My Casio DBC-62 Clean, Repair, and Restore Thread

Blaydes99 ·
Hi everyone - I recently rediscovered the Casio DBC-62 watch, a watch that I had many years ago as a kid. It has always been my favorite and I decided to purchase a used one on eBay. The watch I purchased was in surprisingly good condition even after all these years, but had several small issues I wanted to correct. I've documented the process here with pictures and my descriptions below: 1. Here's the watch - notice that the buttons are almost stuck in all the way, and the screen is pretty...

Awesome post, thank you!! I have several DBC-62s and they're great watches. I've been trying to find the made-in-Japan version of these watches but are rare... Looking forward to more of your other posts regarding the DBC family in the future!

Thanks to you both! I truly appreciate the fine work that Casio did with these watches. Kamika007z, I also have a "Made in Japan" version that I recently cleaned up in a similar fashion.

Here's a side by side (not great quality) picture of the "Made in Japan" vs. "Made in Korea" editions of the DBC-62: Notice the tiny text "JAPAN N" at the bottom of the screen, and also the difference in color behind the LCD. I also...

That's awesome, thank you for showing the side by side comparison! I had restored my friend's DBC-62 that was made in Japan and I noticed the case back stating "Made in Japan" as well as the "JAPAN N" at the bottom center but I didn't notice the difference in screen nor light. I do believe the light is green in the Japanese one and yellowish in the Korea version. Is that the actual case with your two watches?

Yes, you are correct. Here's a comparison shot of the back plate of both watches, side by side: In my case, the light looks to be about the same color (yellowish) in both watches, but the Korean version nearly lights up the whole watch screen, wherein the Japanese light only lights the left side well, and almost not the right side. I'd be curious to see the green-style light for a DBC-62 that lights the whole screen, similar to the light on the other newer DBC models. Is that what the green...

I would have to ask him and see if he can take a picture of it. I'm curious about it as well.
