Hey guys, I was hoping the G-Shock gurus here could help me out with a problem I'm having. (Pics at the end)
A couple weeks ago, I noticed an oval-ish discoloration on the face of my Mudman. It is only visible in intense sunlight, but not always visible in intense sunlight.
My first thought was, "condensation." However, I seriously doubt this now, for the following reasons:
1. I can never see the translucent discoloration in indoor lighting under any conditions.
2. I have subjected the Mudman to numerous water resistance tests (full immersion, cleaning, showering, etc.) over the past couple weeks, and it has shown no signs of leaking. All of the functions are working properly.
3. The oval-ish discoloration is always in the exact same spot, exact same shape, etc.
The only thing I can possibly think of is some kind of chemical damage on the face that reacts with sunlight...but that seems awfully far-fetched! I'm at a loss.
Here are some pics I took opportunistically with my cell phone. Notice how moments later, the spot is GONE. Not harder to see, but nonexistent. This is true under any indoor temperature/moisture/lighting conditions.

So what's going on here?
Thanks for the help!
