    Never with a G-Shock, but I have noticed it with far more expensive watches.
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    Did you buy it Brand New from a Store or Some one who had it prior you? It is normally a problem when you buy it pre-owned...

    I brought it brand new, June last year. I can not get it to move, I have bashed the watch on the table several times lol. It must of got in when it was manufactured. I guess ill just have to live with it and hope it moves to a better postion over time.

    this happens sometimes due to fine dust being present in the air.its never happened to a new g shock of mine...but is usually present with pre-owned g,s

    i usually strip the watch down,remove the speck with a plastic tweezers and then re-assemble the watch only to find another small piece of dust or lint has crept in.

    it once took me over an hour to remove fine dust from inside a watch usind a toothpick.
    unfortunatelly by stripping the watch,the glass will pick some dust or resedue up and then to try and get that clean and streak free is an absolute nightmare!

    usually you end up rubbing some of the lettering off and then you might as well rub it all off and stealth it.this happened to my dw004..see pic below.its now customised and looks a bit different,but i like it

    it will bother you until you either sell it or remove it.
    goodluck

    Agreed. Very tough to remove all dust completely, usually makes it worse after you open the case and remove the module. Suggest not to do it unless necessary.

    Never happened to me with new watches but did once when I sent a watch for crystal replacement. When it came back, the second hand was pushing the fibre around the dial, was a pretty long one too. LOL. In the end I opened the watch and cleaned it myself. Needless to say I never went back to that watchmaker. No, I'll just call him a battery-changer. Incompetent fool damaged my mum's vintage wind-up too. To think that he had that shop for 30 over years, can't even do a simple crystal replacement properly.

    Oops, sorry I went off-topic. My mum was really disappointed after that incident.

    Anyway back to topic, you can always hydro-mod if you can't get it perfectly clear.
