    new g won on ebay

    hi guys

    thought i share some pictures of my dw-004 i won on ebay for €3.50

    i replaced the band with a velcro one. and added some strap adapters.
    it need a serious cleaning, a lot of built up gunk and sweat. battery and seal change also.
    i am very happy with the results, it look like new.

    a big thank you to SJORS and KEITH from TIKTOX for all the help.:thanks

    hope you enjoy.

    You've done an excellent job there. It looks brand new.

    Hi Sereph,

    Great watch. It looks actually much better this way in my opinion. Wear in good health!

    Cheers,

    Great job, strap looks better than the original and for that price you got a fantastic buy!

    It's reasons like this that collecting 'G's is so appealing!

    Nice job, sereph. Your strap mods have made it better than new, in my opinion.
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    Did the strap adapters come with the strap? If not where did you get them from? Just wondering if there is a better place than America to order them from.
