    I think it's the gap between the resin and the glass, should it be closer? Gotta check my gd-x's

    How is it that you came to have one of these?

    There may be a small burr on the inside of the bezel that prevents it from hugging the case as tight as it could. There are holes in the molds used to shape the urethane bezels at the factory and sometimes little spurs of resin are left sticking up which can be sanded off if you remove the bezel.
    I almost never wear any watch other than a G-Shock. My collection is listed here-->http://watchshock.com/collection/1471/

    Other watches: Invicta Sub-Aqua Venom 5733 & Coalition Forces 0225, Suunto Vector, Traser Mil-G Type 6 P6600 Celebration Edition, Luminox 3059.SAR and a few cheap Timex & Armitron

    It's a common "problem" with other G-Shock models -- here's another example with the same "gap" between the crystal and bezel of a GW-6900: https://forums.watchuseek.com/f17/man-down-831137.html

    On the other hand, if you stop and think about it, which is going to absorb more shock? A bezel that firmly presses against the glass, or a bezel that has a small "air space" in which to flex BEFORE it hits the glass?

    The way I see it, that "gap" functions kind of like a modern car's "5 mph bumper," absorbing any impact before transmitting it to the rest of the car or watch body!

    Most of my G's have a mild gap. No big deal. Still water resist with no issues.

    Also true, covered in the thread I linked, but (probably) important enough to point out again -- the bezel on a G-Shock is just an outer covering over the watch itself, and has nothing to do with water resistance!
