GW-5000 with composite bracelet, stock G-5600CC-3, stock DW-56RTB-7, GW-M5610 with band from GW-5000
Hi folks, Iíve been searching and reading threads, seems there is a lot of interest and plenty of new members are getting hit by the bug. I wanted to make a thread where people could ask questions, get ideas, and be inspired to fall deeper down the square shaped rabbit hole, so here it is. If this is redundant, than please point me to the correct thread that focusses on 5600 mods.
Hopefully, this thread can lead to some more unique 5600s in the world. For me personally, Iím taking it slow. A simple band and bezel swap is all thatís on the horizon at the moment. Down the road Iíd like to see if I can toss a module into a steelcase, which leads me to my first set of questions.
Pacparts seems to be able to order DW-5030 parts. If I were to make one of these from the ground up (allowing for a few minor customized features), are these the parts Iíd need?
complete 3229 module (maybe from a donor like the DW-5600E or DW-5600P)
Case Center (I need to know if this includes the glass)
Back Rubber Seal
X4 Screw, Bezel
here are the parts Iím uncertain about:
I am wondering if the dial is typically painted onto the glass, and if the 'case center' comes with the glass fastened on. Can the dial or glass be swapped with another? If so, even from a resin case 5600, or would it need glass from a steelcase?
Feel free to also share your own unique project watches! Would be really nice to have one thread to see all of the custom mods work people have done over the years. Thanks everyone.
