    i prefer my square on the narrower M5610BC bracelet... it's more comfortable on my wrist.

    Glorious Gold (GWM-5625E) yellowed out so it's time for new bezel (GWM-5600BC) and strap (GWM-5600-1)

    Custom Squares: Q&A, show em here, fuel addiction

    This thread went dark 4 months ago which is unfortunate as I feel it's a fun part of owning G's. When I look at a piece in my collection I can't help wonder what it might look like if I changed one or 2 things. Let's revive this thread! It's a great way to share ideas and knowledge. I'd love to see a custom square with a gold microdot lcd like the dw5303d or gwm5630a has. Here's my latest, a Rising White with a gw5000 strap and some bullbars. Nothing technically difficult but it gives it a whole new look: Name:  IMG_20170317_115321.jpg

    I have 2 custom squares, that are just skin swaps. GLS-5600KL-1 module in a KL-7 skin and visa versa. This pic is on my phone, so here it is.

    That series is unique for sure. The purple version is crazy.

    Trivia question, the KL stands for Kyocera Laminate.

    Here's the one I modded yesterday. A DW-5030 with a BB module, MS bezel, and standard 5600E strap. It looks so nice to me. I'm very happy with how it turned out.

    Squares are such a great platform for mods.

    I used to be totally traditional, the square had to be like it was from the factory, but nowadays I figure what heck as long as you're careful you can always switch it back. I tried a couple yesterday, green bezel/yellow strap and yellow bezel/green strap. Turns out I don't like either one but at least my curiosity is satisfied.

    I might try yellow bezel/black strap instead.

    Then, I had what I thought was a great idea, put the module in my g5600cc which has a blue lcd, in my dw5000lv with the ocean gray band. Turns out it doesn't fit! Learning as I go which is ok. I'll keep posting future experiments though and I hope others do too.

    Some more experiments. This is a combo gwm5030e and a Gm5600A, sort of a homage to the green and yellow surf rider:

    Honestly I'm not blown away by either. I think the blue/white might be better with a white bezel/blue strap. Anyway it's fun to see how they turn out, it's the only way to find out for sure what you like and what you don't.
