    Changing a GW5035 BnB

    Hi guys.
    Anyone owning a Black Series 35th Anniversary with a special coating on it, will know why I do what I do.
    I've transplanted a pair of Black BnB from a 5600SN1 to replace the original BnB from the 5035. To me, I like the clean look right now. At the same time, I found a pair of 5600EH7 BnB that I might actually play around with in the near future.
    Let me know your thoughts.
    Cheers

    Hmm, that "since 1983" really jumps out at you. I'm a fan of contrasting bezel/band and have dabbled with that on several of my squares. Something about the white bezel and or strap though seems to be distracting though on the 35, maybe because the dial is so dark and the neg display. But hey, it's your watch, customize it as you see fit and in a way that makes you happy!

    You know what might work, the bezel and strap from the HR series. Red font on the bezel and the red on the underside of the strap. Or maybe a red bezel or strap.

    I was looking for it high and low, but it's not in the market .. yet! Unless i buy a complete watch and tear it apart to get to the BnB!
    Anyway, the possibilities are virtually endless and I can't wait to see what i can cook up in the coming days/weeks/months.
    Thanks for the tip again though! Appreciate it.

    PacParts can get the bezel and strap for the GW-5000HR. They both say "Not in stock," but usually it doesn't take long for them to get the parts if you order them (no guarantees, though).

    Eagerly awaiting mine. The matt finish looks good, digging the all black look

    What do you mean by a special coating. Do the bezel and band had a coating on them that the other g shock squares don't? Thanks

    I have a GW-5000 strap and bezel on the way for it because the coating is so finicky.

    Thanks for the reply. Could you elaborate on finicky? I thought the "coating" was just a finish. It appears to attract dust?

    It appears to be either a coating or a rough finish. The underside of the strap feels and looks the exact same as a normal GW-5000.
    The coating scuffs and can appear furry.
