    Thanks Rick - love the author's view!


    Is there a cheap watch that's stylish enough for all eternity?


    An accessibly priced watch means quartz driven, and if by "for all eternity" you mean that you plan to hang on to it after you're dead, digital is probably your best bet. Casio's classic G-Shock ($100) has all the robust qualities needed to survive clumsy undertakers. It's no Patek Philippe, but its angular charms work in pleasant counterpoint to dressier outfits — like funeral garb.

    Gotta love the generic "Casio G-Shock". Like Casio makes one watch model called a G-Shock and it cost $100 and there's the picture on the left.

    The man who buys a particular watch to feel smarter or better than other people and the man who avoids a particular watch to feel smarter or better than other people are brothers.

    Think I'd be happier if G-Shock would not have been cast as the best watch to die in, know what i mean!?!?

    Better to have been cast as the toughest survival watch or something along those lines. That would have been a better match for the target audience of a men's magazine

    anyway, any press is good I guess, even morbid press.

    And they picked a stock picture of the G-9000MX-8, which might cost under $100, but is not exactly the most generic or common G-Shock Definitely one of coolest uncommon color combos however.

    I saw an article once about the brand of underwear famous people died wearing. I wonder if any famous people or explorers have died wearing G-shocks?

    Sorry, I haven't had my caffeine yet this morning.
