    Depth sensor for the frogman gwg d1000

    Hello G shock fans
    I need opinion from g shock experts please
    I bought asecond hand casio frogman gwg d1000
    The watch in very good condition but every time my finger touches the depth sensor i feel a little bit loosy
    I removed the top rubber bezel and found the sensor a small peice of metal resting upon a red plastic holder fixed to the middle case
    So have anyone disassembled this watch to see how the sensor is fixed to the watch?
    And i found that this metal sensor is not screwed to the case as i thought it should be, but it is just resting upon the red plastic holder.

    Thanks in advance

    The round piece of metal you see here is not "the sensor." It is the sensor cover. The actual sensor is behind that.

    Yes I understand but why the actual sensor is made of a piece of plastic and not metal as the watch is the highest quality of the g shock range??

    I have not seen the sensor. You'd have to ask Casio why they made certain parts the way they did. I'm sure they had good reason.

    To get back to the point of this thread, you said your sensor cover was loose. Were you able to tighten it? I have 3 GWF-D1000s and none of mine are loose. I guess that's one of the dangers of buying a second-hand watch - you never know how the previous owner treated it. He could have taken your Frog apart - you don't know...

    You are totally right
    The decision of buying a second hand watch is not always good.
    Anyway i will let my watchmaker remove the plastic bezel and see why the metal sensor cover is loose.
    Hope it is not serious problem
    But other than this issue the watch has a bery quality feel
    I had the mudmaster but i feel the frogman is way better than it
    It is more heavy
    Has more solid feel
    The case back is very thick as if i am wearing a high end swiss diving watch
    I like the case being dlc coated.
    The only thing that is not good is that the strap is very long and can not be cut to adjust the length.

    Since you have 3 frogmans
    How do you find the quality of the sapphire crystal?
    Can it resist scratches well or not ?
    Does the crystal have A/R coating that is easily scratchable?

    I cannot talk about how well the sapphire crystal resists scratches. Mine do not have any - but they are not subject to conditions where they'd normally get scratched. It should be as good as any other sapphire crystal in that regard.

    Same with A/R coating. I can't answer. Wouldn't that coating be on the inside of the lens anyway?

    Could be on both sides, but most of the time it's on the inside

    Sorry to revive old thread but after gym today I noticed that sensor cover was sitting a bit on the left side. Its easy to put it back in center and it has a bit of play. The watch is only 6 months old. The amount of play is minimum but I want to be sure it is normal since I still have warranty. Thanks in advance.
