    GW3000 on Maratac Zulu!

    Long story short, I got some strap adaptors from a forum member - Thanks again Ben! - ordered the strap from broadarrow and it looks like this.

    The excess strap length tucks neatly into the adaptor thusly:

    This is a lot more comfortable than the resin and it looks really good. The only downside is that Casio doesn't offer adaptors for the Aviator series (Come on, man!) so you have to use Pathfinder adaptors and remove the logos. I used acetone and it turned out okay. I scrubbed the first one too hard and marred the resin a bit. I was much gentler with the other one and the Pathfinder logo is still kinda visible. All in all though, I love it.

    God bless - DW

    I put a 20mm NATO on my 16mm Casio G-Shock Riseman with no adapters. It is pretty good too. The Casio G-Shock on a nylon strap is very underrated. It really does look good together like any other watch too.
    The MTG is retired and the 5600 too. Right now, the only working G-Shocks that I use and enjoy are the Riseman GW9200-1 and the GW6900-1

    If I can own a Rolex Submariner I would. I know they are tough too, their homages are tough. Trust me.

    G-Shock MTG930DA-8V, G-Shock GW-5600J-1. G-Shock Riseman GW9200-1, G-Shock GW6900-1

    Aviators on bands. I like.
    Yes, I am OCD. What gave it away?

    Did you cut the band to fit or you squeezed the band? Do you have some pics?

    This does not make my holding out on an aviator G-Shock any easier.

    Any of the 5600s would work with the G-Shock adaptors available at www.broadarrow.net I put a set of those on my DW5600 and they work fine but they're ugly. They're just a bit too big in every dimension to look right on a 5600. They also seem be sized for a 24mm strap - my 22mm looked a bit silly. I was wondering if anybody around here knew of a different adaptor that suits a G a little better.

    Would these adaptors work on a GW 4000 and if they would where can they be bought?
