    Am I the only one here who likes Stealthed Gs?

    Just Kidding!

    Sorry, had to do it. I got my new watch a couple days ago, so apparently it is mandatory I post pics. Well, not being able to leave well enough alone, I had to stealth the lettering on my new DW 5600. You know, it helped, but I really like the sterile dials of military watches, and kept wanting a way to do the same to the new G.



    This is my first attempt. It took a little getting used to, but now I'm hooked. When you look at the time, all you see is...the time. No distractions, bright lettering, it is all tool.

    Well, since I liked it, I started talking to a sign company about building these for me in colors. Hmmm. Flat green to go with the black band, a popping red or blue to go with the white band...you get the idea. I think these would look better than mine, because they would be one piece rather than having the lines like mine. These would also protect a large portion of the crystal from scratches.

    Anyway, I wanted to show everyone my new tool watch. Also, I am wondering if anyone else likes it. If so, pipe up, and we may be able to get some of these out and about to bring new life into an old watch, and make it truly different than the rest of them.

    If you don't like it, just say "Very nice Any Cal., now go play with your toys."

    Okay wait a second, I think I'm starting to get it. Did you put tape over the crystal to stealth it? haha
    that's gotta be a first.

    Hi Any Cal!

    Congratulations and thanks for posting!

    As I have a weakness for stealthed watches, I really like your new G!!

    I've never seen a G stealthed to the extreme like yours! How did you do the black parts around the LCD?

    Take care
    Clemi

    nope, ure not the only one. many of us like stealthed Gs.
    but to get a complete stealth, u need to reverse the display.

    You could make your own 'covers'. Just need to get the right color plastic, then cut carefully.

    I know a lot of you guys like them, the title was a joke. I considered the negative display, but figured it would be too hard to read.
