    Can a 5600 or 5000 crystal be replaced?

    Can it be replaced at a local watch shop? If so, can a sapphire crystal be installed in its place? I'm just preparing for the worst, because I plan to keep my GW-5000B for a long long time.

    Probably not. But, it is also unlikely that you would need to.

    Casio does not sell crystals as parts anymore. (They did in the 80's.) The only way to replace the crystal is to buy a new case, which is super expensive. In the case of GW-5000 watches, I believe Casio is not selling any spare parts for it at the moment. They may not sell parts for this model ever, if they are not more widely released.

    You COULD custom build a sapphire crystal to match the shape, but then you would loose all of the writing and graphics from the watch. It would look very weird--almost like a prototype watch.
    My Rotation:
    Hamilton Khaki (2804), Khaki (2824) x3, Linwood (2824), Khaki (7750), Vintage (7750), Vintage Khaki King (2824)
    Fortis Flieger (2824)
    Seiko SCVS015 (6R15), SARB031 (6R15), SKX013 (7S26), SSB003 (6T63), 5M22-6C20, 5M22-6C30
    Tissot Carson (2824), T-Touch Titanium
    Many Self-assembled pieces
    about 100 Casio watches from the 70~90's.
