G-Shock is a brand of watches manufactured by the company Casio. They are known for its resistance to shocks (e.g. hard knocks and strong vibrations). They were, and continue to be, designed primarily for sports, military, and outdoor adventure oriented activity; for example, practically all G-Shocks have some kind of stopwatch feature, countdown timer, light and are water resistant.
Recent models have become more luxurious  and design oriented as well as becoming very popular across all age ranges and genders.

The first G-Shock was the designed by an engineer working for Casio named Kikuo Ibe.It was released in April 1983. For the next few years Casio released a handful of new models each year. The Baby-G models were released in 1991.

The popularity of G-Shocks increased rapidly throughout the 1990s. By 1998, 19 million G-Shocks had been sold globally and there seemed to be a peak in demand as over 220 new models were released in that year alone.

Here you can have a look at G-Shock's full range of products.
