    An unintentional custom square.
    I wanted this one for it's mind, not it's body.

    Hoping to make it less custom soon.

    Why, restore it to stock, of course.

    I had to go look up the 5600b after your first post. Very cool. I would think parts are not readily available but what do I know. Looking forward to see end result. Like that display too.

    Around 20% of my squares have the stock grayish display. It's not that I don't like it, but I really enjoy negative, color, mirror, and microdot displays more. I've added roscolux filters to some as well. Thing is, there are only so many varieties available in the 5000/5600 models so I've started looking to other models. Has anyone tried a G-5500 module 3160 in a 5600/5610? I hope it'll work because I'll be getting two, maybe three 5500 modules in the next couple weeks which I hope to use in some customs. Here are the display colors:

    My DW5000LV arrived today and it's sweet, see the 5600 owners thread for more details. Anyway, my plan was never to keep it stock but it is nice the way it is. Time will tell if I keep it as such. Regardless, I was going through my available spare parts but I'm getting analysis paralysis. Too many combinations!
    Stock bezel with different color straps:

    Out of these I think dark green is interesting. I already have white bezel squares with a blue strap(jelly though), a shiny green strap, and a black strap.

    Or (and) I could change the bezel. I have 8 or 9 black bezel squares already but the black does look cool:

    Another possibility involves putting the 5000LV module in a 5700ML casing which has a more subtle gray border instead of shiny silver:

    That's 24 different bezel/strap combos. I actually have a yellow strap and a sparkle strap but I'm not feeling those at the moment. I might just keep it stock until some inspiration hits.

    Love Squares and love your creativity on display in this thread. My only mod so far is to add black bullbars to my GW-5000. Working up to a Combi bracelet next.

    Thanks! I like the black bars on the GW5000. Looks great with the leather jacket too. Bad to the bone.

    To continue my previous post on the DW5000LV, after much deliberation I ended up going with a silver/gray theme, last thing I need is another all black square:

    I don't remember where I got it, but I had a GW M5630D bezel available which is a dark gray almost black jelly with tan lettering. The lettering didn't go with the dial, a little black paint took care of that. The result is pretty close to what I was hoping for as the bezel doesn't look as dark with the metal underneath showing through:

    The LV came with the classic silver border around the display which was used on a LOT of older model squares. I thought it detracted from the awesome display of the LV so I decided to swap it out with the case of a DW5700ML which has a cool gray border and minimal text. First time I've used a 5700 part in a mod.

    I decided to keep the LV caseback, but I could always use the 5700 caseback if I wanted too. I did a quick polish with a Cape Cod cloth, not too concerned with a few scratches here and there:

    I tried a dark green band at first which really didn't look bad, but ended up with a silver strap that I lightly sanded to dull it a little. I used the GWM5630D carbon keeper, turned upside down so it's not as glossy. Put on some gray (not silver) bars as a finishing touch. I could live without the bars but the 5000LV came with them so I thought it'd be nice to carry them over.

    I LoVe this LV even more now! See you next time, fergfour

    I wear that exact watch to work daily. Best daily wearer ever IMHO. Been leaving all the Swiss competition at home since it arrived. Formal and nights out is another story, of course ;)
