My name's Josh and I'm a new member here from Kentucky. I've been mostly a Timex and Fossil guy over my 31 years and just recently picked up my first G-Shock. As both G-Shocks and I were born in 1983, I kept my eyes open for a DW-5000. I struck pay dirt yesterday at the flea market with the unit below.
From my research, it looks to be an original '83 model with module 240. The band's in decent shape, but it doesn't have any Casio markings which leads me to believe that it's aftermarket. The case, caseback and crystal are in pretty good shape, although I haven't had a chance to get a battery in it to see if it'll work. It has the original flat head bezel screws, all four are intact and I'm not about to even look at them too hard. (I've read a few horror stories on here about those things.) I'm finding out rather rapidly that Casio made bezels and bands are super rare these days, so I may have to secure a Brazilian set for it until(if) a Casio set comes along. As it is, it fits my wrist pretty well and wears nicely.
I've got a 5600E coming from the 'bay for a daily wear watch; this one I'll probably save for occasional wear. Any thoughts/opinions/advice you could give me about this watch would be greatly appreciated.
