Designed for the adventurers and the active, G Shock watches are one of the best brands for those looking for something that will stand the test of time. The first G Shock watch was designed by engineer Kikuo Ibe in 1983 which was spurred on when the pocket watch his father had handed down to him had broken. He decided that it was time for there to be a watch that was almost unbreakable and so came the G Shock watch collections that we see today.
Every G-Shock watch is subjected to a series of tests to ensure that Kikuo Ibe’s philosophy remains and every G Shock model is designed to be water resistant to 100 metres, have a ten year battery life and survive a 10 metre drop. You can find all the most popular G Shock collections here including the G Shock Gravitymaster and the G Shock Premium Aviation ranges.
G-Shock watches founder, Kikuo Ibe is an engineer who created the first shock-resistant watch of the company in 1983. For the first time, a watch could be exposed to impact and vibrations without suffering harm.
The timepieces became equipped with various functionalities, which made them excellent for athletes, adventurers and military personnel. G-Shock watches feature atomic timekeeping, solar power generation, resistance to dust and cold.
