    Yeah, I probably should have used a better title for the thread.

    ABlogtoWatch has posted a lot of good articles about Casio, and many good reviews of G-Shocks and Pro Treks. It's nice that they enthusiastically support Casio as much as they do Omega, Rolex and others. There is room for all of these brands.

    And we musn't forget when our own craniotes had the privilege of visiting the Yamagata factory in person.

    Heading to Yamagata with the new Gulfmaster...

    Good times.

    Yup, that's looks like an ESD (electrostatic discharge) test. Oh phones and tablets we used to test them to +/-10kV. Not sure what Casio tests them to but I would be surprised if their test targets are the same. It's done to simulate static electricity discharge when the charge is transferred from the human to the test subject. This is not a fun test because it can unearth a lot of functional and design issues.

    It is a well written the article, although I'm wondering about the source of some of the content, especially with respect to the depth of the information.

    Is this a true researched and experienced journalism type report or is it more of review of a factory visit including some Casio's own public relation material?

    ...or I just may be overly critical.

    ...I like to say that when I read about the hand alignment, I got VERY excited. Well, for better or worse.

    Ariel Adams seems to genuinely be a G-Shock fan, especially when you read his reviews of other G-Shocks. I'm sure it's a little bit of his own research as well as Casio PR fluff. It's a well written article and I enjoyed it but then I always get excited when there are pictures of G's being built on the Yamagata line.

    @kevio: fair enough.

    Still, I don't understand a few things in the article. For example this:

    [..."Casio continues to improve the Mudman and Mudmaster collection of watches to levels that its owners will probably never need. The pushers on the latest models are thoroughly engineered in some cases with up to four gaskets per pusher in order to prevent damage as well as both water and mud from entering"...].

    So what does that mean? Are the existing model lines of these watches continually improved? In other words is a more recently produced Mudmaster better/stronger than one that has been produced a few years ago?

    Good point. Not too sure what he meant but I'm certain that Casio is always looking for ways to improve the durability of their watches.

    Maybe he wanted to say for the next generation Mudmaster? Because as far as i know, there are no improvements or differences on this same generation Mudmaster.
