You continually seem to be guiding the narrative towards "limited".trying with the limited input that we've gotten? yes. me personally? no. just following what has been posted on this done to death non issue subject.
yes, unconfirmed as in those that have just said "it broke" without any follow up or pictures.
can def. agree its not that big of a deal, yet ppl keep making it a huge deal and saying its "common".
i never questioned the legitimacy of your claims, your knowledge or how many used watches youve bought with questionable histories, only the hyperbole and exaggeration of saying such few occurrences was common.
However if you just search, you can see over a quite a decent span of time a good amount of topics started regarding broken lugs, various discussions in different threads with responses about someone confirming it's happened.
This thread was specifically started regarding the durability of the rangeman. My response was based on my own first hand experience, along with first person accounts of people I know. I responded based on my own experience and knowledge of this specific failure, and your initial response to my post had all the connotation of it not being a "real" issue, and that it shouldn't have been brought up.
I know there are TONS of positive experiences with the Rangeman. I don't take as much stock in the ones from people who have 5-6 different rangeman in their collection. Those pieces aren't being worn enough to attest to everyday reliability. You have a rotation where each one sees maybe 1-2 days a week if it's lucky on the wrist isn't going to test the everyday durability of it.
I wore my first one 5-6 days a week, doing semi physical work in law enforcement. It saw some moderate usage. The point is that's the watch you expect to handle that type of usage. My other g-shocks that were worn in that environment handled it just fine.
So again, I feel perfectly comfortable issuing a word of caution regarding the strength of the lugs on these without feeling unjust. I love this model. It's still my most commonly worn g-shock. It's on my wrist as I type this.
