CASIO’s shock-resistant G-SHOCK watch is synonymous with ruggedness, born out of developer Mr. Ibe’s dream of “creating a watch that never breaks”. Over 200 handmade samples were created and tested to destruction until in 1983 the first now iconic G-SHOCK hit the streets of Japan and began to establish itself as “the most rugged watch of all time”. Each watch encompasses the 7 elements; electric shock resistance, gravity resistance, low temperature resistance, vibration resistance, water resistance, shock resistance and toughness. The watch is packed with Casio innovations and technologies to prevent it from taking a direct shock; this includes internal components protected by urethane and timing modules suspended inside the watch frame. Since its launch, G-SHOCK has continued to evolve, continuing to uphold Mr. Ibe’s mantra of “never give up”. www.gshock.com/home.
