    I thought GW-5000 has same 18mm lug space as vintage steel screwbacks. Was I wrong, is the lug space 16mm, same as on DW-5600e?

    I think the lug space is the same as the DW-5600e. I've swapped resin between the two watches (my GW-5000 has the DW-5600e bezel and my DW-5600e has the GW-5000 strap.)

    A DW5600C was waiting at my desk when I got back from vacation, it is my second 901 module.

    I got this one for a song, it just needs a new battery. The resin appears to be flexible and in good condition. No idea on the screws but I won't be touching them any time soon.

    The square bug bit you hard. I know that feeling. In the span of a few weeks after picking up the GW-5000, three more squares appeared on my doorstep. :<

    When I got it there were three scratches deep enough to catch your fingernail.

    The Brazil resin isn't perfect but it will do for a beater. I have a nicer DW5600C with original resin incoming.

    Nice.

    What did you use to polish the crystal with?

    I started with automotive wet-dry sandpaper. I went from 400 grit to 800 grit to 1500 grit. I finished up with a 7 micro diamond paste I bought on eBay. The paste polishing took a LONG time to remove the cloudiness from the previous sanding.

    One thing to note, diamond paste gets everywhere and takes forever to clean off. It feels almost grease-like until you get it all off.

    Did you just win this on eBay? I think I was bidding on that as well. Congrats!
