    Picture Casio DW5700-restoration

    Hi,

    I bought a DW5700, with a 901 module, today from a local online store and wanted to share some pictures...
    The watch was in a very bad shape, with superglue at some places that held the bezel together.

    but the display-glass showed no scratches.

    It was clear that I had to remove the bezel to clean the whole thing. As it was glued, it just broke into pieces..

    At that moment the real dirt face showed up :) You can see the superglue traces. Unbelievable..

    After removing the watch band and a loooot of careful cleaning the beauty got a new face...

    Tomorrow the battery and the seal will be replaced and now I need a new bezel and band. I have seen some aftermarket bezels but now they are gone too. Any info on that would be great!
    The watch does not have a serial number or anything and any info regarding the age would be great too.
    Thank you!

    Wow, that really cleaned up nicely! I think the original 5700s were first issued in 1987; yours has gold buttons and screws, which would make it a DW-5700C-9V.

    As far as bezels go, the OEM Casio ones are a bit harder to find these days since they were discontinued. watches.br on Facebook (commonly referred to as Brazilian resin) sells aftermarket bezels and bands for these watches.

    Friggen sweet joe,bring that bad boy back to life.the brazil bezel is pretty good and half of my 5400,s and 5700,s can attest to this.I think you can still get the OEM Casio strap for these on e bay.

    Cheers

    Thank you for the information. It seems that I`m too late for the brazilian resign, so I`ll have to patiently wait. Apparently all the luck is gone with the purchase of the watch. :)

    May be you can make it a square, instead of the round 5700 bezel use 5600C bezel. Perhaps easier to find.

    Maybe, I have seen such a version but there is too much blank space on the dial because of the different shape of the 5700. But that is the only option if I dont find a bezel. Maybe I will change the module in my DW5000SL which has the Spike Lee branding. I heard that should fit 1:1.

    Re: Casio DW5700-restoration

    Was there no Brazilian resin in stock for the 5700C? That's surprising.

    I *think* the 1545 module from the SL will fit (seems like I've read that it will), but one thing to keep in mind is that the 'Light' and 'REM' buttons on the 5700 case will be reversed on the newer module. The crystal labeling won't match up on that side any longer. Why change the module though?
