i say this because the cost of this small antenna that's placed in your watch prolly costs g-shock around 25 cents to buy in bulk...this kind of tech is very cheap....yet as an up sell they charge hundreds of dollars extra for it in some models..and more than half in lower priced models.
the whole atomic thing is unnecessary.... yeah, sure it's a cool feature and all but it's something that should be standard on all their watches not watches that they choose to rape you on in pricing......and if your digital watch cannot keep accurate time +/- a few seconds you have to get rid of it anyway......lol @ needing your watch to reset to the atomic clock everyday when it's within seconds all the time.
i mean..if this feature was so valuable and such a great useful upgrade to your frogman or other g-shock that they charge double for, than why does casio have it in their <$25 wave ceptor watch on amazon.
not only is a cheap add on but casio has managed to snowball most of the collectors that it's actually worth something more than what it is. i wouldn't even call casio great marketiers...quite a bit of the hobby is made up of gullible consumers. which in turn lead to big profits..
