    Another Dye Job. (Frogman)

    (UPDATE on page 2 8/5/15)

    I've been wanting to do this for a while and decided today was the day.

    I had these yellowing bezel/band for some time and decided to take on the Murakami challenge.

    I used 3 cups of water and 1/2 Tbs of the dye. I dipped in individual pieces separately for 1-1.5 mins.

    I decided to go with black letters because i didn't have white paint. Tried grey on one side but didn't look too good as black.

    I love how it turned out. I think this is not going to leave the wrist for a while. Very good summer color.
    Thank you for looking!

    thank you all for such kind words. i have since swapped out two things. the two screws on the bezel has been changed from gold to a darker color one (from the MIRB bezel) and buckle on the band is black.
