    dying a mudman?

    I want to get a black mudman but don't like the red buttons and thought of using RIT dye on it. Those of you that have dyed watches, how long has it been since you dyed it and has any of the dye worn out of the watch? any thing I should know before dying it? etc, etc... pics too!!!!!

    I have watches that have been dyed for a few months. No fading has taken place, no dye has worn out. I believe that the dye penetrates the resin all the way through, certainly appears that way on the watches that i've done.

    Sorry the pictures aren't very good, but here's my 3V (green) Mudman dyed black:

    Yes, agree with that. None of my dye jobs have faded. Go for it...

    Me too, I plan to swap the buttons on the black mudman, anyone knows how to remove the buttons, or dyeing them is the only option?

    Thanks!

    Dyeing them is the only option, as I played around with the bezel and straps of my Mudman, and I realised that the buttons are part of the bezel and cannot be removed (maybe removable by force)?

    No one ever works out and regrets it. You never go for a run, and then when you're finished, wish you would have stayed home. You never climb a mountain, get to the top, and say, "I should have just been content to stay where I was."

    I don't think you'll be able to swap buttons, as they're integrated with the bezel. Dying is very easy though.

    Can someone please e-mail me and let me know where you purchased the dye, the manufacturer or the dye and the process you used? That mudman looks superb!
