My name is Peter and I’m new here =]
About a few years ago my dad's friend gave us a lot stuff before he left the city. In it include 2 new casio watches. I didn't like digital watches and stayed with my automatic Swatch, until I started volunteering at a hospital when I needed my 24 hour and quick accurate time.
I started wearing it a few months ago, it was the black casio watch which had BIG digital lettering and 24hr time. [I didn't like the yellow one because it stands out too much and little too big for my wrist(especially when I’m doing CPR].
This watch has been through many emergency trauma with me and always did its job in giving me reliable time.
Now is showing signs of old age. Like the 4 original screw that old back the case can’t screw in anymore because the thread that holds the came off with the screw. So I had to rig the larger 4 screws off the side of the watch to hold the case.
So I was wondering if there any more information I can find for this watch. Like where I can get more parts from? Or how old is this….is it really that cool? I will be very grateful if I could get some info regarding the black casio dw-500.
Here are some quick crappy shot of my black black casio watch and the yellow one.
