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)."Article at HODINKEE

When I read the headline too quickly, I thought it said "Gravymaster," which my mom used to put in everything.
WatchGeeks will go down in watch forum history as the worst watch related site that existed. Trolls, threats, bannings, and owners and sponsors talking out of their collective asses to fleece people out of hard earned money. - Koimaster

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.
