    Show me non black G-Shock with scratches

    I got a black G-Shock and I'm planning to buy a non black G-Shock. I wonder if the scratches will have different color from the color of the watch.

    Depends - The gloss finish on some G's is just a covering, like a laquer and if they get scratched you'll probably see a different colour underneath. For example, my turquoise GLX-5600 has a small scratch on the bezel and it's white under the top coat.

    The matte finish ones, as far as I've seen, is usually the whole resin that colour, not a coating.

    A watch is for life, not just for the WRUW thread!

    Most of my Gs are matt black and they wear very well, my oldest is about ten years old and as there are no heavy scratches when you spend five minutes giving it a clean it looks like new and it certainly hasn't led an easy life. As quoted above the watches that are gloss or have a painted finish tend to wear on the corners and edges of the bezel and straps so you will see wear and tear occurring over time.

    This one has the tiniest bit of wear.

    Dear OP, if you, like me, want always your watch, even a G, in best conditions, avoid the coloured ones.

    I don't know about scratches, but I knwo for sure that every part is touching something (desk, your shirt) starts to become blackish and lose its colour.

    I had a white 6900 and red 7900, after VERY LIGHT USE, i moved to black resins.

    Then, if you don't care too much, it's OK, but I said: no more yellow/white/red gshock, only black or dark green or similar.

    No scratches but on the steel keeper, some bumps on the bezel.
    Used everyday as a my main tool watches.
    No white 'dust' visible like on all my black resin G's...
    I choose a Grey G-Shock for that reason.

    How about the OD Rangeman--would that wear like a black G?

    Green. "Olive Drab" green.

    I have a green G-7900 and had green resin on my G-5600A for some time. Both show no wear or color transfer marks.

    @Mudmasterman
    I'd say an OD G would show wear and tear like a grey one, not a black or dark green one. On the other hand, those darker colored Gs tend to show that dreaded "white residue" more clearly after extensive use - happens on the G-9000BP and G-7900 I have, for instance. Which is why I now always give a quick rinse-and-brush treatment to any watch I wear as soon as I get home.
