The models dw5000/5200 had been the pioneers in steel. With this the Casio conquered the market. It is fact that the first models possess spare parts until the present day in many cases. The question is: Why Casio today manufactures G-Shocks of plastic resin with a useful life of 10 years? A time that they manufacture model on model, does not obtain to keep spare parts in the market, being stimulated the consumer to acquire another model. The fame "G-Shock" of the first ones if does not apply to many manufactured current models in plastic resin.The current models manufactured in steel or titanium is very expensive and are the minority.
I love G-shocks but we have a problem..
All The Best
