    Wink Found a nice DW-6640 partial ..Pic heavy post

    Hi all
    I was not looking for one of these but happened on this DW-6640 center section which looked quite clean.
    Price was very reasonable & being a Scorpio myself the Scorpion back light kind of cinched it

    These were released in 1994 with the 1209 module & I am not sure how long they were manufactured up until ?
    Will read up more on it

    As it came as just a center section/module I need to decide on a color of resin set. I have quite a few to choose from as a DW-6900 resin set fits fine
    & I can also dye a white matte set if need be as I still have a few untouched FS-8 sets

    I originally thought about finding a original green printed DW-6640 set but to tell the truth am not very impressed with the original color/pattern like this one..
    Also the greens vs the other colors on screen dont look great to me for some reason

    I slipped on a FS-8 white & a MS Black Matte to see also

    Both were ok but I note the DW-6640 has some nice Blue lettering for "Water 20 Bar Resist" & also some blue Hash marks flanking "Fox Fire"
    Also on the glass the lettering on left is all in Gold which is very nice too

    So tried some Blue MM resin & looks pretty good to me for now.
    Do not know if I will keep it this way but for now looks quite nice to my eyes


    By the way these older modules like my DW6900H all run so well...so snappy with back lights that are so bright & sharp.
    Really nice I think

    Here are a few pics....

    Looking good there flying, I was really surprised when I saw the title, having complete green 6600 would be cool. I dont know if I saw 2 green 6640 in total in last 2 years on forums or fb groups. Very rare model, yellow is a bit more common.

    It has same blue writing on the crystal as the 6600B, just no orange button, nice detail, thats why looks so good with mm resin

    Thanks Crater

    I am new to the 6600 line & just started looking awhile back for the "B" you spoke of with the
    Orange light Button & Electro Luminescense on strap one I have seen from time to time. But have not seen a decent one so have not bought.

    This just popped up & I was lucky. But now that I have it I have to say I am quite impressed with it.
    This 6600 line is quite cool isn't it? With the 12/24hr time easy switch E button like the GDX6900 & also that target time function on the stop watch

    But yes overall really liking this little watch That scorpion El is icing on the cake

    Your right though as when I saw this I started looking & searching past stuff & did not see any complete greens either.
    Except a seller on Rakuten had 2 but not sure if link was still valid.

    Thanks for info

    6600s are definitely great watches, one of my favourites from that era. Nice, basic and simple, that's what Gs were all about back then

    Hope you find a mint green 6600 once, would be nice to have one on the forum lol.

    And just in case you will be on the lookout for more 6600, here are few from the 90's G cataloge, few nice models in there that we dont' see often

    As you can see there are 2 green 6600, not sure whats the diffrence between them:

    Another thumbs up for the blue resin 6640! Looks very cool and unique. Though the LCD digits look like faded to orange color, hopefully it will still last for a few years before completely faded.

    I think the 6600 is the most efficient use of screen in a 6900 shape watch. The waste of screen real estate with eye candies for the 6900, is the exact reason why I stay away from it.

    the blue resin looks great, but i'd go for the matte black + gold (G-Shock) & blue colors (buttons) on the bezel letters
