    Place for parts in Europe.....

    Hi

    After some bad experience with tiktox, that I will not dwell on anymore, I am looking for other places to buy g shock parts in Europe.

    I have only found watchbattery, a shop in the UK, with limited stock.

    Any other places?

    Pacparts are not relevant to me as taxes on import outside Europe are very high for me.

    Thanks
    Michael

    Recently i had a friend who like many people used TikTox when it was reliable company to use. Then it went down the drain. He hasn't used them for around a year but he recently got a vintage DW5600EG-9V, and TikTox was the only place that had the band and bezel in with the gold lettering and buckles. So he took a chance and with in 4 days he had the band and bezel he required. And has ordered since successfully.

    His experience before that, he ordered around £80 worth of stuff and had to go through PayPal to get his money back due to them not sending most of what he ordered. The bits they did send were wrong and had to send them back. But if your still unsure Ebay or Amazon.

    I never got my items or money back...

    They send the wrong stuff and then cut communication.
    This was 2 months app. Ago... They haven't improved at all.

    So I do my business elsewhere, but off course I know some people are more lucky.

    Re: Place for parts in Europe.....

    I don't blame you if that's the situation mate, i have never personally used them only heard stories of how good they were before the previous owner passed away. But i just thought i would let you know, as i say he avoided them for around a year before feeling brave, I think if he could of got them from any where else at that price he would of.

    That leaves Ebay Amazon, where abouts are you and what are you after?

    I'm in Denmark, and I am looking for a bezel for a glx5600 and maybe some band and adaptors.

    Nothing fancy I can get it from watchbattery I think... But I am thinking more long-term for harder to get items.

    I will keep eBay and Amazon in mind though.

    Thanks

    I don't want to sound too patronising but what exactly is the issue with buying from Casio UK or your national Casio parts department? It's what it's there for. Resellers tend to charge over the odds and often won't have the stuff in stock anyway. I only ever buy from Casio UK. A lot of ppl in Europe seem to buy from a well known reseller in the US, primarily because they loiter on US watch forums like this, and effectively pay double import charges and it makes no sense to me at all. I think many people are fixated on buying from on line retailers. If you are buying parts for a Casio then you can wait the weeks it takes for the parts to come from Japan to your local Casio parts department. It's not a big deal. I certainly hope members of this forum aren't still buying from Tik Tox after all the bad feedback and general whinging here. Even in Tik Tox's heyday, they were always overpriced on parts and accessories, but sometimes had good deals on new watches.
