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)
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:

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.
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.
