    DW-6000 dilema

    Hi guys, so, I got thinking about the very first G that I owned and after an hour or so doing the ol' Google deep dive, I found it.....

    It was the DW-6000 circa 1991. The site won't let me post pics or links so check it out via the below.


    CASIO - DW-6000 - G-shock - Vintage Digital Watch - Digital-Watch.com

    I've managed to track one down in pretty decent shape and wondered if anyone on here would have any idea on value as I'm pretty new to buying vintage stuff so literally have no idea.

    It's pretty hard to put value on anything, after all people will try to sell for what they THINK it's worth.

    I just had a quick scan on eBay and the few that actually have bezels on are going for well over £200!

    Of course that likely isn't what they're worth and I doubt they will sell.

    In my personal opinion, I wouldn't pay more than £80-90 for one, but what you'd consider a decent price will differ from my idea of worth.

    You also need to be very careful of getting any vintage G that comes with a bezel, especially models like these that won't have aftermarket ones being made, because of potential resin rot, so you'd need to study all photos for any signs of cracks/splits, etc.

    Yep, and that's another thing that affects some older G's. The grey area in the display is where old glue has let vapours go over the years.

    It comes off easily, but the module has to come out so you can clean the inside of the crystal.
