G-shock - “Taking Toughness to the Limit”
Casio is with its groundbreaking technology one of the most popular series from Casio. The G-shock watch was the watch that brought a whole new concept of what robustness and toughness was, to the watch industry. Before the G-shock watch, the conventionel thought was, that it was impossible to design an unbreakable watch. This thought was something that the Casio brand wanted to challenge and so the "Project Team Tough" team was assembled i 1981, with a mission of creating the "unbreakable watch". It proved to be a very difficult mission and it took more than 200 different prototypes during a period of two years, before the right model was designed. The successfull model had the perfect dimensions and structure to make it completely shock-resistant, and hereby the team had fullfilled its mission. This original model was the beginning of a whole new era for Casio and since then the brand has continuously pushed the limits for what a shock-resistant watch should be.
The brands continuous strive to push the limits of what's technically possible, along with the passion of the G-shock team, has resulted in the design of the “Triple G Resist” model, which is a watch that has the stength to withstand three types of gravitational acceleration. Stronger than ever before, the G-shock team continues its never ending journey of designing a watch that is always stronger than the one before.
