The awesome fake Casio G-Shock GIEZ GS1300B-1A quartz chronograph watch is literally stuffed with advanced technology. Its main problem, perhaps, is the lack of its own identity, but that’s probably the whole idea behind the G-Shock line of extra-durable timekeepers: everybody must know at the first glance what he or she is dealing with.
All the numerous functions of the watch, including the calendar, UTC time display and chronograph are comfortably operated via push-buttons placed on both sides of the case. As far as readability goes, the dial looks a bit cluttered to me, but the hour and minute hands are prominent enough thanks to contrasting finish and a layer of some luminous compound on them, as are the numerals on the calendar wheel visible through a large date aperture.
Just as the recently presented Casio G-Shock MT-G (MTG1100-1A) model, the GIEZ features the Tough Movement system that automatically adjusts hand positioning at the 55-minute position, compensating for occasional hands displacement due to magnetic force or even, err, g-shocks that sometimes occur when you are not careful enough in bathroom.
The watch’s accuracy is further increased with the Multi-Band 6 Atomic Timekeeping technology letting the mens Casio G-Shock copy watch to self-adjust according to signals of atomic clocks broadcasted via 6 transmitters located in the United States, Japan, UK, Germany and Japan. All things considered, even despite inherent flaws of the base mechanism, this is one of the most accurate timekeepers you can buy if you live within broadcast range of the aforementioned radio stations. Otherwise, you are still good since the mechanism is accurate enough not to require corrections more often than a normal quartz watch in this price range.
As usual for the G-Shock line, the watch comes in an oversized body around 46 millimeters wide and some 14 millimeters high. Meant to be used as a beater or a sports activity companion, the watch sports a metal core inside its plastic case that protects the movement from shocks.
Of course, the G-Shock GIEZ also features a small solar panel that recharges its built-in battery.
Casio recommends selling the watch at a humble price of $500.
