    Picture " I just couldn't resist "

    Well, the wife, little man and myself were strolling through Wal-mart tonight and as usual, I made my way over to the jewelry counter, and there it was, ever since I had robbed the module out of my DW-6900 a few weeks ago for my 6900MS stealth neg to non-neg display modd project, I have been wanting another simple DW-6900. I couldn't resist, knowing I was paying about 20 bucks more than I should have, I pulled the trigger, sometimes theres just something about convienience that affords a little extra with being able to wear a watch home from the store, 2 things I have done to it since I've gotten home is made the G on the backlight button red, now it matches the red at 12 oclock up on the bezel, always wondered why Casio didn't do this, looks so much better red, and I replaced the stock plastic buckle with a nice heavy stainless one off of an Expedition strap I had, works perfectly.




    Experience is what you end up with when you didn't get what you wanted.

    Congratulations on your find!

    I really like the Red G logo on the light button, my thinking mirror's yours. It should have been that way from Casio.

    How did you make it Red?

    I'm also likely to pay more for the watch just for the fun of wearing it right away. After all, G's are all about fun anyway.

    Cheers...

    Yes indeed! Today I walked out of a store with a new $100 Baby G on my wrist and my vintage Seamaster chronometre in it's box.

    The red mod to the EL button looks GREAT.

    Thanks all! She's a comfy wearing one! For the red G Backlight button, sharpened the tip on my paint marker and lightly dabbed it in there, let it sit for about an hour, then came back with a little nail polish remover on a soft cloth, lightly dampened, and just wiped the edges and good to go!!
