A 6 weeks old GW-6900-1 died on me, yeah!
That's my first broken G (bike accident, all Chris King parts, arms & legs still in tact, only the GW was burried alive & totaly ruined) so I ordered another one.
After a week I sold the watch and bracelet because I wanted the negative display, so here it is.
I'm not a fan of the grey text and mustard yellow G-button, so I painted it (with Tamiya X-22 acrylic modellers paint, semi gloss; matches the shinyness off the inner bracelet links). The outer 'mustard' line of the 'G' is still visible and I leave it that way; I like it because the colour is almost the same as the digits in some light circumstances.
Bezel screws are painted with Motip car paint.
The display is a bit harder to read in low light conditions but I switched auto el on. Best negative display so far, by far. But who wants the best legibility go for the positive version. On the other side: I think this one looks so much nicer it's worth to sacrifice a little bit and turn auto el on.
It beats the DW-6900 MS hands (...arms, legs....) down.
Pics say more than words, no dusting because I'm lazy and the display is hard to capture on cam; IRL it looks a bit better, believe me:
