OK, so I wanted a Timex iControl Ironman. If you're not familiar with it it has a module that you plug into your ipod and you can control the basic functions, volume, play, pause ffwd, rwd etc...great for cycling
They're a bit more than I wanted to pay and the only low cost ones were not black or gray, only orange, pink and baby blue.
I picked up a light blue model knowing I wouldn't like the color and sure enough I didn't, but it works like a charm. Lotsa geek/techy appeal!!
Just like anyone that's modded a G, I thought I'll dye it. Problem is you can't remove the band/bezel....
So I took powdered black RIT put it in simmering water to dissolve it, cooled it to warm, taped the acrylic crystal in case it would take on color and gave the entire watch a 30 minute bath.
Now I have a black Timex with a baby blue price. No discoloration of the crystal or the plastic pushers.
And to think I've been boiling Casio bands/bezels to dye them.....
Sitting here wondering if this will work with G bands/bezels, it was much easier
Please forgive the quick iphone pic.
