    DW-5025B for a beater.....

    Hi people!

    Bought me a DW 5025B for daily use. Planning to fit it with DW-5600E resin. The original resin is gone,done with. The watch itself looks in good shape,but after purchase and looking beter at the sellers picture,i discovered a disturbing fact.....

    When you look on the right downside of the picture,you will see a whitish kind of stuff on the watchcase. Recon it is salt from sweating or seawater? I dont know and care either,but the question is,what can i aspect according the rubber seals of the buttons and caseback? I will find out,soon as i receive the watch,but has anyone experienced some kind of similar on a watch?

    Here's a (bad) picture from the frontside. The same white on the upper side. Its not a big issue,its gonna be a beater anyway. I just hope i am able to get the watchcase clean and that the seals are in good shape. What are my chances on that? Anyone dealt whith something like this?

    Whish me luck......

    Probably sweat or nicotine stains. Either way, it doesn't look terribly good. I would replace the resin at any rate. The case is probably fine overall since it doesn't see much exposure to the outside world. Any gunk can probably be cleaned easily with a soft toothbrush and some water. The caseback gasket is likely fine too, as are the button seals. They just don't go bad that often. I don't replace caseback gaskets unless the old one is stretched out, damaged or I'm doing a full on restoration. As long as the buttons press easily and smoothly, their seals are likely okay.

    Im fully agree with jrp.
    Regarding the seals i wouldnt fix something thats not broken.
    New resin and some water and soap and the watch is like new!
    It should look like this at the end:
