That's very strange, has ever it had a battery change? Can you make it look normal by pushing buttons?
Start with a battery change and go from there.

I'll second the motion of "could very well be the battery, you should probably start there."
You say that "The watch is only a year old," but it might have been sitting on a shelf somewhere for a while. If you bought it through a "brick and mortar" store, a lot of department stores display their watches so people are essentially buying a "demo" or "floor model," which means a lot of people might have looked at it and pushed the light button a few times each.
G-Shock batteries usually last a LOT longer than just one year.
Some of the GD-100 models in 2012 where faulty units. If you made rapid button pushes involving buttons on the right side at the same time as pushing the lower left one, the watch display would temporarily go bonkers.. Here is a video of the phenomena : https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v...type=3&theater Requires an FB account to view.
Perhaps yours is one of those faulty ones...
I Firts thought it may be the Battery But i see the back light is very strong and the numbers dont dim or fade. Yes I agree on it may have been sitting for a while. Now on it being a faulty model. That is new info for me.
Now knowing thats the light on the watch and the numbers dont dim or fade I didnt think it may be the battery. Do you guys still think I should change the BATT?
Or just call it a lost if its a Faulty one?
Hi guys. Sorry I had been very busy with work. Found my watch sitting on the table. I really like this Gshock. I would like to know if I should just use it for parts. I was just thinking would if be worth trying to find a used one that may have outside damage or no strap and use the module or inside. Don't know what it's called lol
If so what other models would fit inside and would it be worth looking into this.
Thanks for any help and info.
I wouldn't give up on it. Contact Casio USA, and see what they say.
