    Got a new bezel for DW6900

    Hello guys. I just replaced my white bezel to a all black bezel. The problem is the light button which is silver colour and I think it just looks weird with the black bezel. Is there anyway I can paint the button and make it black? Thanks

    buttons and paint dont play nice together. if you have to use a solvent, the button will melt. looks fine and stands out. your only recourse is to buy a button (or donor watch) and replace it....which is a royal PITA.

    There is no point buying a donor watch solely to obtain a watch part that is readily available from Casio for a few dollars plus postage or 3rd party reseller. There is a wide choice of different illuminator buttons available. Have a look at the different DW-6900 variants and take your pic. I used the button for a DW-6900MC-7 which is black with grey G letter. Taking the case apart and removing the illuminator button is pretty easy, the only hard part is removing or refitting the E clip from the bottom of the G button stem as they tend to fly off. It's a job a beginner could do IMO.

    Yup!!

    E-Clips are sent to test that's for sure!!!!!

    My way if I ever have to do it is using a blob of silicone oil so the clip "sticks" to the watch body or screwdriver, (I literally just get them in position and push on with the edge of the blade and hope!), if it doesn't go on properly.

    The dreaded "E" clip is not for the faint of heart... or novice. Not unless you're someone really adept at fine precision work. I installed a couple of these and have come to the conclusion that CASIO must have a special tool for this. Like a tool with a slightly curved tip having a groove in it. If I was going to get into serious modding, like Kung Fusion once did, I'd fashion myself such a tool. Because the nightmare of "E" clips taking flight into the netherworld is one of maddening frustration.

    OP, I suggest removing the bezel, then taking some micromesh to the light button. It'll turn that polished shiny bling into a muted matte finish that will look a lot better.

    Wow those mods sound super complicated, I better just stick with this button lol.. And that micromesh is a good idea! Will definitely give it a try. Btw any suggestion for the colours of NATO that will look good with the Gshock? Thanks!

    This very subject is why I have put-off my idea of a modded GW-9400, if this tool exists, and can be bought I would be all ears.
