    What model is this?

    It looks like the GW-7900RD-4 but on that the G on the black square at the bottom is red, whereas the one in the picture is white?

    Looks like a GW-7900B with the bezel of a G-7900A-4 (the GW-7900RD has black letters on the bezel) - here's the G-7900A-4:

    Maybe a red bezel over this?

    I think you're right, the writing on the bezel is also white instead of black. How easy is it to get hold of different bezels and how easy is it to swap over?

    Don't know if parts for the G-7900A are easily available - you'd probably best ask one of the parts suppliers or Casio directly. The swap itself should be quite easy.

    It's a five minute job to swap bezel, relatively easy to source, and maybe a 15 minute job to change the colouring of the letters.

    Very easy. Contact Casio Parts or an authorized Casio parts supplier such as Pac Parts or AmericanPerfit and let them know what you're looking for. If the watch is still in production, you should have no problems getting a bezel and it shouldn't cost too much. Switching them out is a s simple as undoing 4 screws, carefully removing the old and placing on the new bezel. Peice of cake.
