I got this last night. Its a vintage DW-5600C-9V with gold detailing from 1987. Its hard to believe this watch is now 20 years old...Other than a couple of faint scratches on the crystal, its in near mint condition
I was itching to start on it straight away as I already had a new belt and bezel to go on. I gave it a good clean then very careful started to remove the four infamous screws... Three came out quite easily but one wouldn't move (sound familiar). I'm sure some of you know this already but sometimes it helps if you tighten rather than unscrew first. I did this a couple of times and out it came.
No broken screws and no need for the hair dryer!!!
All that was needed then was a bit of metal polish on the case back and it came up looking like new again.
Fitting the belt and bezel was simple and as you can see from the photos, it looks great
I've got lots of cool limited editions that I'm just too scared to wear... This one is different. Its survived 20 years with only a few scratches so its going to see lots of wrist time with me.
Its not going to live in a box
Enjoy the pics.
