Hi everyone - my first post here :D

What do you think about my GW-M5610NV-2JF mod? Black metal bracelet and bezel and letters painted with yellow nail polish. The display is negativ with red digis - pretty cool but a little hard to read in low light!

I'm thinking about luming the letters - I found this product: Pineapple Yellow Glow in the Dark Powder - anyone have experience with that or just luming things in general?

Welcome @squareDK, very nice 5610 you got there. I can't help too much about luming the LCD, but I am under the impression that phosphorescent powders are for adding to liquid or other mediums to give them glow-in-the-dark (GID) properties. I think most people who lume the LCD on squares use very thin GID tape, but I'm not certain exactly between which parts of the LCD they apply it.

I was not clear enough - I was talking about luming the letters on the case :D I have seen some examples of where they have used tape on the display - looks so cool but too risky for me ;-)

I just acquired an old DW5600E (1545 module) without a bezel. Where do you source the bezels in colors and are they all pretty much a similar fit? Amazon had different models for some of the bezels, not just the E. And some comments on the fit. I ordered a basic black but the colors might be a good diversion.

I've lumed the bezel words on my G300 to decent results, mixed glow powder with an acrylic binder. Not a square obviously, but here's a pic.

Does anyone have been able to check if it was possible to put the GMW-B5000 crystal in any of resin cases available ?

FINALLY some parts arrived from pacparts, order placed on 7/29.. so it took a little longer than expected.

Haven't completely decided what to do with them, but I have some good ideas. :D

@zveroboy That older bluetooth model looks incredible. Don't see those often. I assume the latest app isn't compatible with that module anymore, does casio still support the older app that it uses?

Was just curious how both my 5610's would look the other way round so swapped modules and bezels and have to say I really like them more now this way so that's how I will keep them. I do remember @kenls doing this a year or 2 back but was not too sure until seeing them in the flesh so to speak
