    Question about 5600 cases, please help

    Well i was welding today at work, and slag hit my gw5600 glass, and it melted a few tiny holes, which is beat because i just got it 2 days ago. I was wondering if a dw5600 watch case is the same size. Like if i bought one, i could swap the internal module or not. Im not sure because of the dw's atomic antenna and such. If i did do that, i would just use the dw as my work watch with the holes in the glass, and the dw for everything else.

    Another option is sending it into casio for repair, but i do not know how much that would run me price wise. Thankyou to whomever responds.

    Sorry to read about what happened to your watch.

    The bezels of the DW5600 and the GW5600 are different, so it is not possible to swap them.

    I wouldn't recommend to wear a watch while you're welding. May be you could put yours in a pocket when welding?

    hehe yeah, well i was in a tight spot in the car, building a turbo downpipe, pieces all lined up, with the welder in the left hand, not wearing gloves. I went to tack weld it not thinking about anything, and then discovered what i did. I USUALLY wear gloves that go halfway up my forearm, but not this time.... :(
