In actuality, the birth of Casio’s storied G-Shock timepiece line started in 1981 when Kikuo Ibe, the Chief Engineer at the firm’s Research and Development Division, put together Project Team Tough. It was a solution to a need, especially after Ibe accidentally broke his watch. After two years of design, prototyping, and test trials, Ibe and his team came away with the first G-Shock watch in 1983. As a way to jump start its 30th anniversary celebration, Casio is introducing the “Rising Red” collection, one of many commemorative editions to come. A symbolic salute to perseverance, especially after the great earthquake & tsunami that hit Japan in 2011, the “Rising Red” collection also serves as a timeline of the technology that went into G-Shock watches. There is the GW-M5630A-4JR, an updated version of DW-5000 Series, the very first G-Shock watch, the DW-6930A-4JR, a derivative of the very popular DW-6900 Series, the GF-8230A-4JR FROGMAN, one of the first watches to be ISO certified for water resistancy, and finally, the GW-9330A-4JR MUDMAN, the few watches out there to be “mud proof”.

In brilliant red accented with metallic gold details, all four will be available at select Casio G-Shock retailers starting this month.
