    Will it rise again??

    Just a little pickup from Ebay yesterday.

    I like these "dead", (hopefully it will be the battery and not a dead module), solars.

    I'm assuming the resins are easy enough to get hold of, never bought for this model before.

    I got it on Best Offer at £22 with free shipping from Lithuania.

    A couple of the seller's photos:

    You would know the answer in a couple of days.

    If everything goes well, the LCD screen should start showing some segments, then the complete digits.

    Yeah, I actually tried to make my thread title a bit rhetoric.

    I'm well aware of how to get these supposedly dead solar watches going again, cheers Ivt

    I love finding solars that aren't running!!

    Hopefully the seller's description of "turned off and do not work" just means that the battery needs a charge!
