So how many of you guys out there w/ resin band G-Shocks have THIS happen to you on a daily basis when wearing your G-Shock, and have it drive you NuTs!!!!
I personally can't stand it when the excess strap of my resin band does this when the retainer falls loose, it drives me out of my mind!
So I found an easy solution................. :)
Go to your local hardware store and get some of these small pluming "o" rings. I'm not sure what size may work best for everyone as it's all relatvive to the size of your band as to what you need, but any hardware store should have these in bulk.
Anyway, so take an o-ring and slide it on to your strap over your buckle and OVER the retainer, so it looks like this -
Once in place, put your watch on as you nomraly would wear, buckle it, and then slide the stock retainer into place to hold the excess strap as it should. Now take the o-ring and slide it BACK down towards the buckle, so it bottoms out / stops at back of the retainer. If the o-ring is the right size it should already be kind of tight as it is on the strap it's self, but NOW it will also hold the retianer in place, and also can barely be seen too!
Here's a shot of what it shold look like from the inside of the band, to help in WHERE to place the o-ring in relationship to the strap retainer -
Finally, here's the view looking at the bottom of my wrist, as you can see the o-ring is almost invisable from this angle, and with a black band, almost no one can tell but you. PLUS it is EXTREEMLY comfortable and you DON'T feel the o-ring at all.
I now have these on ALL of my resin strap G-Shocks and the work very well, STAY in place, and have not broken one yet. Plus the real kicker is if I do, the o-rings are dirt cheap! Something like 20 or so o-rings for couple of dollars or so.
