    Gshock - GW2500

    I have a Casio G-Shock ana-digi GW2500-B.
    Love the watch, but the mineral crystal has a nice deep gouge in it. Casio says they can't replace the crystal. Any way to do so, or is it available anywhere? The watch is still available from retailers, so I wouldn't think it would be totally discontinued yet... only had the watch a couple years...

    Idears?

    I think any watchmaker who deserves that name should be able to do that.

    Can't beleive Casio say they can't replace the crystal! Wonder why, as this is a really common watch repair. I've had my Citizen Skyhawk crystal replaced twice now by Citizen, (I was a little careless with this watch) at very reasonable costs, around £25.

    I actually have a GW2500, so will be really careful with it now seeing as the repair is beyond Casio...
    Never argue with an idiot - they'll only bring you down to their level and win from experience...

    Yeah, I have a Citizen Calibre 8700 and have had the crystal replaced several times as well... I wear the Casio at night due to the light and also for when I'm doing work that is more intensive than sitting behind a desk :) It's a great watch, but would love to get a new crystal in it and get it re-sealed.

    Really - I think any watchmaker should be able to do that - the gasket is standard (round not some odd shape like on some other G-Shocks) and the crystal too.

    Sedi, I will check with a watchmaker/repair place here in town and see what they have to say... We have a good friend of the family that does that for a living, so I will talk to him first... :)

    You may want to try contacting them again. Sometimes, you'll get a lazy service rep or one that isn't very knowledgeable. Just doesn't make sense they can't replace the crystal.

    I even found the part number on pacparts.com. So if they have it listed, the part does exist and their service department should be able to service.

    Yeah, I looked on pacparts also and found the same thing...I called Timemasters again and they said they have to put it in a new case and special order the case from Casio in Japan.

    I will probably try to go the local route first...
