Casio G-Shock Watches
The first G-Shock watch was produced in April 1983 by the Japanese watch brand Casio. The in house designer behind the concept was Kikuo Ibe and the very first model that they produced was known as the DW-5000C-1A.
The concept behind the Casio G-Shock range was to produce a digital watch that was very hard wearing and resistant to strong vibrations and hard knocks, they were initially marketed to sportsmen and those who favored outdoor pursuits such as mountaineering and winter sports, the vast majority of the first watches produced all featured stopwatches, lights, and water resistance to ensure they met the demands of modern day athletes. The durability of G-Shock is rated so highly that both British and American Special Forces use the watches when in the field.
By the 1990's G-Shock started to become highly popular within the fashion watch sector with many department stores and independent fashion stores stocking the product. Casio worked to this demand and began to release many models per year and collaborating with other companies and famous people to increase their ever growing collection and by 1998 they were releasing over 200 different models per year.
For over 30 years, Casio G-Shock watches have been the ultimate tough watch. Providing a durable waterproof watch for everything from the toughest situations to being the ultimate design forward fashion watch, G-Shocks are worn by everyone from Special Forces and emergency services operatives to Skateboarders and beach bums.
In 2002 G-Shock introduced the Baby-G collection of watches which were designed to appeal predominantly to the female market. The watches kept the design principles of durability and resistance of the mainline collection but with a much more feminine design.
