    Casio G Shock MTG 900. Had it for about eight years now. It has been the most durable watch I have owned so far. It has also remained accurate in it's time keeping too.

    Those kind of runs suck in the beginning, but can feel pretty good once you get going.

    It sure has. I just acquired it about a year ago and had it serviced with new crystal but kept the dial and hands as is to keep that vibe. I did have the dial cleaned some it had a few loose particles and grime. Thank you.

    Sadly, most watch companies (if you're lucky) only stock replacement parts for 20 years.

    Unfortunately your best bet is going to be to track down the exact model you have and hope the part inside that one still works, so a watchmaker can transplant it into your watch.

    You might want to check the watchuseek forums. There's a bunch of knowledgeable people over there that will be able to either point you in the right direction or track the part down for you.

    No worries. Would hate to see a nice vintage watch go unused when the fix is probably readily available!

    It's a dot com. Hopefully I don't get in trouble for this: watchuseek dot com should get there. Be prepared for the WIS's.

    Is it an f300hz? If it is, there should be plenty of parts a decent watchmaker can get. The movement was used in a ton of watches other than Omega's. A quick check on that particular movement showed that is was made by Bulova under license for Omega.
