G-SHOCK, the watch that brought the new concept of roughness to the chronometer, began with a uncontrolled dispute to the conservative wisdom of the day, a developer’s belief that it was feasible to assemble a watch that wouldn’t shatter,even if dropped. Project Team Tough was shaped to build it in 1981. The team created over 200 models one after another over a phase of about two years.
They lastly arrived at a shock-resistant configuration. This marked the origin of a expertise that is tough to the core. And G-SHOCK has sustained its continuous development ever since, in hunt of greater robustness in every respect, from structure and materials to functions. Today, the development team’s fervent challenge and constant efforts have reached completion in Triple G Resist, a formation with the strength to withstand 3 types of gravitational acceleration. In its chase of comfort under any circumstances, moreover, G-SHOCK realized setting up of Smart Access, a system assuring responsive, reliable functionality. Stronger than ever, and targeting even superior potency, G-SHOCK’s challenge is never-ending.
The Story Behind G-Shock.” In it, Ibe-san explains why and how the G-Shock came to be. Moreover, how he and his team could conquer the countless challenges that it meant to develop the world’s first “watch, so durable it wouldn’t break even when dropped”. In the early ’80s – that was Mr. Ibe’s mission statement after he dropped and broke a watch he received as a gift from his father.
After two years of painstaking trial and error, and at a time when he was nearly ready to give up, he came upon a child playing with a ball – and that, as he puts it, resulted in a dramatic shift towards the solution.
