I took my G-shock to the local independent shop where I usually take it to get the battery changed. But this time they said they wouldn't guarantee G-Shocks, they've had too many problems with them. I was a bit surprised, so I took it to another independent around the corner, and they said that G-Shocks had been the bane of their lives for years, so they wouldn't do them at all any more, even without guarantee. Any other type would be fine, just not G-shock.
I've never come across this before, so I went into H.Samuel to see what they had to say. Apparently, they could do any type of watch in-store, but G-shocks are "so complicated" they have to be sent away.
What's happening all of a sudden? Aren't G-shocks supposed to be the industry standard for indestructible, 200m waterproof watches?
