The first G-Shock, the DW-5000C-1A, designed by Casio engineer Kikuo Ibe, was released in April of 1983. The G-Shock design has mostly stayed the same over the years, which considering its unmistakable look, is a good thing. G-Shocks have long been known for their digital display and sporty shock resistance design, and although in recent years they have introduced upgrades and innovations such as: solar power, atomic timekeeping, analog displays and even an electronic crown - they are still best known for their distinctive large shock resistance resin cases and digital displays.
