    Question GW-M5600A Bezel Replacement

    After a solo journey to the mall, I returned home with a brand spanking new GW-M5600A. Solar Atomic and it even sync'ed last night.

    Borrowed Pic:



    My latest impulse buy (a habit lovingly tolerated by my wife) happens to be the OD Green version. Given my inherent propensity to tinker, I am thinking about switching out the 'bezel' and strap to black versions. Thanks to the information in these very forums, I know that I can pick up the parts through tiktox .

    Now my questions are threefold....
    1 Are there any compatability issues with GW-M5600 parts?
    2 Are there any tricks or tips to be aware of when executing the change-out?
    3 Are there any locations in Canada (being a Canuck) where I can pick up these parts and not incur the dual wrath of canada customs and import taxation agents?

    :thanks

    Question 1:

    Full compatible!

    Question 2:

    No, just remove the 4 screws on the lugs and peel it off the case.

    Question 3:

    Nu clue...

    Nope, should be pretty straight forward. 4 bezel screws, 2 sprint bars, and be patient.

    You may try one of these Authorized Service Centres in your province, or just call the Casio Canada Service Centre.

    If I were you I'd buy a G5600E (for 70 USD) instead of strap+bezel only.
    Then I'd swap between them. You'll have the black watch with green display as you want, and another green one for fun !

    d2mac - Sounds like my hankering for tinkering will be easy to satisfy, thanks. I live 1/2 hour from the BC service center. I see a very short road trip in my future!

    ggyy1276 - Thanks for the detailed parts list

    luka87 - it seems to do just fine on my 6.5 inch wrist, and is smaller than most of my automatics!

    Freeman - I will have to see which is cheaper part or another watch... This could lead to an intersting conversation with my wife
