Not the same quality as G-Shock from 30 years ago.
March 1, 2019
Purchased approximately two years ago. Worked flawlessly until yesterday when the screen went completely black. I started using the G-Shock watches in the late 1980's. My first basic G-Shock lasted over 8 years with the original battery! I wore that watch literally every day. From time to time folks would ask if it is a good watch that lasts and I would show them by pounding the back of my wrist against a hard surface such as a 2x4 piece of lumber to show my confidence in the durability of that watch. The internal works were not damaged and the hard plastic body showed significant wear over the years. Even the band held up for the first 8 years! Not sure what they are doing different these days but have gone though 5 of these newer versions each of which have only lasted 3 years or so. I wish I still had that old version. I guess the saying applies..."They don't build em like they used to".
