    Re: how REALLY tough is a G-Shock (torture inside)

    I was curious about what was underneath the bezel so here are some quick shots with the bezel removed.
    It feels very solid and I suspect there is a thin layer of metal which this inner plastic casing is glued to. I wasn't game enough to try and pull it off.
    ps It's a bugger to get the bezel back on because the buttons are freely rotating

    Im really impressed with the time and effort you put into testing the casio g shock. I think the "temperature forcer" would the ultimate test for a watch considering the rapid temperature increase.

    Great thread, great tests. I am compelled to resurrect this old thread due to some personal experience "torture testing" an old Casio G-Shock back in the 1980's. I was a Boy Scout at the time, so probably around 13-14 years old. At summer camp, we had built a few potato canons that shot potatoes and all sorts of other things (including, you guessed it a g-shock watch). This particular "canon" was not suited for potatoes as it was "extra large" and fashioned out of coffee cans (normal potato canons are usually made from standard Campbell's soup cans, the diameter of which being well suited to a standard potato). The canons were fueled with liquid lighter fluid, if I recall correctly. One of our gang of misfits had a g-shock watch, and somehow we convinced him to put the "g-shock" name to the test. What better way to expose a watch to high g-forces than to shoot it out of a canon, right?

    So we wrapped it up in a ball of paper and masking tape, and loaded the watch into the canon. It was a successful launch, and the g-shock canon ball flew well over 100m from the launch site at an angle of about 30-40 degrees, if memory serves. We actually had a hard time locating it in the shrubs and woods at the end of the field served as our firing range.

    Once recovered, and unwrapped, we discovered the g-shock display was indeed BLANK. Pressing buttons, shaking, tapping, we couldn't revive it. I then remembered that the master reset for most Casio watches was to push and hold all buttons simultaneously. We did this, and the watch came back to life, albeit at a different time and date than it left us.

    As far as I know the g-shock continued to function normally thereafter.

    So to the OP: if you really want to test your g-shock, put it in a canon and see how it does. THEN subject it to your other tests and see if it still holds up!
    Regards,

    wow amazing testing, amazing pics, no doubt this watches are tough as nails.

    I was washing my truck the other day using a hydrowasher and tought about making a test with my Riseman.

    Do you guys think the watch can take that much water at that much pressure without getting damaged?

    The hydrowasher is a Karcher
