Hello

I wear my White Riseman every day and of course the watch has some marks (small white painting are gone on some edges). The retainer is becoming "dirty", brownishhh.

So I've decided to dye it. Not the resin band or the front bezel but all buttons, the back bezel and the retainer.

I've use the Rit dye powder "Royal Blue".
1 coffee spoon into boilling water (200ml)
dye for 15min
rince into tap water and vinegar (50/50) 30min.

I was trying to obtain the same light blue as the blue use on the lettering of the band but the result is too dark for the back bezel and the retainer.

I hope that the dye parts will become clearer month after month.

I think that I shouldn't have dye the back bezel and keep it gray as originally

PS: My riseman is equiped with a mini compass (22mm) bought on Ebay (seller:
paulynn_collections)

Here are the picture

Before





Be carefull removing the buttons. It required some skills

The white and blue matches perfectly. To be honest, it is even more beautiful than the original mix.:-!
