    Restoring and repairing one of my DW-9000

    I bought this DW-9000 in bad conditions two years ago and after some purchases of spares for it I could restore and repair it.

    looks pretty nice, but how much did you spend on the new clothes?

    Very nice work, elmilto. Wow, you sure paid a lot on the parts. The bezel is still available from CASIO but I think the band has been discontinued and is hard to find. Ultimately, the best way to look at it is as though you've basically bought a nearly new DW-9000 for the price of the parts. Not bad actually.

    I dont think you spent alot on the parts. To think about it you can get a GShock 5900 new for 90 dollars which is similar I think. If a watch has any sentimental value its normal to spend money on it. I think $60 is inexpensive and it turned out really well, good job on the restore.

    I heard it costs thousands and thousands to restore an old Patek. I know of someone that did. I think for that money I would just buy a new one or consider other watches. $60 bucks is nothing

    Since I found out this model a few months ago, I keep thinking can this model use 6900's bezel?
    I read somewhere that a model can use 6900's bezel, but I forget which model.
