I received some inspiration on the bezel choice from Dblock72's mod. However, funny story with the strap! I ordered what I thought was a black strap online (picture looked matte black
) to match the bezel, but upon receiving it the other day, I was bummed to find out it was a dark, olive green. I decided to give it a try anyway and the look grew on me.

What do you all think? Do the color combos work?

Looks good but I'd like it even better in all green! Anyone know what parts to order to do that? My favorite 56xx has an olive or army green bezel and strap. I've seen them here on the forum but am not exactly sure what to order or how to get it done. Advice appreciated!

Hi JohnM, check out Pacparts dot com. They have virtually anything you will need for any g-shock. Just be aware, that orders may take longer than expected if they are ordering from Casio direct. It was worth the wait. For this series of g-shock, I searched by "model number" g-5600. Don't mix up dw/g 5600. There IS a difference! I learned it the hard way.

That's the tricky lighting I was talking about. Your watches look matte black in that picture. G5600A-3 is another one that comes in the olive color variant.

If I want to take a basic black (or other) G or DW5600 to green, for example, I would only need to order two parts: a green strap and green bezel? I realize that the G and DW parts are different -- just want to know how many parts to order. Sorry for the basic question, just want to be sure I have it straight ;-)

yes that's right. Make sure you keep your spring pins from the band, because the replacement parts don't come with any. Look up videos on YouTube if you need further instruction on the how-to.
