Seriously, this steampunk thing is getting out of hand. Like with this Casio G-Shock G8100A-5 wristwatch. They took a Casio watch, slapped on some bronze paint, and now everyone and their steam-powered mechanical dog is calling it steampunk. Enough! If you're going to charge $100 for a bronze-colored watch and have people start calling it steampunk, it had damn well better come powered by a miniature lever-pulling version of K.W. Jeter.

Problem with this watch is it's craptastic paint job. Now, if it WAS made of brass and bronze...that would be an entirely different story.
