A number with special meaning for G-SHOCK. It is used only in the names of models that have inherited the DNA of the very first G-SHOCK among all the thousands that have succeeded it. The square design that is said to symbolize the origin of all G-SHOCK provides evidence of the tireless efforts and continuous innovation born from a developer’s belief that he could create a watch that would not break, even if dropped, and represents the final form every G-SHOCK aims to achieve.Today, after 35 years of evolution, this tough spirit remains as resilient as ever. It is still the source of G-SHOCK’s indomitable strength.
A structure that lessens the force of external shocks by supporting the module at just a few points inside the case. It also utilises the high cushioning material, urethane resin which absorbs shocks while offering durable performance.
A protruding configuration adopted for the case and bezel provides protection against shocks resulting from drops from any direction. Also, the band in a curved shape acts as a shock absorber, thus guarding the back of the case from direct shocks.
