They're Heeeere...The Timex Iron Man and G Shock DW5600! I Will Share The Results!

The two watches I ordered for my extreme comparison arrived yesterday, and I am going to be starting my test of them soon. I will be sure to document my results so I can share them with you all. 馃槀

I'm definitely interested to see the results of your tests, but what are your testing parameters? What sort of results are you expecting?

I'm definitely interested to see the results of your tests, but what are your testing parameters? What sort of results are you expecting?

Here is what I came up with in another discussion and what I am going to do.

I will design a series of tests to compare the ruggedness and durability of these two watches. The first and most obvious test is the impact test. But I do not want to do a simple drop onto a hard surface. No, this test is dropping a cinder block onto each the watches from a height of 3 meters. The second test will be a low temperature test, so I will throw both of the watches in the freezer for 24 hours. This test is not very extreme, but it is the best I could come up with during the summer. The third test will be to see how well the watches hold up to dirt and grime. I will strap the watches to the soles of my wife鈥檚 gardening boots and let her wear them for an hour. I will test the water resistance by running them through the washing machine, and finally test the heat resistance and dry them at the same time using the clothes dryer. I will document the results and post them in a review when I am done.馃槈

I look forward to seeing the results, and those are some great tests!

Bury them both under the rose Bush for a week. Really looking forward to seeing the results of your tests!

Wow my two icon 80s watches. I once had them both back in the day and they were the hard working man common watches can't wait to see your result review.
