    Zebra Experiment (@ Isezumi)

    Per request, a few pics.








    We had some ideas which Dimer turned into a Photoshop mock-up. The pic turned out pretty well, so we started working;
    We took a Basic White, took it fully apart and started drawing on the module and face plate. We replaced the regular module for a negative one from a DW- 6900NB-1ER (which turned out great with the regular module..) and put the whole thing apart.
    Sadly the paint isn't sticking that well to the watch so next time we'll have to use something else.. But it was a fun project and it makes for a great display item in our bookshelf.

    I like it. Great to see that you are really into G's now Dale and I applaud the fact that Ace jewelers is now one of the big dealers in G-Shock. The brand deserves a place next to all the other high end swiss watches. Everyone that collects watches should have at least one G-Shock imo.
    If all goes right I will be paying Ace Jewelers a visit this fall together with Sjors.

    Dale, your only alternative is dyeing the stripes, however you will not be able to make it look shiny.

    That's a very eye-catching display piece! Should draw in a lot of attention. Well done, mate.

    This is a wonderful thing. I've always loved zebra prints in the right context and this one is done extremely well. I particularly like the fact that the pattern continues on to the bezel. If this can be applied with high durability, it will be a definite success!
    Keep up the good work.
