Fascinating How-To on the watchuseek watch forums on taking a G-Shock DW-5600 and converting its LCD screen into a negative display. The process itself isn't rocket science, but taking the watch apart requires some careful surgical precision. The guide is a few years old, but the cool factor still high.

You’ve all probably seen my various attempts at stealthing a few of my G-Shocks. My Stealth Mudman and my basic bezel stealthing projects for example. Both of which were relatively straight forward. The Mudman was largely a swapping and dyeing project and the bezel stealthing was just a matter of removing the lettering off my DW-5600 — both were fun to do though.

This project was a little more adventurous for me and as you will see quite a bit more complicated. It involves doing some pretty nasty things to the screen of a G-Shock, so if you’re faint hearted this is probably not the ideal DIY project for you. If you’re still reading this and, like me, desperately want to try reversing the display of one of your watches — read on.
