    Module/LCD swap, GW7900 and GR7900

    So, recently got a GR7900KG-3 off the good ol' bay (sent with a CR1616 inside )
    As soon as I got it, sorted out the buttons not working (grabbed a CTL1616 out of another watch for now) I finally realized this module does NOT have Atomic!

    So, my situation is this:

    Take the module from the GW7900, stick it in the GR7900 casing, that way I have that military green casing and the crystal, but I would prefer the LCD from the GR7900 (has a hint of orange in the numbers, or I am just being crazy)

    Since the one watch is atomic, and the other isn't, can I swap LCDs on the modules? They look to be identical...

    If no one has any previous experience with this, I'll probably just try it anyway for the sake of science :D

    yeah, you can swap but be careful, i just messed up another module while conducting "experiments" with the LCD, now digits are not coming up equally

    Just swapped it, works like a charm! Now I have that hint of orange PLUS the atomic feature! Whoohoo!

    Was pretty straightforward, just pop the clips, peel in half carefully, not dropping springs, switch fronts :D

    Nothing to see here, just a normal GR7900....



    Wait a minute....



    Does that make this watch a GR-W7900? XD

    And yes, I did the black screws. Favorite quick quick quick mod.

    Why are you posting the exact same thing in multiple threads (six so far)? Please stop.

    You see no pictures in my post?
    Photobucket decided to lock my pics behind a 40$/month prescription service.
    I used their services since 2009 so the most of my old threads have Photobucket pics inside.
    If you stumble across one of those threads and want to see the pic, PM me and i will re-attach it.
    What can we learn from all the lost information?
    1. never trust cloud services
    2. always keep control of your data

    If this is a bot, it is hilariously specific. GW7900 color appreciation bot!
