    Question for DW-003 experts / parts experts

    i've been after this model for awhile. i picked it up on ebay for $20.50.
    but it's missing the resin backplate and side screws.
    there is also a red stain on the strap (either ketchup or dried blood i think )

    since its such a good price. should i send it back for a refund, or keep it and try to find the parts?
    anybody know where to find a backplate and the side screws?

    thanks for viewing! pictures below.

    Yes, it might take a little while, but I think it's more rewarding when it takes a bit more time and effort.

    I don't know of anyone with these parts, but I'm sure you can find them through the usual Japanese sources. It might take a little while to get a good deal, but that's just how it goes.

    thanks for the wonderful replies! i just got a response from the seller:

    Hi I am not sure what happened there, I think when my husband
    but the new battery in may have forget to put the piece back in,
    so if you return the watch I can add the piece for you no worries.
    sorry about that


    so i guess everything is ok. but i had to ask her just to mail it to me. i dont want to send it back just so he can botch something else

    Good work! That's a very nice piece, a bit of a clean once you get the back put in and you will have a looking like new beauty of a dw-003.
