If you dont consider 60-some odd years ago 'long ago', what do you consider 'long ago'?
Yeah, I'm only 42, so I guess "not that long ago" needs some context. I kind of forgot I'm in a car forum, not a watch forum, so knowledge of watch history shouldn't be assumed. My bad.

My point is simply that lots of formally utilitarian things, from watches to "work boots" to Land Rovers, have now become luxury status symbols, so I guess it makes sense that G-Shock is working towards that, too.

I mean, there is even a solid gold, $70K G-Shock!
