Hi all -- I have a GW-6900 project in the works; the donor watch I purchased turned-out to have a worn illuminator button (its plastic is a bit light in color from sun and dry fade...works fine, looks aged). I've looked-over the steps needed to replace the button, and though I'm confident I could mechanically complete the swap, I don't want to risk destroying the water-tightness...if there's another way. I'm considering just painting the button while still connected to the module, but I'm not certain how well standard spray paint will hold-up over time...and I'm not sure which paints might stand a better chance of aging gracefully.
Can anyone who's performed a light-button swap tell me which avenue they'd recommend? I've yet to locate a video of the process, and previous descriptions of the process are not 100% clear on the most successful method (and I'm not 100% clear on which PacParts I might want to order just incase I launch a circlip into the ether).
Thanks in advance -- this is a fun project so I'm not concerned with a little frustration or extra time/cost :)
