Since 1983

dw-5000c

ABSOLUTE TOUGHNESS

A 10-year battery life, 10-bar water resistance and 10-meter dropping shock resistance.

These were the three requirements of the “Triple 10” concept that led to development G-SHOCK's shock-resistant structure.

The rugged shape and robust styling originated with an engineer's brief calling for an "unbreakable watch".

Since its birth in 1983, G-SHOCK has continued its unrestrained evolution while retaining its unique basic structure.

Today, G-SHOCKcontinues to take up challenges beyond the limits of time and common sense

Το βιδωτό καπάκι δίνει άλλη αίσθηση ποιότητας και στιβαρότητας.
Κρίμα που σε πιο ακριβά μοντέλα, δεν υπάρχει αυτό το καπάκι, παρά μόνο το απλό και φθηνότερο στην όψη ''λαμαρινάκι'' με τις βιδούλες στις 4 άκρες... (Όπως στο GW-3000 που έχω)
Όσο για το DW-5900 πραγματικά κρίμα που δεν επανεκδόθηκε ακόμα!
Το μηχανικό ρολόι, είναι η πιο μικρή, η μακροβιότερη και η πιο προσωπική μηχανή που μπορεί να φέρει ένας άνθρωπος επάνω του. Μοιάζει σαν ένα μικρό ''εργοστάσιο'' επάνω στον καρπό και όσο πιο πολύπλοκος είναι ο μηχανισμός του, τόσο η αίσθηση αυτή γίνεται εντονότερη!

Και λιγη ιστορια

''In 1983, Casio launched the shock-resistant G-SHOCK watch. This product shattered the notion that a watch is a fragile piece of jewelry that needs to be handled with care, and was the result of Casio engineers taking on the challenge of creating the world's toughest watch. Using a triple protection design for the parts, module, and case, the G-SHOCK offered a radical new type of watch that was unaffected by strong impacts or shaking. Its practicality was immediately recognized, and its unique look, which embodied its functionality, became widely popular, resulting in explosive sales in the early 1990s. The G-SHOCK soon adopted various new sensors, solar-powered radio controlled technology, and new materials for even better durability. By always employing the latest technology, and continuing to transcend conventional thinking about the watch, the G-SHOCK brand has become Casio's flagship timepiece product. '

ο ''πατερας των G ειναι ο κυριος  Kikuo Ibe



το 2013 συμπληρωθηκαν τα 30 χρονια της εταιριας,



οπου και εβγαλε στην αγορα παρα πολλα επετειακα



















Για την ιστορια
το σπανιοτερο ''square'' που φτανει τα 4000$ + ειναι το πρωτο collaboration που εκανε η εταιρια με την Honda



collaborations
ειναι οι συνεργασιες που κανει η εταιρια με διαφορες fashion brands,designers,stores, κ.λ.π.
απο τις πιο γνωστες επισης ειναι με την Mastermind Japan










το τελευταιο collaboration (και πολυ επιτυχημενο σε πωλησεις) ειναι με την εταιρια 'maharishi'

''About Maharishi
Founded by Hardy Blechman in 1994, maharishi carries a strong ethos of respect for nature while utilizing the latest technology. The brand's authentic utilitarian aesthetic rapidly propelled it onto the international design stage and after a decade of research in 2004 Blechman published DPM: Disruptive Pattern Material, a 900 page comprehensive encyclopedia of camouflage, which demonstrated the fact that camouflage has its roots in nature, natural history and art, rather than the military. Since 2004 Blechman has used DPM as a vehicle to spread the use of camouflage within culture, slowly helping to reclaim its symbolic value away from the military.''

οπου και εχει τυπωμενο pattern camo την επιφανεια της σεληνης ''Lunar Bonsai''.

An Interview with The Father of G-SHOCK
by Dzul Fazly



If Mr Kikuo Ibe had lived in Singapore, he might well have ended up in jail instead of creating the iconic Casio G-SHOCK watch.

He admitted that when testing designs for what would become the G-SHOCK, he would throw prototypes from the toilet window of his Hamura research office on the third storey to see how they survived.

“I made sure there was absolutely no one below before I threw the watches. Otherwise, it would have been embarrassing,” he said.

Mr Ibe, 60, a Japanese mechanical engineer who graduated from Tokyo’s Sophia University, was inspired to create the ultimate rugged watch after he dropped his watch 32 years ago and damaged it.

It was a high school graduation present from his father. He had worn it for 12 years before that fateful drop.

Watches then were cherished, expensive and less than robust.

At the time, he had been working on miniaturisation research at Japanese electronics giant Casio. After his watch was ruined, he directed his efforts to researching a watch that could withstand a 10m drop.

He and his engineers spent two years developing – and dropping – about 200 prototypes from the window before they managed to perfect the design.

It was, he said, a very intense period of constant experimentation. “It is one of the reasons I am so slim,” he joked, gesturing at his frame.

The team, he said, was on the brink of giving up when Mr Ibe experienced an eureka moment.

It was literally a walk in the park.

There, he saw a child bouncing a ball.

The sight of the ball in mid-air gave him the idea of having the main watch module float in the air, thereby preventing any shock from reaching it.

He tested the design and it worked. Thus was born the G-SHOCK with a hollow structure and a floating module.

This shock-resistant design has remained constant, although new features and styles have been added.

The brand has transcended its rugged beginnings to become a fashion statement.

Mr Ibe said he had in mind “those doing hard work such as road workers” when he designed the G-SHOCK watches, which are now worn not only by singers and students, but also by skydivers and soldiers

“I never imagined that it would become so popular,” he said.

He started the metallic line of G-SHOCK watches, as he wanted people to be able to grow old with their watches. They buy the casual designs when they are young and can switch to the more mature metallic designs when they are older, he explained.

