Casio mark 30th anniversary of G-Shock brand with fire red watch line

By Gerald Lynch on August 14th, 2012

Casio are preparing for quite the anniversary. April 13th 2012 will mark the 30th birthday of the brand’s popular chunky G-Shock wristwatch line.

To mark the occasion, Casio are to release three fire-red limited edition watches. The sturdy Mudman G-9330A, Frogman GF-8230A and DW-6930A have all been given a devilish makeover, a bold look for a bold brand that’s consistently pushed watch design to its limits.

Etched with the special 30th Anniversary logo designed by Eric Haze and finished with gold tint, they’ll land in a special commemorative tin sometime around September.

More than anything, it’s hard to believe the G-Shock brand is now nearly 30 years old, and how the classic look is stills stylish. Just take a look at the first ever G-Shock model pictured below, the DW-5000C-1A. Despite launching in April 1983, the G-Shock line still retains many of the details established so many years ago:

The Terry Richardson Casio Collaboration

By Laura on September 28th, 2011

Terry Richardson, yeah the pervy guy behind American Apparel, recently released a double book, called “Mom & Dad.” To launch the book, the world acclaimed photographer Richardson, is exhibiting picture of his parents at the Colotte in Paris.

The exhibition is joined by a small pop-up store, which includes a selection of products such as t-shirts, G-shock and BabyG Casio watches. Despite what we may think of Richardson, these watches are pretty damn cool. The watches come in a brilliant red plaid, mimicking his trademark button-down shirts.

Mom & Dad is being held at Colette now through November 5 and you can purchase the time pieces online and in store today.

G-shock West opens in London

By Laura on April 1st, 2011

Yesterday we went to check out the opening of the Casio G-Shock West store in the heart of Covent Garden.

When we walked in the front door we were greeted by a live street art installation – meant to serve as a dynamic celebration of the transience of the space and G-Shock’s passion for the spontaneous creativity of the underground art scene.

The new store stocks all the latest G-Shock, Baby-G and G-Shock Premium watches. As I mentioned in my article yesterday I have not really been following G-Shock, and honestly did not have huge expectations for the brand. However, any hesitations I once had were completely gone after checking out the new collection. It really feels as though they have given their classic watches new life through new colour ways and shapes.

A definite highlight of the collection was the limited edition collaboration with revered graffiti artist KRINK , the G-Shock DW-6900KR. This watch epitomises the resilience and toughness associated with graffiti culture and blends a classic G-Shock shape with the iconic silver colouring distinctive of KRINK’s style. The watch comes with a number of useful features including water resistance of up to 200 meters, world timer, full auto and flash alert lighting.

One of our team loved the G-Shock DW-6900KR so much, he went back this morning to pick one up

To celebrate the opening of the store, G-Shock will be offering 20% off your first purchase (until May 31st), so get down there soon to check it out.

Casio G-Shock GRX-5600B-2JF

By Laura on March 31st, 2011

Ahead of the G-shock West launch tonight in Seven Dials, London, I decided to do a little research and check out some of their latest watches. To be honest I was not really expecting much, but was pleasantly surprised. One of my favourites is the G-Shock’s GRX-5600, which merges two of the brand’s most iconic styles, the DW-5600 and DW-6900. The result a highly durable watch for those out on the water. It even has the ability to calculate waves with a solar panel for battery collection. Time to hit the beach…

The Casio Pathfinder

By Laura on March 23rd, 2011

Looking for a new watch with a more grown up look? Then check out the new Pathfinder range from Casio. This watch has all the makings of the G-Shock yet with more mature refinement.

Incorporating a durable casing with some great outdoor functions, including a digital compass, altimeter, thermometer and barometer. Additionally, battery power can be taken in from solar energy thanks to the “Tough Solar” feature.

However, at the end of the day the Pathfinder is a watch, and accuracy is paramount. This is provided by a 6-Band atomic syncing feature which allows radio signals to calibrate the watch – super cool in our opinions!
