    DW-5200 project / restoration - parts wanted

    Hi chaps, I just won a DW-5200(edited, thanks to kung-fusion) head with no bezel or band and just 2 yellow screws left on it. Any idea whether the Brazilian aftermarket parts are suitable for it? And where to source screws from? Thanks a lot , guys! Cheers, Dim.

    It is a gold tone dw-5200. Still a pretty rare watch and nice catch. Did you verify the other screws are not broken off inside the case?

    If the other holes are clean, your best bet to get gold slotted screws is to take them off a beat dw-5400 gold tone.

    So , it`s 5200 . Thank you , kung-fusion.
    I will receive it at the end of the week and I will give you more details. Meanwhile, are the Brazilian bezels suitable for this one? Or any other which is interchangeable from the modern ones?
    I apologize for my ignorance in advance .

    Brazil bezels will work. I would not buy any resin for it until you verify the screw holes are good. Even if they are, it has some alarm spring delamination of the crystal so personally I would just use it for parts to restore another watch. The gold buttons are remaining gold screws are somewhat rare parts in good condition

    The watch was received today. The overall condition is better than on the seller's pics. The screw holes are fine, the gold plating of the pushers is intact, very clear and visible 240 module, strong alarm and beeps , strong light, no scratches caused by the buzzer spring. I just have to source 2 gold screws and golden buckle. I already spoke with Marta from Brazil so the bezel and band set is available with yellow accents, of course. I will keep you in touch guys. Thanks for the help and meanwhile, if you see any golden screws in auction, just let me know. I appreciate this.

    Good! The screw holes are the biggest worry with these watches that are missing screws. Look for a dw-5400 gold tone. The only other alternatives are for a dw-5200 gold tone with at least two original slotted screws (rare), a dw-5000c gold version (even more rare) or a ww-5100 gold version with original slotted screws (extremely rare and should never be stripped for parts). Those are the only four watches casio made with slotted gold tone screws. Of those the 5400 is by far the easiest to get for parts.
