I Lost A Dear Friend Today


Shared on Wed, 10/12/2011 - 10:55

My Casio G-Shock finally died today after being my friend for close to 12 years.  I am at a loss.  Not sure what to say.  I am lost without a watch.  I have found myself staring at the white strip on my arm all morning.  I just found the information on the web on where to send it for possible repair.  It is going to take a couple of weeks.  Not sure what I am going to do without it. I can't go that long without a watch.  I may just have to buy a new one.  Problem is they don't make this model anymore.  Anybody else out there attached to their watch like I am?  Aybody have any recommendations for a new watch?

Don't carry my cell phone everywhere. My watch goes everywhere.

Same here, H2. I couldn't be without a watch. Is it worth getting repaired? Just buy a new one.

It just needs a battery probably. Problem is you have to send it to Casio, let them tell you that is the problem (by snail mail), pay them and then get your watch back. Looks like it is going to take more than a month. I have a dress watch that I don't like with a dead battery also. Researching watches, I like this one and it seems to be getting a lot of good reviews. http://www.amazon.com/Seiko-SKX779-Monster-Automatic-Polyurethane/dp/B00...

Adult swim has good deals on squidbillies and ventrue brothers watches, or a Movado would be nice "series 800" or a "bold chrono"
