    G-7700 Light button tilted slightly upwards

    Any tips on what to do in order to get it back to normal, or is this nothing to worry about at all?
    Every buttton works, including the light button, just feel like it's not right, and water might slip in?
    THANKS for any answer <3

    The light button on my G-7700-1 is tilted the same way. It's just how it was designed.

    The way the button sits in relation to the bezel has no bearing on the water resistance. The seals on the button stems are what provides the water resistance for the buttons.

    BTW, enjoy your G-7700. It's a great little watch, and one of the most full-featured Gs ever made.

    Thanks brother. Got this from my mom in 2006-2009 ish, but haven't worn it the last 10 years haha.

    But mine seems way more curved than yours.

    Take a closer look, the G is not fully visible, almost as if it's pushed in a bit?

    Thanks for your answers again buddy <3 <3 <3

    Re: G-7700 Light button tilted slightly upwards

    Yes, you're right. It does seem to be pressed in more on yours than on mine. When I view mine at the same angle as in your last pic, the top of the G is clearly visible.

    Maybe the button stem is bent. You'd have to remove the bezel to see what's going on. Looks like there are four screws holding the resin bezel in place. I think the metal bezel pops into the resin bezel. I'm not sure if this model has a metal spring to contact the metal bezel (to reduce static electricity problems). If so, don't lose it.

    Does the button function properly?

    If not, then remove the bezel and check the button (it will spin freely once the resin bezel is removed). Then reinstall the bezel with the button oriented the correct way. When reinstalling the bezel screws, REMEMBER YOU ARE SCREWING INTO A PLASTIC CASE so do not over tighten them or you will strip the threads.

    Otherwise leave it alone. It looks fine to me.

    Looks like the bezel on this one is a bit more difficult to remove and replace without causing damage to the buttons.

    Apparently it does have a spring, as I mentioned above.

    The button indeed works, thinking I might just leave it alone, but it does annoy me a little bit(OCD kicks in hard with these things). Now I know it should spin freely when opened(thanks).

    I thought maybe it could be the fact that this model is from 2008, but they're probably all the same.
