    Casio Consumer Alert !

    I bought my GW700BDJ-2 June 28th. I now have 7 G-shocks... so I don't wear my GW700 everyday as you can imagine. I do call it the, "Mothership" and probably enjoy wearing it more than any other G-shock. Here is the watch I'm taking about:



    Well.. the consumer alert part is the band is showing signs of wear. This doesn't bother me too much.. gives it that well worn look... but I sure think this is pre-mature. And I expected so much from the ion-plated coating.

    Here are the wear marks:

    Orient: Black Mako (FEM65001BW)
    G-Shock: DW9052-2V, DW56RT-1V, G2500-3V, DW-9700UL-9T, DW-003S, DW-003H-9T, G9000-MX4, DW-004, GW-9200RJ-4JF, G-5500SRF
    Seiko: SKX781 Orange Monster, SNK807 Seiko 5, SUN017P1, SNP105 (incoming)
    Tissot: PRC200
    Other: Stuhrling Skeleton (1070.33161)

    Not good, but not a complete surprise either.
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    You have not told us anything about what you do when you wear it, so without that information I don't think we should be surprised at all. It is (merely) a coating, after all.

    Re: Casio Consumer Alert !

    That's private information your asking for there matey! Sometimes I wear a watch and nothing else at all.. if you catch my drift....

    Seriously, I thought the eitty bitty ions "bonded" with the stainless steel.... and I thought (how rude of me) that the coating would be more durable.

    Of course, your milage may vary.

    Good luck!

    I have an MTG910 with the black coating. I wear it occasionally and do not discriminate when I am wearing it, meaning that I don't baby it, and the coating on mine does not yet show anywhere near the wear you pictured.

    Maybe our coatings are different, maybe yours is defective, maybe you treat yours differently than I do mine, maybe... hopefully you get my drift.

    Now if you had pulled it out of the box with those marks on the band, then I would certainly think a consumer alert would be in order!

    That was a consumer alert among friends mikeymoto. Just here.. in this forum. It was my silly way to alert my friends here that the ion plated band didn't hold up as well as I thought it would.

    You will wear yourself out trying to react logically to my silly posts. I've been especially silly today. I'm sure you don't appreciate it.. but I hope some out there enjoys my attempts at humor and lighthearted banter.

    Have a great day sir,
    Gawain

    My Friend, that is a picture I don't EVEN want floating around in my head

    Seriously though, that looks like serious wear in a quick time. I thought it would be much tougher then that. The only coating I've ever had good luck with is the DLC, like on my KAHR pistol......it's as tough as anything I've ever seen. Isn't some company supposed to start usuing DLC on some watches?

    Re: Casio Consumer Alert !

    LOL......

    I sit at my computer all day, using my keyboard. I rest my wrist on the desktop.... I think that is what happened.... I'm sure if you don't sit at a freaking computer like I do, you wouldn't have that problem

    And don't worry Sonny... I've yet to post to this forum in my birthday suite.... LOL
