I found this great resource/forum a couple of weeks ago when I decided I wanted to start wearing my DW-002 BD-1T? (Eu model) which I have had since 1994, when riding my MTB or bouldering etc.
The story behind this watch is that it was bought for me a gift when I was around 12 years old, and I barely wore it. So now it is in pretty much 'as new' condition, and is ideal for my retro tastes lol.
I have had to order some spares from Casio, case screws and a resin strap. The screws have been lost, as I decided to take this watch apart for some reason (young and stupid eh!), and I don't recall what happened to the strap, as it is now snapped in half. :/
I still have the nylon sports strap/band, but I do recall unpicking the stitching and removing the 'G-Shock' label to use elsewhere. I am sad to hear that these are now no longer available. Is this true?
Luckily, the bezel etc is in A1 condition, showing zero signs of damage from either wear and tear, or the dreaded resin rot!
Here's the issues I currently have, I was supplied 6 identical screws for the watch when I gave Casio the model number, and 4 of them seem to fit the back OK, but the side screws are shorter, I know as I still have one. I guess I can acquire one from a watch repairers or similar?
The main issue I have, and am a little concerened over, is that the watch will not illuminate when the 'G' button is pressed (that is how you do it, right?!)
I have only had this watch 'working' by pressing the case together with my fingers, due to no case screws. However, they arrived in the post this morning, and I am wanting to reassemble it.
Before I do though, is there anything wrong with the sprung section of the battery carrier (sorry, don't know correct name!) being slightly raised, almost bent?
I assume the back of the case will hold everything together, but who knows!
I am new to messing about with watches. Any help getting the old girl back in business is much appreciated!
