    Never thought of that!?! But would you care to elaborate on how do you go by using it and how it works, does it leave your watch sort of greasy or just shiny?

    I use Vinylex for my casio collection. It cleans and protects, and keeps the resin supple so it doesn't start cracking.

    I've never had them get greasy--I armor all them with a soft cloth and then rub them dry with a clean cloth---maybe that prevents the greasy problem? I think it works great...I have an olive drab g shock, a black and orange pathfinder, plus several other watches based on the plastic/rubber combination and it appears to work well with all of them...heightens the color a bit ----and prevents that watch jam stuff--you know---

    Aerospace 303 protectant is another popular choice. That's what I use if I get a used G in and want to spruce it up. It is probably the best thing out there to protect against UV damage ect.

    I do nothing for mine...

    They were bought specifically for wearing doing 'rougher' activities (biking, camping, climbing, etc...) so as to have a reliable watch and not scratch up my nicer pieces, so any damage is pretty much just par for the course and not the end of the world (though they are still in fairly good nick).

    If they get mucky they can get washed with soapy water in the sink, or worn in the shower and that seems to do the trick.

    I agree, I buy the stuff by the gallon! Then pore it in a sprayer to apply!

    But I don't do anything to my Rescue, cause it's a back up to a back up's back up watch. You know incase all heck breaks loose an need something solar powered!

    I'm a huge fan of 303, its a much better choice than armor all. I have heard terrible rumors about armor all causing plastic to turn grey and/or crack.
