    Casio GW-002e

    Hi all,

    I have a GW-002e which I thought I had lost after a house move, but it has reappeared and I am thankful. I really like it a lot. I collect other brands, but this one really sticks with me.

    My friend at work told me his G-Shock was still going on the same battery, and reckoned it must be nearly 20 years. I couldn't believe it, but I am sure he is not kidding.

    I thought how long the rechargeable cell in a watch like mine would last. In my friend's case he can replace the battery, but I don't know with the solar type.

    It the rechargeable cell is time limited, is it worth buying a spare now. I ask this because I am under the impression that rechargeable cells only have a finite numbers of charge cycles.

    I believe it takes the CTL1616 battery which is available. They do have a limited life depending on how they're used eg: whether they're kept charged or left drained for long periods. I don't know how long you can expect one to last. I would guess around 10 - 15 years.

    Thanks, if they are like the larger rechargeable cells, then they will not have a sudden death, but rather have capacity drop off over the years.

    I might buy the spares now, so it is done.

    I normally collect mechanicals, but am seriously thinking about some more G-Shocks. I was considering one with the compass, but am not sure how accurate these electronic one are.
