    Hi all... Question about Neg Display GW7900...

    I have a GW7900 that has the Neg display and I really care for it all that much... can I do something to change it to Pos display??? I really love the features just never warmed to the Neg Display...

    Sure, the method for changing to positive display would be the same as changing to negative. You just need to buy some polarizing film.

    Why didn't you buy the GW-7900 with positive display in the first place?

    Maybe you can find someone whoŽd like to have a neg display on his positive 7900 and you can swap the modules?!

    Because it wasn't available when I bought mine... and I thought it looked cool and the reviews said it had good readability... well not for my 50yo eyes... and where I work lighting not the best for NEG and well its just not making me feel it... you never bought something you later didn't like?

    Well, i thought the bezel design was different on both and you maybe liked the one of the neg. display one better - if you donŽt mind, then swapping the whole watch makes more sense, no question.

    Sure I did. Usually I flip such things or give them away.

    If I were you I'd simply sell the negative display one here on the sales forum and buy a positive display one with the funds and a small cash top-up. Good luck.

    I agree with you
    my 50+ eyes cannot read the display except in bright sunlight
    sold mine and have 2 positive display GW7900's on the way
    remember - a watch you cannot read is just jewellery :)
