So I was browsing eBay for used G-Shocks last night, hoping to come upon a great deal. And I see this set of three Casio watches, one of which is a GW-5600J, none of which are working. The price is pretty low, so I think I'm going to try to win it (I hope none of you are bidding on it!!), assuming I can get the set for around $25.
I'm thinking that the chances the GW-5600J simply ran out of juice are pretty good. And worst case scenario, maybe it needs a new solar battery, which doesn't seem to be all that expensive. I also kind of like to tinker, so even if I can't get it working, I can play with it a bit, and that would be fun, and worth something like $25 all by itself.
What do you guys think the chances are that something more serious could be wrong? What have your experiences been with buying G-Shocks that aren't working?
