    Slapped a composite braclet onto the DW-5600BB-1ER today. (I say slapped, more like struggled and fought with it for an hour. Damn thats a tough bracelet to fit!)


    While not all black I have a GD-350-1BER incoming. Had one before but sold it as it was uncomfortable. I've since read you can take the wrist "wings" off for an improved fit. Think I need different strap screws?

    Looking to source a G9000MS-1CR, if only I could get one at a reasonable price in the UK. (£60-£80)

    You do not need "strap screws". You need back plate screws from a DW-5600 series or compatible Casio. I used the DW-5600 back plate screws because that is what I had on hand. Do not use back plate screws that are any longer than those from a 5600 series because the bezel screw holes and the spring bar holes are back to back.

    The straps are held in place by conventional spring bars. The screws on the GD-350 once the wings are removed will obviously be too long. The DW-5600 screws are only there held in place by a little friction to fill in the void.

    Now take those wings off and enjoy the watch. It will be so much better.

    Here are some pictures of one of my 350's:

    I'd be needing more arms if I have that collection.

    It's always time for a new watch.

    Nice all black collection indeed, well put together. GD-400MB looks like good candidate for your collection.

    Thanks for suggestion. I've got the HUF version which is very nice, it's the nicest and brightest positive display I've seen so far. Living in its box for now.

    More suggestion for models I should acquire are welcomed.
