    GA100A - new watch or colour change

    Hello everyone

    I've been having a think and can't decide what to do, so would like to know what everyone on here thinks.

    I have a GA100A in white and purple.
    I love the feel of the watch and think it looks great, however I'm starting to wish I'd got a black one instead.

    What do you guys think I should do? I can either buy a whole new watch in black, or replace just the bezel and strap on this one?
    Opinions on what the best option would be please?

    Thanks in advance
    Cameron

    Here is a picture of the watch for reference

    The black bezel, white face and contrast from the purple hands!

    Oh. My. God.

    Love the look of that and believe that's my question answered.
    Many thanks

    don't stop!!! There a million things you can do!! Pacparts.com buy new color buttons, band/ bezel. Even the arms can be swap out or painted. Name:  uploadfromtaptalk1437423280398.jpg

    I bought a black one as Spares & Repairs on eBay yesterday, it might just need a new battery but I won't know until it arrives.
    In thinking of swapping the bezels and straps over so I have a black one with a white face, and if the other one is an easy fix it will be white with a black face.
    Hopefully it will arrive tomorrow and I can make a start

    Pacparts.com has cheap prices in battery's and watch parts. Watch YouTube video on how to swap out the battery. *****When you swap out the battery there a extra step that resets the watch to get it going. I reset my watch using a paperclip. Touching the battery and the special reset part of the modual. Watch YouTube video there tons of videos explain the steps.

    The band and bezel for the GD-100 will can also fit the GA-100. Check also those color variations.

    This is one of... if not the best digi/analogs from G IMHO
    One that is functional & easy to read in any situation.

    If you like the watch you should definitely get a few resin sets to change it up from time to time

    I had purple on mine which might have been a bit too much heheh
    I really like D2mac's Black skinned one above
