Just buy black parts.
^^this^^

Honestly, with the black innards it will be a lot less noticeable, especially on wrist (seeing skin instead of a bright white table through it). If you think the yellowing might bother you just swap it to black... or buy a black one to begin with.

Here is a pic of a clear G I’ve had for a couple of years next to some newer clear ones. It definitely will turn yellow over time but it never really bothered me because it doesn’t look dirty like some lighter colored resin does when it ages. I leave all of my watches on top of my dresser and my place gets quite a bit of sun. I’m wondering if keeping them out of the light might keep them looking fresher longer?

I keep all of my jellys/transparents in a window-less watch box. Light/sun I think does promote yellowing. Maybe sweat too, idk.

Honestly, I impulse bought both Skeleton models BECAUSE of the transparent cases (I love the aesthetic). I also considered the Hidden Coast model for the transparent case as well. The solid cases currently don't interest me that much.

My plan to dye it is so they at least become "Smoked" Transparent. I don't want to go all the way to opaque :p

I got the idea from Gsyoku's video. The result looks pretty great (but I still prefer the original clear/white look).
