    Want to swap stainless steel hardware to black PVD - GWG1000

    Interested in changing the metal keeper and buckle on my current stainless steel equipped GWG1000 to black PVD hardware. There is a limited edition of this watch that comes with black as standard (Maharishi), but the replacement strap alone is over £100, way above my budget for a keeper & buckle. Anyone aware of another 20mm G Shock strap that comes with black PVD hardware I can have a look at?

    Good luck. I searched and found no one that sold just the clasp and buckle.

    These pieces get a lot of manipulation. Unless industrially done, don't know how long a home job would be viable.

    Do you know anyone in the auto repair biz? Powder coat it.

    Wit, even with powder coat the consistent abrading to the same areas will take it down.

    Had a feeling this was a bit of a non starter! Oh well, worth the ask. The 'home paint' solution as suggested is a non starter. I painted a watchback black 6 years ago (see attached thread on my GW2500bd) which initially looked fine, but after some time, just started to wear off to the extent that I sanded the back down to it's original bare metal finish...

    https://forums.watchuseek.com/f17/pai...ml#post4213195

    There is a 'double tang' watch strap on Ebay, but the buckle looks a bit flimsy, and I couldn't even guess if the spacing is the same to match up with the GWG1000 strap holes. And it still doesn't give a nice metal keeper. Oh, and £40 for the strap just to use a buckle!

    Stephen, either take the dive and buy the Maharishi so you can have OEM quality parts or leave it alone. Original and black look fine. Don't compromise the quality.
