    New G-shock article on the metal squares, & other info about Yamagata...

    https://www.revolution.watch/why-did...ll-metal-5000/

    It has some pics of Yamagata and some "test" videos that most of us have seen before.

    I will say that the photos of the metal squares, are IMO, awful! For Pete's sake - I've taken better pics than those! But the article is still worth a look.

    I like this line from the article: "One curious fact that really ought to get any watch nut’s mind going is that the analog movement assembly line at Yamagata is set upon a floor space that is able to compensate for adverse effects to movement assembly in the case of earthquakes!"

    Ya gotta love G-Shock: even the assembly line is shock-resistant!

    I was in one of those. I'm saving this text message on my old phone ever since.Time is off (left it at our local home time). In Tokyo, it was evening local time, I believe 9.23pm.

    Huh, titanium or steel, I think I'm ready for a digital MR-G. I just love this concept.

    Some time ago, I even had a thread on the subject:
