    module swap between glx5600 and gwm5600 ?

    I received my GWM5600 and find it exquisite... now I feel something special and different because this is such a traditional yet modern model.
    It's A class...
    No need to make a quick review I guess everyone is aware of this one...
    Just wanted to point out that until now the strap feels very comfortable for me. I quite love the module, but I've never been a fan of the solar battery, and I miss the moon/tide, that's why I've been wondering if it would be possible to :
    -buy a bezel and a strap of GWM5600-1
    -buy another GLX5600 (black or possibly a red or other color)
    -replace the bezel and strap of the GLX.

    I guess it could be done because the GLX and GWM are exactly the same size, but before actually ordering I wanted to ask your opinion guys (and girls). I have a few questions, assuming this is doable :
    - where on the net is it the less expensive to purchase bezel and strap of GWM5600 ?
    - is it easy to replace the bezel, does it require only to remove the 2 screws close to each strap connection ? in case the GLX is not black will its downward part of resin stay ? (it could look cool)
    - I guess no need to open the case so the fact GWM is a solar with some fine wire connections won't be a problem.

    Thanks for helping an giving your thoughts

    Yes it's doable, I did this myself a while back:

    Try tiktox for the GW-M5600 band and bezel but depending on where you are you might get better prices from Casio directly. Note that the band for the GW-M5600 is the same as that for the DW-5600E but the bezel is specific to the GW-M5600.
