    GX-56-4DR for $80 on Ebay

    So, the seller listed this watch super cheap because it had "specially shortened straps". I sniped the watch with 3 seconds left, like you're supposed to, and it should be here soon. I'm just going to get a new band if it doesn't fit and voila pretty much brand new GX-56 for lest than $100. I really wanted an all black King for work, so I may just swap the band and bezel to black. I just wanted to share my good fortune with you guys. My wife isn't as excited about hearing any of my watch talk. Here's the link to the auction.

    I saw it as well but the shorts straps made me stray. At 80 tho, tough to beat!

    Where can you buy the black bezel and strap for the GX-56? I remember when I bought my orange King I wanted to get an all black deal through pacparts and they didn;t even list the GX-56 watches. How much is the bezel/strap combo for a King?

    Yeah, I actually saw it about a month ago and didn't bid on it because it looked pretty horrible with those "specially shortened straps" that someone cut with a pair of scissors and then smoothed out with sandpaper. The listing ended and then I saw it pop up again. I bought it on a whim, just cause I know I can get that band and bezel cheap. I'll post pics when it comes in. So what do you all think? All black or khaki green. I'll be using it for work as a Police Officer.

    the green is almost dark anyway, so go with it

    A decent buy. Would be better if you fit the shortened resin though, as it might not work out exactly as you planned. IIRC King resin is similar price to Frog resin (i.e. bands closer to $50).

    Whoa is the resin strap for a King really almost $50? Holy crap! How much is the resin bezel for the King, another $50?

    doesn't look like hes done a bad job, and for that price you cant grumble, nice one.
    passed the 100 now on to 200 i guess?
