Description

Casio was established in 1946 by Japanese engineer Tadao Kashio. The company’s first major product couldn’t be further from the world of consumer electronics in which it is now a global force; it was a finger ring that allowed the wearer to smoke a cigarette right down to the filter without the risk of burning their finger. As cigarettes were highly valuable in post-Second World War Japan, the invention was a success, and Kashio and his younger brothers decided to use all the proceeds to develop their own range of calculators. The brothers produced their first desk-sized calculator in 1954, but it wasn’t until Casio’s release of the world’s first all-electronic compact calculator in 1957 that the company truly announced itself on the world stage. Within just twelve years, Casio had opened a European office in Zurich, entered the US and Canadian markets and, such was the demand for their products, been forced to build two dedicated manufacturing plants. Calculators became so popular in Japan that from 1965-70 production doubled each year, with the market exceeding 100 billion yen in total value by 1970. Competition became fierce, and the period is now known in Japan as the “calculator wars.” Casio took a decisive step in winning this “war” in 1972 with the release of the affordable, incredibly well-made and as a result highly popular, Casio Mini. This established the company firmly  at the top of the consumer electronics world, allowing them to diversify and enter the timepiece market in 1974 with the release of the Casiotron, the world’s first Auto Calendar watch. While calculators and watches may nowadays appear to be worlds apart, the 1970s saw a radical shift from mechanical to quartz mechanisms, with these revolutionary new rapidly oscillating crystal movements requiring what is essentially a simple adding machine that shows a running calculation of each second. Thanks to its decade of electronic calculator innovation, Casio was already well stocked with the exact technology that these new movements required, and therefore rapidly gained traction in the global timepiece market. Only eleven years after entering this field, Casio completely reshaped global thought about the function a watch should perform with the release of the pioneering and now legendary G-Shock family. Flying in the face of the growing trend among manufacturers for the production of the thinnest, most delicate watch possible, Casio designed the G-Shock to be so robust and durable that it could comfortably survive being dropped from a building. Due to its unique appearance, the watch was originally only popular in the US, but in the years that have followed it has now become Casio’s signature timepiece. Innovation and world firsts have defined the company’s history ever since, the most striking of these being the release of the first ever touch screen watch in 1991, 24 years before the Apple Watch, and the first ever wrist camera watch in 2000. In short, Casio was producing smartwatches decades before the term had even been coined. Add to this the hipster popularity of the company’s retro designs, and Casio has firmly cemented its reputation as a famously reliable and precise name in both analog and digital watches..


 


At a time when watches were seen as fragile, delicate instruments, Casio’s head of watch design, Kikuo Ibe, set out in 1981 to create “a watch that doesn’t break, even when dropped.” After 200 prototypes and two years of development, the Casio G-Shock was launched in 1983. Gaining its now legendary toughness from Ibe’s revolutionary decision to suspend the module inside a hollow rubber structure, a move he claims was inspired by seeing a child playing with a bouncy ball and realizing that no harm ever comes to the ball’s core, the G-Shock has been the go-to name in superbly durable and precise wristwear ever since. Every G-Shock is 10 metre drop resistant, hammer shock resistant, vibration resistant and water resistant to 20ATM, truly setting the standard in timekeeping toughness.


 


This Casio G-Shock Blue Bezel Men’s Alarm Chronograph (AW-591-2AER) has a dual analogue and digital display protected by a black resin case and a scratch-resistant mineral glass. Featuring a neo-display, world time function, stopwatch, 12 and 24 hour display and the ability of up to 5 different alarms, the watch is fitted with a black resin strap and water resistant to 20ATM.

Free Strap Adjustment

It's important that your watch fits your wrist comfortably and looks great at the same time.

Leather strap watches tend to fit without a problem for most wearers. However, watches fitted with metal bracelets often need adjusting to get the perfect fit.

This is generally a very simple procedure. We can do this for you, or you can get the watch adjusted locally.

Option 1. Specify your wrist measurement and we will adjust it before being sent

When purchasing a watch which has a metal bracelet with adjustable links, we will gladly adjust the watch bracelet to fit your wrist before sending the watch to you - free of charge!

Simply type your wrist measurement (in inches or centimetres) into the bracelet size section of the checkout and we will ensure the watch bracelet is adjusted accordingly before being sent to you. We will include all the surplus links, with the watch.

How to measure your wrist

You can measure your wrist with a piece of string which you can measure against a ruler:

You should allow about half a centimetre (1/4 inch) of slack to prevent it being too tight on your wrist.

In the event of you needing an extra-long wrist bracelet, which requires an extension to the original watch, we must obtain extra links from the manufacturer, and in this event, we will contact you to inform you of any possible delays or applicable charges.

Watches with bracelets adjusted by WatchNation are still eligible under our refund policy.

Option 2. Buy the watch online from WatchNation and have it adjusted locally

If you wish, you can have it adjusted locally by another jeweller or key cutter. However, you will have to cover the cost of this option yourself.
