As a leading provider of streetwear and fashion, HUF combines craftsmanship, design and functionality in every creation. “The latest design is a perfect match for the classic California skate culture that HUF was founded on, with the signature durability that G-SHOCK is known for, creating a standout watch that celebrates the best of both brands,” she said Tadashi ShibuyaVice President of Casio’s Timepiece Division.

About G SHOCK
CASIO’s shock-resistant G-SHOCK watch is synonymous with ruggedness, born out of developer Mr. Ibe’s dream of “creating a watch that never breaks”. Over 200 handcrafted samples were created and tested to the point of destruction before the first, now iconic, G-SHOCK hit the streets in 1983 Japan and began to establish itself as “the toughest watch ever”. Each clock includes the 7 elements; Electric shock resistance, gravity resistance, low temperature resistance, vibration resistance, water resistance, shock resistance and toughness. The watch is packed with Casio innovations and technologies to prevent it from being subjected to direct impact; These include urethane-protected internal components and suspended timing modules within the watch structure. Since its launch, G-SHOCK has continued to evolve and continue to support Mr. Ibe’s mantra “never, never give up”. www.gshock.casio.com
