No, the DW6900FS-8 is a flat neutral color with white button. I used RIT Dye. I had a pot maybe with about 4 cups of water or so and I used half the pack of dye, was that too much?Did you try to dye a glossy bezel ? If not, what brand and type of dye did you use?
Sadly, I've never had that much luck with RIT dye, always came out the same funky gray-brown color. Maybe I've never used enough water for the dye pack. I might try to redye but as far as I know, the watch will still be useless without the G button. If you're able to find one then I would appreciate it very much, I can buy off of you as well. Thank you very much for the help.I did only make good experience with RIT powder dye so far - i use half to a whole pack in about 1,5 l of water, let it simmer not boil. I usually dye for about 30 minutes, rinse with warm water, put them into a vinegar bath and then rinse with tap water. Until now no rubbing off/ stained skin/clothing.
This one for example was jelly and light blue like the 2 in the background.
It´s with Sjors now, so you will have to ask him if the dye bleeds or the resin looks like it once was coloured differently.
Did you clean the resin parts before dyeing? The button will not dye, it´s not resin but (ABS?) plastic.
PS: I checked my apares box - the 6900 case i have has no light button anymore, sorry. I believe i have a DW 004 body and will check if the light buttons are interchangeable.
When you actually go about transplanting this new button on, please document your method, Ive been looking to find out how to switch buttons for quite sometime now .I just ordered a light button from Casio USA, cost me $5. I also got GD-100 band and bezel for $20. This is the first time i have ordered directly from Casio, and it was way cheaper than I thought it was going to be. I already am putting together a list for my next call.
