    The whole point behind the Tool Time articles is to talk about tools that a g-shockaholic should have at hand. Basically what you would need for DIY jobs that can easily be done at home, with just a few and inexpensive tools. On my last article I wrote ...

    Maybe the principle quality of a G-Shock is it's ruggedness, and we collectors and enthusiasts (collectively known as g-shockaholics) love to brag that it can take anything you throw at it and it will keep on telling you the time with at least +/- 15 seconds/month of precision. But even though it can withstand a direct nuclear blast, eventually the battery will have to be changed, solar or not. Or maybe you will want to change the strap. Or perhaps you want to make your beloved G look a little different, with a new resin set.

Why not do it yourself?

    Yes Virginia, you can do it on your own. It's not rocket science and you don't need some overly-specialized tools. If you have patience, pay attention to what you're doing and don't cut corners, anything simple like changing a battery or swapping a strap is easy peasy. But you will need a few tools. On this article I'm going to cover the bare-bones basics that you would need for a simple job like that, that will take you five to ten minutes. In future articles I'll go over some more specialized tools that you will need to do the job better and for some other more complex stuff. I'm no watchmaker, not even an engineer or with any kind of tech degree. I just like tools, G-Shocks and to tinker with my stuff. And Lego. So if I can do it, so can you. ...
