    First dye job, GA 100b

    Hi All

    Im real glad i found this place, this is like the holygrail for g-shock owners, very helpful site!

    Anyways i was getting bored of my GA 100b, i decided i would dye it havanna brown, stealthed the bezel using what i had available here, still looking for a suitable alternative

    before:(taken from the internet)




    After: (Apology for the terrible pics, taken with my mobile phone)








    Im really happy with the color, i have not seen a g with the same color so am proud to be unique.

    Thanks to everyone thats contributed to tutorial sections, a wealth of info!

    I've been thinking really hard about dying this same watch a light blue color to bring out the accents on the dial. Nice dye job though; it's reassuring to know that a first timer can do it!

    Glad you got the result you were after.

    Also, you have the option later on of applying some little vinyls to it then using black dye to produce a camo effect.

    I've dyed three watches now, and I have to say it's a very satisfying thing to do.

    Blue is a good choice for this one, too!
