Ok so I bought this G-Shock about 8 years ago possibly a bit longer. It's my second G, my first one had a rubber strap and it was eaten by petrol/oil/other chemicals I deal with when working on cars at home and my actual job. This one I had been keeping for good until the rubber strap one gave up. It's had quite a beating since I started using it all the time, I've had to replace the clasp twice and every time I wear it now it seems the pins holding the links together break. It's well overdue a battery change so along with the failing strap is there anything I can do while its apart for sprucing it up a bit? Or is it generally accepted for a G to show a bit of patina? Anyway - pics!
