    Found two Rising White DW-5025B Gs. Should I buy?

    Found two in a local store for $130 each. As you probably already know, these are the 25th anniversary edition with the 25th anniversary stamp on its gold screwback. I'm not really into the white, but I do love screwbacks, so if I keep it I might try to replace the white band & bezel with black. Can this be easily done? Do the bezels from stamped back 5000/5600 Gs fit screwbacks?

    Will these be highly sought after in the future in case I decide to sell?

    Oh...they also had two Glorious Gold and one MIRB Frogman for $350. The GG Frogman looks saweeeet:)

    I'd say - yes, go and buy it (or both)...at least for collectability sake if nothing else. These are only going to appreciate in value in the coming years.

    Go for it!

    I swapped the band and bezel with the ones from the dw5600eg. Perfect fit and it looks great, imo.

    Snap 'em up! Are they in the original 25th Anniversary box/tin?

    I would think they come with the 25th anv. box/tin since they're being sold in a major department store (I wont say where to avoid someone snatching them).
    I'll probably just buy one and keep it...the all black face on white actually looks pretty cool.

    I had one and I think it is one of the best reverse displays for readability. That mod would give you a very stealt G

    The GG and Dawn Black have a very cool gold Ti case. get the GG wet and it becomes even more translucent
