    It Lives! TS-100 ticks again.

    This watch is 20 years old this year! Finally changed the battery just to see her working again - what a flashback!

    She needs a good cleaning and I don't have silicone oil yet, so she'll come back apart for a servicing as soon as I do. No gaskets available, so I'll reuse the old one (still in one piece) but won't test the WR capabilities I don't think.

    nice!...the shape of that bezel, especially at the bottom, reminds me of the 6100's. What is the map of the world for up top on the left???

    A world map and temperture. What more do you want on a watch? Oh yeah, time and date. lol.
    The MTG is retired and the 5600 too. Right now, the only working G-Shocks that I use and enjoy are the Riseman GW9200-1 and the GW6900-1

    If I can own a Rolex Submariner I would. I know they are tough too, their homages are tough. Trust me.

    G-Shock MTG930DA-8V, G-Shock GW-5600J-1. G-Shock Riseman GW9200-1, G-Shock GW6900-1

    I also owned one of these but lost it during a school trip nearly 23 years ago.

    To see your watch awakes old memories

    Keep it in good health

    I too lost this watch at school. It was in 1991 and was my first Casio. I always wanted to replace it but prices are too high or condition is too poor. Wear it in the best of health my friend. Ps eBay has tons of bands for this model at low prices.

    Thumbs Up Re: It Lives! TS-100 ticks again.

    I did post this in WRUW today, but I thought I'd come full circle and post the final result back here. I'm super stoked to have this one back in my active collection...I think my Gs are going to take a back seat to their lowly WR100 cousin for a couple of days .

    I sure didn't think when I bought this that it would still be around in 2012!
