    New find along the street

    I was 'again' at the watch capital of Metro Manila and while i was walking along the street to catch a jeepney ride, i noticed a couple of fake Gs in buy and sell stalls. Very funny 'coz those fakes sells for only $5, how much do they expect the buyers to buy them?? $2??

    As i went from stall to stall my eye got stucked on one intriguing G. I examined it carefully and BOOM, it's authentic! A trip to the ATM machine and a couple of haggling later it belonged to me

    The LCD says 'batt error' so i guessed it just needed a battery change. I quickly checked the internals as soon as i got home and was surpised about the 'two' batteries. From shop to shop at a mall i've finally got the batteries for less than $2 each at a Seiko shop.

    After changing the batteries the light seemed to be stucked, always on, and no numbers appeared. I quickly called the service guy from the G-Shock service center and he asked me to bring the watch over.

    The watch was shorted according to him so he fixed it and also replaced the gasket and rusted spring bars but the error code still appeared. He told me that the sensor for the alti-baro is already broken and they have no parts for it 'coz it's an old watch.

    Oh well, atleast the watch works for it's normal function and i'm happy to have this vintage model. Thanks for looking

    The internal..


    I will post more pics soon. My camera's batt empty

    deggy, I have been buying lotto tickets since it reached 150 million plus pesos ($3 million plus) everyday. So far all the best i got is one ticket bearing three numbers matched and it means one free ticket for me tonight

    Updated pics of my DW-6500.






    PS: Do any of you know if the new batteries won't last long if i just let error code appear? After the reading the pdf manual it seems that the sensors are damaged. Thanks in advance!
