    This thread is for firefoxzilla

    Hello firefoxzilla,

    Attached below are photos of my 5600e and my more than 16 year old 5600C, before and after the new bezel. I don't have a photo of the 5600c with the old bezel which disintegrated about 7 years ago. Many thought that I bought a new watch when they saw the 5600c with a new bezel. The first photo is my 5600e. The second Photo is the 5600c with the new bezel and the last photo is the 5600c before the new bezel. Pardon the quality of the photos, I just put the watch on the desk and started taking pictures. I will post more photos when I am able to take photos more appropriately.

    Actually some like the 5600c without the bezel more. Unfortunately I had the battery changed by a non-authorized Casio service center and a not so good watch technician. I will have that fix by an Authorized Casio service center in the future.

    Where you able to buy a gold lettered bezel? I just asked for a bezel for the 5600c, and this is what they gave me. I really thought that the bezel can't be replaced until I talked to the G-Factory salesperson last December 2007, and directed me to Time Depot. I wore the 5600c without the bezel for about 5 years. I agree we should be thankful that parts are still available here in the Philippines, there are many appliances here that after a few years parts are no longer available.

    Hope you find a new bezel for your dw 5700, I believe they are quite rare this days.

    yup, at first i just asked for a bezel and strap for a 5600c... they showed me first a white lettered bezel and a silver buckle strap... i asked if they have a gold lettered bezel and a gold buckle strap... im glad they did have 1 pair left of the gold bezel and strap...

    Only one gold bezel left. Too bad. Would like to keep one also for reserve.
