    GW-3500 conversion job done

    I don't know if anyone here can help me but in a previous post I put up a pic of my GW-3500 and was toying with the idea of replacing the resin strap with the steel bracelet.

    Is it possible to do and would i need anything else besides the bracelet to be able to do it?

    Cheers.

    Think the bracelet for these models comes as a kit with everything you need. Tiktox list a braclet for a GW-2000 which IIRC should fit your GW-3500 > http://www.tiktox.com/gw2000bd-bracelet-p-2534.php . It's £95 though. Might be worth contacting tiktox to discuss what you need and what they have suitable.

    I bought my GW-3500B with the resin strap as it was much cheaper than the metal bracelet equivalent. Beware that if you do buy the metal bracelet and your a desk user during the day it may suffer from wear.
    They do look very nice though.
    I contemplated the same thing as you...so in essence it works out about the same price to buy the watch with the bracelet already fitted.

    Job done lads so here are some pics.
    I would like to say thanks to our host for pointing me in the right direction and that Keith from Tiktox was a top man.
    Picked up the bracelet off Ebay for £16 posted and the screws, rods and collars were £15 and the watch was a bargain price so i am now a happy chappy.






    Have a good day lads.

    Nice pics and it looks very classy indeed.
    As a matter of interest, how much heavier is it now with the bracelet?

    Steven, the bracelet does add a bit of weight but i am used to heavy divers like the Benarus Barracuda so it is not that noticeable to me but i will say the watch feels more balanced now while wearing it.
