I didn't mean that to be directed at you, I probably shouldn't have used the word "yours". I meant the specific users with the issues, as we are both aware, if the issues were wide-spread, then G-shock would be laughed at and their sales would be abysmal. Obviously G-Shocks sell well, and for a good reason, they are stubborn to kill, and built like tanks.
My Aw-591Ms-3Aer (so actually an older analogue) survived an impact that broke my wrist (my wrist needed a metal plate to mend it). The watch was virtually unmarked. Your body will break before the watch does.
