Destroy the G-Shock

Destroy the G-Shock

Postby koimaster » September 26th 2016, 9:25am

The brief was simple.

Concoct torture tests for the Casio G-Shock GA-100 and destroy it, recording it for posterity.

So, my colleagues from around the world submitted innovative ways of destroying it and our new assistant editor, Joy Corthésy, and I set about performing them, while shooting photos and video to document the tests.

We started out slowly, with the tests we were pretty sure wouldn’t kill it

I always thought the G-Shock was all marketing hype, but this made a believer out of me. I'm impressed.

I believe it. I have no practical use for a G-Shock, but it's an amazing product at virtually all of its price points - and one of the most copied and emulated products, but nobody does it better.

But we all knew this although some confirmation every so often doesn't hurt.

I have their first radio controlled/solar watch ( over 12 years old) and it still gets a signal 9 out of 10 nights.
