Specifications: (from Casio site)

Auto-Illuminator
An electro-luminescent panel causes the entire face to glow for easy reading. Auto Light automatically turns on the EL backlight when the watch is tilted towards your face for reading.
Shock resistant
Shock-resistant construction protects against impact and vibration.
Solar Power
A solar cell provides power for operation.
DCF/MSF/WWVB/JJY radio signal receiver
In Europe or North America, in many parts of Canada and Central America or Japan - once the watch has been set to the local time zone, it receives the relevant signal ensuring that it always shows the exact time. In many countries the summer and winter time is also shown automatically.
World time function
Displays the current time in major cities and specific areas around the world.
Stopwatch function - 1/100 sec - 1.000 hours
Elapsed time, split time and final time are measured with 1/100-sec accuracy. The watch can measure times of up to 1000 hours.
Timer - 1/1 min. - 1 hour
For fans of precision: the countdown timers help you to remember specific or recurring events by giving off an audible signal at a preset time. The time can be set to the nearest minute and up to 1 hour in advance. Ideal for people who need to take medicines every day or those who do interval training.
5 daily alarms
The daily alarm reminds you about recurring events with an acoustic signal at the time you have set. You can also activate hourly time signal that indicates each full hour. This model has 5 independent alarms for flexible reminders of important appointments.
Snooze feature
Each time you stop the alarm, it sounds again after a few minutes.
Automatic calendar
Once set, the automatic calendar always displays the correct date.
12/24-hour timekeeping
Times can be displayed in either a 12-hour or 24-hour format.
Mineral glass
The tough, scratch-resistant mineral glass protects the watch against unsightly damage.
Resin case
Resin band
Natural resin is the ideal material for wrist straps thanks to its extremely durable and flexible properties.
Battery level indicator
An indicator shows the current battery level.
Water resistance classification (20 bar)
Perfect for free diving without scuba gear: the watch is water resistant to 20 bar / 200 metres. The metres value does not relate to a diving depth but to the air pressure used in the course of the water resistance test. (ISO 2281)
Type of battery
CTL1616
Dimensions
approx. 46,7mm x 43,2mm x 12,7mm (H x W x D)
Weight
approx. 51,7 g

Chosen by Catalin

Why: ultra-tough watch and the most classic G-Shock that is still in production; the price is also good (the US model GW5600 is probably the least expensive solar radio G-Shock and DW5600 is even cheaper); there are also even more exotic versions if you really want something special. The perfect 'go to in case of emergency' watch, a complete watch (with chrono, timer, perpetual calendar and excellent world-time) that does not need any special care from the owner but instead takes care of itselfLaughing. Also we do not have any quartz in the top-10 Rolling on the floor laughing my a.. off G-Shock models are also some of the very few watches approved for space flight by NASA (and are FAR more dependable than ANY of the models that are currently listed in out TOP10) !!!

Picture: (from Casio site, if people want we can place another 5600 instead each month smile )
