    Hey guys.. new to the forum, also have a question!!

    hey guys, great forum have been looking on here for the last week or so now
    i decided to join up as i have a little man crush on the gshocks and im interested in doing a few mods to them.
    i have 2 gs atm a g6900 and a glx6900
    my question is that im really interested in getting the velcro strap for a new g.
    i like the look of the gls5600v but im not to sure about the shape or colour.
    i had a quick look on ebay and came across this

    eBay Australia: Buy new & used fashion, electronics & home d

    its a strap for the dw 003, is it possible with adapters to add this to a dw6900?
    im really wanting to get a double velcro strap on a dw6900

    Hi scotty and welcome to the forum! The 6900's are very well liked around here. Sounds like you're enjoying yours too!
    Straps. I'm not gonna claim great knowledge for this, but would rather "pass the buck". There is a thread near this titled something like "6900 strap". Also, if you searches the forum with just those two things, i think you might be surprised. Looking forward to seeing yours after the mod!
    Yes, I am OCD. What gave it away?

    Your RRP looks high or is there a high conversion rate?

    I can get a similar thing for 20 here :

    It I was doing this I'd buy the strap ^ for 20 and then figure out what I needed.

    however I appreciate your seems well pricey and it's more of a risk.

    The 7900's are my favourites, although the 56s are currently my focus. But nothing is excluded, except pink Risemans.

    This strap will fit a DW-6900 with standard strap adaptors without a problem.

    Gonna look like this:

    This is an actual Casio strap, it was a limited DW-069 edition from the mid 90s iirc.
    You can get some variants of those straps at tiktox.com for example and every now and then some NOS shows up on eBay.

    I think i might have a used blue one i would donate.

    The Adaptors can be had cheap via Casio directly in the US, the rest of the world pays a premium at Countycomm, westcoasttime or Tiktox.
    Ive seen the straps in grey, cream, white, blue, red, black, green, red/gold/green - so a wide variety should be available.

    Sometimes the cheapest way to get adaptors and strap is to buy a dead G-Lide with such a strap.

    The DW-003 strap is the type taht casio used throughout the G range , mainly in the nineties and on G-Lides. It will fit fine. Nowadays the black adaptors like found on the 5600 are the most common. I came across some coloured ones and hae seen 3 or 4 different shapes, mainly, again, from G-Lides from teh 90s. I remember white, cream, translucent, green, blue, metallic blue, silver, black, turquise and light blue - I guess there should also be soem red and yellow ones, but i did not hold such in my hands.

    these strap adaptors only come around every now and then? i bought some on ebay for 12bucks australian..
    i just need to find a watch and a strap that will work within the colour range..
    is there anywhere else other than the bay you can get good coloured straps? genuine casio ones?

    Tiktox.com sells some of those, but only the more recent ones.
