    My cheapest G is a DW 9000 - what´s yours?

    Hello once more peeps.

    I thought it would be interesting (for me anyway), to find out what G-bargains people have bought.

    Mine is the DW 9000 shown below, it cost me the princely sum of 99p from a local charity shop about seven years ago. The battery was dead, and it was soooooo grimey that it should really have been sealed in a plastic bag marked 'Biological Hazard' then given to the appropriate authorities for safe disposal......

    As was (is) my way, I bought it and threw it in a drawer to have a look at later.......I hasten to add that this was before I became bitten by the G-bug.

    Anyway, I rediscovered it a couple of weeks ago whilst sorting out some boxes of junk and I decided to thoroughly clean / decontaminate it and fit a new battery. Not surprisingly, it worked perfectly.

    To finish things off I retouched the bezel text with some of my wife´s silver nail varnish, polished some minor scratching out of the crystal with my Dremel and some T-Cut, polished the very badly scratched caseback with progressively finer grades of Wet & Dry paper, then made a webbing strap keeper to replace the perished original.

    It was not a complex or intensive / expensive restoration project, but for a total of about 3.00 GBP I am very pleased with the result.

    Wow... nice work. Looks like a brandnew watch and not a job for a biohazard-team

    I got a DW002 and a DW5600E on eBay for $26. I did pay $15 more for shipping, but still a good deal considering the 002 was in near flawless condition and the 5600 was only missing the strap keeper. I only bid on it because i wanted the black bezel off the 002 to repair another watch. I then picked up another 002 that was not in as good of shape and painted the bezel and put it on the first. Here's what my $26 + shipping pair look like now:

    I got an unworn DW-003TB for 7,50€ and a NIB DW-5000SL for 37,01€. I consider particularly the latter one to have been major luck.
