    How do you clean "resin fog"?

    I'm not sure what else to call it, so I'll stick with resin fog. I recently got an early DW-6100 & the inside of the crystal has "resin fog" from what I can only guess is from age & off-gassing of the watch. I was able to get at some of the crystal with a Q-Tip but there are places I just cant quite reach between the plastic insert & the crystal. I really don't want to try alcohol for fear of lifting any of the original paint. Has any one been able to find a way to clean up this residue?

    You should be able to remove the plastic insert fairly easily......

    Here's a couple of quick shots (looks a lot worse in the sunlight on macro setting) - you can see the resin fog, especially on the plastic insert. Not really sure how to remove the insert without breaking something:

    I used a cotton ball: pulled out a strip, and with something pointy and thin, "mashed" the cotton between the crystal and the insert and pulled it around. It cleaned up pretty well, both the inside of the crystal and the plastic display.
    Cheers!

    It is possible to get rid of these deposits. See this thread.
