In 1983 the first G-Shock watch was launched in Japan. It's name originates from the fact that the engineers' design prototype represented a victory over gravity - when the watch hits the ground.

By 1988 G-Shock was booming in Japan. In 1997, G-Shock mania continues to escalate in the UK with limited edition watches quickly becoming collectors items.
