    So, an all metal 5600 is cool and desired and a 6900 is heretical?

    Was messing around with my Big X6900 today, and thought it was quite heavy.....can’t imagine how much an all-metal X6900 would weigh....already have 2 boat anchors on my yacht.

    For those who didn't read the article, this is a custom job, not an official Casio release. Reminds me of this collector I know in Thailand who creates custom bezels for some vintage Gs from the mid-90s, since the originals have mostly given way to resin rot and are difficult if not impossible to replace. Always impressed with talented folks like these dudes.

It was Grandfather's and when Father gave it to me he said I give you the mausoleum of all hope and desire.... I give it to you not that you may remember time, but that you might forget it now and then for a moment and not spend all your breath trying to conquer it."

    Wonder if we can get some talented folks to make bezels for the Raysman and other models that have succumbed to resin rot.

    This particular gentleman specialized in fabricating bezels out of some kind of non-resin plastic composite specifically for Gundam and Skyforce models. He did some work for me on my bezel-less DW-6700 that I shipped to Bangkok from LA. I was very pleased with the results, but Thai customs proved to be such a headache for him that he swore he'd never take on non-Thai clients again, lol. Granted, I paid all of the ridiculous customs fees, but he felt bad that his clients had to get robbed and didn't feel comfortable with the arrangement at all. Ah well.

    Pretty cool that the guy took the effort to make custom metal versions of this watch. He has in impressive collection of G-Shocks and modified G-shocks too.
