    Modded a Burning Red 6900 a little, which version wins?

    I had a spare composite combi bracelet and had ordered up a spare GW-6900BC bezel to try something out that I thought might look pretty cool.
    On top of the fact that I find the colored version of the Gw6900 and m5600's straps very uncomfortable I also love the red black color combination. My first though, due to the buttons on the MIBR 6900 being black, was to put the bracelet on with a stealthed black bezel and it would be completely black except the red accents on the watch face.... SINISTER!
    I didn't get around to stealthing the bezel yet but I have three choices to be voted on before I really take the mod to a point of no return with the bezel.

    1. First choice is stock Men in Burning Red GW-6900

    2. Second choice is GW-6900BR case with black bezel and bracelet

    3. Third choice is GW-6900BR with stock bezel and black bracelet

    Which one looks the best so far?

    Just for fun some group shots

    The BC bezel doesn't look bad, but I really don't like the bracelet that came with my BC. Way to skinny for my tastes...seemed to make the watch too...unstable..on my wrist..just wasn't wide enough..and I didn't like the looks.
    I got a white strap for the fs-8 and I love the black/white looks of it now.

    Put the red stock strap on it with the bc bezel and see how it looks.

    Have you tried black bezel with red strap?

    I may try that tomorrow and see what it looks like but my main motiviation on removing the red strap is that version of G-shock strap just doesn't get along with my wrist for some reason. I may try a stock GW-5000 black strap and the BC black bezel too as another far more comfortable option.

    Anyone know if the Military themed DW6900ms black bezel fits on the GW cases? That bezel is already "pre-stealthed" so may be a nice choice that doesn't require me to take solvents to the new BC bezel.

    DW and GW bezel are not swappable.

    I like the black on black with red markings ...
    Try also a black/red camo band and a bezel with red markings, it is what I've done on my DW-6900MS (still looking for a 18mm black buckle).
    The plain red band on the black bezel should be nice if you paint red all markings on the bezel.
    Keep us posted !
