    I don't think it's possible. How about giving it a fresh look with a dye job?

    What will Chlorox do to miscolored bands/bezels? You may want to be a little careful, it may corrode metal parts.

    BTW when you dyed it did the orange dye not stick to the lettering or did you have to repaint that on?

    I like the uniqueness of it, even if it is "extension cord orange".

    Anyway, thanks for the page. If I ever decide to turn my white G-LIDE black now I'll know how to do it. How well do white watches dye into yellow?
    SPROING!!!!

    (oops! Time for a new watch!)
