    Anyone deliberately "age" their G-Shock?

    I just wondered if anyone deliberately ages their G-Shock to make it look more worn-in or beat-up, or do you fellows prefer the brand-spanking-new look?

    I like the brand new look, and also the naturally aged look. I wouldn't deliberately age one, I'd rather enjoy it looking new, then in time enjoy it looking used.

    I agree, I like em unscratched but don't mind the odd dint after a bit of use!

    I don't like the feel of new resin though, feels weird and sterile!

    Watches are frickin evil!

    No way, I prefer a brand new look.

    I've seen ppl wearing beat up G-Shock and it looks terrible.

    I think it depends. A 'worn' look I can quite like, but if it looks like it was worn by something off an Evil Dead movie and it has flaps hanging off, I'm not too keen.

    Artificially age? Certainly not. It would be like buying reproduction furniture that has been immaculately constructed, and then assaulted with motorbike chains. Pointless.

    To me, aged G Shocks don't look as good as brand new G Shocks.
    No one ever works out and regrets it. You never go for a run, and then when you're finished, wish you would have stayed home. You never climb a mountain, get to the top, and say, "I should have just been content to stay where I was."

    Wear and tear that you've caused yourself is fine. It adds something, to replace the something that is taken away.

    I don't age my G-Shocks deliberately for sure. But then if you do have a weather-beaten watch with 'wabi' it certainly makes you less conscious when you do bang or scrap it against something. Btw that's what I like so much about my flea-market finds... no worries about dings and knocks when I put them on
    Here are a couple of them:
