    G Shock run over by semi truck...

    So I was checking the tire pressure in all the tires on our Peterbilt before hauling some commodities today. I couldnt get my left arm in between the dual tires because of the G Shock. So I took it off and set it on top of the tire. Of course, I forgot to get the watch before I moved the truck and the watch was run over by FOUR AXLES worth of tires! Truck was not yet loaded, but its still pretty damn heavy. The results? Popped off the clasp and clasp-side of the strap. It forced the spring bars to give way, but I think I can just reinstall them. There was dirt packed into all the crevices, but it was running fine, and I think it will be fine after I clean it a bit and put the strap back on. Ive been wearing this watch to work everyday for about 2 years (farmer/rancher). I'd say its held up very well.

    I think you need to contact Casio with the story and picture, would make a good commercial.

    That was a pretty good one. Although I think the G Shock is stout, I think a Peterbilt is a juggernaut haha. Well over 1 million miles is no problem.

    I have the same exact watch. I think it's the G2310 Solar model. I think that I've had mine since 2004 or 2005. I gave mine to my little boy for the last 2 years and he's been wearing it on and off all the time. He doesn't pamper the watch and he's been wearing it as a beater watch and it's holding up pretty good.

    Put a new bezel there and you basically have a new watch.
    Just be careful next time, since a new bezel is quite less expensive then four new tires.

    As long as the watch is not on wrist at that time, all is good :)

    So can you simply put everything back together and wear the watch? If so, then you can't do much better than that :p
