    New here, great forum, looking for the G-Shock Factory in NYC...

    Uh-oh, another "new guy" :-S

    I did a google for "G-Shock Factory" and came up with a mac forum, and this one.

    I don't own a mac, and this one looked much better suited to my needs anyway.

    I'm in NYC, and ages ago I bought a G-Shock from a store that is dedicated to G-Shock watches, The G-Shock Factory.

    I had my battery replaced there about 4 years ago, and I can't for the life of me find the damn store. No web search, no phone books, can't find it for the life of me. I'm wondering if maybe they closed it?

    If anyone knows it's location or phone # I'd be greatful.

    Thanks!

    Oh yeah, looking to get a new G-Shock, this one...

    There's an Amazon dealer called WatchFactory that I've used. They're in Brooklyn.

    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    Hi Watcher,

    Welcome to our G-Shock forum. There used to be a G-Factory (official G-Shock shop) in Manhattan (458 West Broadway), but is closed for several years now. I have a small reminder of that shop in my collection.

    That G-7100 you are watching at looks like a great model. I hope it has the same size as the G-7000K.



    I don't know much about changing batteries in the US. If you have an expensive or dear model, you can sent it to Casio Sales and Service for a complete check-up. This will unfortunately have it's price tag. Maybe other members have good alternatives.

    If you want to try to replace it yourself there is a step by step tutorial in our How to... subforum. I can't guarantee the watch will be waterproof afterwards (specially considdering the back seal could be 8 years old now).

    Cheers,

    Sjors

    No, it's not the shop, but it's certainly good info to have... I'll be sure to save it.

    Thanks for the replies people (you and Sjors), you guys are great!

    Yeah Sjors, I'm looking forward to getting that bad mother.
    I'm gonna order it on Amazon come Monday (waiting for a CC payment to go through...). Too bad they closed the G-Shock Factory store. O|

    Thanks again for the quick responses guys!
