    They're not called G's for nothing.
    Good test, thanks for sharing mate.

    cheers.

    Cool vid, thanks for having the guts to potentially ruin a relatively more expensive G in the name of "science"!

    But this raises a question, at least for me. I've seen several torture/tough tests for G. What about other brands? After doing a quick search on youtube, I couldn't find any positive video results for keywords torture test + tag heuer, luminox, citizen, or rolex (just quick searches, perhaps there are better suited keywords).

    Without a doubt G's are tough, but are they really that much tougher than the rest? Is it at all possible that most watches can survive something like a 10 meter drop...its just that no one has documented it?

    Also, this type of test only proves a G falling by itself will survive if you knock it over some ledge. What if someone wearing a G falls 10 meters in such a way that the wrist/G hits the ground? I'm no physicist but doesn't an object with more mass have more gravitational force to it meaning it would hit the ground harder? There should be a drop test with a test dummy wearing a G.

    I dunno, just some thoughts...someones probably raised these questions before.

    at the beginning I wanted to throw him from the height of 18 meters but no hits were as above, so I resigned.

    I vote for G Me to start the drop test with other brands. Think about it, you will be the first on youtube!

    A good shock test without risking much in the way of abrasion. Thanks for doing this.

    Incidentally, is this the Giez model GS-1100? There appears to be several other variants of this style such as GS-1001 and GS-1010. The GS-1001 got a particularly nasty review on Amazon for usability.
    In rotation: Citizen Attesa ATV53-2834, Eco Drives | Omega Seamaster | CASIO: TW-7000, MRG-220, RevMan, G-2000D, DW-5700ML, GW-9100 | Seiko SKA-413, SBPG001
