    Need a band for a g-shock 6900, but don't want to pay a crazy price

    Hi all,
    I have found replacement bands for $15.00 online but this seems quite expensive since I can buy a DW6900-1V new at amazon for forty five bucks

    Amazon.com: Casio Men's DW6900-1V G-Shock Classic Digital Watch: Casio: Watches

    This would mean an upgrade to the newer model with a brand new battery. I'm willing to pay ten bucks or less incl. shipping. Anyone out there got a source?

    Thanks.

    $15 sounds cheap to me, with the UK price over $20...
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    If you're in the USA then you can buy them from Casio directly and from what I've read - they do have the best prices on spare parts .

    Yep, that's pretty typical pricing for parts. It doesn't always make sense, but there's usually not much of a choice. I've heard of some third party G-Shocks parts that are cheaper, but the quality is apparently very poor.

    Just be glad that you can order spare parts that you want. Many older ones are discontinued and you can't buy them at any price.

    Getting a genuine Casio product is worth $20 (IMHO):

    DW6900 Black Resin Band Casio Watches and Replacement WatchBands | Casio Sales and Service

    Or $25 if you want the high gloss and a metal buckel:

    DW6900CS Casio Black Resin Band Casio Watches and Replacement WatchBands | Casio Sales and Service

    Otherwise, spend the $45 and get another 6900-1V -- that way you'll have an extra bezel too.

    Head down to your local big box store and check out the Speidel selection. They've probably got something for $7.99 that will work if you're not willing to spring for the original Casio part.
