Been lurking on the forums for a while so here's my 1st long post!
The 2 Dw 520's that i got from Turbobb a.k.a. Tim have arrived! This is the fastest shipping from the States to Singapore that i've had. 1 week from send out to my door! Thanks Tim!
I don't know why but when i opened the package i noticed a nice smell to the interior of the box, packaging and the watch. Not sure if this was intentional but it was a pleasant surprise. Oh & i noticed that the watch straps were bluish-purple. Nice! I don't know if they are old and have faded in that manner but its a nice colour.
One cool touch that Tim did ? He adjusted the watches to Singapore time. I was about to do it then i realized he had already done it for me. I guess so that i could wear them straight out of the box. :thanks
Its old enough i guess that i could not find an online manual for the watch. Thankfully its simple enough to figure out. Only downside for this watch is no EL. But hey i like it a lot.
As promised to Tim, here's a couple pics of repainting the bezel i did for the watch that was used in his retrobrite experiment
So here's some pics of the watches and a some pictures of the repainting.
Basically all you need to do is get yourself some nail polish(any colour works, i chose white to match the other watch), some cotton wipes and nail varnish.
Thanks to robocopu for this thread that that helped me figure out how to repaint the bezel.
Picture 1 Watches unpacked.
Picture 2 The paint stripped bezel
Picture 3 In the process of repainting. Used various items to make a temp watch stand
Picture 4 Done & Clear Coated too! Clear coat's not visible but its on there.
Picture 5 Size comparison on my wrist with a G9000.
Hope you enjoy my post! Still unsure how to do the pics then writing underneath that i see in so many threads. Can someone shed some info?
