Casio Watches pride themselves on being a dependable and practical brand that is also fashionable. The Solar G Shock line is among the most popular of its offerings ever. Casio Watches have long been favored by uniformed personnel for their versatility and durability. The Solar G Shock line is ideal for tactical situations such as that faced by military or police forces.
Casio Watches are also good watches for all outdoor events, with both shock and water resistance to keep the operations reliable, regardless of what the field conditions are. Small wonder that they are such perennial bestsellers, given the company’s legacy of many important industry firsts to its credit.
The Solar G Shock collection has a proud history, tracing all the way back to the first watch that they ever made,the Casiotron. It was introduced in 1974 and was among the first digital watches in the world at a time when the industry had just begun to embrace digital technology. From humble beginnings as a successful manufacturer of cigarette Delta Effex lighter rings (as in, “worn on the hand” – this is Japan, a country associated with gizmos and gadgets galore), this company has gone on to introduce not only the inestimable line above but many innovations in consumer electronics, such as the world’s first ever graphing calculator.
These timepieces have a full complement of on-board instruments for any situation. These instruments include alitmeters and barometers to help gauge oncoming weather. Atomic timekeeping offers unparalleled precision, and many models run on solar energy for reliability and peace of mind. This line is the “Timepiece 3.0” and became popular enough that a line has been put in place for the youth market. These featuring a larger variety of colors with a smaller more compact design that doesn’t compromise on core parent-line principles of durability and utility.
Recall that this watch was originally launched to create one that would never break, realizing the “Triple 10” principles of 10-bar water resistance, 10-meter freefall endurance, and a 10-year battery life. At a time when it was believed that wristwatches were fashion accessories and that Japanese watches in particular were cheap throwaway novelties, this company decided to redefine the wristwatch and in a sense created its own market. That market is now considered the hard-case and practical wristwatch for outdoor events.
This is the reason that all the features previously mentioned are favored by uniformed personnel. Many of these models offer capabilities above and beyond that of a typical chronograph. This incredible history shows the reader how this company has persevered and that quality is not obsolete.
