    Repainting Of GW-9200 EL button

    rare case here..for some reason, the 'G' on my Gw-9200 Riseman EL button has chipped off.. (dont ask me how, it just did ). is there any paint suitable for repainting it? oil-based? latex based? the surface feels like aluminium to me, or is it stainless steel?

    anyone?:thanks

    very strange lol. I believe it is stainless steel, going by DougFNJ's review of the watch if that helps.

    I use enamel-based paint for lettering. Here in the US they have this brand called "Testor's" which is popular with hobbyists for painting model cars and planes. I am not sure if it is sold in Malaysia, but I would recommend you look into that type of paint.
