G-Shock X-Large Military Series Watch Review
Being born as a natural innovator, Casio embraced the newest and most ground-breaking designs and features since 1974. Starting with the basic idea that watches are supposed to offer all the information available regarding time, they built devices that could display and precisely indicate minutes, seconds, months and days on the same screen.
The company became a part of history when managing to launch the first automatic calendar fitted watches called CASIOTRON. Modern day devices like the G-Shock X-Large Military Series Watch embrace the same philosophy, providing unique features put together for the ultimate efficiency rate.
G-Shock X-Large Military Series Watch
G-Shock watches have a history of over 25 years. In 1983 Casio started thinking outside the box and came up with the concept of shock resistant time telling devices. Not fearing competition and scepticism, developers started a quest that will eventually lead them to conceiving the most resistant timepiece on the market.
Patenting the triple protection structure for their components, manufacturers started getting worldwide recognition, becoming one of the most popular watchmakers in the 1990′s. finding their path and creating a properly defined image for themselves, Casio started investing in new technology.
Always working with open-minded engineers and designers, they found ways of fitting watches with never before seen sensors and solar powered features. Since then, G-Shock Series have become stronger and more durable, always being one step forward.
The Military series continue a long and successful line of ultimate time telling devices. Decades passed and Casio still apply the same work and design pattern entitled “Triple 10”. In the beginning this started with developer’s desire of building a watch that can deal with 10 bar water pressure, 10 meter falls and have a 10-year battery life.
Coming up with a timepiece as original and as groundbreaking as planned took about 2 years and 200 prototypes, but the results were worth it.
