    Question How to remove shiny rub mark on matte black resin?

    Is there any method to removing the shine left after bumping and rubbing the matte black resin? When they are new they have a dull flat finish, but soon as they rub against anything they take on a shiny finish where they are rubbed/scuffed, I figured there must be some clever way to remove them.

    Get used to it. That's how the resin wears. I tried to tone it down by tapping a scratch pen on the shiny areas. Should have left it alone.
    Thank you, I'm flattered, but, please don't click any "Likes" for me (unless there's a prize for "most likes")?

    My friend managed to rub some away by using regular wet tissue that you get from the pharmacy...

    Just keep rubbing it and it should lessen the marks a little :)

    it is what it is. deal with it until you cant stand it anymore and then buy a new band.

    regular pencil erasor helps a little for a short period of time but evenutally itll just wear too smooth and theres nothing you can do other than be proud that you actually wear your watch ;)

    baby wipes work wonders. They are alcohol-free so they will not dry out the resin. I have used them for years to remove all kinds of marks from my G's.

    You have deal with it specially if you have three, four or five matte Gs on rotation. Changing their band/or bezel gives much pain in the wallet.

    I've tried erasers, and rubbing them, but they don't really go away, thought maybe there was some trick that really worked. I have almost all of my watches on rotation, so they all get used, maybe pacparts will become an expensive friend

    it only works when the shine is just starting out, as mentioned, once its worn down a bit theres no bringing it back. tho i havent tried a wetsand on it. some 2000 grit and finesse could be a goer.
