    WELCOME!

    not sure how to fix the scratch, but dirt, what I do is take them in the shower when they seem dirty, dry them, then put vinylex on the rubber. Maybe every couple of months I will take off the spring bars and take out gunk because it accumulates.

    Scratches are inevitable, IMHO, I know some people use a qtip and some liquid or chemical but I cannot remember what it was to get rid of scratches.

    It was nail polish! it's actually a great tip, it worked on previous scratches closer to the face, but this one is directly on the rim and it isn't going away :/ thats the problem here


    about the strap, whats Vinylex? :p

    it is used to clean rubber parts and it works well to condition resin.

    That particular model has a metallic coating which is applied on to the base resin, what looks to have happened is you have worn the top layer of metallic coating down to the resin, there is not much you can do about that I'm afraid, what's gone is gone.

    If the nick at the top of the bezel is really bothering you, get a replacement bezel online from Casio.

    That is definetly something i should take into consideration,
    how much does a bezel usually cost? and is it hard to replace it with the old one?

    DW6900 bezels usually run from $16-$30 depending on the model.

    and it is super easy to change out, just have to take out the 4 screws on the sides.
