Hmm, I don't pronounce it that way. Since it's a reasonable supposition that it's named after the Swiss German-speaking town, I have assumed it's pronounced Gee-ets, with a hard 'G'.

Or, to take out the slight pause - Gyets.

Here's what Babelfish came up with after translating the Japanese definition:

GIEZ of which it is etymological is 'G-ESSENCE' means essence and essence. The G-Shock for a suitable adult for calling by sticking to the quality as the clock without the compromise until arriving at the material in the design, the function, and one point part a point the excellent article is achieved. It tastes by embezzlement, it becomes deep, and feeling of quality is exactly suitable for the name of tough of the refinement.

Ah, the definitive explanation. That clears it up. :-d

Hell I've been pronouncing it rhyming with key to start it off, Gey-ez, or Gi-ez, whichever is the proper pronunciation key to say it. Ah who knows!

Ah, well I do get the gist of that actually... and that means my 'small Swiss town theory' is too clever by half! :-d

Mine doesn't answer, whatever I call it, so I stopped calling it anything; it's now simply 'cool-watch'.
