On 29 April 2017, just a day after its first torture in extreme heat, we subjected the Casio G-Shock GA-700 to its second high temperature test. This time, the plan was to cook it in boiling water at 100 degrees Celsius / 212 degrees Fahrenheit.

At 5.00pm, we dropped the Casio G-Shock GA-700 into boiling water. What followed into the “hot bath” was a raw egg.

After three minutes, the digital display of the Casio G-Shock GA-700 began to fade. At the fourth minute, there was no readout on the digital display.

However, when the G-Shock GA-700 was taken out from the boiling water, its analog hand indicated the time of 5.05 which meant that the quartz movement housed inside was still working.

The GA-700 was taken out of its hot “Casio G-Shock stock with egg soup” eight minutes after it was dropped in, going by the analog time display of 5.08.

It was immediately placed into a ceramic bowl and while there was no digital display readout, the analog hand continued to work.

Around four minutes after it was taken out of the boiling hot bath, the digital display began to appear. The cooler temperature somehow allowed it to come back to “life”.

Condensation was detected from within the case.

At 5.14pm or six minutes after it was “rescued” from its hot ordeal, the Casio G-Shock GA-700 had recovered.

Over the next few minutes, the condensation disappeared and by around 5.25pm, the Casio G-Shock GA-700 had made a complete recovery.

Upon inspection, there was no indication whatsoever that the red resin had deteriorated or melted. Only cooked egg white was seen on the case.

Through the torture tests undertaken over consecutive days which saw the Casio G-Shock being frozen and placed in boiling water before being cooked for eight minutes in this test, we can conclude that the GA-700 is a fine example of an extreme watch that can not only withstand hard knocks but thermal shocks.

The Casio GA-700 is indeed a fine example of an everyday tool watch.
