    They are nice, I have a GXW-56 in orange, however they pick up the grime easily, mine is now orange and black through wearinring it to work as an engineer. It still looks cool though.

    How do you find the, er, bigness of it? Seems even chunkier than a GW-200 series frogman. Interesting point regards the marking, will have to keep it away from the grime.

    I am looking to pick up the GX-56-1AER version soon (Black with red buttons and module guard). I have seen a few people go for the stealth look by using RIT black dye on the red parts. I am going to have a go at that and see what happens.

    Good luck with that, look forward to seeing the results. Where are you sourcing the RIT dye from? Tried a dye job once using dylon, it didn't go 100% well....

    You can buy RIT dye off Amazon. I have been told to get powdered dye because the liquid version can give poor results apparently. Only time will tell.

    Never thought to look on amazon for dye - went to Woolworths. Plenty of people seem to get great results with their dye jobs, sure it'll be good.

    I got an orange one recently. Very big but a I love it. Bonded with it very quickly. Great watch for the money. For those thinking of dyeing their watches, there is an all black stealth version coming out soon I believe.
