    So you think the watch was a dud? I do hope so actually...

    If G Shocks fail from baby soap and showers, yall can have my whole collection. I wouldn't want them. We see this condensation issue on here every few months. I have seen it. As i suggested there are some "fixes"... But as also stated there are people who have "lived with it" for years with no detriment to the watch.

    Personally I couldn't live with the condensation... that's why I "fixed" mine.

    Now, a gasket not seated correctly? That could be. High humidity at the point of manufacture? That could be... but again, I dont see a seal wearing down from showers.

    That would be my guess. Like I say, we see it here every several months. There are many that would say its not a dud, it just is. But I have never been able to tolerate the idea of knowing it was in there.

    Again, though, as stated... many people do nothing and the watch performs perfectly for years.

    Cheers. I didn't want to tolerate this either, so I sent it back. Less for the money but for the claims (water resistance, temperature resistance).

    Hope my new G is more reliable :)

    Hi,
    I frequently manage to fog up almost all of my G-Shocks when riding my bike in winter. If the condensation disappears quickly when back inside it won't do no harm. There are not many gas-proof watches out there btw so sooner or later the humidity inside and outside of the watch will be the same anyway (it's called diffusion) - so I no longer worry about condensation in a watch.
    And another thing about the "soap kills the gasket"-thesis. Guess what's used in a soap factory to keep the tubes sealed? Right - rubber o-rings!
    So I don't think the watch was a dud and it's very likely that the same thing might happen with the next one.

    cheers, Sedi
