I'm also a little puzzled; but it occurs to me, having had the gauges 
apart once, that someone with a little competence in computer graphics 
(Illustrator, CorelDraw) could draw up a perfectly convincing white gauge 
face, print it out on high quality stock, and attach it over the original 
face using a removable adhesive such as rubber cement. This would give 
you a chance to evaluate the concept at the cost of about 10 worth of 
paper, instead of a few hundred $ in gauges. Using a color laserprinter 
at Kinko's (rather than an inkjet)  and having it laminated should make 
it durable enough to last for months, or even years if garaged.

Just a wild idea that came to mind...
