    Carlos Ghosn wears a G-Shock?!

    Carlos was retained in Japan but it seems he has found the time to buy a Square on a nylon strap... A JDM?
    This guy is rich at millions.
    Anyway for his press call yesterday in Lebanon, after he has escaped from the Empire of the Rising Sun, he got his G proudly on his wrist.
    Secret message or lucky charm from his evasion?
    Or...
    Eventually he loves Japan!

    Well I know his escape was very shrewd, maybe that was part of his disguise.

    When you're jumping bail, fleeing a country, escaping in a box and leaving on a (private) jet plane, timing is of the greatest importance hence a casio. Seems even a rich guy can see the merit of an inexpensive quartz watch for accurate timekeeping. Guess all the fancy windy uppy expensive watches are best used for dominance displays and stem measuring contests

    Keep this picture for next time when someone asks in the forum how a G goes with formal wear.

    It’s more that a formal wear can go with a G.

    It looks like a DW5600BBN. It's not just any G-Shock. Here is what casio has to say about it:

    "The monotone coloring of this watch give it a bold and powerful look that is suitable for any situation where the going might get tough."

    "CORDURA fabrics are woven from fibres characterized by extraordinary strength and durablity.
    They are frequently used in outdoor gear and luggage, items that require particularly high levels of durability."

    Poor Carlos doesn't yet realize it's a tracking device planted in his holding cell by the Japanese government.
    "When the shadow of the sash appeared in the curtains it was between seven and eight o'clock and then I was in time again, hearing the watch. It was Grandfather's and when Father gave it to me he said I give you the mausoleum of all hope and desire.... I give it to you not that you may remember time, but that you might forget it now and then for a moment and not spend all your breath trying to conquer it."
    --William Faulkner, The Sound and the Fury (1929)
