If you are a rambling outdoor guy, then a Casio G-SHOCK watch may be for you. Renown worldwide as the toughest watch in the world, the G-SHOCK was launched by Casio back in 1983. The design teams had three criteria in mind when they created the concept of the G-SHOCK. First, they sought a watch with a 10 meter free fall capacity that was also resistant to 10-bar of water pressure and with enough battery life for 10 years.

The G-SHOCK was born and is the watch of choice for those who do not want to be concerned about handling their timepiece in a delicate and careful manner. Yes the G-SHOCK can handle a few bumps and knocks, it can be dropped, compressed, submersed in water, frozen and hit with a hammer and still come out as good as ever. These properties make it an ideal outdoors watch, suitable for a variety of scenarios.

While Casio made their G-SHOCK sports watch tough enough to handle being dropped on the floor, or even able to stand up to being smash against a solid object occasionally, Casio decided that this watch would be built to last and so included solar power battery recharge. This means you never have to return your watch to the manufacturer to change the battery and can use a variety of energy hungry functions at all times.

Casio g shock atomic watches are self-adjusting, meaning they receive signals carrying American Standard Time data transmitted from Fort Collins, Colorado. This allows your watch to always keep an accurate time, without you ever having to set it. Real time calibration is also available in most European countries, China and Japan.
