    Prw6000 crown button lock not working is a good real??

    Hello fellow mates,
    I recently entered the G shock world when i bought My G9300 mudman, and i LOVE IT!
    Now i want to buy all G shocks that i see but they are a litle more expensive here in Europe (Portugal) and i don't have much money to Invest!
    Back to what is important, i was looking for a ABC watch but my wrist is too thin for the Rangeman and i discovered the Proteks wich i find the prw3100y realy cool! But now i found this DEAL:
    A prw6000 for 175 bucks, but with the Crown Button Lock not working, wich is kind of a pain!
    What i needed to know is, it is easy to fix?? And what do you guys think of the deal!

    Best regards

    If you can perform every function without the crown then should be ok, I guess. But since I didn't own one I have no idea. Either way, I woudn't buy it, what if because the faulty crown the water protection is off?

    I had for a little while the little brother, PRG 600. While it's a nice watch, if you're a heavy ABC functions user you are better off with all digital versions. I got for myself PRW-3100, new, for 195 euros or so. Plus, if you have a small wrist PRW-3100 will fit better than PRW 6000.

    I didn't thought of the water protection, but you are right, it could be a big issue!

    that thing is well worn but id take a chance on it for $1-150. id say the water resistance would still be ok as long as you didnt swim with it regularly. great watch otherwise, pretty much a slimmed down mudmaster. tho if you think the ranger is too big this one is about the same just flatter, so the 3100 is probably the better bet for smaller wrists

    From a german online shop, an add popped up showing the 3100 at down to 199 euros from 299. I grabbed it a couple of days later getting another 5% discount. But I see it's not even listed anymore, so I guess they wanted to clear the stock. This is the shop https://www.uhrcenter.de/watches/cas...outdoor-uhren/

    I don't know if buying that will work out well. There is essentially an open conduit for water ingress. Won't take much to kill the Watch, and until that time do you always want to be worrying about it. I would pass on it.
