    Stealthers vs Non-stealthers

    Just thought I'd start discussions on this topic. I see there are a few who like to stealth their G-Shocks to the max. The popluar model for stealthing being the trusty old 6900 series.

    I personally am not inclined to stealth or dye my watch band and bezels. Not sure why, just doesn't appeal to me, I tend to like to keep the watch (especially a new watch) as original as possible (the way Casio built / coloured it).

    Don't get me wrong, I really like the results of your stealth jobs, they look great. I just can't get excited / motivated to do it.

    Which camp do you belong to?

    I am starting to warm up to some mods but it would have to be on extra parts ie second set of bezel/straps.

    I appreciate stealth mods; I've seen some outstanding and even now classic jobs in the forum. But I'd say I'm in the factory stealthed camp, that is, I'm for stealthed reverse LCD models as they are released by Casio, like the GW5500-1AJF or the GWM5600BC-1JF.

    I've just picked up 3 x preloved G-Ravens. (DW-5600BM-1ZJF, DW-6900BM-1MJF and G-2000BM-1MJF) Coming from Japan. Will post pics for you once they turn up and after I clean them up.

    I've got to admit that the so called " stealthed " versions aren't really my cup of tea. I mean, they are black, yes, so what's all that about? Once you've seen one black G-Shock with an unreadable reversed display, you've seen them all ...

    It must be the artist in me but I like colourful G's like the early surfing G-Lides and watches utilising the colourful cloth and velcro straps that Casio make.

    So I'm a vote for colour, definitely and will someone please tell me, what is the point of an all black version .... .... stealthed for what? What do you guys who have black G-shocks actually need them for, burglary? ....

    Re: Stealthers vs Non-stealthers

    I do both,

    stealthing and keeping in original shape.
    Depends on the model.

    Playing around with the colors is fun!

    Of course the cheaper and available DW-6900/6600/5600 are somewhat expendable. So stealthing these models is less dangerous for the wallet.

    Im somewhat reluctant to play arounf with a vintage MRG.....

    Re: Stealthers vs Non-stealthers

    Generally i don't like stealthing..i love funky red and orange buttons in dark coloured bezels and i want to see the logo of the watch because its one of the reasons i bought it. This is the reason i don't like many special models...they don't have the "casio" logo on the dial..instead of this they have ugly (Bape etc...logos)

    Sometimes though, some models scream to be moded! Especially cheap and good models like 6900..i'm talking about general modding, not stealthing. Stealthing doesn't look good in every watch IMO...

    Re: Stealthers vs Non-stealthers

    I Love the Stealth ones. They are out of the ordinary.
    I've always liked to personalize things I own. Doesn't
    matter what they are. To me, a lot of times G's look
    too Gaudy...big Red G-Shock Colored lettering around
    the outside. Face it, if you are even remotely used to
    G-Shocks, you instinctlively know what the buttons do,
    you don't need it written on the bezel. I like the Custom
    dye jobs even better. It's all about having something
    different from the "herd" I find very few G's pleasing to
    look at in their stock form. The Frogman and Atomic
    Gulfman models are about the only ones I like that are
    stock.
    In reverse of what ArtistMike said.........once you seen
    a stock 6900 or 5600, you've seen them all
