    DW6900-1V on DW6900SD-8D Strap and Bezel

    Since the bezel and strap of my DW6900-1V is already have cracks, I decided to replace it and I chose the bezel and strap of DW6900SD-8D as a replacement since they have the same dimension. I assume that it will surely fit.

    Note: the color of DW6900SD-8D that I got is not the same in the website.

    actual image. I think the color is actually camouflage gray same in this picture (http://www.canstockphoto.com/images-...hp?id=17829610). So for those who like to purchase the SD models, check it in actual.

    Maybe this strap will also fit for GW-M5610SD-8D.

    I have to remove some bridge (as what dan-lax called it in his post https://forums.watchuseek.com/f43/ski...ex-676089.html - thanks to him, I have an idea on how to make the band bend more), I don't know what it's called.

    Here's the picture after the cutting. I did not boil mine.

    I guess it is possible to mix and match the bezel and strap (maybe the other parts too like lcd's, and case) of our gshocks as long as it has the same dimensions.

    Those buttons are always troublesome!
    Be cool if new resins came with a button

    Looks fantastic! I may have to pick up some of that resin and do a little customization myself!
