New Member, referred from another board when I had a question about My old G-shock.
Thanks in advance.
I've got an old DW-5700 that has had several batteries replaced, yet never had the seals replaced. I'm in no condition to dive with it, and the shop wants $40 just to open the back. I've already bought a pin vise to remove the back, and figured it out after a strugle.
The watch still works, but the buttons are getting harder to push.
Is it worth getting watch fixed, or should I buy a new G-shock?
Also, I've got a Casio ATC-1200 which hasn't worked in several years. Took it to Wally World to have battery replaced, and they put the case on backwards, which resulted in water inside the case. They sent it off to TimeMasters who "fixed" it - yet 30 days later it was dead again. Wally World claimed the extent of their liablity was to send it to TimeMasters, who claimed it was working when it left their shop (it was) but the battery is supposed to last years.
It's been sitting in my desk drawer for several years since replacing the battery didn't solve the problem.
