Default Casio DW-8300 "Stargate" back from the dead: Restoration/MOD project

[table][tr][td][center][table][tr][td]
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.
Enough talking:

That's the NOS case as I got it, a former dust collector

[img]

Two back plate screws are missing, not a deal breaker [img]

[img]

Opened up, it looks virgin

[img]

No gasket? That's not good...

[img]

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)

[img]

I managed to get gaskets and and an OEM strap (20mm lugs, cool)

[img]

Closed back, After some brushing and silicon

[img]

With strap

[img]

On the wrist, and with those strap "wings", this thing is a monster

[img]

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

[img]


That's that, thanks for looking
