A slapshot by a professional hockey player was once all it took to send this G-Shock into history and into a goalie’s mitt, literally. If it can maintain a slapshot, it can maintain your life. We like to refer to it as the quintessential G-Shock. The top left button is recessed for the purpose of avoiding the button from being by accident pushed which could cause the time to be changed. It is a design element and not a flaw or defect.
The simply designed Casio G-Shock Classic digital watch for men offers shock resistance that’s great for your most energetic sporting activities. The durable rectangular black watch case measures 45mm wide (1.77 inches), and it’s matched to a comfortable black resin sports strap. It includes a stopwatch function that can measure events down to 1/100 of a second for the first 60 minutes (and down to 1 second from 60 minutes to 24 hours), and it offers elapsed and split time modes, and 1st-2nd place times. It also has a countdown timer with a 24-hour range. Other timekeeping features include a multi-function alarm, hourly time signal (which can also be turned off), and 12/24-hour formats. This timepiece also features an Auto Calendar (pre-programmed until the year 2039), ±15-second accuracy per month, Afterglow backlighting, and water resistance to 200 meters (660 feet)–with a purpose to rise up to the rigors of recreational scuba diving.
With the launch of its first watch in November 1974, Casio entered the wristwatch market at a time when the watch industry had just discovered digital technology. As a company with state of the art electronic technology developed for pocket calculators, Casio entered this field confident that it could develop timepieces that would lead the market.
Today, Casio is focusing its efforts on solar-powered radio-controlled watches: the built-in solar battery eliminates the nuisance of replacing batteries, atomic timekeeping means the users never have to reset the time. Recently, Casio launched a series of Bluetooth watches that sync to the users cell phone to automatically update the time. Casio is all the time moving time forward.
