    Bezel/strap for a DW5500, 240 module

    Hi friends,
    today I've found at my parents' my old DW5500. The bezel were broken and after removed it, got only the module(see picture below).
    I need to find its bezel and strap or another suitable for this model.
    All info will be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

    Great watch! But it's going to be impossible to find spare parts for it as this is now just about the rarest G-Shock model of all.

    Hi Excel,

    I'm afraid I can only repeat the words of WorldTime643. It's about the rarest G-Shock and spare parts are not available for a very long time.

    Cheers,

    Unfortunately no other bezel will fit this model, unlike the other early G-Shocks it has its own particular set of resin parts. Perhaps you could fit a DW-5600C strap to it, I don't know for sure.

    You can fit a 5600 band to it but you'll need to trim it down a few millimeters. I've seen the 5500 with a 5600C bezel fitted but not yet tried it myself.

    BTW - don't remove the buttons on the 5500 unless you really want them out as they are nearly impossible to put back in. :)

    The screws would not be included with the bezel, in any case the original slot '-' type screws for the 5500 are long discontinued so your best bet for some are from a cheap donor DW-5200. You could also fit DW-5600C screws but they are '+' type (no big deal, they fit that's the main thing) however they have also been recently discontinued so again, a cheap donor DW-5600C is the way to go, they are not too difficult to find.
