My collection

Hello forum friends. I'm new here and beyond the discussion of al-180 could also share my experiences with CASIO to you.
I am creating this post to show my collection, however small, for you and if anyone has any questions about the details of any particular watch, do not hesitate to ask.
Some of them acquired during my life. Some managed to buy today. Some bought now realize the dream of my youth that could not be done by not reach financially. In fact all of them at some time has been part of my life story, or shop window or being purchased by me at the time.

 

Thank You.

Original Post

Hi robesauer !

 

I know what you're feeling, because I had the same problems with my watches.

It happens that most of watchmakers making the polish with the use of rotating machinery and these axle promote glass heating and heating causes blistering and staining on the glass screen printing. There is thus the possibility of crack op glass if the watchmaker're not careful.

After a while I found on ebay a seller who did the manual polishing, using no machine. He is American and very experienced and skillful. I bought 2 watches of him. One of the watches was polished by him by hand. The service was perfect. I asked him about it and he explained that the service of him is 100% manual polishing. It give a lot of work, but if the person is skilled and patient polishing is perfect, without bubbles, without risk of breaking the glass, without blemish.

As I have much affection for my watches I learned to do this kind of polishing and really is very good service.

But look, about your DW-5600C, there is no way around this problem that occurred after polishing. The screen printing was stained and blistered from the heat generated in the polishing.

I advise you to get another case of a DW-5600C that is in perfect condition. On ebay always has cases and parts of this watch for sale.

If you want to know about the manual polishing of glass, tell me that I give you further instructions, ok?

There is no watchmaker to do that.

I know only one American who does this service manual very perfectly. His name is Robert Caron (kung-fusion on ebay). This guy is a genius! 

Thank you for the tips. But unfortunately, as I live in Brazil is difficult to logistics to perform this restoration. I can do a good manual polishing too with sands and diamond wax. But I used a machine to try to polish the stainless and ended up ruining the glass. Really bad, bad idea.

Robesauer, you can solve this problem here in Brazil.

 

Do you know Dirceu?

 

Dirceu live in Praia Grande - SP and he has several parts of old G-Shocks. You can see it with him, right?

 

I think that an excellent case of DW-5600C costs about 15 usd (50 reais).

 

Anything you tell me, ok?

Well, I just bought two complete watches in the bay. Let's wait and see what will happen.

When they get here show the information of the recovery work.

I bought a lot with a silver dw5600c module 691 and the old model DW6900. And a dw5200 silver.

With what I bought and the parts that I have I could assemble 3 gshocks.

Well. The first piece arrived. The DW5200 is in excellent condition. Only two crooked buttons, but I have the buttons for replacement. Not reached the DW5600c yet. This will get harder to fix. Your cristal is scratched.

 

Here is a photo before the cleaning and fixing process. After the process i will post new photos.

 

Well friends. I am bringing the results of 3 restorations performed this weekend.

 

The DW5200 hero.
I preferred to leave the glass as it is and do not make the polishing. Only a small scratch on top. Does not hurt. I left original.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The DW6900 came from the year 1995. It was perfect. Only was poorly assembled. Put a beep contact spring on the rear .
I made a good clean and everything was good. It has a small tear on the blue letters but nothing noticeable.

 

 

 

 

Believe to be successful restorations.
Lack only get bezel and new bracelets for them.
When are complete I will post the pictures.

Hello Robesauer !

 

Look, some part of your text is in Portuguese. 

I understand what you wrote, but the most here do not.

The members of PCS Forum will not understand and we will claim of it. If you can re-edit all your text to English would be perfect for all, ok ?

Look, your work was very good. Both the DW-5200 as the DW-6900 were perfect after your work.

Wooooow!!!! Copy of the wrong side of Google Translator!!! I speak a little English but use google to ensure that write correctly. Sorry!! 

What you think about the 5600c? I tried this body but still has some imperfections. It is almost impossible now to get a body with glass without bubbles.! I need to polish more. The glass have a little dots in the surface.

And thanks for the warning!! I am glad that it was you who saw it first....

Ok

 

Well, about DW-5600C you can not to do anything about the bubbles in printing of crystal. The correct would you to buy a case with the same condition that the DW-5200. You can remove scratches (if the polishing is made with very carefully), but bubbles is very difficult eliminate them. Here in Brazil you can get this case (DW-5600C) in very good condition.

The module it must be working perfectly too, right?

The module is perfect. After a correct mount and a new battery 2320 it was perfect.

All functions include 30 minutes bip. I always wanted this watch because the beep every half hour

lol

 

These old casio modules were famous because of the beep every half hour.

Like to the 240 module, I think with the loudest alarm are 248 and 106 (both casio marlin).

The marlin's are very special watches.

We like to collect casios, but these vintage ones are expensive and difficult to obtain in good conditions. Personally I do not have a safe place to accommodate those who have. Should I stop my collection after these I acquired ..

My ultimate goal is to achieve 5600c box. Because it was the 5200. But if one still appear in good condition will try to get. Although I'm satisfied with what I got, I'll keep looking around, but with more patience.

 

Marlins in excellent condition are expensive, but on ebay always appears some sellers with great prices. You need wait for good opportunities on ebay. Marlins are resistent and beautiful watches. 

I like the marlins and I have a nice collection of them.
Here in Brazil is a sadness to buy items from abroad because it takes a lot of time for us to receive any order. 

I am to receive a spring bars from Germany to my younger DW-3000. When it arrives here I'll post pictures of my complete collection.

Do you have information about this? Something like photos? Thank's!!!

Good work of Adam and a great idea too !

 

Robesauer, here in Brazil you find this clear varnish in spray form of Colorgin brand.

 

Here:

 

http://produto.mercadolivre.co...l-verniz-incolor-_JM

 

I advise caution when applying the product on the glass screen printing. Do not spray directly on the printing. Use a small brush. Apply a small amount without rubbing, but in order to make the liquid "to force (push)" the part of the bubble with screen printing in order to go against the crystal.

 

Very good idea. I tried doing this a while back with automotive lacquer in an old box but did not work because it was very dense. Does this paint will adhere well to the surface and will not yellow over time?

I have the problem that the 2 small bubbles that have the box is not connected with the crystal edges. I thought of polishing the glass on the rotating machine to release all screen printing and then fills completely. What do you think? it's very dangerous? I will do this test in the old box and see what will happen.

In part that has the piezoelectric often get stuck in the glass

I used clear spray car lacquer sprayed into the paint top the added from there. The liquid was very loose and did exactly what I wanted it to. As for yellowing I dont know(maybe in years). But its better than losing all the graphics if it seals and stabilises what is there now.

 

good luck Adam

The clear lacquer spray is enough liquid (not so dense) and able to flow between printing and crystal and to dry, so that there is adhesion between the parties.

 

I have this spray here at home (decor colorgin varnish) and this varnish is very thin (like a alcohol), transparent and quick drying.

 

I never tested this varnish to eliminate bubbles in printing of watches, but I will soon test in any case with crystal that have bubbles to see how it works.

You could you please spray some glass and after drying, scratch with your fingernail on him to see the resistance? I also found a varnish called transparent stained glass that adheres very well on the glass and is also well liquid. I'm testing it here in a glass cup and see if adheres well.
