    Unfortunately: Yes. It can stain from wearing long sleeves. I once ruined a white G-Shock by taking a rug out of the washing machine that was not colorfast. I don't think I'll ever again buy a white G with a matte finish.

    That's crazy. It just straight up yellowed. The good thing is that is some of the best resin to dye! Just need to choose a color. ;)

    Funny...I used to be the same way. Now it seems that white watches are all I buy! Especially the 6900FS-8 and the 7900-7.

    Common? Can't say

    But it is #WillSmithStyle nastee :eek:

    Have you tried girly face wipes, like makeup removing pads? Something without alcohol is where I'd start if hot soapy water doesn't work.

    The 7900's are my favourites, although the 56s are currently my focus. But nothing is excluded, except pink Risemans.

    Well the OP stated he never wore long sleeves; is it possible Casio designed the matte white finish to turn a vintage yellow?

    Has anyone tried magic eraser for this? My wife introduced me to this household cleaning wonder a couple of years ago and I've found almost nothing it can't clean. Seems like it'd work great for that. Easily took red wine stains out of our old off-white countertops before we replaced them as well as any other kind of stain you could think of. It worked even after I tried everthing else I could think of to no avail. Just like the name implied, it literally "erased" any and all discoloration. I don't know what's in it, but it hasn't harmed anything I've put it on. Might be worth running over to the nearest grocery store and spending a couple bucks to buy one and try it. Best of luck!

    I can't help but think if there was some sort of light source it was exposed to that somehow caused a reaction. You can see areas that are covered, or not as exposed are still white as can be. I had my 7900 for over a year before i dyed it and had nothing like this happen. It would get dirty and turn grey, but not yellow like that. Either a defect in the resin or exposed to something weird...
