My son Rohan, all of 7 years old and standing one foot taller than a cricket bat, was elected to the school junior cricket team as a batsman. One the very first day, his watch that was gifted to him by his grandfather, got smashed by a direct hit of the cricket ball and this; despite the fact that they used a tennis ball instead of the regular seasoned cricket ball.
My wife was worried. What if the ball had hit his head? She asked. Don’t worry I told her; they wear helmets these days. But to tell you frankly, I was a bit worried too. After all, the bones of a 7-year old are quite delicate. I spoke with the physical trainer and he said Rohan should not have worn the watch; that it is against the rules to wear a watch while playing cricket. Well, I thought, whether his fault or not, Rohan will anyway expect a replacement.
The question was what kind of watch to buy for an active 7-year old boy and answer of course, was that the watch should be almost indestructible. As far as I know, there is only one brand and model that fits that description; Casio, G-shock watch.
The local watch shops I went to, had a few models but these were big chunky pieces that would be too big for the tiny wrist of a 7-year old kid. So, after visiting several shops and not being happy with their choice, I decided to check online.
Some 10 minutes into my search, I came across the Casio G-Shock Velocity Indicator Alarm GA-100-1A4 GA-100 Watch at this location: https://www.citywatches.in/product/casio-g-shock-velocity-indicator-alarm-ga-100-1a4-ga-100-watch/
To play safe, I called Rohan and asked him what he thought about the watch. He immediately liked it and wanted me to buy it for him. I pointed out that the Casio G-Shock Velocity Indicator Alarm GA-100-1A4 GA-100 watch was 55mm across and would be very big for him. To which he said, “but dad, it has an elastic strap and so it will fit well.” Kids are amazing uh? They often see things that we adults miss.
