    20 years old resin!

    Been used everyday since I have offered it.
    Changed the battery once!
    No resin rotting!

    supposedly, Casio changed the resin formula in the mid 90's to deal with the drying/crumbling issue (someone here mentioned that). I've had a number of DW002's and 003's (made mid-late 90's) over the past couple of years and never had rot with any.

    cleaning helps? UV or other solvent would also cause resin aging.

    that's an awesome G-Shock, i am sure it will serve you well for many more years to come.

    Maybe just new bezel and band and it’ll be ready to tackle the next 20 years.

    Used every single day in hard condition my friend is a carpenter.
    It got white painting spots, even super glue on it.
    He is all the time outside in all seasons.
    So UV and solvents? He got plenty.
    No cracking, no rotting and no aging.
    All functions works perfectly.

    And he is doing a lot of sports as he used to be a Tae kwen do champion. Even he has been in North Korean in 92 with the Norwegian team.
    Only the stopper on the band has disappeared and he has replaced with some of his invention.

    Well, these pictures should put to rest all the doubters who worry that their G-Shocks won't last long...

    ....but seriously though, is mine gonna last more than 5 years?
