Casio DW-8300 "Stargate" back from the dead: Restoration/MOD project
I went into a messy repair lab, the guy fixes calculators and other Casio products.
Oh yes, and watches [img]
I look at the counter, ond on it - a DW8300 NOS case, lying around like a piece of junk.
one minute later it's mine, after paying the equivalent of a 5600 strap and bezel [img]
He didn't have a 1288 module or 8300 strap so I will have to get these elsewhere.
That's the NOS case as I got it, a former dust collector
Two back plate screws are missing, not a deal breaker [img]
Opened up, it looks virgin
No gasket? That's not good...
I didn't have a 1288 module, so in the meantime I'll put a 1000 mudule I have
(Led light, no EL, but it has DT)
I managed to get gaskets and and an OEM strap (20mm lugs, cool)
Closed back, After some brushing and silicon
On the wrist, and with those strap "wings", this thing is a monster
It's a beauty, I just don't see how can I leave the house with this on my hand, looks a bit like the real version of a cartoon watch
That's that, thanks for looking
