This time is "hero" watch which saves g-shock production line from extinction.
Looking good with minor scratches on mineral glass, comes with discolored bezel and original replacement band.
Perform brief cleaning with 70% alcohol. Rust is observable on bezel screws end, and I dare not attempt to remove by force, sometimes it is good to keep it the way it looks, don't you agree?
I replace all rubber seals from a DW5600E. These pushbuttons from DW-5200 can be inter-switched between DW5600E, except for the "adjust" pushbutton which is smaller than DW5600E.
Then I submerge in water to see if waterproof is still applicable to the watch. 10 minutes passed, no sign of water seen in the watch.
Finally, DW-5200 in its brazillian bezel & band look:
There is one more thing, I use sand papers try to remove scratches from the mineral glass, and results are terrible--> even more scratches.
Can somebody please share what type of abrasives are suitable to remove scratches from this watch? Thank you.
