Casio G-Shock: Why This Durable Titan Has Stuck Around For Almost 40 Years

It’s a name that almost all Singaporeans would have heard of by the time we’re in primary school, and many of us might have even gotten one as our first watch. Find out more about the G-Shock’s history, or visit City Chain’s online platform or watch stores in Singapore to find the perfect G-Shock for you today.

Built to Last with “Triple 10” Resistance

The G-Shock has been around since 1983, making it relatively young compared to other brands. However, it is beloved for its range of models that suit all ages, levels of activity, and types of needs. G-Shock watches are high-quality and affordable which makes them a valuable investment that can last you a lifetime. 

The line was initially conceived to have “triple 10” resistance - meaning 10 year battery life, 10 bar water resistance, and 10 metre fall resistance. It has upheld these key features till today. In 2017, a G-Shock DW-5600E-1 even broke the Guinness World Record for “World’s Toughest Watch” by withstanding being run over by a 25 ton truck.

A Reliable Watch for Every Adventure

Today, G-Shock watches have improved by leaps and bounds to include more features for added convenience and efficiency. Each watch comes with a solar battery to ensure it never runs out, and its in-built Multi Band 6 technology can synchronise with 1 of 6 transmission stations worldwide to ensure the best accuracy in timekeeping. The Multi Band 6 technology also includes sensors for direction, barometric pressure, altitude, and temperature.

The G-Shock line is truly a worldwide icon for its dependable and precise models that suit all types of adventurous and outdoor lifestyles.
