    Maniacal protection of your G-Shock!

    I thought to protect some critical metal/metal contact zones of my MTG-B1000B (black PVD) to avoid scratches and coating coming off after few years.
    Casio’s precision assembling is so high that the thickness of the film prevents the alignment of the bushes, so I had to surrender.
    Here the pictures:

    Just stuff it into a high quality long condom and wear it in good health.

    Hey, question for you, what size hex head is that? Been meaning to pick up two in case I ever want to swap my mtg to resin.

    Watch you seek, is watch you find, or maybe just covet.

    I would just wear it and when I came upon a task that has damaged watch written all over it I'd take the watch off. That exact system has been working for me since 1984 when I began wearing a watch full time.

    Don't forget to get one "for mutual pleasure", that way the watch also gets something out of it.

    On a more serious note, I understand that you want your watch to look pristine as long as it can. However, the patina of reasonable use looks great on any G-Shock IMHO.
