    I am not completely sure about what you're asking here, as you got a model reference wrong. "G-5700" is a tough solar watch. This was a reissue of the original "DW-5700", which was not solar.

    CASIO is peculiar about casing sizes and sometimes makes very minor changes that inhibit compatibility. For example, the DW-6900 bezel cannot fit on the GW-6900 (and vice versa).

    However, the G-5700 looks remarkably close to the DW-5700 in sizing. So, I see your first photo is showing a very beat up G-5700. Your second photo shows a DW-5700. Would a DW-5700 bezel fit on a G-5700? Quite possibly. The only problem I can see is that the labels are different, most notably "LIGHT" (on the top right with the G-5700 and lower right with the DW-5700). But if you stealth the bezel by removing the paint on the size labels, then it's not as noticeable.

    Well, here's what I know about DW-5700s. The original DW-5700C used a DW-5600C screwback case. The reissue DW-5700s used a reissue DW-5000 screwback case. You can put a DW-5000 bezel on a reissue DW-5700 (turn a round into a square). But, I have no clue about the resin case version, maybe a 5600 bezel will fit. Bottom line though, 5700 resin is difficult to find and generally expensive. Some of us that have 5700s in need of resin are hoping for a 30th anniversary version to make bezels available again.

    I got both and the non solar bezel WON'T fit the solar one. Not only because sizes are different but the position of the buttons are also different. That dw5700 bezel is quite hard to find... careful with it....GOOD LUCK...

    Wow... yet another example of how CASIO tends to disregard the tooling of a previous model. I wonder if that's because they discard or melt it down? Circuitry keeps getting smaller, so I don't buy how additional functionality would necessitate having to increase or change the casing size/dimensions/proportions.

    Anyway, I periodically see old DW-5700 modules without bezels for sale. I'd keep that bezel for a future DW-5700.
