    Hi diver!

    Glad to see you here too

    I was just searching this forum to find extra info on the DW-9052 that I just received this morning!

    The oustside quality of that polymeric plastic looks very nice. The windows of the dial look metalic inside. Is there a metalic case underneath?

    When will you pursue the series of tests? What is the next one?

    Cheers,

    Marc

    A very interesting test indeed!

    I use this watch at work and it was quite cheap when I bought it too

    So after seeing this test this watch is great value for money I think!

    Thanks for posting!

    Hi Marc, my friend !

    nice to see a French diving buddy on the WUS forum !

    I have not opened the DW-9052 yet so I really do not know if there is an inside metallic shell under the plastic case

    I have many ideas to continue the "torture tests" of the Casio, one of the test I have done is not that spectacular but quiet tough : during my last diving trip I have carried the Casio in a pocket of my BC all the week, the watch was not rinced between dives, have stayed in the pocket all week enduring both diving and temperature cycling (I was diving in the indian ocean with an air temp over 40C), as you can expect the G-Shock do not suffer at all of the treatment, not a single dot of corrosion can be spotted on metallic parts

    I will renew this experience in my next diving trip, but this time the week will be focussed on deep dives over 40 meters

    cheers

    Jean-Michel,
    Impressive test! I'm most amazed buy the vacuum test, that is something I'm sure they don't test when designing them. I think it would blow the glass off most lesser watches (the water proof ones at least).

    What you want to do is get access to a gas "Temperature Forcer", we use them for testing silicon chips at extreme temperatures. You could take the watch from -40 upto 150 C in about 10 seconds.

    Gas is blown through a small nozzle at upto 9 litres per second, the forcer can change the gas temperature rapidly, it changes the temperature of the surface you point it at very quickly indeed. Since the watch is quite thick one side will probably be above boiling point when the other is still bellow freezing point!

    I'd do it myself, but I don't have a spare watch!
    This is the kind of thing:

    Hello jean-michel
    A superb effort:gold :gold

    Loved the photos too, they just about pushing me over the edge. To think, I swore I'd only ever buy one G-shock and not get carried away (like some of you other "nutters" ..... ). Especially since you chose this model, which of late is kinda getting a new lease on life (in terms of popularity). To me, this only emphasis why I like G-shocks so much. Great value for money.



    Thanks for sharing!






    p.s. A chemical test. Perhaps with other brands of digitals too. There, that's my idea that I'd thought I'd float.
