    A wrist veteran

    Just browsing the 'Bay and noticed this old soldier for sale: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Casio-G-SHOCK-...QQcmdZViewItem

    The listing says it is a DW-5200, very rare but not in the best shape, this watch does not interest me but I was wondering if it could be repaired and brought back to its former glory?
    Also what sort of price would a G like this usually go for?
    Thanks in advance

    Is it possible to restore that watch? If you get it azziman I would like to see the final product.

    That project is a little too large for me lockwood, I wouldn't mind seeing the finished result myself though.

    That watch looks like it lost a fight with a lawn mower! Geez..I think it's a lost cause, I'm surprised they are trying to sell it.

    The current bid is the maximum I think, without verifying that the module works. The crystal is in pretty good condition though.

    Usually this model sells for 200-300 usd working, without bezel or strap. I paid 150 for mine but it has a few scratches on the crystal. You can see my restored model on this page.

    The bezel and strap can be found on ebay quite easily as that model shares these bits with several other vintage G-Shocks.

    There's another one here

    with a fairly scratched crystal which will go for a lot less.

    cheers,

    Actually, that's a DW-5200C-9 in the first auction. It's the 'gold' 5200 so if it sells for 200 bucks the winner will get quite a deal. That model should sell for $350+.

    Quite right casiophile. Too much of a rush to look properly

    cheers,

    cheers,
    No worries...almost missed it myself. Shame the seller didn't clean it up and install a new bezel. Then we'd see some bidding action...

    I'd have a go but the module is a bit of a concern. The 240 is not that common unless you have a donor watch. Case and crystal look ok though.
    hmm...
