I have very suddenly got the opportunity to buy one of these beautiful pieces.
But I like both of them for slightly different reasons.
Several months ago, I had the opportunity to try on a "Dummy" version of the 5205G which had the darker dial, and I thought it was just perfect, the size was right so was the weight and the apertures were easy to read.
Then a couple of weeks ago, I tried on the 5726A and I was quite surprised by how heavy it was and how chunky it looked and felt.
Both pieces sit on my wrist very nicely.
Now I am of two minds, do I go down the sports route (5726) with its rugged good looks, unique style case, luminous hands/batons and that 120m water depth. And guarantee. But with a set of slightly smaller apertures that are easily covered up by both the minute and hour hands.
Or the equally new and beautiful 5205G with it's 40mm diameter case, very different concave designed case and the lugs which appear to have been sculptured. The apertures are better, imo located and will not be blocked quite so much. As well as being easier to read.
Now you are probably saying well these are two very different designed pieces (true) with the same complications, so can't you (I) decide on which one, well the simple answer is no!!
I have sold on most of my small collection and so this will be my main piece. Apart from two Omegas (Chronograph and a 34mm piece from 1958) as well as my good old faithful Casio G Shock.
Now I shall make my own mind up once I have been able to see the 5205G again.
But if you were I, which one would you go for and why??
Do I what sport or classic???
