About 30 years ago, a CASIO engineer triumphed over the laws of physics. He produced a watch that was resistant to impact and centrifugal forces as well as high water pressure. G-SHOCK has been synonymous with breaking laws and doing it your own way since then. G-SHOCK was born at a time when wristwatches were still considered fragile instruments.
It all started with the idea of a young CASIO engineer to create "a watch that doesn't break even though it's lost."
CASIO made a splash in 1974 with the introduction of the G-SHOCK watch, which is considered almost indestructible, and has had a strong presence in the watch business since the 1980s. In 1983, the first G-SHOCK, the DW5000, was produced.
With their angles and edges, the G-SHOCK models became the preferred look of urban adolescents all over the world, resulting in an unprecedented success story.
G-SHOCK watches soon gained a reputation for their longevity, ingenuity, and multi-functionality. Finally, you didn't have to take off your watch while skateboarding or BMX-crossing.
Drops and knocks have little impact on the G-SHOCK. For nearly 35 years, G-SHOCK watches have proven to be durable all-rounders that can be worn in any situation. They're great for casual use, sports, and recreational events where you're in a lot of pain. G-SHOCK has earned the freedom to be worn by men who don't want to be restricted.

Ibe, on the other hand, was dissatisfied with the performance.
Furthermore, the hard metals were unable to protect the digital interior from impacts and other external influences. Months of relentless commitment ensued, pushing the team to their physical and emotional breaking points, but the goal remained elusive...
"The impact of the ball falling down has absolutely no affect on the interior of a revolving rubber ball," Ibe discovered as he stood in the park watching children play.
As a result, his team designed a watch with a hollow shell that allows the module to float inside. The research cycle was almost two years long and very difficult. The first shock-resistant G-SHOCK was published in 1983, after more than 200 iterations and continuous optimisation of the housing and various components. The groundbreaking ideas of a "hollow" case construction, all-sided protection, and the use of shock-absorbing material on key components were used to create the G-SHOCK Toughness and the shock-resistant structure that would completely reinvent conventional watch design and underpin any G-SHOCK to this day.
G-SHOCK watches are recognised for their toughness as well as their technical sophistication: from solar cell technology to Bluetooth® to GPS and radio technology, G-SHOCK has always been associated with cutting-edge technology.
Ten-year battery life, ten-bar water resistance, and ten-meter shock resistance. The Triple 10 concept's three original requirements are as follows. The skill of the designers to create an indestructible watch resulted in the watch's sturdy form and robust construction. Since the introduction of the first G-SHOCK in 1983, the watches have been continuously made, but the distinctive simple design has remained. As a result, not only do the sleek MT-G models have a high degree of exclusivity, but they also have the G-legendary SHOCK's endurance. The quartz mechanism of the stainless steel G-SHOCK is protected by the CASIO cushioning device, which has been continuously perfected over the last 35 years and is responsible for the G-SHOCK brand's popularity as a virtually indestructible watch.
Due to revolutionary GPS hybrid technology, which combines energy-efficient high-performance GPS technology with radio technology, two flexible devices are used to calibrate the time (multiband 6). These two processes operate in tandem to provide precise time virtually everywhere on the globe: If a radio pulse is apparent in Europe, North America, or Asia, the G-SHOCK receives it right away.
A small antenna on both G-SHOCK remote-controlled watches absorbs radio signals and allows for precise time setting. The advantages of radio-controlled watches are obvious: After being tuned to the correct time zone, G-SHOCK watches continue to reflect the same local time. They transmit radio signals from nearly every country in Europe, and certain variants still receive signals from the United States.
A small antenna is built into both G-SHOCK remote-controlled watches, which absorbs radio signals and allows for precise time setting. Radio-controlled watches have a number of advantages that are self-evident: After being adjusted to the proper time zone, G-SHOCK watches continue to reflect the same local time. They receive radio signals from almost every country in Europe, and certain variants still receive radio signals from the United States.
The battery is charged automatically and does not need to be turned on manually. The watch enters energy-saving mode when it is left in a dark space for an extended period of time. You'll be in the shadows for up to 24 months if you do this.
