    Bezel

    I am a HUGE G SHOCKS fan and I have been collecting some Gs. Last month I bought a Limited Edition Frogman and this morning I found a huge scratch. When can I replace it?

    Which Frogman model number is it, and is the scratch on the resin bezel or the glass?

    You will not find a replacement black helios bezel. They are extremely rare and I have never seen one for sale. The good news is you can use any 200 series frogman bezel. The easiest to get is probably the GW-225A (Dawn Black) bezel. You can get one, swap out the gold rivets for your original's silver rivets, and "stealth" off the paint in the letters with a toothbrush and acetone (rubbing SOFTLY). It will look basically the same as the black helios bezel.

    You can buy the bezels at pacparts.com or tiktox.com. search GW-225A .
