    My DW9052.. Thanks Bogeyman!

    Sorry to bore you again with another story but i'm just so happy how this watch turned out.

    I won this over Ebay.ph a couple of weeks ago but when the watch arrived, i was surprise to see that the bezel was cracked and broken into pieces and the strap was missing a buckle. What would you expect for a $6 watch?

    I immediately called our local AD to order a bezel for the 9052 but they ran out of stock and said they have to order it from Japan and it'll take about three months for it to arrive. So i just changed the battery and was glad that the watch worked and just kept it in the drawer while i was busy looking for other Gs.

    The other day i remebered that Bogeyman, who is from Manila aswell, just changed his bezel for his DW9051. I quickly PM'd him and asked if he still has it and he said luckily he didn't throw it away yet. We texted and scheduled a meet up for earlier today and he just 'gave' it to me. Coolness!

    Thank you so much Bogeyman, you have helped me in resurrecting my DW9052 and now i could use it as a daily beater together with my DW-069!

    The arrival of my $6 DW-9052..


    Notice the cracks on the bezel..


    Few mins. upon arrival..


    DW-9051 bezel from Bogeyman, Thanks bro!


    Assembled! I used my DW-6000's straps 'coz i like it more than the regular one.


    Didn't come with the strap holder.. Is it what it's called? Rubber band to the rescue!


    Thanks for looking guys!


    P.S. I don't know what's with me but i tend to like wearing my used Gs more than my 'brand new bought' ones

    You're very much welcome. Glad to see you were able to put my previous bezel to good use.

    My main concern was that the bezel might disintegrate altogether if it were to be 'forced' again on another watch; it felt so brittle and fragile that even I was scared to handle it myself. I couldn't charge him anything, even if he was offering to pay for it, since it would have been a shame for me to make money off of such a battered piece.

    I was cleaning it this morning when I noticed it had already split between the top and bottom left button housings (you can see it on the 5th photo). Worried that it wouldn't reach jkchua in one piece, I quickly applied cyanoacrylate glue (Loctite Super Glue) to close the gap. I have no idea what effect it will eventually have on the resin, but I'm just relieved that the impromptu fix lets him use the bezel in the meantime.

    Nice work, John!

    Bogeyman, No worries bro. I'll be taking care of this bezel 'til i get a new one. It'll be a bit weird not being able to take this to the shower or wash it up during a sweaty day's wear. Thanks again bro.

    kiwidj, I've been wearing it since i assembled it a couple of hours ago. I love the look with the DW6000's straps with it. Thanks bro.

    You now have a '52 wearing a '51 bezel, while I have a '51 wearing a '52 bezel.

    Life's funny like that.

    very nice!
    So when is the next meet-up guys? San Mig wristshots anyone???

    And since Bogey calls his 9051 as 9051-and-a-half because of the 9052 bezel, how would you call yours jkchua???
