The One-Hundred-Millionth G-Shock Delivered

The One-Hundred-Millionth G-Shock Delivered

Postby Racer-X » September 17th 2017, 3:40pm

by Robert-Jan Broer "Last month, the 100.000.000th Casio G-Shock has been delivered. An amazing number and accomplishment! Here at Fratello we are big fans of the G-Shock and recently covered the ‘essential’ model GW-5000.

The development of the G-Shock already started in 1981, a watch that needed to withstand drops and heavy knocks. Around 200 prototypes later, the first G-Shock was launched in 1983. This was reference DW-5000C. The ‘tough’ watch that led to an entire new entity within the Casio company."

Wonder if this makes the G the best selling watch ever?

During the mid-twentieth century when cell phones weren't an option and almost everyone needed a watch those Timex folks hit the billions.

When two opposite points of view are expressed with equal intensity, the truth does not necessarily lie exactly halfway between them. It is possible for one side to be simply wrong.

A hundred million, and not one of 'em has all the features you want.

Hadn't thought about that.

Hell, HMT may have made more just for India.
