Hey there,

i am owner of a GW-5600BC with metal strap.

i search now for a couple of days for a special part. inside the buckle there are 2 small springs (about 8mm long and 0,9mm wide). where can i get those? when i was buying the watch, one of the springs was missing :-(

hope somebody can help me xxx993403b6-a1db-4921-91af-1fcea6b94abd.jpg xxx20160209001953.jpg

I dont think that you can source this spring as a spare from Casio.

But you can try to use our usual forum workaround for missing tiny springs:
Try to use the spring out of a spring bar.

You should source some springbars anyway since the one on your photo looks bended! ;-)

hi,


ive got some experience with these kind of repairs and they usually dont hold that long. see if you can find a complete clasp for the bracelet is my advice...

Good luck

i see :-(

does anyone know the exact size of the spring bars which i need?

for the Watch:
16mm
For use as spare: try an average one like 20mm, you can shorten the spring later if you like.
If you buy new 16mm, you can sacrifice the old bended ones for a spare. ;-)

If you buy new spring bars for donating the spring:
There are 2 different diameters, try both.
My guess is that the thicker spring bars spring migth fit better.
A spring bar should cost almost nothing.

I used new 16mm and worked fine for me. I also ordered 20mm to get the spring. Had to shorten it, but it´s still a bit big in diameter... but it worked.
afterwards i cleaned the watch in a ultrasonic-bath and now it looks better agin. 20160213_173809.jpg 20160213_175936.jpg 20160213_173412.jpg 20160213_173923.jpg 20160213_173352.jpg 20160213_173341.jpg 20160213_192817.jpg
