Pac.parts (and their contractors) don't break any land speed records delivering bezel screws. I had to call the pac.parts repr to inquire where my bezl screws were?
Rep assures me bezel screws are on back order. I reminded him of the email saying they were on the way on 22 Oct. How can they be on the way if they were on back
order? Rep says to hold on they arent on back order, and would be shipped 29 Oct. Tracking informs me parts were out for delivery yesterday. No parts arrived
yesterday. Whatta train wreck it has been getting 4 small pac.parts items. Not to mention Amazon's price of $28.95 per screw + shipping.

Lol, disregard.
What I wanted to ask was is there any way to buy modules separately? Haven't seen any but I'm new to modding.

Anyway looking for a dw6900 module and and one for gd350. I may be able to work a trade depending.

PacParts recently re-added vintage square bezel screws available for purchase. Part number has not changed (74263948).

https://www.pacparts.com/part.cfm?part_no=74263948&mfg=Casio

Also available and have been for some time are genuine vintage square straps, but only in the gold buckle variant (70360128).

https://www.pacparts.com/part.cfm?part_no=70360128&mfg=Casio





The rear O-ring is also still available (72045696).

https://www.pacparts.com/part.cfm?part_no=72045696&mfg=Casio

Finally, the available washer part (72041011) is the tiny metal washer that is part of the button assembly. It is NOT the rubber cushion between the module and the case back.

----------

The newly re-added vintage square bezel screws are indeed the correct ones for DW-5000C-1A, DW-5200, DW-5600C-1V, et al.

How do I know?
I ordered some and then did a bezel screw comparison between bezel screws from a DW-5600E-1V, existing vintage bezel screws I already had on hand, and the newly acquired vintage bezel screws from PacParts.
See below for some pics of this comparison.

Left to right in the following 4 pics: DW-5600E-1V // Vintage square bezel screw from PacParts // Vintage bezel screw already on hand








As a final test of the newly acquired vintage bezel screws from PacParts, I installed them into a DW-5600C-1V case without incident.

For all the vintage square (and 5400/5700) restorers out there, hope this helps!

GShock fans:
Perhaps this isn't the proper form for this issue. But here goes
Bought a Casio GW7900 from a seller on Flea Bay.
It arrived missing 2 bezel screws (actually plugs). I queried the
Zon. Unbelieveably they were asking $28.95 each (more than
the cost of the watch BTW)
Checked PacParts and screws were $2.50 thru a sub contractor.

Order 2 + 2 spares. SI Mark has a GW7900 too so I gave him a
replacement screw/plug.

I dipped all 3 in Super Glue and mounted them. They're tighter'n
the bark on a tree now. Going no where. Seemingly the bezel screw
loss is a problem on the GW7900.

I am now missing all 4 on mine but, it is my watch I wear around my shop. Thanks for giving me the motivation to finally get it back in tip-top shape.

How is the best way to store these new spare resin straps/bezels and o rings? I have a few spare and wonder where to keep them. Should they be near one of those crystal packs that prevent moisture or will they cause them to dry out. Or am I over thinking it and should just throw them in a drawer in their packaging.

Thanks for this!
If only I had seen this sooner, I paid $15 (including shipping) from japan for one screw which just arrived.
I guess casio japan made a whole load of screws during the refurbishment program for the DW-5000C and DW-5600C and now decided to sell them.

so it looks like the new "vintage" screws have a slightly flatter head compared to the original vintage ones

I hope the longer time goes on, there will still be availability of replacement screws. Glad you found some.
I am looking for a black steel bezel for a GWN 1000 ( Gulfmaster ). I have seen a couple on ebay but hoping that there are other parts sources for these watches.
