Hands-On: The Casio G-Shock Master Of G Gravitymaster

by Jack Forster "The G-Shock has led an interesting life. G-Shock started out in 1983 as engineer Kikuo Ibe's obsessive reaction to the breakage of a cherished mechanical watch, with his initial goal being the creation of a quartz LCD watch with such shock-resistant armor that it could tolerate a 10 meter drop (he famously tested prototypes by surreptitiously throwing them out an upper floor men's bathroom window into the parking lot behind his lab)."

When I read the headline too quickly, I thought it said "Gravymaster," which my mom used to put in everything.

Not sure what exactly Casio is thinking but,who ever does the marketing/price setting etc for their product , should (in my humble opinion) stay away from the fucking bottle of Sake while at work...They (again in my humble opinion) starting to come across like divorce from reality, having an overly inflated opinion about their product value and in general making no sense.
