Just a heads up here. I ordered a GA100MC from Zappos a few days ago, with free overnight shipping. I was surprised when it didn't show up and I didn't get a tracking number. I contacted customer service and was told that the watch was considered hazardous material and could not be shipped by air, due to the lithium battery (CR1220). I realize that there are regulations regarding shipping lithium batteries, but this is ridiculous. When I pointed out that Amazon was shipping the same watch in a different color overnight, it fell on deaf ears. They just kept repeating it was company policy.

I hope I don't have to leave my G-Shocks at home when I travel. Although if they become a banned item on airplanes, being a TSA agent could be a good gig for a G-Shock collector!

I'm surprised G shocks with atomic clock syncing aren't already banned on airplanes. I would have thought someone would have claimed that radio syncing could interfere with the aircraft's equipment.

They receive a signal and don't send one.

About the Lithium batts: this is old news, we already discussed this a couple years back. Yes, it is totally riduculous even more since Lithium's are known for their extreme stability and reliability under severe weather conditions and therfore extreme temperature changes. Actually I thought that kind of nonsense would be history, sadly it seems not....


cheers
