    dw-9052 tweaks

    Hey guys,
    Had some time to mess around, and I know that a lot of owners of the 9052 don't like the silver bezel pins. I don't either. Soo, I took a jet lighter to them. The end effect is a bronze-ish finish vs chrome. I have also reversed the display with some polarizing film I ripped out of an old calculator/pda thing. It is hard to see the time at certain angles but I think that is just how reversed lcds are. I did notice that if I flipped the film around I could also get a deep blue/purple lcd, and a goldish/green lcd. Might want to try the gold if i can find another calculator. I goofed off the bezel, and I chewed up the light button initially with some nail polish remover. I had to sand the light button down but I managed to salvage it. Enjoy the pics!

    Looks good. I especially like the 1st pic, very stealth. I have the same model and ya I hated the bezel pins as well...so I yanked em out! Was planning on painting them flat black and then putting them back in, and reversing the LCD as well...just have not gotten around to it!

    Great idea to use the jet lighter on the pins.
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    The finish seems to be quite durable too, it doesn't rub off. Hope this gives people another option other then to paint them, or taking them out.

    Kirk, the first thought that comes to my mind when I think about master blue frogman is marlboro cigs...lol, one of my fav pics.

    cheers,
