    Casio DW 5600C Screwback Mod

    Hi,

    I have a chance to get a metal cased DW5600C, do you thing a later Casio module is likely to fit in the case
    I might try to drop in solar/atomic module if it fits inside the case.
    Any info/experience on this would be most appreciated.
    I expect that I would most likely have to change the glass as well for the solar models.

    Thanks

    Welcome the forum! I think it won't work because Casio doesn't sell seperate glasses. The case for the GW-M5600 for instance comes with glass and solar panels already fixed inside the case. You'd have to find a way to remove the solar panels from a case and fix it to the new one - I believe the panels are glued so I think it might well be almost impossible to get them out without damaging them. You could however put a 1545 module inside a DW-5600C case.

    Sedi,

    Sounds like a good swap, I might well try and put the 1545 module in.
    Do you know where I can get a module from and what futures does it have?

    Thanks

    Thanks for the welcome

    In europe you could get one here Tools & Watch Accessories - 1545 Module from Tiktox.com. It's the same module used in the DW-5600E. Features are basic:
    24 hr stopwatch
    24 hr timer
    alarm
    hourly time signal
    display flasher
    powered by a CR2016 battery

    Or you could just get yourself a DW-5000SL-screwback, and the 1545 module. It'd be a shame to loose the excellent module from the DW-5600C.

    The DW-5600C looks good, however I have just bought a GWM5600-1C which has the features that I want, solar, atomic, multi alarm etc.
    I like the screwdown caseback for duribility, but the feature are limited on the 1545 module.

    Thanks

    Hey David S,
    How many seconds fast or slow does your DW5000SL Spike Lee screw back gain or lose each and every month? The reason why I'm asking this is because I own a DW5000SL that I wear 50% of the time thruout the month and mine gains over 20+ seconds each month. The owner's manual says that it shouldn't gain or lose anymore than +-15 seconds per month. I don't know why mine is running +5 to +10 seconds faster than the +-15 seconds specs that are listed in the owner's manual? Could it be that the quartz crystal oscillator inside the watch wasn't cut properly during manufacture? What do you think?
