    G buttons

    any expert G-owners know where to get the G buttons ?

    i was looking at the classic g2210 and would like to change the silver G button to a grey one with red wordings to match the G-SHOCK on the top.
    also , where can i get sweat guard for the back of the watch ?

    Your best bet will probably be to buy a used watch and swap out the parts.

    The button size/shape looks very similar (if not the same) to one that comes on DW-9000/9050/9052 series.

    There's plenty of DW-9052 ones around as they're current models. If you can source one as a spare from your local Casio service center, ask for a light swicth button for DW-9052-1V. It's solid gray in color, not metallic, though, however it should match the gray lug pieces on your watch.

    Also, there should be some used older DW-9000 around for sale, keep an eye on eBay or WUS etc. These can be picked for as low as $30 these days, swap the light button and flip the used one, or simply keep it for spares.

    thanks babola for the valuable info . will definitely consider such a button mod .

    does anyone know where if the sweat guard from the 9052 model can be fitted onto the 2210 ?

    if u wanna change the buttons...look out for the circlip in the module that is so small.and it loves to get lost.y not colour it using nail polish.u can choose which color to customise it.

    Possibly, although the overall look might be 'out of sinc" since the 2210 uses flat ended lug pieces and 9052 uses the ones that protrude (flare out) quite a lot from lug sides.
    Why changing them, if I may ask? I find the ones on 2210 aesteticaly more fitting to the watch style.

    The 2210 is a direct descendant and a little brother of the infamous Master-of-G Raysman 9300/9350 model, both quite a nice watches, IMO.
