    GW-6900BC-1JF, very stealthed

    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:

    Stealth and stealthy wins the race
    No one ever works out and regrets it. You never go for a run, and then when you're finished, wish you would have stayed home. You never climb a mountain, get to the top, and say, "I should have just been content to stay where I was."

    Glad you're OK after the bike accident.

    Great pick-up! I love mine!

    Great result FF. Lot of thought and attention to detail went into that one

    BTW, I found a way to use enamel Tamiya paint safely on plastic EL buttons, works a charm. No need to use acrylics anymore, in my case anyway.

    Keep them coming...

    still has four shiny buttons... would this module fit in DW6900MS case? If it would that's the way to do it - everything will be black with no paint on case or screws and with black buttons and a buckle too. I wonder why nobody done it yet.

    It doesn't fit I'm afraid: I compared the GW to my DW and the solar cell is attached to the case.

    Those 4 S/S buttons provide a nice match to silver accents on the module insert, IMO.

    The DW-6900MS you mention doesn't have any silver accents on the module insert, the color they used on that model is gun metal, so the black buttons visually fit much nicer.

    I'm sure that when Casio releases a RealBlack or Matte version of their GW-6900 it will come with black buttons
