    This is a G5600CC which originally was all solid dark green resin. I'm partial these days to a contrasting bezel/band look (which may change someday), so I put on a white bezel with green lettering and a lighter green Glide strap with a white keeper and some bars. The CC display has a neat negative display look at certain angles which I tried to capture in the last pic.

    Here's a 5600CG which has a violet font which is pretty unusual amongst 5600 displays. I enhanced it further by adding a similar color roscolux gel filter, then topped it off with a combi bracelet. Very clean end result. The bezel font is a bit messy, at some point I'll tidy it up with some black or violet-ish paint.

    Here's a DW5600FL mod. Another contrasting bezel/font one. This has a silver bezel with red font, a red strap with contrasting keeper and grayish bars. I added a red roscolux gel filter as well because, well, it's red which is awesome.

    I feel like I've tried numerous strap and bezel permutations on this 5600EH but I can't decide on what looks best. Red, white, and black bezels and straps, even a red rosco filter. Here's another shot:

    I did a couple of simple mods here, painted over the reddish orange G-SHOCK lettering on a DW5600CL bezel and added an orange filter to the display. I could go lighter on the filter; but I'll leave it be for awhile to see how I like it.
    I should add, all the info I needed came from threads in the forum. Thank you guys.

    Jzoo! No posts on this thread for 4 days then we both post within a minute of each other lol. Way to go with the filter I like that shade. It can get tricky trying to match the filter color to other parts of the watch. Also tricky with red is too light and it starts to look pink, too dark and it's difficult to read. Another option for you is to go darker on the red bezel font. Either way, it's these experiments that make our watches unique.

    Yes, an explosion of excitement in the thread.

    I am shooting for orange, so the lettering is good now. The filter is more orange in real life, but kind of dark compared to the new lettering. Since I followed the advice about picking up a sample book of filters, there are several others I can try. ;)

    Cool I've been wanting to try orange. I know there have been times when I've sampled several in one sitting and never was satisfied. Either a speck of dust gets in there and I can't help but notice it, or the shade isn't just right, or the filter gets a tiny scratch or bend in it. At least it's a relatively painless process to try something new if you want to change it someday. Good luck with it, looking forward to seeing future mods!

    Hi jzoo, it's still looking pretty red to me? I'm curious, does the filter look more orange before you put it in the watch then appear more red? Or do you think it's a camera thing? Maybe I'm colorblind lol In any case it looks cool.
