    armourall

    Anyone ever use the NON shiny armourall on your G Shcks and pathfinders to protect them atleast the straps ?? The stuff is fantastic on plastic rubber leather in cars and other stuff thought it might save some straps from rotting a few yrs longer on our watches and even clean up the watch itself ! ??? :-S

    Hi there,
    I've used it on my G-Shocks on all parts other than the surfaces where they touch my skin. That stuff is made from petroleum product and I don't want my skin to have a prolong contact with it. Others might have better understanding about it. Cheers.

    armour all will break donw the straps quicker
    we do not use armourall in australia as it breaks down the plastic quicker in the sun
    so i would never use this on my watches
    try just washing them in shampoo and a toothbrush

    Re: armourall

    thankyou version
    we have found the same here
    we use a product in our cars called formula 2000
    as armoural has a bad rep as to wrecking dashboards in cars
    it eats at the plastics and resin of cars
    so it might look good for a couple of weeks but after a year or two you may as well put your watch in your pocket as its going to fall off

    I would like to -very generally- corroborate what Dingosrun wrote. Without being in a position to be more specific, I remember very well from my Porsche forum days that Armourall was considered ... taboo. Also, Armourall gives a very "artificial" looking shine to everything.
    Unfortunately, I'm not able to propose much on a positive side, as I don't remember the "good" brand names.

    Some people recommended to, and I did -with good results- put some plain =linseed oil= on a cloth and wipe with it the "black soft plasticky exterior bodywork parts" of the car (there were a few), thereafter carefully wiping off any "excess oil". It worked very well to deepen the intensity of the color and bring back the shine on those "soft plastic" parts; the drawback being that the slight remaining oiliness attracts dust, which then sticks to the treated surface...

    But you might try it (like, first on some similar piece of "plastic", then on the back of the wristband), with VERY little linseed oil (just a drop of it), and very carefully wipe it off afterwards. Whatever you do, NEVER EVER use any product mentioning "silicone" on the label, as that would really cause problems.

    Also, for good order's sake, I understand our watches are PU, i.e. PolyUrethane. You might Google that word and see if you find some do's and don'ts.

    Regards,
    Paul
