In the 1980's I bought my first "Casio" (no G-Shock then) - a #1275 made in Korea for approx $30cdn. One lug broke off over the years so I could not wear but it still runs like new. Today I was in Wall-Mart and what do I see but the exact same watch. Well I bought it, now called a #1572 for $20 and made in China. Same watch 20year later! Let you know in 20yrs how this one is working.
