    Question DW 500 G-Shock Questions

    I have a DW 500 G-Shock that I bought in 1988. Could one find a replacement bezel and band for this old thing? Any idea if it's worth anything without the bezel and/or band?

    The DW-500 is the original baby-g in the sense that it's a smaller version of the DW-5600C.
    The DW-500 has a smaller bezel and only 3 pushers, lacking the upper right 'Light' pusher on the 5600C.
    Unfortunately they aren't interchangeable and DW-500 bezel is pretty much impossible to find, but good luck in hunting one down.

    It's sad to hear your bezel of the first Baby-G is gone. I'm not sure bezels are available, but I have seen DW-500's in pretty good state in Japan. It might be that the bezel is available on Yahoo Japan, but franly I doubt that. It's a pretty rare model.

    Cheers,
