Where's a good place to find a little screw driver that will remove the teeny screws on the backplate of my Casio G-Shock so I can replace the battery? Thanks.

Also, are all G-Shocks made in China nowadays? My backplate says China but the clasp on the band says Japan.

However you get it off, make sure you get the little rubber water seal back in place correctly when you put it back together.

My first g-shock battery lasted almost ten years. Now I wear a solar triple sensor.

I just made one with an old screwdriver and my Dremel - works fine. I should have thought about doing that sooner. Those Dremels are nice to have.

The 99 cent store usually has a cheap set of eyeglass screwdrivers.

Just so you know....putting in a new battery isn't enough.

If you do that, then screw the entire thing back together....IT WON'T WORK.

Why? You also have to hit a little reset button.

Don't ask me where it is....I had mine changed last time at a store and the newbie tech. thought my watch was broken until his boss showed him the reset button.

Something to be aware of.

I found a little info about what you're saying. Apparently there is a small hole usually marked "AC" where you stick a small wire or tweezers in and touch the negative side of the battery with the other side to reset the display.

Take it to the shop. It's not worth it. It will never be waterproof again. Trust me.
