Well , i took the advice of everyone who replied to my "jelly g shock" problems.
I decieded to dye the watch black...here is the final product
phoned casio uk,but was told the usuall story.no spare parts,strap etc avail due to item discontinued.
Its so frustrating collecting some g shocks when you cannot even get parts for them anymore
this is about the 7th time ive been let down by casio...anyway,still love the watches
thanks to all who replied to my previous post
merry xmas to you all
