    Durability of Camo Resin

    I've never owned a camo G-Shock before, but the navy camo Froggie is calling my name at the mo. But what's the durability of the camo pattern like on the strap? Does it tend to scratch particularly easily, or crack, peal or flake off over time?

    I can not speak for the new camo series as I do not have them. IMO, you should be fine since there are older Camo resins around here from way back that are holding up well.

    BTW, I like your location tagline.

    Great, thanks for the confirmation. If the older ones hold up OK, then the newer ones definitely should.

    PS - Sadly the tagline is very true!

    durability is half of regular resin's time, if wear regularly

    those camo of the past lasted long because their owners put them behind the show case

    Casio implemented a new printing technique for this latest camo series. It should be very durable. Obviously only time will tell, but I've been told by someone from Casio that duration of the print/pattern was the focus and this new "technique" they used should hold up.

    arent the new ones essentially laser etching? so it will def. not flake or crack since its not painted on. the only thing i can see happening is wear from physically been worn down by abrasion and that would take quite a bit of wear ie. the rest of the watch would look equally as ratty so the "print" wouldnt be the main focus of your worries.
