    Question on G and non-G

    I am not sure if this question has asked before... but..

    All casio g-shock are tested to withstand all the pressure, vibration, temperature change, impact, etc...

    But what about casio other series such as such as Edifice, databank, Oceanu, etc, are they undergoes all the testing too?

    Word "tested" is subjective here... they know what design will make G... I doubt that they have "QA G-shock test facility" per say.

    At the same time I don't think that very many if any at all, design elements of "G" go into the other watches.

    If I'm wrong someone will correct me here...

    I'd also add that though the G's are probably tested at some point, other lines ("Edifice, databank, Oceanu, etc") aren't tested for shock/vibration. I'd imagine that all that have a WR rating (50m/100m, etc) are tested to meet that specification.

    Not to detract from any of the superior qualities of G Shocks, but non G watches aren't necessarily weak either. The AMW320-Ds (casio marine gear) that I've had over the years are not "shock resist" models, but I've beat them up pretty good. Only one died on me because of a mountainbike crash that left the crystal in about a hundred pieces. My current 320 has more nicks, dings, and scratches than what I like, but it's never missed a beat.

    While G Shocks are far tougher than many watches, I don't think that means other watches can't take abuse and keep working. That's just my $.02.

    I think you'll find pleanty of people around here that will agree there are other watches that will take a lot of abuse. The good thing (and I believe the reason for the popularity with G's) is that you can abuse them for less $ than other 'tough watches', and they're known to keep on going .
