    I can't tell from ur pic but it looks to be a 5600. The most important thing at this point us the resin. If it has a gloss finish it will not take dye. If it's matte then you're good to go! RIT dye works great, but given the option make sure to get the powder rather than the liquid. Start with the darkest color (black) and work down the color spectrum to the lightest color you intend to use. The higher the heat, the darker the color. Just under a boil works for me.

    After you dye in black, rinse and pat dry and remove some of the masking. Then dye in your next lighter color...

    Just be very careful with the keeper. I melted one by accident not long ago.

    The thing is that it's made from a different sort of plastic than the strap and bezel. The latter can safely be placed into dye which is just under boiling, but you'll have to do something else with the keeper. Last time I dyed a watch, I boiled some water and stirred in the dye powder then turned off the gas and put the strap and bezel in, whereas for the keeper I waited for the liquid to cool then poured it into a glass jar.

    Next I tied some string to the keeper and dipped it in the glass jar with the string hanging over the edge and the lid screwed on to keep it in place. Then I sat the jar in front of an electric fan heater and let it blow over the glass for about 45 mins. This provided enough heat for the dye to take, but not enough to melt the keeper.

    Hope that helps.

    Oh, and it's good that Tsip85 has posted; he's probably had more dying experience than anyone else here.
