    No Green G9000 with NORMAL Display?

    I thought I've seen photos of green G9000's without the inverse display, but everywhere I see them listed at online retailers, the green ones are always black.

    Guess if there are greens with normal displays, they were released elsewhere (or modded). ANy word on this?

    As far as I know I believe the green ones only come with the negative display . I think a choice of displays on all 3 models would have been a nice idea on Casio's part.

    It's a burn they picked green to invert. I really like the green with those black buttons. Black model has RED buttons. They could have inverted the cream's display. That would have been popular.

    You know, I just pictured that in my head and that would have rocked! Against the cream color the negative display would have REALLY popped and stood out .Could you imagine if Casio asked consumers/collectors for ideas on what kind of watch they would like to see made?

    just buy a green and a cream one and switch the modules. the one you don't need or want then sell on ebay as a "special customized model" with lots of gain

    Or if you dislike the inverted display of the green one, just buy a white/grey one and order a spare shroud/strap in green... although I don't know when they'll have those spare parts available.

    Nice. A cream w/inverse would sell right away.

    So what's involved in switching modules? Unfasten the back, then it just pulls right out? Or is there something else that might not be obvious?

    Thanks for the tip.

    yes, thats all. its just a matter of a few minutes (most time will take to unscrew and screw on the caseback)

    Just switch the bezels and bands, and you don't have to comprimise the WR or replace seals. Just undo the bezel screws and the band, switch and replace the screws that go with that particular case (since the screws and threads will match perfectly).

    I was toying with the same idea of making a white one with negative display, or even the al black bezel and band of the GW-9000 onto the neg. display for a "real black" look.
