Slimmest G-Shock available?

  1. Catch22

    Sheffield, England

    Dear all,

    The father-in-law has a G-Shock g-2000 which he is finding a little too bulky. He suffers from Parkinsons disease and needs a watch that is able to take a few knocks, hence the G-Shock. The problem now is that he finds that his shirt sleeves catch on the watch itself due to its 16.5mm height off the wrist.

    So, what we need to find is a black resin banded G-Shock with the smallest height off the wrist.

    Any ideasd what is out there? I have seen the 5600 that has 12mm height, but are there any others?

    Many thanks for any help,

    The G-056 and GW-056 Polygon models are the slimmest G-Shocks. I think they were recently discontinued, but you can still find a bunch of them on eBay.

    The G-056 is 11mm thick. The GW-056 is solar atomic, so it might be a tiny bit thicker.

    I think the DW-5600E looks better, but it is a bit thicker.

    Thanks for that!

    Just found one on ebay today. Also just ordered myself a new riseman too. Cool looking watch!
