    Keep it Clean !

    I have been cleaning watches, as long as I have been collecting.
    Ultrasonics loosten screws in mechanicals and their soapy, vibrating,
    fluid can get through anything.
    I buy a bottle of cheap liquid dish soap, Joy, at the dollar store.
    The cheap ones are very simple, no scents, no abrasives, no additives.
    I wet the watch under a stream of room temp water, and squeeze the
    liquid directly on the watch from the bottle, Be Strong !.
    Then brush every square micron of the watch with a VERY soft artists,
    real bristle, brush. rinse a little and brush thoroughly !

    VERY IMPORTANT !!!
    1. I have never washed a watch this way that is not in good condition
    Re. water resistance and at least 30m rated, No, NOT a Tissot T-Touch.
    2. Rinse Thouroughly !!!!!!, for 5-10 minutes. If it is not completely rinsed ,
    a slight amount of residue will remain and get into crown threads
    and bracelets.
    This will brighten SS, esp. brushed, asnd give a resin G new life.
    My whites stay white and my colors are still strong.
    You must evaluate each watch, yourself, I have several mechanicals
    that I have been washing for 40+ years, and a Gaussman for 12.

    Sorry to be so long winded, I am always pleasently supprised
    at how great my watches look after.
    Clean up your Act !! LL

    Sounds good.

    I like to give all my used G-Shocks a good washing when I first get them. I use Dawn dish washing soap and warm water with similar results. It makes them nice and fresh.

    You can get them a lot cleaner if you take the resin parts off the module, but you have to decide if it's worth the extra effort (and possible risk with older resin).

    Hmmm...cleaning tips should be included in that G-Shock manual Dudegalea was producing (if they're not already).
