    Casio G-Shock
    Found out how easy it is to stealth a G-Shock, so I thought I would try it on my yellow 7900MS (with black strap instead of stock canvas strap).

  3. Possible to dye G-Shock band to create fade effect?

    Casio G-Shock
    First post on the site, and what a wonderful resource this forum has been. I got into g-shocks about a month ago and bought a DW5600MS which I absolutely love.
