    I saw this on a Japanese auction site yesterday.

    Do you think they used a pale yellow or a pale yellow green filter to alter the display colour?

    Sorry I have no idea. But while I was OK with opening my DW-8140/50/60 watches because they needed battery replacements, now all I have is 2 Kings and 4 Frogs and since they are all solar I'm never planning to open any of them. So whether it's justified or not personally I wouldn't buy an expensive watch like this that has been opened. I'm sure some of my earlier watches 'steamed' up whilst skiing etc. because I had them open at some point though to be fair this is really a guess.

    The display color can also change by applying polarized light or filters on the camera lens. No real need to put a filter between the cystal and the display.

    seems like a bit of a weird custom, my guess its just an anomaly with the lighting. are there other pics in the auction? is the colouring consistent in those pics?

    As you say soulbridgemedia, it was probably a trick of the light.
