Recent thread where Sjors quickly ID'd a G-shock using very little visual evidence causes some reflection.
We spend time trying to identify which G-shock a famous person is wearing. Now consider the expert witness -- often a doctor of psychiatry who can attest to the mental fitness -- or lack thereof -- of an individual accused of a crime.
Now consider a situation where the accused was wearing a G-Shock at the time of the alleged crime. The average attorney would overlook this fact. But, what if there are clues "embedded" in the G-Shock. The attorney notices the watch and becomes curious. It seems unique. It looks new.
The expert G-Shock witness is called to the stand, he identifies the G-Shock as a very rare Japan-only model. He is able to determine this watch was purchased by the defendant in Japan at a shop. The investigators go to the shop, interview the owner, and learn that on the day of purchase the defendant exhibited fresh facial wounds, suggesting a fight/struggle. In the end, investigators are able to conclude that the crime was committed within 100 yards of the G-shop.
Now, imagine that the expert witness is Sjors. He is called to the stand wearing an impeccably tailored Savile Row suit, with a crimson tie to match the horns he has sculpted into his 'do for this special occasion. It could happen!
