Search “vinyl” within this thread and it should take you to where someone talked about this. I remember reading it a long time ago when scouring the whole thread.I have a question: what material and process did you use to cover the little square between 2 links on the left square combi bracelet?
Sorry for the delayed reply, it's just cheap "carbon fibre effect" vinyl wrap from eBay, item 200546909742, cut to size

I wonder if someone can create a clear film for the glass but with the grid printed on...?I just received the AliExpress Tron kit for my DW-5600BB. Watch + bezel/bracelet cost me 115 Euros Vs. 715 Euros for the GMW-B5000CS on eBay (1099 Euro/Usd MSRP).
Of course you're nowhere near the functions on this module, but if you just want the look the quality is quite good heavy black PVD coated stainless steel with shiny petroleum glares between the links. Flawless white grid pattern and writings (drilled on the bezel, applied on the bracelet). Bezel has matching black screws and it is perfectly fitting. The links use small springbars so fitting the bracelet is a breathe + the clasp has 4 micro adjustments and the bracelet uses quick release pin springbars at the lugs.
Does the RED LCD on the AR bother you too much? That's a lot of leftover unused parts from the sounds of it.Opinions needed.
I could get a good deal on GW-B5600GZ-1ER for 93USD. I am thinking about buying it and using it to mod my GW-B5600AR. I would use a black buckle, bezel and module from gorillaz model and put in my GW-B5600AR. The buckle from gorillaz model is black, that would go nice with everything. The gorillaz bezel is black with grey "protection" and "gshock" signs, that would go well with the silver/grey solar panel on GW-B5600AR. But of course mainly the module for better legibility.
What do you think guys? GW-B5600AR with positive display, yes or no? Thank you for your opinions.
That's a very good point. I won't pull the trigger yet and see if this idea will seem okay in the weeks coming.Does the RED LCD on the AR bother you too much? That's a lot of leftover unused parts from the sounds of it.
Personally the draw of the GZ is the blue/pink dial and band, along with the positive LCD (though it has a graphic on the light which might be a negative for some folk).
My opinion is that if you are using 2 watches to make 1... you better be damned well sure that it's a winner (which you don't sound convinced of). It's only a matter of time before they release a more neutral looking positive LCD B5600 (one would imagine).
Still though under $100 for the GZ is still a great deal, but only to use the module with the NOW backlight graphic... that $100 might be better saved for something else.
I'm sorry if I'm a broken record on the subject and I can't speak on the titanium, but I could not for the life of me fit the stainless steel band on my GW5000 or DW5035 using the quick release spring bars. I know some have been able to do it, (I did manage on 1 lug, but it bent the springbar pin). I had to use combi-band's springbars.Are all the Alix Titanium Camo Bezel/Bracelet sets created equal? Is one seller better than another? Please post or PM me your opinions. Asking for my GW-5000. Thanks!
