the main point is that at least u know got moisture inside...so u can take it apart to dry the case and module...
then put in new o-ring and grease to seal it properly again.

It's hard to explain to you when you don't understand that there's a few different layers of glass.. solar panel it's not something you can take out and dry it

i understand.
but u also dont seem to understand if moisture gets in due to a bad o-ring...which also will show under the crystal provided got no layer there.

If optical glue is done on that watch, there will not be moist in between the solar panels, only within the module. And it will be visible to you.

On tough solar GShocks, there's two part you can get fogging.
Between solar panels and inside the module.

When you dismantle a tough solar model, this is what you get.

3 pieces of glass.

One is on the inside within the module, another is the solar panel and the glass.
That's where the moist is, and to fix it permanently you will need optical glue treatment.

Fogging inside the module still can happen if moist goes in the module.

Look at this photo and you'll understand better.

100% fogging inside solar panel
It is less visible because it is not a negative display

You want to live in denial, then up to you la..
But that Rangeman definitely is fogged up within the solar panel, it's just not severe yet. Do note that severe fogging can cause the ink writings on the glass to be soft and scrapped away when attempting to remove the fog in the future.

Look at the solar panel areas, it is not black but grey'ish.
That is a clear sign of fogging inside the solar panel.

Normally it will be dark black as below

lol.. whatever la, i love my watches and i take care of them.
Limited or not, i would like it to be as clear as possible.

And you assume i am "selling"? Lol.. i am not the guy who does this nor am i related to him in any way.

As least i am not living in denial wink.gif

And oh, solar panels when severely fogged can cost up to RM400 to replace.
While optical glue treatment is only 150

went from this to full in around 24-30hrs...

from experience...if i had left it by the window to take in the sun...it would take about 3 weeks to go full.
somehow the bluetooth squares take in power very slowly compared to other solar gshocks which i can normally charge to full in 2-3 days by the window.

To all guru and sifu here,

I seek your advice. In your wisdom, do you think this is genuine?

https://www.lazada.com.my/products/casio-g-...s684878758.html

If yes, then my next question would be... is the G-5600e-1 is a good starting point for a G-Shock newbie?

price implies its original but grey market.
rest of the stuff they're selling also looks the same.
but obviously u cannot tell if its original just by looking at the stock photos...so have to go figure out who the seller is which i have no idea who they are yet.

Better get from this guy, confirm original.
Plus this is newer color way

https://shopee.com.my/CASIO-G-SHOCK-DW-5600...2101.1371456798

Or if you fancy a stealthier feel, go for this
