The Design of the Orginal G-Shocks

    Posted the 5th day of August in 2009 by Riley.

The Japanese ERG Design website has posted a couple articles on the design of two of the first G-Shock models. The DW-5000C-1A, which was the very first G-Shock, and the DW-5500C-1 G-Shock II that came out in 1985. The translation is a bit rough, but these articles simply go over each of the major design elements on these two watches. These designs live on 25 years later in many of the current lineup of G-Shocks.
