Sorry if there are a thread of this but I can't find proper info anywhere.
I bought a GWN-Q1000 Gulfmaster and when it is still coming from Japan, I'm constantly thinking how shockproof these new analog g-shocks are? Can I drive a tracktor or lawnmover or do a little chores of hammering nails or chopping wood at a cottage? So any info is appreciated, has anyone got these analogs broke and how that happened?
I'm a construction worker and almost only one who wear watch at work, my Rangeman. It doesn't mind if I use Jackhammer or hammering nails or drive a machines which steering gear (or wheel) shakes pretty well. It works beautifully even very cold Finnish winter. I wear it under my long sleeve jacket and it doesn't have even a scratch yet. For the summer I may get a cheaper G-Shock for using with t-shirt and vest.
edit: I haven't even thought about it, but I also play Ice-Hockey and Rangeman is in my wrist under the Hockey gloves. I really remove it from my wrist only when going to Sauna. =)
