I have always wanted to have a G-shock,but never did it.I need some idiot-proof watch which is simple to read and use.I have one Casio Edifice and I think they are great value for the money.My other watch is Certina Ds Action Chronograph,but the thoughts of some beautiful Mudman for etc. have always tortured me.
But, I am a man of the questions.So,here they are:
1.The G-shocks set standarts for durability and simplicity of usage,don`t they?
2.Are good the G-shocks with tough solar function or the rechargable battery doesn`t has long life?
3.The WR is set to 20ATM,but I think this is not real diver`s WR with ISO sertification or I am wrong?And can I use the buttons underwater(amateur swimming,not more than 2-3 meters deep)
4.Are they accurate?I read about Casio accuracy in their website and they claim that 15-25sec/month is normal,but my Certina runs +2 sec/month and I can`t imagine quartz watch with such awful accuracy.
5.Does the atomic setting of time work in Europe?
6.They are durable watches.You can throw them,kick them,even drive through them(literally I think),but are the plastic shells really durable and with long life?Or they destroy from the sun and the salty water after 2 years of usage?
7.Can I really get more watch for this money?
Thank you for you attention and future answers.I appreciate you`ve read all of this.
Looking forward you.
