    Re: Glass Thickness....

    Yes, it is.

    Go look at the LAST picture in post #10 of this thread: https://forums.watchuseek.com/f17/dw5...al-906169.html -- there is picture of a two crystals from a DW-5600C, including one that cracked while being removed from the case.

    It's also why we DON'T regularly see a lot of broken crystals here at f17. Glass can be strong, mineral crystal is stronger, THICK mineral crystal is even stronger still!

    Re: Glass Thickness....

    Are the red things buttons? If so, why is there one at the bottom?

    Re: Glass Thickness....

    Can water go past the glass? Is the module water proof? or is it the outer shell? Or both?

    No, the red things are little bits of some sort of rubber-like substance that is supposed to help protect the module from bumps and impacts.

    The button pushers push against the little metal tabs, approximately where I added the green circle/oval.

    No -- the CASE with crystal installed is "waterproof" -- the outer bezel is just there as protection and has nothing to do with the water resistance.

    While the squares' may not be that thick, some of the round G's are having a pretty thick crystal. I remember seeing a thread from another member about a year ago, with a picture showing just how thick it was while he's replacing it. So far none of the keywords I tried able to find that thread yet.

    No. That picture doesn't really show the main watch underneath the bezel. They look like normal watches with the buttons extending a little farther than normal. I created a thread for pictures of these a few weeks back.

    Also, some non-G Casio's have a thicker glass crystal than the G's. I made a thread about this a while back too.
