Acerca de G-SHOCK
El reloj G-SHOCK de Casio, resistente a golpes, es sinónimo de dureza, se creó a partir del sueño del desarrollador, el señor Ibe, de “crear un reloj que nunca se rompiera”. Más de 200 muestras hechas a mano se crearon y se probaron hasta la destrucción, pero finalmente en 1983, el primer G-SHOCK, ahora icónico, llegó a las tiendas de Japón y comenzó a establecerse como “el reloj más resistente de todos los tiempos”. Cada reloj reúne los 7 elementos: resistencia a impactos eléctricos, resistencia a gravedad, resistencia a bajas temperaturas, resistencia a vibraciones, resistencia al agua, resistencia a golpes y dureza. El reloj cuenta con innovaciones y tecnologías de Casio para evitar que sufra golpes directos, lo que incluye componentes internos protegidos con uretano y módulos de cronometraje suspendidos en la estructura del reloj. Since its launch, G-SHOCK has continued to evolve, continuing to support on Mr. Ibe’s mantra “never, never give up." www.gshock.com.
