    3D printed DW 5600c bezel/casing

    It finally fits! Here are some photos of the 5600c cover I designed in stainless steel. This would be great for those who want a replacement part or a custom g shock

    That's great! I have been waiting for something like this for a while now and I can only imagine as the technology gets better it will get more like original.

    I noticed some people in China already have been doing this sort of thing for a few months now, in what they claim is the 'world's first 3d printed 5600c bezel' ( on Taobao) and are selling them for about $40

    This is the picture they uploaded, they claim there is no text for copyright reasons.
    Still, its great to see people like you and them giving new life to old watches.

    I'd have no qualms about wearing a bezel like yours around, it looks great.
    Cant wait for the day when I can restore my DW5500C GSHOCK II !!

    Indeed -- that looks fantastic!

    If people are looking for something that looks more like the original, can you print the same 5600C bezel in black polyamide?

    Not to mention the green, navy and yellow for the non-black 5600C's. No one is making them and they are near-impossible to find NOS

    Very attractive, OP. Would this fit over a standard DW-5600 resin case?

    How hard is the stainless steel of the bezel, and is there any danger of it scratching the case?

    Ironically, I would not have a problem putting a stainless steel bezel over a resin case, for the same reason a resin bezel is fine over a steel case. Steel bezels would be especially problematic over the highly polished cases of G-2000s, GL-130s or MR-G-1s, perhaps. Or are these fears baseless?

    One thing is certain, however: These cases would also look FINE in coloured resins over the DW-5000C cases! Very impressive.

    If by "standard DW-5600 resin case" you mean the DW-5600E, probably not, since DW-5600C and DW-5600E bezels are different and not interchangeable.

    According to this thread, though, he's been working on bezels for both models: https://forums.watchuseek.com/f17/3d-...676018-13.html
