Wanted to share my good luck with you people, after finding two DW's on the flea market today,
and maybe i'll pass on some of this good luck to you all.
Well, I went to pick up my children from school, and on the way back (bicycle) we stopped for a few minutes
at one of the local FM.
I spotted the two with in 5 minutes, and took them without thinking twice.
Here are some pics:
Those are the two - a "Japan M" DW6900G-V1 and a DW5600C
Bezels/straps are in bad shape, both dead, 5600 crystal is broken
The 5600's Case, Push buttons, Caseback & module are in great shape
The 6900 isn't bad too
I need to take the module and inner panel and clean this misty crystal from the inside...
BUT... after some cleaning with water and soap, both bezels disintegrated
Never mind, the 5600 will have to wait for a new crystal
(I wonder if there are any left in this world )
and I think a 6900 bezel and strap can still be found
Let's lubricate those gaskets and pop new batteries in, see if they fire up
The 6900 was still dead with a new 2016, but after I shorted the AC it fired!
The 5600 woke up with no issues, the panel is so clear!
I'll try the 6900 today, with no bezel. It's the first 6900 I have
(It's a 16 mm Casio strap)
So, that's it.
Thanks for looking and have a nice WE
