I went into a messy repair lab, the guy fixes calculators and other Casio products.
Oh yes, and watches
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

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

Opened up, it looks virgin

[img]

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

With strap

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

That's that, thanks for looking
