Hello everyone. This is my first post here although I've visited many times and enjoyed reading all the posts from fellow G-Shock Lovers.

I post today because my beloved DW-5700 has finally lost all its skin, crumbled and disintegrated and no longer able to hold on to its magnificent frame. i am sad and very, very disheartened.

So, could someone please tell how to get a new bezel for my precious or what replacement I can get to have it on my wrist again? All your help and sympathy would be appreciated.

Thanks :-(

I don't know where to find replacement parts, but I do hope you find them. The poor thing looks in desperate need of some TLC. ;-)

Someone here should be able to connect you to the right people to get a new bezel and band for your DW-5700. It looks like it's all in really good shape though and a new bezel/band combo should make that G last forever!

That's one of my favorite things about the G-Shocks is that you can replace the bezel and band so easily and literally add years to the life of the watch. You can't do that with a Timex!

Finding a replacement bezel for the 5700 may be tough though not impossible. While you look here's a suggestion: buy a 5600 bezel. The DW-5600C bezel and bands will fit perfectly.

Be careful of the bezel screws; if you've never had them off they may be near impossible to remove and breaking one off in the case is not something you want to do. If you're concerned you can leave them on and fit the new bezel over the screws - just ream out the screw holes with a knife a little bit and the new bezel will fit nicely.

Anybody have a source for a DW-5300 bezel? People talk about their grail watches..... this has got to be my personal grail. Haven't seen one for offer since my 5300 lost its bezel many ages ago. :-(

Hi,
I just got a NOS one from mr.casio* on Ebay. The man after that nickname is a well known member of this forum from Brazil. I can't wait to get mine and fit it onto my DW-5700C-1V....

Thank you everyone, this is a wonderful community of helpful people. I will buy the band as suggested from 'vbeme', but will also look out for an original bezel (would appreciate a link if someone has it to a seller).

Will keep you all posted on its rebirth if I am successful :-!

Here you have the link to my purchase:

... And please, do not get the 5600 bezel. although it fits the case it just doesn't look right due to the 5700's display outline.
Good luck!

Good luck, I'm sorry to say I have been trying to obtain one of these for about 3yrs. There are just none to be had. Back when I wanted to purchase one from Mr. casio he wanted $90.00 for it. Glad to see the price went down on the last one. I think your only option is a 5600 bezel with gold lettering. One of the forum members did this not too long ago, but I can't remember which one. I'm thinking maybe kpatt. But I could be wrong. It looks good, but I can't do it because my 5700 has a permanant mark on the crystal where the old bezel was and it sticks out like a sore thumb. good luck.

No sympathy from me. I like that watch. :p:p:p:p:p:p:p:p:p:p

Not as good as the version with the 2320 battery, but still good.

Ok, update... I've ordered the 5600 bezel/strap from vbeme as suggested to tide me over and also a nice person here is helping me to find a 5700 bezel (you know who you are Sir, thank you :-!).

Thanks again everyone for the help and good advice.
