1st off, I attempted to perform a search, as I'm sure this has been discussed before, but I can't seem to locate the right answer.

Just looking to find where you can buy new resins (bands/bezels) for Gs. Nothing fancy or rare - I just want to get my hands on a new bezel and band for the white 7900. Where can I buy one?

Thanks, both.

I've never modded a G before, so I'm not that resourceful yet. These links are what I needed.

Looking at the eBay links, is that a fair price for the bands? $45? Seems steep. The bezel being $20, which seems reasonable, plus the cost of the band, I could almost buy the whole watch.

Not complaining, just wondering if that is standard. Doesn't look like tiktox carries the band, although the bezel they have (quid converted to US pesos) is about the same price as the eBay listing.

Contact Keith directly. I'm sure he could always source the band.

Hm. I'm just sorting that there are 2 white 7900s, I thought there was just one. Looks like the gr7900 is glossy white (did not know of it's existance) and the g7900 is matte. I don't really have a preference for either, but I want white because I intend to try dyeing. I know the matte white can be dyed, can glossy resin be dyed?

Ebay = expensive. I don't use it unless it's discontinued and ebay is the only choice. Don't know where "between the lugs" is, but Casio and pacparts in the US. Tiktox in the UK. All really require phone calls to see what you can order. There is no place with a complete online catalog. Tiktox is after Casio and pacparts since prices are higher, but they sometimes can get parts we can't in the US. Unless the parts are very common, they are almost always backordered and take a month or so to get to you.

Thanks for the info. I'm located in Canada. I found both the bezel and band cheap and quick, thanks to the info here in the thread - I was able to find the matte versions from the g7900, as I still don't know if you can dye glossy resin, like the gr7900.

If you are in the US, Casio parts is the best place to start. Cheap, fast shipping.

+1 I called them today and got fast service and a reasonable price. However, I was told that there would be a 3-4 week wait on my watch band. Cheers, Bill P.

I think you can dye gloss

I haven't dyed a matte 7900, but in the long thread "show your MOD'ed G's" someone showed a camo dyed 7900 got faded away

if I were you, i'd do the gloss

In my somewhat limited experience shopping for G Shock parts, replacement bands in any color except "basic black" are outrageously priced wherever you buy them from. :-(

I don't like Ebay as a source all that well either, but -- since I'm in the US -- in my mental list it comes after PacParts and casiosalesandservice, and before "pay extra for it to be shipped from the UK and wait a little longer." Obviously, everybody's location and therefore costs and experience may vary. :)
