    I agree too. The pale blue and gold accents is really outstanding! The coolest one so far

    Well, I learned a few things while experimenting. 1, how to scrape off the backside of the crystal and that there's only so much you can do without removing the whole crystal. 2, there might be a reason why you don't see blue positive displays, if you go too light it doesn't look very blue, if you go too dark you can hardy read the display. 3, I really need a blue jelly bezel.

    Back to the Lightning Yellow GW5630E. The carbon strap from the GWM5630D is cool but it's super blingy and I wanted it more subtle so I used very fine sandpaper to get it to more of a matte finish yet still keep the carbon pattern visible. Swapped out the keepers and popped on black bars which go well with the black buttons and buckle.

    Decided the jelly strap looked better than the darker blue strap on this one.

    What to do when you don't want to spend 500 on a DW5000ML? Give a 2001 DW5600FL a new lease on life:

    I'll probably end up painting the lettering on the bezel a darker shade of red. I could try going lighter on the filter too but too light and it starts to look pink.

    I had a spare DW5025D Ocean Gray bezel and strap laying dormant and that's a shame in my book. One of the best straps in square-land not being worn? I noticed one of my DW5600GM's had a display/font color that was a pretty close match to the "G-Shock" on the Ocean Gray bezel and tried it out. Popped on a metal keeper too. I did not put bullbars because they tend to create indentations in the bezel and the Ocean Gray bezel too rare to risk damaging. I think it rocks!!

    The 5600GM dial has an interesting font and a unique "flame" pattern around the border which ups the cool factor:
