    Discoloration of my G Shock strap and face

    Having only purchased this watch a little over a month ago, I'm so disappointed that discoloration has taken place so quickly.

    I've spoken with the company I purchased it from, but they state this wouldn't be covered within the warranty. Anyone know if it's possible to clean it up

    Thanks

    There are some threads proposing a few different solutions for this problem, but that's the problem with white resin . That's the reason I refrain myself from getting a G in white (in fact, that exact same 7900).
    Was it a display watch before you bought it?
    Cheers!

    The watch wasn't a display watch, it was perfect when I received it, then it just disclosures over the last 2 weeks, wish I'd known this was a common problem

    I feel the same as LUW. I have a couple of white G's but don't wear them for this reason. A new strap is the only real answer. They should be widely available from Casio for this model and a reasonable price too.

    Wash it in soapy water after each wear to help slow this down. Did you wear it under long sleeves? That can be a common cause of this problem.

    Normal wear with short sleeve shirts. Very disappointed to say its only lasted a matter of weeks

    Looks like it is time for the "Tsip85" treatment.

    Lol...that's what i was about to say. Send it to me and I'll have it looking like a whole "new" watch. ;)



    It's actually odd to see discoloration like that. White picks up dirt easily and will stained, but yours has actually yellowed. Odd to see it in such a short period of time.
