    Noticed it last week, just ran my fingernail around it. Astonishing amount of build up.

    I use a glass cleaner cloth. Just wipe the gunk away.

    Regular cleaning is required as the skin is covered with dead cells, dirt and oil.

    Hmm.

    No dirt on mine since I rinse it off every night and wipe it down with a towel.

    Yup. Lots of old sunscreen in there, among other stuff. I clean it with a wet cloth or with alcohol if it's really filthy.

    I rinse mine off every morning after my workout.... so no grimy buildup

    No, never. My body is made of composite material as well. /s

    Of course. You sweat, you loose skin particles, it's completely normal.

    I get a lot of dirt on mine because I wear it all the time... including doing yard work for several hours in 90+ degree heat. I usually rinse it off in the sink whenever I take it off to take a shower... keeps it pretty clean.

    I'll ask what I was alluding to in my previous post --

    OP, how dirty are your other watches?

    Or maybe he hadn't considered getting a watch wet, either. I had a coworker who would say, "I'd never get an expensive watch wet," to which I responded, ".... I'd never spend good money on a watch if it couldn't stand up to some water."
