silicone strap as found on most G-Shocks, instead, this watch uses a composite resin bracelet. Its made of composite plastic/metal links and ion platted solid metal links. And in real life, it looks very premium. Photos online are not doing it any justice as it looks rather plastic and cheap on them. But in real life, it feels like its made of metal and carbon fiber. I love it. Not to mention it is much easier to adjust than all metal bracelets on dressy watches. All you need is an usual paper clip and you can take links off as they use regular spring bars and not pins that you have to push out to one side using special tool. So its sturdy and very practical. There are a lot of links and also several levels of adjustment in the fold clip to adjust it to your wrist with ease.

And now to the negative LCD or BlackLCD as i call it. I was again skeptical how a very dark display will work out. And to my surprise, its just superb. It makes the watch look a bit more stealthy and modern opposed to 90s looking positive LCD. It has amazing visibility on extreme direct sunlight and also in normal day light. Visibility is slightly worse in very dim light, but if there is still at least some weak source of light you will still be able to see it. And once its too dark, you can use screen back illumination which also has an auto mode where light enables itself for 2 seconds when you raise your watch to a viewing point and only works when its dark enough to make sense using it. It wont light up during day time to save power.

I used to be a big fan of all metal dress/sporty watches, but now that i got this amazing G-Shock, i just dont want to take it off my wrist. It just has a lot of character, if i can put it that way. If you are looking for a more conservative G-Shock, but you still want a very tough watch, get this one. You wont regret it, i can easily assure you with that!

Having read several positive reviews on various websites I decided to take the plunge. All in all an excellent watch but for me is greatly let down by the strap. Dont get me wrong it looks and feels great but the width of the strap is tiny, it looks really feeble for a G-Shock watch. I chose this particular model because it wasnt as big and chunky as most G-Shocks tend to be but didnt realise the strap width was so thin, it progressively gets thinner from the face of the watch, it almost looks like a ladies strap. A real shame as the watch itself I cannot fault, solar powered, radio controlled, auto illumination and 200m water resistant. Great watch, poor strap.
