Yes really. Mine also used to be like yours two years ago.
It depends on usage too, I think. And how much it's charged sufficiently. So I have to disagree with you. There is no specific 12-year battery longevity duration, from official Casio sources or other GW-5000 owners. That case is exclusive to you.

My 23 years old Raysman bought in 1998 for my PADI says we should worry about resin rotting before battery dying.
She was kept in the dark since her last picture... Hence the low battery.

Raysman runs on Panasonic ML2020 which delivers 3V of tension.

My GMW-b5000 like your GW5000 relies on a CTL1616 which delivers 2.3 Volts.

Weird. My GW-5000 just died after about 8 years of ownership. Pretty sure it's the battery.

Put it in bright sunlight for multiple days, did not help.

Ordered a CTL1616 today. Will report back with results when they come in.

That sucks. Mine is the same age as yours. Keep me updated on the process; I may swap the battery in myself. Are you going to replace the gasket too?

I wasn't planning on it. I'll probably just lube the old one. Do you think I should replace it?
I鈥檓 not an expert on g-shock maintenance, but if you can find a new seal it may be better to replace if you鈥檙e going to open it up and change the battery. I鈥檝e only ever changed the battery on a 5600e and replaced its case back gasket, so hopefully more seasoned folks can chime in. Opening up a Gw-5000 screw back makes me a little more anxious

Probably fine with the old if the gasket looks good and just needs a new application of silicone grease.

Different battery and different circuitry.
oh, so your grievance is with the watch specifically?
i also have a prg131 from 2009 and a pag240 from 2010 both same battery but of course "different circuitry" lol theyve never skipped a beat either and i havent looked after them much at all

i'll have to bookmark this post and post back here in a couple years as well 馃憤

He didn't post a grievance.... he posted his experience with his watch.
