This is a slightly weird one. I just noticed today that the buttons on my GW-5000 all make a relatively easily heard wet squirt-like sound when pushed. I'm completely sure this wasn't the case before. It's a watch manufactured in September last year, and I got it one month after it came out of the factory.
So, ehmm, I don't know, maybe I'm just writing this to know whether someone has experienced something similar , and... am I right thinking it's really moisture that has somehow gotten inside the watch? I know the GW-5000 buttons are double sealed, so maybe there's moisture in the between space, so to speak, and not inside the actual case?
The strange thing is, though, that I'm totally sure I haven't been wearing this watch in any wet conditions (even washing hands or similar) after the buttons last operated completely noiseless. It's not uncommonly humid in the house, and again, not splashes or anything like that after operating normally previously. Just out of the blue, today reaching for this watch, boom: little rubbery squishy sounds from every button.
If I push a button repeatedly for a while, the sound "wears out" and vanishes for a moment, but letting the watch sit still for a minute brings it back.
Sigh. So, yeah. Squishy squishy?
