    I think you have not only cleaned your G-Shock, but also prolonged the resin's lifetime.

    Pic 1 is at 11.33 am; pic 5 is at 12.50pm

    But, the difference is in the detail shots; the 'crud' on the face, just near where the bezel sits; could only be cleared out by removing the bezel. (detail shot before is a close-up of pic 1; and detail shot after is a close up of pic 5).

    :thanks , and to others too; for the positive comments

    mansrow, You need to wear your watch for it to need a cleaning. And as all we ever, and I mean EVER, see you wearing is your muddie, that is the only one that likely needs a proper bathing.

    Eeeew! After that I really need to clean my PRG40 more thoroughly! I´ll probably find poo, blood and vomit under the bezel!

    Anything I should be aware of before I loosen the screws on the back case? i don´t want it to be twist - sproing! - destroyed!
