    Confused What is resin's melting point?

    I was just wondering when I'm cooking something on the stove, oven, or barbecue.

    I don't think you'll have to worry about it. I wear my Giez while cooking all the time.

    As long as you take your hand away from the heat before your skin starts to blister, the watch should be fine

    My Mudman survived one of my BBQ's, which requires it to almost be fireproof.

    I wonder why Casio do not use silicon? It withstands very high temperatures and is shock absorbent. Many mp3 player and games console skins are made of it and those funny flipper oven gloves. It does cut easy mind you

    The resin they use seems as heat resistant as it needs to be. Your hands couldn't bare to be near heat long enough for it to melt the resin. Well, mine certainly couldn't.

    Does it cost the same with resin? Is it more durable than resin? If it costs the same with resin and it has the same shock absorption factor it could be a nice idea.

    If its more durable than resin, it could be a bad idea because it could expand the life of a bezel-strap and maybe they want to keep it at its current life-circle to sell more spare parts...

    I agree.

    I have been wearing G-Shocks and Seiko divers on rubber for 15 years in professional kitchens and have yet to melt one. I think you are safe.
