G-SHOCK began with an engineer's brief calling for development of an “unbreakable watch.” CASIO responded by organizing Project Team TOUGH in 1981. The team produced over 200 experimental prototypes for performance tests, spending about two years on structural development and parts enhancement. Finally, in 1983, the original shock-resistant structure was completed. This marked the birth of the first G-SHOCK model, the DW-5000C. Throughout the years since, this tough watch has raised challenges insatiably based on its inherited shock-resistant structure. G-SHOCK continues to take up new challenges beyond the limits of time and common sense.

Shock-resistant structure
The unique tough structure was born from an unprecedented idea. This technology has been passed down to every G-SHOCK model for over a quarter-century.

Case design offering protection against free-fall shocks
A prominent bezel configuration was adopted to prevent the buttons and glass from contacting flat surfaces, thus protecting them from shocks when falling at any angle. This design concept stressing protection from shocks is basic to every G-SHOCK case design, and the same protective structure is employed not only for our urethane cases, but also for our metal cases and analogue watch cases.

Hollow structure Hollow structure

Hollow-structure case
If we tried to absorb shocks simply by encasing the module with urethane resin or other such materials, the case would grow to immense proportions. G-SHOCK realizes high shock resistance by supporting the module inside the case at just a few points, thus creating a situation as if the module were floating in air.
Conventional concept
Dropping Shock Shock Shock Shock Dispersed Dispersed Dispersed

Protection of important parts with cushioning material
The crystal oscillator and other important parts inside the module are individually protected with cushioning material. This prevents contact failures and improper operation due to distortions that could otherwise occur inside the module if the watch experienced a sudden strong shock.

G-SHOCK concept
Dropping Dispersed

Cushioning material

Urethane band that acts as a shock absorber
The band actually acts as a shock absorber itself, protecting against shocks from behind. We have established strict standards for the combination ratio of urethane resin employed. Neither too soft nor too hard, the superb specified combination realizes an ideal balance between shock resistance and comfortable wearability.

TOUGH SOLAR
The combination of a solar panel with a large-capacity rechargeable battery enables a variety of energy- hungry to operate smoothly.

A solar panel converts even weak illumination from fluorescent lighting into electric power. A rechargeable battery with a large power storage capacity supports stable operation of various functions with high electricity consumption. You never have to worry about the battery running down because it's a solar battery.

Shock-resistant metal band that prevents drop shocks
This G-SHOCK metal band prevents damage from shocks, even if the watch is dropped, by employing a structure with wide intervals at the connection points between band pieces and 150-degree flexibility for freer band movement.
