    Why do G SHOCK BANDS GO Muddy/Brown

    Just wondering if there is anything you can do to stop your G from going the Muddy/Brown colour. I tried baby wipes (regularly), soap and water (weekly) but they still seem to go that .... brown colour.

    What color resin are you starting with?!

    I've got a DW-5600E that's 14 years old or so -- the bezel and strap were black when I bought it, and they're still black (although less "matte" and a bit shinier) these days.

    Stop changing baby's nappy whilst wearing your Gs

    He he, seriously though I haven't encountered this. I've had "the shining" as Mike says, but no brown.

    Any photos / more info?

    Maybe you are cleaning so much your G, I have been washing mine with hot water just when it is too dirt and don't have this problem.

    You have to watch out to ''window of opportunity''... That means you have to start cleaning it, before it gets too stained. Once the window closes, you'll have hard time cleaning it off

    I am a superstitious guy and I believe that your g shock is absorbing all your bad luck. It may be a good thing.

    Sadly, from what I've read here, all of Casio's colored resins pick up stains eventually.

    There are quite a few threads around here with titles like "How Do I Clean My White G?" and so on -- maybe one of those threads will have a different approach for cleaning that might work on your watch!

    Other "solutions" include dying the stained resin a darker color, like black, or just buying and installing new resin.

    The strange thing however is that the G-9200R has a glossy finish which shouldn't stain so easily. It might also be the finish coming off and revealing a different color underneath. But even glossy finish can stain as we saw from the GW-9100R resurrection thread from Chrisek:

    And here I have my Riseman sitting out on my patio so that it will sun-fade a little, in order to give it the "worn and loved" look; or, as some call it, some "wabi."
