I've got a JCPenneys gift card to use, and figured I'd throw it at getting my first G to use as a daily college beater - wear it when I'm @ class, the gym, and so on. Out of all the few that fit my 6 inch wrist well, the GWM850-7 caught my attention the most. Thin, round, small, atomic, solar, large crisp digits, rally timer! But it only comes in white =(
I've look up some old threads around here, and read about how white Gs yellow over time, catch dye off of long sleeves, and just get stained/dirty over time. My question is this - is it usually the band that suffers the bulk of the discoloration? If so, would replacing the band with the black version be a good idea? (lol Panda 850!). Does the bezel also suffer the same fate or is it usually just the band?
If I had other watches to switch around with I probably wouldn't care, but this will be my only daily wearer for now.
