    Modified GWM5610-1 for night time visibility

    I just added some glow in the dark stuff under the LCD and on the bezel itself. Looks sick IMO. No back light on or anything. Name:  Snapchat-1606828726.jpg

    You need to put a glow in the dark tape or vinyl between the LCD and the backlight panel for the display to glow. The letters on the bezel can be done by stealthing them off, then refilling them with a glow in the dark paint of your choice. I found glowon works best lol. It's all trial and error but you have to be comfortable with messing with the watch.

    That is exactly what G-Shocks need! Is that a positive display model? Because if so, I guess it gets enough ambient light to charge it up. I would not have expected a positive display in the dark, but glad to see it is. Kudos, Sir, and Applause!
