    GW 5000 skin,would it fit a 5200?

    Hello G Shock brothers,does anybody off hand know if the strap on the JDM GM-5000 bezel and strap would fit and or stretch onto a real nice DW 5200 from the mid eighties.I thought I might try this route before searching out a Brazilian example,thanks for your time.

    Cheers
    John

    No. You could cut and modify it but the results are no good in my experience, unless your standards are really low. Best to get Brazil resin

    Brazilian is pretty much the best way to go nowadays. If the Brazilian manufacturer could get the font lettering to be more authentic to the real thing, that'd really be great. That's one of the pitfalls of vintage Gs though. My DW-5000C had an OE bezel on it when I bought it, but it crumbled to bits in my pocket on the ride home; that's when I learned about the availability (or lack thereof) of OE bezels. The bands still show in stock on Pacparts' site, but the bezels nevermore.

    They pretty much said it all above.

    GW5000 = DW-5030 = DW-5600E =>OEM Bezel and Strap *special note that there's a specific gw5000 strap which is softer and should fit all three models.


    DW5000 = DW5200 = DW5600C => OEM Bezel and Strap or Brazil
