  1. Affordable watches
    Here's my Corona Virus WUS contribution. One of the first thing that I've learned and was heavily biased was that Timex does not do Lume well. Given that the 95% of their watches have Indiglo; it never occurred to me to really find out and just took it as reality. Fast forward a couple...
  2. Casio G-Shock
    Here’s the latest and last episode of G-Shock vs. regular Casio torture tests. I wasn’t planning on making it last, but my brother in lawliked the G-Shock so much I decided to give it to him if it survived all the tortures. Also a colleague of mine from work needed a watch for his running...
  3. Casio G-Shock
    Ok, so finally we have the first torture test. unlike other torture tests out there the idea was to compare a regular Casio to a G-Shock and see if G-Shocks are really tougher or not. The first test is a water resistance and temperature change test. Both watches were frozen for 24 hours than...

    SOLD, THANKS WUS AND BUYER! I had 3 somewhat comparable watches arrive in the same day, so I have had to make some choices. This is a nearly new Seiko Prospex GMT SUN055 Kinetic Diver watch that I just got from another forum member and haven’t even tried on. I paid $125, so that will be my...

    I don't know if this has been posted before, I tried the search and couldn't find it so here goes: I was reading an article on Casio G shock production and the reporter mentioned Alpha gel test that I couldn't believe so I decided to look it up and really, on you tube there is a video, with the...

    I just saw the g-shock toughness tests and they have the hammer test, piston test, drop test, vibration test, shock test, ice test, and water test. I'm inviting the g-shock community (you guys) to think up some other tests of toughness and possibly even test their own watches.

  10. High Accuracy Quartz watches
    Hi all. I tested my watch Omega Megaquartz 32 KHz and my Omega Marine Chronometer 2.4 MHz (cal. 1510) with a Horotec Flashtest. Omega Marine is the most accurate autonomous wristwatch in the world. The title of “world’s most accurate wristwatch” was bestowed on the watch after 63 days of...
  11. Watchmaking
    I recently bought some old elgin pocket watch movements off eBay. They are of varying sizes and all are early 1900's pocket watches. I've taken one apart and cleaned the parts in an ultrasonic cleaner. However, while I have it apart, I wanted to test the mainspring. It's currently in its barrel...
  12. Casio G-Shock
    Even before I read up and got to learn about G-Shock watches I knew they were tough. I started watching videos and got to thinking. Recently I scored a mint DW-6900 black and lime green puppy off Kijiji and decided finally to give my G-Shock the tests I've seen elsewhere and maybe a few you...

    I will add pics asap - frankly I'm throwing caution to the wind- I had a thread of slimming down to eight watches and these were keepers - which in the end I realize I can live without any of these... SO.. here they are - this isn't a fire sale - lowball offers will be ignored All are...

    Hi guys, Did anyone else catch the second part of an incredible torture test done on a variety of gadgets on the Gadget Show in the UK? They were testing a whole range of tech devices that claim to be tough. In the test in the first program two weeks ago the items were subjected to: -Being...

    Over the last twenty days I made a little test with four automatic watches. I was wearing them during the day as I normally would. Physical activity rather reduced as I'm an office person not a barkeeper. At night I'd take them off and store them crown up or crown down. These two positions in...

  20. Casio G-Shock
    So its January, and I have some time on my hands. I'm thinking of subjecting G-Shocks to all sorts of tests. I could take videos of the tests and put them on youtube. Sure you guys always talk about a specific watch being the toughest, but wouldn't you want to see it PROVEN. I'm not going to...
