  1. Straps & Bracelets
    I am working on a small project re-dyeing a leather watch strap. And I am having some problems with bleeding of the dye. It was a originally a medium brown color that I applied a darker cordovan dye to. After drying for a few hours, I applied Acrylic Resolene to seal it. After buffing the...
  2. 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). I got it used off of eBay and the bezel was a little dinged up, so I bought a new one from Pacparts.com. Kept the old one because it's always good to...
  3. 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. Since then I've become kind of obsessed with Nixon's Time Teller P Fade watches (which is an analog watch). While I like analog watches...

    Just thought I would share these with you, maybe get some feedback! These are my second and third attempts at some camo dyeing. Both watches were bought new and were G-7900-A white ones. I left the one on the left as it was and decided to make the display negative on the red one, unfortunatly I...

    My wife has this BG3000-2 - Baby-G - Baby-G, Womens, Ladies, Analog, Digital, Wrist, Watches | CASIO America, Inc. and never wears it anymore because she said she doesn't like the color. Would this be considered a jelly? It says resin on casio's site. I wanted to attempt to do a dye job before...

    Started out 'lemon' yellow..... Then RIT 'kelly' green..... Then RIT 'sunshine orange' (in places)...... The RIT 'golden yellow' to blend the colour scheme a bit...... I'm currently considering adding a bit of detail in RIT 'scarlet' (fine random lines, or maybe small spots)...
  8. Casio G-Shock
    Hi! Thought i'd share this with you! This G7900 was my first G that I bought, and like most on here got hooked on them from then on! I get a real kick out of making all my G's custom in some way, started with custom paint on the letters, then progressed to fully refurbishing old G's, my...
  9. Casio G-Shock
    I`ve been thinking of doing a camo dye-job on my bright yellow GF8250, but I am having trouble convincing myself that throwing brand new resin in the dye pot is a good idea. So, I thought that I would shelve that idea until I had a bit of experience in the art of masking and multicolour...

    I just couldn't help myself........newly inspired by my recently finished scarlet jelly clad, oil filled 6900 surftimer with a mirrorized LCD shown here; I impulse purchased another 'dead' one with a view to making a non-identical twin (IMO you can't have too many beaters). Here it is in...

    Just thought I'd put another of my DW 9000 refurb jobs up to post. I have an affection with DW 9000's, they're big, chunky hard wearing vintage G's. This is one I bought back from the dead! Hope you enjoy! Commments good or bad welcome, was my first dye job. Will be another DW 9000 G-Lide to...

    As an everyday 'beater', I have recently become quite keen on the good 'ol G-Shock 6900.........and I was quite content with the two watches detailed below......... https://www.watchuseek.com/f17/new-arrival-immediately-slips-into-something-more-comfortable-555147.html...

    Hey WUS users, I was thinking about dying my G5600A-7 as it will get dirty eventually. First of all, should I use liquid RIT dye, or poweder RIT dye? Secondly, is it hard to dye a G-Shock? Also, how much dye should I use? Thanks guys :) Also, what color do you guys think i should dye it?
