    Motor Oil vs. Resin?

    I know motor oil does bad things to rubber and certain types of plastic. Is G-shock resin in the "bad things happen to it" category? Or should I wear an all-stainless beater when working on my car? Or mount a wall clock in the garage, near the floor so I can see it from under the car?

    I'd either just take it off and have a wall mounted clock, or wear a beater.

    If it's just a once-in-awhile problem, just make sure you wash with soap and water. Used oil could stain a light colored watch, too.

    I found these on another forum. Someone's not afraid to get a bit of oil on his watch! I couldn't read what was being said as it's not in English.

    My father is working in a car garage.
    His watches are soaked in oil and the follow up cleaning agents.
    3 years- one strap.
    Bezels are not that stressed, so they will not fail if the get more and more brittle.....

    From my feeling (no science backround):
    The cleaning agents like brake cleaner are mor a challenge to the resin then the oil itself.
    Oil seems to soften the resin.

    @ lexx,

    yes, I think the mudman is the right choice for that kind of work, though the name "greaseman" would be more appropriate

    as for resin: I think that it is basically made of oil, so there shouldn't be much of a problem I guess...


    regards, holger

    Wear a beater or don't care about it.
    Most straps are replaceable if not the whole watch with most G prices.
    There are lubricants which contain some solvents (use Pedro's for your bike), but I really didn't encouter any stains/rot/etc while maintaining bikes/firearms/feeding cats

    He should have been running the STW while removing the engine to see how long it takes for the entire process .

    It looks good drenched in oil!
