Congrats on the watch. GW5000 is definitely one of the nicest G-Shock out there.
The bezel and strap rubber is nicely upgraded from your regular G-Shock from Walmart. The GW5000 wears very comfortable on the wrist. And it has all the features you really need, nothing you don't. ;-)
I don't like the idea of those plastic screen protector, like the ones you put on your cell phone. The G-shock in designed to go under water, and the water will eventually gets between the plastic screen protector, may ruin the protector, or the screen. I don't know.
Wear it! Its a tough watch and it can take a few nicks.
