    G-Shock Headscratcher

    Hi. Long time collector of time pieces; and enthusiast of those un-affordable/un-acquirable to me. However, I am new to this forum, and funny enough... the only thing I need to post about is one of my cheapest least favorite watches.

    Casio G-Shock 2163 DW-9050

    It's my "beater" watch as the rest of my collection although laughable to others, are all special to me.

    I have a go to guy who got training by Rolex, Seiko, and Citizen. And he has been great over the years. But the battery on my g-shock died. He's on Holidays. Every thing is closed for Thanks Giving (Canada). So I go to Wal*Mart.

    Girl says she does not feel comfortable changing the battery, but allows me to do it.

    Long story short... a little clip/contact came off and I have NO idea where it is supposed to go. Any help??? It's in the middle. Pics showing me would be a great help. lol

    The piece is in the middle:

    It looks like it could be a button contact, any buttons on the side of the watch? Can you take a pic of the movement? that may help

    I hope you learned your lesson not to get your watch battery changed at Walmart.

    In fairness... It's my beater watch... made by Casio... which they sell... and the girl admitted she knew nothing about it and gave me the tools. haha

    That's my biggest issue with GShock watches. I can't find anyone willing to replace the battery and gasket.

    xchox, I may be able to help you out here, would you care to send me some more shots via PM? I don't personally own this watch and do not have one handy at the shop to crack open. :)
