Cool & Fun’ Made In Japan - G Shock factory

Post by koimaster » January 6th 2017, 9:52am

It was 1983 in Japan when Casio first released the now famous G-Shock watch collection. Its inventor, Mr. Kikuo Ibe developed the durability-themed watch quietly with an intent to end the frustration with what he and others felt was an industry of fragile timepieces. When it was first released, the modern-looking plastic watches were intended to appeal to active professionals such as police officers, construction workers, and emergency rescue personnel who needed timepieces that they didn’t need to worry about. Over the last 30 or so years, the Casio G-Shock has indeed been extremely popular with these groups of consumers, but as a product its popularity went far beyond its existence as a useful tool worn on the wrist.

Cripes. The only brand I have yet to try is a Casio G Shock.

Starting to get interested.

Well written look at not only the history of the watch and the brand; but, one of the better inside looks into the daily workings of a major player. Lots of things I did not know.

Gives me far greater respect for the brand. Great photos, too.

One of the better watch related reads I have encountered.
