    GG B&B on a DB +

    Hey guys!

    Just wanted to show you a couple pics of a GG on a DWN BLK module.

    I recently sprayed bug spray on my DB Band AND bezel and I was SOO pissed. For the life of me I tried EVERYTHING to get it look like that matte original freshness, but everything I tried, I could not remove the OFF/deet stains, or return the band to normal, so I ordered a new DB and GG set to make me happy! And happy I am. But it just makes me sad how tough these watches are but fragile at the same time.....

    I custom painted the red arrow on the bezel with nail polish, and the G-SHOCK at the top is wrecked, you might not be able to see it from the pic. I am gonna try different colors soon on the bezel. I am gonna try other things with it and see if i can't get that matte factory look back somehow.

    1. Can you dye black?

    2. What color should I do the words G-SHOCK at the top? keep it yellow/gold?

    3. What color should I do the arrow? red?
    (I tried white it didn't look too hot.)

    I'm not a pro as you can probly tell, but I try at pics and a small diorama lol.







    I like the way the Gold Eye looks on a DB on a GG!

    Why didn't they do it on a watch called "glorious gold" ?




    Thanks!

    Dying a black watch black should make it come out black. Dying other colors will have varying successes.

    Yes you can dye it black with Rit dye or Dylon. You need to get the right type, I think it's 'general purpose' you want. I'm sure there's a How To on the forum for detailed instructions.

    Unfortunately resin can be harmed by certain chemicals, as stated in the manuals. Sun block is another to watch out for.

    Actually I like GG case on DB May be because of a clearer eye of a DB. Looks more aggressive.
