    Spare housing for DW-9350 Raysman

    Hi WUSlian's,


    Since the purchase of my new RAF 1000 & GA 201, I decided to do a little dig around the web only to find myself on this website every time. So now I've registered and gone to the trouble of editing my avatar and signature picture, I hope to become a long term visitor to this site. Besides I needs an outlet to my craziness for watches, I'm losing friends as I buy new timepieces!!!


    I've had the DW-9350 for many years, since modifying the internal bezel with gold pen (I was young, don't judge) I realized that stripped the plastic housing and it can no longer hold the screws very tightly. I was wondering if anyone can help me find a new housing and strap for this model? I've kept my eye on ebay and the closest option is to buy a complete watch to overhaul this one :/...


    Thanks in advance,

    Derek.

    A case center for the Raysman is nearly impossible to find these days. Your best chance is to look for another DW-9350.

    Hi mate, welcome to the madness. Have you tried repairing, I remember reading somewhere that stripped threads can be repaired by filling the hole with a mixture of either superglue or araldite with fine sawdust and then inserting the screw.

    Thanks anxiety,

    I have thought about doing that but I'm not sure how successful it would be on keeping the screws tight. I think I'm going to call Casio uk and mail it in. The watch has sentimental values.

    With a discontinued watch you "risk" getting a replacement from Casio. While this might be ok for the "usual" watch buyer who just wants a wortking timepiece (and eventually might be happy to get a current model) it is not the desired outcome for someone who collects watches or whose watch has a certain sentimental value.
    I´d try a repair myself and keep the watch as a collectors piece, i guess.
