G-Shock is one of the best selling watch brands in the world. You may wonder how these watches became so popular. Is it due to their advanced features? Do they use better quality materials than other watch companies? The answer is yes, but it’s more than just that. 

When it comes to these men’s watches, the name says it all. G-Shock’s are durable, shock resistant and built to last. Now, you might think these watches are simple, but you’d be wrong. 

Find out all you need to know right here. 

Durability

You don’t have to be an expert to know how awesome G Shock watches are. You might think they just tell the time, and that’s cool but they do much more than that. They are built to withstand just about anything. 

What makes the G-Shock unique is, among other things, its incredible shock resistance. These watches are designed to resist impact with a highly durable movement, shock resistant exterior and protruding bezel. 

The band on G-Shock watches also plays a key role in shock resistance because it is curved stiffly at the point of connection with the case. This allows it to serve as a shock absorber and prevent shocks from affecting the back of the case. 

Every G-Shock model is also water-resistant up to 200 metres. They are the perfect tool for divers and swimmers alike. The surface of the band and case is water-repellent, making it possible to wear your G-Shock in all sorts of situations, from working with water in daily life and taking a shower to participating in activities such as swimming, surfing or jet skiing. The band and case are also made of resin. Some models even have ISO-specified water-resistance standards for use in scuba diving.

Affordability 

Featuring high-tech solar-powered movements and the shock-resistant structure, analogue-digital G-Shock watches are available at an affordable price. The wide selection of G-Shock models allows you to express your unique sense of individuality and enjoy ultimate functionality.

Why sacrifice style for affordability? You don’t have to with this rugged-looking, affordable collection. These timeless watches range from $100 all the way up to $3000 so there is something for every budget. 

Functionality 

Depending on which G-Shock model you select, there are a range of functions you can take advantage of. All models include world time, 5 daily alarms and a stopwatch with a 60-minute countdown timer. 

However, some of the more premium models feature a smartphone link, GPS time-calibration signal reception, standard time radio wave reception and solar-powered tough solar. There really is no limit to these watches so if you’re somebody who loves the outdoors, G-Shock will likely have a feature for you. 

Range

The G-Shock collection is vast, intricate, and somewhat overwhelming. It combines bold designs with rugged, durable materials. From the classic square G-Shock to the Mudmaster, G-Steel, MTG, G-Lide, G-Squad and more. There’s something for everyone, and no other watch brand has the same variety of styles and colourways. 

Style

The G-Shock range is universally recognised for high quality and durability. Admired for its innovative design, the range offers a wide variety of designs and functions to suit all people’s needs. 

Each watch in the G-Shock range is designed to convey toughness, as well as standing out from the crowd. And that’s exactly why so many celebrities have adopted the style. From Eminem to The Undertaker and John Mayer, the G-Shock is still the celebrity watch of choice.
