    GOOD Casio, Bad Bad Bad G-Shock

    First the bad. I gave my brother in law this 7900b last Christmas. He's a teacher too, so not much abuse. On our annual trip to the Eastern Sierras (Mammoth area), I notice the following pictures. He has a hot tub and does it about 1-2 times a week. Still, ...





    Ok, Now the good casio. The altimiter on my PAG 40 was spot on. I calibrated it as we climbed mountains and the altitude was on the side of the road. It was never off by 40 feet. I used my iphone to get altitudes of certain lakes and checked the watch. It was cool to see me moving up and down while hiking into and out from lakes. Enjoy. Oh, the last picture is a little treat. It was pulled by by brother in law's brother with longnose pliers. Hurt like hell. Mike

    Cool pics, Mike. So two questions.

    On the 7900, are those screws functional or just for looks? Can they easily be replaced by a real screw from the hardware store?

    On the hook, I hope you didn't pull that thing out the reverse way of how it got stuck. The normal way is to cut the hook off and then push it through the other side, thereby avoiding tearing apart the tissue too much.

    Till

    they are just for looks, but looks kinda cheap to me.

    Yes, it came out the way it went it. I didnt have dykes to get into that area to cut it. He said there was resistance coming out, and heard a little "pop." cool

    I agree. The exterior resin covering on the G7900 looks very cheap and cheesy. That's the "ONLY" reason why I haven't purchased this particular model. The outside of the watch just looks too cheaply made.

    Consider the "Gulfman II" as an alternative...

    I'm very surprised by the vulnerability of the 7900 !
    -have other people experienced this kind of damage ?
    -did something similar happen with other Gshock models ?
    G9100BP - GLX5600 (*4) - G5600 (*3) - GLS5600 - GWM5600 - G7710 - G2500 (*2) - SGW100

    No dykes. Good then. You were lucky. ;)

    I once watched how my father (a physician) took one out of his hand before dinner at a Greek harbor restaurant. The guy who had thrown the line and hook was very impressed and so was I.
