    Another GG Frogman Dye Job

    I had bought a GG froggie a few months ago that was not getting alot of wrist time because I was not luving the clear jelly bezel and band. One of my favorite frogs that I own is the Dawn Black and decided to see if I can get a similar look with this and make it my new beater. This new beater will help save my DB and MB frogs from any further wear and tear as I mainly wear a frogman as my daily watch when at work. I am one of those guys that wants his resin G's to be black and would not have been happy with any other color.

    So I dyed both band and bezel with rit black and also did the vinegar after rinse. I had removed all the paint on the bezel prior to dyeing so when it was a good and dry I repainted with testors grey and gold paint.

    Yes it may look boring compared to those lime green or purple color creations but I like the way it turned out

    Here is a wrist shot:

    Wow, that seem to work out right. It looks similar to the DB Frog!

    That's a terrific job, sspartan!! Could have fooled me - I actually thought it was the DB at first glance!

    it is the DB frog. mayb thats how Casio made all their colored bezel and band. first produce a jelly version and then dye accordingly.

    The GG was made soooo you could see the Glourious Gold Ti case through the transparent bezel just MHO I have a lot of black Gs and swithced my DB Frog for the GG bezel and strap and dont plan on swithcing back except maybe if I had a Master Blue bezel

    Nice dye though. how would that look with blue letters

    btw I plan on getting a couple of extra sets so I can try it also, Im thinking of Sjors red and I saw a cool blue.
