*EDIT: Put up a clearer photo.*
I've had a bad experience with my first G. I bought my G-7800B about 2 months ago and it was all very well until yesterday when it fell from a 1.5 meter height on to a hard surface. At first I was angry because the metal bezel got a bit scratched but I was confident that the watch would keep on working, given it is a G-Shock watch with a "SHOCK RESIST" engraving on its back. But after a few hours I noticed a "hole" which appeared on the negative display, as if the LCD were peeling off. And that is not all. The hole has been growing and I am worried it will spread all over the screen.
I don't know if you can see it but the "hole" is between minutes and the seconds.
The warranty says it is only valid in Europe, where I bought it, which means I would have to send it overseas and pay for all expenses. I wanted to know if this has ever happened to you and if you know of a way to fix it. I've been wanting to take off the battery to see if that fixes it but I'm not sure.
I am really disappointed as I thought this watch would last me a lifetime and it lasted a little over a month. I do not know if it is something with this particular model or if it is a defective watch, but I'm having second thoughts about that second G-Shock I wanted.
