    Received a first model DW-5000C-1A today and original bezel & strap ...

    The bezel has started to crumble at the bottom and I am afraid if I try to remove the screws the bezel will simply fall apart. It is definitely the best example of the three I own in terms of condition of the module, face etc. . Just wondering if you think I should just take the bezel off and put a replacement Casio bezel on or just not wear it and keep as much of it intact as possible? Any Ideas -Ronbo

    I say go for it.
    You'll have to at some point, so as long as you're careful I think you should give it a try.
    Think of how really cool the end result will be

    Regarding bezel replacement, I use this method...

    I've had excellent success with the replacement of the bezel by not removing the bezel screws. As most know, those screws are prone to breaking off during removal. For me, it is much easier to place a tiny drop of oil on each bezel screw head and wait a few minutes. The old bezel should then pull off the case and over the bezel screwheads with no problem. The new bezel usually goes back on easily by lining up the bezel with the corresponding buttons, and pushing the bezel screw holes over the screwheads with your thumb; should just pop back on.

    Also, this would be a great time to source a new band for it, and R&R the battery and caseback O-ring.

    I also have sucess by using WD40 on the screws . A drop and leave it overnight then
    unscrew.
