G-Shock: A Book About Casio’s Popular Timepiece

Casio’s G-Shock is one of the most popular watches of all time, a game-changing feat of engineering and craftsmanship that paved the way for sport-specific watches and even the smartwatches we all know and love today.

In the pages of G-Shock, you can follow along on the watch’s journey—from its creation by Japanese engineer Kikuo Ibe through the 200 prototypes that were crafted in the experimentation process to the design concepts that went into its creation.

Every page of this Rizzoli-published coffee table book is replete with high-definition full-color images straight from the brand’s headquarters, interviews with collectors from around the world, and the advertisements that helped to make the watch so well known and well loved.

Watch collectors and aficionados will love taking this fascinating journey through the creation and spread of one of the most popular watches to come out of the late 1900s, a watch that truly embodies the spirit of “Absolute Toughness”.
