Last night I opened up my DW8300 for a good cleaning and a battery change. But I ran into some speed bumps.
1. I found that the gasket is a bit loose, it overlaps the groove where it should be placed. Can I just push it in while putting back the caseback? Will that affect the water resistance? Or should I get a new gasket - if so, where can I find one considering this watch is discontinued?
2. Does the silicone oil (needed on the gasket) have to be dielectric? I have a box of these in different weights:
can I use this on a G-shock?
3. I would like to stock up on CR2016 batteries and change on my own watches. Which brand is the best (most practical)? Energizer, Sony, Maxell, etc.. And where is the best place to get? I know there are a lot on ebay, does it matter if they're old stocks?
Thanks in advance for any input. :thanks
