Casio Celebrates 40 Years Of Gundam With G-Shock Collection

Don’t ask me why is this coming out of China instead of Japan where both CASIO G-Shock and cult mecha anime Gundam, the granddaddy of Japanese mecha, originated. Anyways, here it is, a collection of Gundam-themed G-Shock timepieces dished out by CASIO to celebrate Gundam’s 40th anniversary this year. The collection consists of four G-Shock wrist watches, each with color(s) and designs inspired by highly recognizable mecha/mecha guises, including RX-78-2 Gundam, MS-06S Char’s Zaku II, RX-0 Unicorn Gundam, and RX-0 Unicorn Gundam 02 Banshee.

Casio G-Shock’s New GRAVITYMASTER Is All Carbon Monocoque

CASIO G-Shock is not closely associated with motorsports and aviation, but here it is, the CASIO G-Shock GRAVITYMASTER GWRB1000-1A1 Watch, a timepiece with materials inspired by motorsports and designed with aviation professionals in mind. CASIO did not make the association (with aviation) out of thin air. This beautiful timepiece sports an all-new carbon monocoque structure – a structural system closely associated with aircraft and automobile construction (which is essentially an exoskeleton of sort), and rust resistant titanium parts which includes a glove-friendly, all-new button structure comprising of four large titanium buttons.

CASIO G-Shock ‘Pure Gold’ Anniversary Watch Has A Shocking $70K Price Tag

CASIO G-Shock is no stranger in giving gold treatment to its G-Shock timepieces, but to date, those gold treatments were, well, just another color range. Nothing even remotely shocking, really, if you ask me. That was until the exquisite Gold Hammertone variety came along, asking for $6K in return. That created quite a stir in the G-Shock community, but now there’s one G-Shock timepiece that overshadows even the Hammertone.

CASIO G-Shock Celebrates 25 Years Of Baby-G With A Special Baby-G Model

This year, CASIO G-Shock celebrates 25 years of Baby-G. Yes, already. Time sure the hell flies. When Baby-G was first launched in 1994, it aimed to create a more feminine version of the G-Shock with all the toughness of G-Shock, but in a smaller, slimmer form. It was a hit. Even as a hot-blooded young man, I was drawn to it. I grabbed my first (and last) pair sometime in 1996 as a gift to myself for getting my driving license (hey, we all need an excuse or two to buy, right?). Baby-G was also the watch that made me realize that small watches ain’t for me, hence the last for me. Continue reading CASIO G-Shock Celebrates 25 Years Of Baby-G With A Special Baby-G Model

CASIO Debuts G-Shock With 1983 Case in Full Metal Paired With Resin Band

Metal is a symbol of toughness. Surprisingly though, Casio tough watch line, G-Shock, did not employ metal in its classic square face G-Shock wrist watches until of late. The Casio GMWB5000-1 All-Metal G-Shock is the latest addition Metal G-Shock to be included in the watchmaker’s catalog and it is the first in the collection to combine a metal bezel and resin band. The result is, as you can see, looking very promising. G-Shock is no stranger to colorful watches. Gold accents aren’t new either, but metal in silver or gold is fairly new to the Japanese watchmaker. Continue reading CASIO Debuts G-Shock With 1983 Case in Full Metal Paired With Resin Band

G-Shock x Transformers Comes With A Transformable Optimus Watch Holder

Transformers are, according to TFWiki.net, a species of sentient, living robotic beings. In other words, they are are living things, just like you and me. This brings us to this question: as sentient beings, do they do ever need to read time, or does the onboard computer already have that taken care of? I guess we will never know and a collaboration with G-Shock and toy maker of Transformers, Takara Tomy, only serves to deepen this mystery. Continue reading G-Shock x Transformers Comes With A Transformable Optimus Watch Holder

We Just Can’t Take Our Eyes Off The Bright Red Accented G-Shock GA700

It has been a while since we look at Casio G-Shock watches. There are just way too many watches being turn out, but this one here had my full attention because, bright red accents. This new debut from Casio is the G-Shock GA700BR-1A men’s watch. As you can see, the bright tangy red accents beckon for everyone’s attention. The bright red accents can be found on the face and bezel, and extends to the back of the rubber strap (referred to as “two-tone strap”). The latter is something you hardly notice if you wear it, but it is a nice touch nonetheless. Continue reading We Just Can’t Take Our Eyes Off The Bright Red Accented G-Shock GA700

G-Shock Lends Some Bold Colors To Men’s Street Style Watches

G-Shock watches’ norm is the signature black colorway which is cool because they are, after all, rugged timepieces, but if you are going score in the street style department, colors are essential. TBH, purists will not settle for anything else other than the standard black, or maybe occasional camo colorway. However, for everyone else who are open to bold colors, G-Shock has recently announced new, vibrant colorways for two popular men’s street style models for this holiday season. The models are GA800 and the model that recently made history, DW5600. Continue reading G-Shock Lends Some Bold Colors To Men’s Street Style Watches

G-Shock Bagged Its First Guinness Title After A 25-Ton Truck Rolled Over It

We all know how tough CASIO G-Shock watches are, but to the folks over at CASIO, it ain’t good enough to be known as tough if it does not have a formal recognition, such as one from the world’s foremost authority on cataloguing and verification of world records, Guinness World Records. For decades, G-Shock watches are synonymous with toughness and therefore, they are the go-to super rugged timepiece, but it is only in recent months that it has put one of its watch to test, by taking on the challenge for the title of Heaviest vehicle to drive over a watch.
