    DW-6900 I cleaned it myself!!!!!

    Time for 8 years old DW-6900 to do some servicing. This watch was given by my father as a birthday present 8 years ago and it's been my daily beater. I swim, I play tennis, I run, I play basketball and I play gymn and this watch was always on my wrist. Few months back then, I went to this beach called " rayoung " in Thailand and then the problem started. All the rubber case fell off and crystal became foggy. Then I placed it under the sun but it didn't help. And today, I couldn't stand it anymore so I opened it and started the cleaning. As soon as I open the back case, I could smell a very strong chemical smell. Then I noticed that inside the watch it was sticky everywhere. Seemed like a glue that is exposed to some heat so it melts and sticky. (melted silicon that is put on O-ring ??). I also removed all the rusty areas that keep intact with O-ring. The glue-like substance are also on the dial and I had to clean the dial but it turned out a bit sad. Some writings on the dial are wipped out. At the end it turned out not so bad. It took me about 2 hours to do this since I went through the process slowly. Now I have to hunt down the spare rubber case for my watch.
    By the way, what's that sticky glue-like substance would be ?

    Nice job.

    It should be easy enough to get new resin parts. I'm looking forward to seeing this one fully restored.

    That must have been one dirty watch if it took 17 days to clean!
