    Vintage G-Shock Sighting

    I was kicking back tonight, watching Arnold Schwarzenegger in The Running Man. Toward the end of the movie, Arnie comes back to take down Richard Dawson. And what is he wearing?

    Hey!! That's one big digital watch!!! There weren't many of those in 1987. I wonder if it was a G-Shock?


    Hmmmmm..... Are those red buttons that I see?


    Wow!!! Arnold is wearing the original Mudman, the G-Shock II!!!!



    And years before Keanu thought to do it, another action hero uses the power of G-Shock to make the moves on the girl.

    Cool find, Buzz!

    I had no idea that he wore a G-Shock in that movie. And here I thought that all he wore in those movies in the 1980's were the Seiko H558-5000/ H601-5480 Dive watches??

    They must have thought it had a good futuristic look to it. Now it is 2008 and it is still in style!

    Good eye!
