    Great, Sherms! Thanks for posting. He even changed the screwback from golden to silver, didn't he?

    Wow...that's nice.

    Seems like nearly exactly like a mod that someone I know is planning .

    That would be an incredible feat, but I think it's just the lighting in the pic.



    Looks quite nice, if you guys ever find a good source for the bezel please let me know.

    Hi Sherms,

    I think that's a regular DW5600EG bezel and strap (minus the retainer, of course), which you can easily find on eBay (the full watch, that is). But actually the lettering color in the DW5600EG's bezel is not golden, but sort of a yellow ochre. I know it because I have one.

    You can get a DW5600E bezel and paint the lettering in a real golden color.

    If you decide to go for this, get a bottle of Testor's Model Master in a hobby shop (Gold B-1744 in Model Master's Enamel F/S Colors catalog). Humbrol's #16 Metallic Gold Enamel is another very good option.

    Ask for a premium red sable brush # 5/0, so you can control the strokes and don't overflow the lettering. Don't let them offer you one of those rustic cheap plastic brushes model shop employees love to sell to unsuspecting customers everywhere in the world.
