Am still a noob but I have a good collection of limited edition GShocks. I was really into them until the recent GShocks were Made or cased in China. After a local visit to the G Factory outlets here in Singapore and a chat with the sales executives, I was reassured of the G Shock quality even though all the newer G's will be made in china. (except for JDM) I am truly disappointed and have drastically slowed down in buying G Shocks. I know its only a watch and maybe there are those that feel that Made in Thailand or Malaysia is inferior but I would beg to differ. Maybe its skepticism and I guess only time will tell but I would love to hear what other fans think? Please share your thoughts!