Mr Ibe has also designed other Casio watches, such as the Edifice models.

His only regret, he said, is that he has not been able to create a fire-resistant watch for firefighters because he has not found a material that can withstand fire.

“If I have a chance, I certainly would like to look into it,” he said.

When asked what his dream G-SHOCK watch would be, he said: “It is probably impossible. But I would like to design one that, by just thinking about the time, it will pop up in your mind.”

His hobby is something more down to earth – vegetable farming in Saitama, where he lives, about a 40-minute drive from Tokyo.

On a 100 sq m of land, he grows vegetables such as carrots, white radish and Japanese mustard spinach.

The harvest is usually so large that he ends up giving the excess to his neighbours. “As the vegetables are organic, the neighbours are very happy to receive them,” he said.

He loves growing vegetables because “you can see the result of the love and hard work you put in”.

He likened it to the G-SHOCK team pouring heart and soul into the watches and seeing their work bear fruit.

Despite already spending more than 30 years in the company, he wants to continue to be involved in it and pass his knowledge on to his juniors for as long as he is able to.

DW-5600 Model Versions – The First Nine – An Illustrated Guide
by Dzul Fazly
Introduction

June 1987, the DW-5600 became the first G-Shock to be distributed in more than two model versions. Previous G-Shocks such as the DW-5000, WW-5100, DW-5200 and DW-5400 were each released in a silver and gold variety (the WW-5300 and DW-5500 each exist only in the silver) but the screwback DW-5600 had nine different model versions between 1987 and 1992.

At the time of the DW-5600’s introduction in 1987, the G-Shock line was only four years old and had not yet become the home-run hit for Casio that it would later, in the early-mid 90’s be. With the DW- 5600, Casio used the same formula they had with other models: same steel case, resin bezel and band allbeit different dial. The DW-5600, which used the 691 module from 1987 to 1989 and the newer 901 module in 1990, was the first G-Shock to use Philips head screws in the bezel and was also the first G-Shock model to be made in colors other than the standard black. Since then, the basic DW-5600 has undergone some changes and was produced in an abundance of colors, styles, collaborations and special editions.

Here, in chronological order, are the first 9 screwback DW-5600s:

1. DW-5600C-1V – June, 1987



The G-Shock many collectors think of when they talk about vintage Gs. The C-1V is the model most often encountered and was distinguished by the silver color scheme, black bezel and band and a blue “WATER 200M RESIST” at the top of the dial. Buttons, bezel screws and buckle silver in color. This basic version saw a long production run.

2. DW-5600C-1 – June, 1987



his is almost exactly the same model as above but with the “WATER 20BAR RESIST” at the top of the dial. Most collectors agree that this was the Japanese domestic market model whereas the C-1V (above) was the export version. The DW-5600 was the first G-Shock that had these 200M/20BAR difference and it might  have been that Casio decided to test the waters by making separate domestic and export models in order to track the sales for each. In the West, this is a tough watch to source.

3. DW-5600C-9BV – June, 1987



This is exactly the same watch as the DW-5600C-1V except that it has a yellow bezel with black lettering, a yellow band with black band keeper and a black or silver buckle. The buttons and bezel screws are silver in color. This was Casio’s first yellow G-Shock.

4. DW-5600C-9V – June, 1987



The first incarnation of the gold DW-5600. Like earlier gold models in the G-Shock line this watch has gold buttons, bezel screws, buckle and accents on the dial. The black bezel also has gold colored lettering instead of the normal white. In this model the gold border on the dial is an unbroken line.

5. DW-5600C-9CV – October, 1990




The second gold DW- 5600. This model is similar to the C-9V except that the gold border is thick and is broken at the top by the word “CASIO” and at the bottom by the “SHOCK RESIST” badge. This watch has gold dial accents, buttons, bezel screws, buckle and LCD. This model occasionally has a green backlight.

6. DW-5600B-2V – November, 1991



Nicknamed The Blue Speed, 1991 saw the beginning of colorful G-Shocks and this model, along with the Green Speed below was among the first. The bezel, band and dial accents are blue. The watch has silver buttons and bezel screws. Replacement bezel and bands are not available.

7. DW-5600B-3V – November, 1991



Nicknamed The Green Speed, this model is stylistically identical to the Blue Speed except that the bezel, band and dial accents are green. Buttons, bezel screws and buckle are silver in color. Replacements bezel and bands are not available.

8. DW-5600C-9B – December, 1992




The yellow domestic version. This watch is the same as the DW-5600C-1, with “WATER 20BAR RESIST” on the dial except that it has a yellow bezel and band. This model, like the DW-5600C-1, is not easily found in the West.

9. DW-5600D-1 – December, 1992




Casio’s first camouflage G-Shock. The bezel for this model is the same one as the DW-5600B-2V but the band is a blue and cream mix. Buttons, bezel screws, buckle,dial accents and LCD are gold. The watch bears the words “WATER 20BAR RESIST”. Although replacement bezels are not, the bands are still available for this model but fetch a premium price.
Rarity

Common

    DW-5600C-1V
    DW-5600C-9BV
    DW-5600C-9CV
    DW-5600C-9V

Uncommon

    DW-5600C-1
    DW-5600C-9B
    DW-5600B-3V
    DW-5600B-2V

Rare

    DW-5600D-1

Conclusion

In general, these first 9 consist of:

    2 black and silver
    2 black and gold
    2 yellow
    3 colors – blue, green and blue camouflage

There were 4 models introduced in 1987, 1 in 1990, 2 in 1991 and 2 in 1992. The models introduced in 1987 and 1990 can be found with either the 691 or 901 module. The models from 1991 and 1992 have only the 901 module.

This is a challenging set for collectors to assemble and can take some time to complete.
