    Hmm, I don't pronounce it that way. Since it's a reasonable supposition that it's named after the Swiss German-speaking town, I have assumed it's pronounced Gee-ets, with a hard 'G'.

    Or, to take out the slight pause - Gyets.
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    Here's what Babelfish came up with after translating the Japanese definition:

    GIEZ of which it is etymological is 'G-ESSENCE' means essence and essence. The G-Shock for a suitable adult for calling by sticking to the quality as the clock without the compromise until arriving at the material in the design, the function, and one point part a point the excellent article is achieved. It tastes by embezzlement, it becomes deep, and feeling of quality is exactly suitable for the name of tough of the refinement.
