Other member post this link..I not remember
Yes...I remember that thread. He was using the original FROGMAN before it was even "FROGMAN". At the time of his dive it must have been close to 10 years old.Not only was it water tight, but it surpassed its depth rating by over 120 m if I am not mistaken. Goes to show how tough G-Shocks really are.
Adan, that's the man that shares our haircul :-D
ADAN you haven't lost your touch for finding the G-shock links.
again, feliz cumpleaños
BTW: I do remember reading about this a while ago when the member posted this. However I think this link is new with better pictures.

Gosh...that's very impressive...
"Using a g-shock watch"...did that drag him down so deep? :oops:
Quite frankly, it sorta worries me: imagine I go swimming (I'm a poor swimmer) and my g-shock drags me down into the deep blue , I would definitely not come out ticking, but my watch would!
On the other hand, my kids get a nice inheritance!
Do you remember Wim van Est in the Col dÁubisque? In the Tour de France of 1951 he fell 70 meters down from a cliff. It is claimed he said later: "My heart stopped, but my Pontiac remained ticking".
Yes, Sjors, YOU reminded me. Super comment to think of his sponsor at just such moment (and one lucky sonofagun, too!)
Pontiac ("Tic Tac") was a huge bicycle racing sponsor back in the fifties...
Ach, these coureurs, they're not what they used to be!
(for the anglo's: "coureur" is a french word, meaning "runner" or "racer", and commonly applied specifically to bicycle racers in Belgiun dutch language, aka the flemish language).
The original (ard. 1905) "Tour the France" coureurs, they'd have to ride for two days on end, repairs had to be performed by themselves exclusively with spare parts carried by themselves, they'd drink wine en-route and no wonder some of them (cheaters) took the train to the arrival line! Some of the most famous such coureurs were Flemish or Belgian; they used to be called "Flandriens", from the word Flanders. Tough ole' bunch...from the days when the "ships were made of wood and men of iron"...
Each generation has it's own new kind of "tough guys", though.
Ya'll have a nice weekend, I'm going to be folk-dancing in Antwerp and, on sunday, somewhere in the North of France.
Happy birthday, Sjors, on saturday....:gold
