If you're referencing the Casio G-Shock, the answer is yes. They are available, inexpensive and durable.

Rich, I don't think we are talking about the same thing. This was not a watch, but it is worn on the wrist of the shooting hand to lessen the effect of recoil. A cop friend of mine had one years ago, back in the seventies. The last time I tried to contact the manufacturer, I was unsuccessful. The only thing I can remember about it was the name. (Shock Watch)

I haven't seen ads for it since the mid-80s. The device was basicly a vial of mercury that you strapped to your wrist like watch.

Yep ! That be the one. I knew it contained
some kind of fluid, but I did not know it was mercury. They are probably out of business now. Oh well, thanks for the replies.
