Hi, just wanted to show some photos of a recent restoration. Sadly, I don't have pre-restoration shots of this watch, but I bought it when it was scratched up and missing a band and bezel. I polished the scratches out of the front and back, replaced the battery, replaced the gasket, straightened the module, put a new band.... and then it sat around doing nothing because I didn't have a bezel.
I was going to buy one of the Brazilian aftermarket bezels, but then forum member selassje (who had no idea I was even looking for one of these) messaged me and notified me that there was an auction going on for a brand new Casio bezel for the DW-5700C. It was from a seller in Spain, and when I did a search on American ebay, nothing came up, so I had to use the link that selassje gave me to access the bidding page. Long story short, no one challenged me and I ended up getting a brand new Casio bezel for the DW-5700C for LESS than the cost of one of the non-casio aftermarket parts. Thanks selassje!
So now the DW-5700C (which is known as the Sting model because there are some photos of Sting wearing one in the 1980's) is complete with all brand new genuine resin and a new battery, ready for wear in its new reincarnated life in 2012.
