The term 'timeless' isn't taken lightly and is only directed toward things that make monumental impacts, which is why the Casio G-Shock is happily awarded that title. Although plastic digital watches separate themselves from the hype of precious luxury timepieces, Casio's idea behind the G-Shock was to create a forever wristwatch that would never break. Casio formed Project Team Tough in 1981 to develop over 200 prototypes in a two-year period to perfect what we know today as the G-Shock. In Rizzoli's new G-SHOCK publication, Author Ariel Adams takes readers on a journey through the spirit and evolution of this distinctive timepiece.
Chapters feature a detailed history of the innovative G-Shock, behind-the-scenes imagery from the brand’s headquarters in Japan, interviews with some of the brand’s diehard collectors, and much more. Casio's long list of influential customers includes pro-surfer Gabe Kling, musician Kid Cudi, designers Takashi Murakami and Nigo, and fashion brands like BAPE, Kith, Stüssy, Maison Margiela, and Supreme.
