    What's up with the search function on Gshock.com?

    I'm probably missing something here, but it seems like 9 times out of 10 when I search for a model number or the name of any GShock watch on Gshock.com I get a message like:NO RESULTS FOR G79002DR

    Doesn't matter whether it has the dashes in the number. Any tips on how to find stuff on their site and/or other suggestions on where I can get accurate info on case sizes? It certainly isn't Amazon.

    Search on Rakuten. Most listings provide the case measurements.

    There's also Casio (dot) com. Searching for "G79002DR" there took me directly to https://www.casio.com/products/Watches/G-Shock/G7900-1/ -- and since case sizes are generally standard between models regardless of suffix, that page's "size of case/total weight" should be the same as the "2DR" version. (Usually the only time you'll see variations between sizes and weights on Casio's site is if a model comes in two vastly different versions, like one with a strap and one with a bracelet.)

    Thanks for the alternative. Casio will be a helpful one for sure.

    I have to say these G shocks are hard to get accurate measurements on. My GD 350 9 (vibrating alarm) is listed incorrectly on both Casio and Rakuten as being 53mm. I got out the electronic calipers and oddly enough Amazon is the one who got this one right at 51mm. Unfortunately in my town the sort of gshocks I like just aren't around to try on. They'll pop up from time to time, but there are no stores that regularly carry 7900s for instance, just to get an actual feel for how the watch fits.

    That is TRUE. I actually have a neighbor one block down who does hair and makeup for Grimm.
