Casio Launches Newest Bluetooth G-Shock Watch at Baselworld

Casio Celebrates Its 30th Anniversary with Limited Edition G-Shocks

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. To celebrate G-Shock's upcoming 30th Anniversary (2013), Casio has released limited edition models of the best selling styles, all with red gloss or matte red finishes. Each piece features a special case back engraved with a "30th Anniversary" logo designed by graffiti artist Eric Haze. Of the

Casio Pathfinder Pro Trek - Baselworld 2011

Last month in Basel, Switzerland I had a chance to try on and photograph a new version of the Casio Pathfinder. Casio is now branding the collection with their "Pro Trek" designation, which was previously only used in the Asian market. The watch has the same functions as the version I tested earlier this year, and that is a definitely a good thing. This means it still includes: a barometer, thermometer, altimeter, compass, chronograph, count down timer, worldtimer and alarm. The changes are all aesthetic, including the new Pro Trek designation on the dial. The new look is more elegant, and definitely gives the watch a more upscale feel.
