    Shameless G-shock Knock-offs

    I found this little "Gem" at the local Wal-Mart; I can't remember if it cost me $1 or $2. This, ladies and gentlemen of fine watch collecting taste, is a G-star:




    Please note the workmanship that went into this piece. This is the much-coveted Super-Sport "Speedmaster" model, with three non-functional circles that look pretty. Believe it or not, it actually keeps pretty good time.

    Any more out there?

    What does the "RUB" button do?

    I guess "RUB" means "rubber" as the surrounding dial indicates. What exactly happens when you press the button marked rubber is something I'd like to know. :-D My guess is that they are just dummy non-functioning buttons. The most that module could probably do on that watch is to tell the time and date.

    It doesn't say "Casio" or "G-Shock" on it. Doesn't it have to try to pass as a real G to be a fake? This is just some company copying the G style but not really trying to pass as a real Casio. I see these in thrift stores all the time. I hate them too. They always get me excited until I see what they are.

    I don't even see the words "Water Reistsant" on it.

    other possible names for it:
    s**tman
    crapman
    trashman
    garbageman
    junkman
