    Do the bottons come out of the G9000-1v bezel?

    Hey guys, I've been reading the How to section and trying to search google but I will dye my G9000-1v tomorrow so that I can have black buttons instead of red.

    But my question is, is there any way to remove the buttons safely from the bezel and just dye them instead of the whole piece?


    I haven't taken apart my watch just yet but I wanted to ask so I'm ready to not screw anything up tomorrow.


    Thank you

    Hi Bart,

    The great thing about the Mudman (both old an new version) is that the buttons are covered by the bezel, to prevent mud and dirt to come in. In other words, the red (softer) parts are molded in the bezel.

    Cheers,

    Thank you for the quick and good response Sjors.

    That does it for me, I was wondering if there was some kind of way of removing them but if they are molded together with the bezel then there isn't anything I can do about that.


    Thank you

    Thanks for the help man.
    Well I did dye the watch tonight and it looks great. Will post pics asap.

    But do you know where I can find a replacement bezel from the GW9000 model? I'd like to buy one just to keep on the side.

    I tried ebay but didn't find anything.
