    [URGENT] Need parts for MIB2 Raysman

    I've had this timepiece for 11 years, and just days ago the casing/bezel has caught up with resin aging, and the part that covers the mode switch has cracked.
    Because of its unique one-piece design, the entire casing has to be replaced.

    I never got to wear this for more than 5 times and has confined it to storage.

    I've been told by a few sources, including Casio Japan, that all parts for the 9300/9350 series have been discontinued.

    Does anyone else know where I could find the necessary parts, in pristine condition?
    And, if I have to sell this watch in such damaged condition, who much would it be appraised at?

    Kindly advise!!

    Already tried Yahoo JP Auctions, no dice
    The latter doesn't help either, only a few resin bands available

    I doubt you'll find the bezel you're after unfortunately.

    It would be an extremely rare thing to come around.

    Interesting that it has deteriorated in storage. This might be the best evidence yet that keeping resin away from sunlight, moisture and salt won't necessarily prevent degradation.
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    Best of luck, the MIB2 Rays is pretty rare even as a whole watch. Finding just the resin is going to be next to impossible. You will just have to keep checking eBay and YJ.

    That really depends on model.
    Many other general G-shock models feature solid resin bezel which more resistant to aging.
    The Raysman, however, has a bezel that is wrapped with rubbery resin, which is more susceptable to degradation.
    In fact I've been told that Casio parts like casing/bezels and resin bands have a shelf-life of juat 10 years and, once exposed to open air, the lifetime will be even shorter.

    That makes sense. The resin does seem a lot more soft on my Raysmen compared to the others, and the part above the light button seems especially thin.
