I was able to get a new MIB Gaussman from Japan but unfortunately, the battery is dead. Being a cut above your normal production Casio, especially because it's no longer being made I was going to send it to the Casio Factory Service Center in New Jersey. (For battery/seal replacement) I've never done anything like this before and am really apprehensive. Worst case scenarios keep running in my mind that somebody might replace my shiny, spanking-new gaussman with something else or might lose the watch altogether.
I guess I'm looking for reassurance that it will be all right by seeing if people had had success stories sending their g-shocks in for servicing. Anyway, anybody here had a good experience?
