    Where is the polarizing film on a G-6900?

    I'm still trying to convert my G-6900-CC-6 into a Solar and Atomic GW-6900. The Forum was very helpful in letting me know that the GW module should fit. I finally got around to getting the part number (1033 2356) from Casio. It goes for $60.

    I have one question though. Where is the polarizing film itself? Is it stuck on the face of the module or is it stuck to the back of the face/dial? In additon to getting the Atomic feature, I'm also trying to convert my watch to a positive display to make it more legible, so I'm trying to figure out whether a new module will do that job by itself or if I need some new film too...

    Thanks everyone!

    it is on the module itself, stuck onto the glass of the lcd with some adhesive.

    Soul05 is right, There is a layer on top and one below the glass - to invert the display, removinga nd replacing the top one will do.

    May i ask why you would try to put the module inside the G-6900? I guess for 60,- $ you could easily get a used GW in the States ?! Not that i would not execute mods that rwather make no sens technically or financial, but i am curious about your motivation.

    Pretty simple actually. I LOVE the purple on my 6900CC-6 but I really can't read the negative display, so I wanted to change it to a positive display. I was originally going to change the film but thought the reversed display would still have legibility issues.

    I then thought I'd get the module from a G6900A for better visibility...

    Then it occurred to me that if I was going to go to the trouble of replacing the module, why not go all the way and get the module from a Solar and Atomic GW-6900 instead?

    All this so that I can have a purple G-Shock I can read!

    Just noticed this is a GW-6900, not a G-6900. For all you sticklers out there!

    What if you just bought a GW and put the violet bezel and strap on?

    Huh, hadn't thought of that... Good idea! Let me see if I can get the parts from Casio.

    Thanks for the suggestion!
