    Another newbie but a question....

    Got this nice Screwback with the mail today.

    DW-5600C

    Nice condition and great price.





    But I'm a little surprised regarding the display.

    It is greenish/golden.

    My other golden version of the 5600C haven't this greenish/golden display.




    Any thoughts guys ?
    Is it another version of the 5600c-9cv ?

    Or there were two versions of this one in the past ?
    Regards Phil

    loving the look but not sure on the question thou
    one night I dreamed I was locked in my fathers watch, with Ptolemy and twenty one ruby stars mounted on spheres and the primum mobile coiled and gleaming to the end of space and the notched spheres eating each other's rinds to the last tooth of time and the case closed - John Ciardi ...

    Congrats Phil. Another great classic.

    I'm not sure about the display either. Sedi or Mac might know.

    As far as i know the golden version has the golden tinted display.
    Its the same for the current DW-5600EG vs. DW-5600E.

    So the gold accent 5600C with un-tinted display might be a frankenwatch.

    Thanks for your thoughts mac.

    But I often see the golden version with the normal display.
    Looks like there are a lot of Frankenwatches out there.
