    GW 7900 now "all black" (also the buckle !)

    Hi all,
    finally my GW 7900 has the right "all black" look: I replaced the default stainless steel buckle with the PVD one of the DW5600MS that IMHO better matches the watch.

    Now I'm really satisfied of the overall result !

    Ciao
    Engi

    where can i get a PVD buckle? Do you have to replace the whole strap or can you just replace the buckle?

    Very nice result. I think it looks great with that pvd buckle, but also always felt that the silver buckle was a nice compliment to the silver screws on the bezel. It never seemed too out of place to me.

    pretty much agree. I have a big bead-blasted buckle which looks good on it too. One of those watches looks good with any buckle. C'mon the watch is so tough it doesn't have time for that silliness and superficial stuff anyways .

    Buckles aren't available as a separate item.
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    Engi,
    Could you please tell us if this buckle is fitted with a springbar or a pin because I want to do the same mod on my 7900 w/ neg. display (bezel screws are black so it will match perfectly) ?
    Thx

    Looks great. That mod is a must in my opinion on that watch, I would like to do the same. I actually want to do it on my GW7900 and GW6900. Where did you get the replacement strap, part# ? Is it a straight pin or the spiring style? Thanks

    I'm in the process of doing this also, just waiting for my new buckle to arrive.

    It's a springbar type, on the original strap and on the DW-6900MS or DW-5600MS spare strap.
    BTW I wanted to mod an other black watch with the casio black plastic square buckle from a DW-6900 spare band (18mm) : I tried many times to remove the pin but without success

    Its possible that there is glue holding the springbar in there. You can try to soak it in warm water for about 10 mins and see if that helps.
