A G-Shock watch is built to last in whatever conditions you throw at it. Whether your sport is hiking, swimming, jogging, an extreme sport, or you just need a watch that will take some abuse; a G-Shock watch is an excellent choice. Casio was the first watch company to release a shock-resistant watch. Over the past couple decades they have improved and perfected the G-Shock technology. Take a look through the huge selection of G-Shock watches we have to offer you right here at iConsume.
Practically all G-Shocks have some kind of stopwatch feature, countdown timer, light and water resistance. According to Casio the toughness is in the design and each G-Shock watch is designed with durability in mind. The watch is built around a high quality hybrid stainless steel shell, several layers of protection then protect the movement which is encased inside that shell. Each G-Shock watch is also water resistant. When these Casio watches take a beating, the module inside the watch doesn't.
The first G-Shock was released in April 1983. For the next few years Casio released a handful of new models each year. The Baby-G models were released in 1991. The popularity of G-Shocks increased rapidly throughout the 1990s. By 1998, 19 million G-Shocks had been sold worldwide, and there seemed to be a peak in demand as over 220 new models were released in that year alone.
G-Shock is popular with mountaineers, firemen, paramedics, police officers, astronauts and even film directors. Legendary director, Tony Scott who directed such films as Top Gun, Unstoppable and Enemy of the State was often pictured wearing a G-Shock watch. Soldiers, especially Special Forces have also been known to wear G-Shock due to them being “battle tested”.
