Casio G-Shock Torture Test: Rolled Over by a BMW

What would happen if you accidentally dropped your Casio G-Shock onto the ground one day and a car drove over it?

While that scenario seems highly unlikely, there is always that one possibility.

As such, we tested the Casio G-Shock GA-700 by driving a BMW over it, as seen in the above YouTube video.

As it was being rolled over by the wheel of the BMW, a crunching sound can be heard and thereafter, the red resin strap can be seen breaking off from the Casio G-Shock GA-700. These aren’t good scenes for the Casio G-Shock GA-700 at all.

Moreover, if you are observant enough, the spring bar which helps secure the strap to the watch can be seen falling out. The audio of the spring bar dropping onto the ground can be heard in the video which was filmed in slow-motion.

At first glance, the mineral glass seems to have survived the first rollover attempt. But will it survive the second rollover?

During the second rollover attempt, another crunching sound is heard.

 

 

 

 

As the Casio G-Shock lies on the ground with a red fragment beside it, including the spring bar and dislodged strap, the analog minute hand moves, indicating that the movement survived the ordeal.

Perhaps two rollover attempts weren’t sufficient and that is we why decided on more, as seen in the second video, found on YouTube below.

After our third and fourth rollover attempts, we decided for good measure, to throw the Casio G-Shock GA-700 violently onto the hard ground.

During the post-torture examination, the Casio G-Shock was found to be in working condition albeit with a dislodged strap and part of its resin case structure damaged.

As the spring bar was still in working condition, the strap could still be fitted back onto the watch and we did just that. However, the buckle was bent and out of shape.

What is more important to note is that the Casio G-Shock GA-700 has proven its resilience once more.
