    Badly refurbished(?) Guardian Angel on eBay

    Look at the "G" on the 5th button and also the "G-SHOCK" lettering, doesn't look very good to me, even for a used watch

    Wonder how he did that...

    It looks like the 5th button has been bumped agains anything or so. The BIN price is axactly double the price I bought for a better looking oneless than a year ago. If I'm right at that time the prices of this model were somewhere between $150,- and $225,- on Yahoo Japan. the top lettering doesn't also indeed look painted very well.

    Check out my refurbished lettering (both red and white) on a DW-8300 Heavy Metal:

    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    Hi Sjors,
    love your 8300, I have finally found one for myself and it's on the way from austria at the moment.

    Very good repainting, how did you do it exactly?

    cheers

    Hi Guys,

    I didn't know that you would be so much interested in this. I use this kind of paint. It's called Enamel in English and you buy it in scale model and toy shops.



    I fill the lettering of the bezel carefully with a very small paint brush. The excess of paint I wipe of with a tissue with a little bit terpentine (mild paint remover). It gave me suprisingly very neat results (I'm known for my clumbsyness with paint actually here).

    Cheers,

    Sjors
