    Glass-case connection

    I was wondering how the mineral glass and the case are connected in a G-shock. Are the glued/bonded together or is it just a very tight fit? Also I was wondering about how thick the glass normally is and if that differs in different models...
    Maybe there's some technical whizz how knows about this?!?

    For 200m water resistance, I'd suspect that the glass to case fit is enhanced with rubber seals.

    I believe they are attaches via some sort of adhesive or low temp solder! I could be wrong.

    I have asked it to myself several times, but I think it's glued with a kind of silicone glue. When getting deeper in water the screen is pushed by the pressure into the silicon, which improves the water resistance.
