    Rangeman Bezel Screws

    Evening,

    Currently choosing between a Mudman and Rangeman, and as I am a one-watch person, my G-Shock will need to be both functional in the field, and look fitting both with a uniform, and a suit.

    I have ordered both, and will keep one.

    The 4 bezel screws on the Rangeman are too blingy for my needs. But I understand they serve no real purpose. So can they be unscrewed, sprayed matt black, and put back in?

    ...Without compromising the water resistance of the watch? I'm not an engineer, so I don't want to do anything that would affect the Rangeman's integrity. I know there have been similar posts on this subject, but I don't want to doctor the push-buttons themselves.

    Any advice welcome!

    Hey mate, you can buy the black screws (which are decorative only) on Rakuten or pacparts and swap out, or you could remove and paint and replace, not sure how well they'd hold up to daily scuffs etc.
    Wont affect functionality or water resistance etc as they are pop in to bezel only 😃

    They just push out from rear once bezel is removed 👍

    Thanks Mate, good news! Do I just need an ordinary watchmaker's flathead screwdriver?

    That'll do man, once bezel is off just push against rear of them they can take some effort to pop past the flange but pretty simple job I use a small hex attachment so I don't stab thru with blade lol

    OK, so if I pop them out (gently), I assume I could respray them and pop them back in?

    Correct. They’re not even screws technically

    Really? How does the bezel attach then?

    The bezel is secured by the four screws that also secure the strap. Once these are removed, and the strap is removed, you can remove the bezel. As I recall, it's easier to start with the sensor side. Be careful not to lose the sensor cover that will probably fall out.

    Thanks for the advice... so to confirm, and to be absolutely sure: By removing the 4 bezel screws (and preliminary steps), I'm not going to compromise the watch's water resistance?
