    What do you guys think?

    Got bored with the current G stable... thought to myself why not interchange bands?

    Swapped G6900 (custom dyed with Rit sunshine orange) x DW5600MS

    Pardon the picture, but the G6900 is really orange in real life

    Yay or nay?

    I find different bezel and band colors are hard to pull off. The only success i've had is with black and white. Even production models where the colors are selected by "experts" don't always work. Matter of fact only a matter of minutes ago I changed the Red and White DW6900SC-7 (sorry sjors - i know how much you like it) to all white using DW6900CS-7 clothes. I find the boundaries between the 2 colors jarring.

    Funny. I just put my swap on for bed. It does only really matter if you like it but I do know that sometimes it's hard to make a decision because of your bias with it being your creation and your watches. They sometimes work better together when the letters match the color of the strap and the color on the face.

    Re: What do you guys think?

    Thanks all for the replies.

    I was, to say the least a bit hesitant to post up a thread, but i had a bit of time on my hands so what the heck.

    And... i didnt go out wearing any of the 2 G's. I just wore my GA100.

    I think i'll let them be a few more days and see if it grows on me.

    Have a good day/night everyone!

    I disagree with what has been stated. I like the square on the yellow, but I don't like the 6900 on black. Interesting none the less.

    I also tried doing this with a g9300-1 and g9200-1. below are the results.

    Riseman on Mudman band. The mudman band is a little wide on the bezel of the riseman. There's also a gap between the bezel and the band connector. you also need to make some modifications in the band of the mudman for it to be installed in the riseman. I wouldn't recommend for anyone to do this.

    mudman on riseman band. It installed properly without any modifications. But it's a little slim on the mudman. So both failed.
