    Picture Stealthed DW-5900

    Hi guys

    I recently acquired an old DW-5900


    It came with the aftermarket "Brazil bezel".


    For some reason that I can't understand the brazil bezels use the red colors for the top and bottom letter and the white color for the writing on the sides (opposite to the original bezels)

    Since I do not really like this alternative color arrangement on the brazil bezels, I decided to try to stealth the bezel and see how it works out.

    I will most likely try to get an original bezel, but this was a fun experiment.



    Sure I am not the best at this paint removal stuff, still have to clean some of the remaining paint in the letters and such, but you should still get a pretty good idea how this looks.

    It came out pretty nice!

    I also don't understand why the reverse scheme of colors ; the original scheme looks so much better.
    Cheers!

    I generally prefer stealthy bezels or bezels with subdued colors such as grey, so this looks much better to me than the original colors. Nice work!

    Looks much better, you can appreciate all the detail on the face now without being distracted by the bright lettering.

    I kinda prefer they way Brazil letters are colored, g-shock in red looks nicer.

    But this is amazing, really like the stealth black ops look Great work

    By the way... Seller samimadrid has genuine 5900 bezel and strap for 36 € + shipping. Many of us bought NOS 5600c bezels from him recently.

    Not sure the exact bloodlines, but probably something like great grandfather of the 6900 ;)
