Based in Japan, the Casio company was founded in 1946 to develop and produce commercial and consumer electronic products. What began with calculators and digital cameras, quickly grew to electronic instruments and digital watches. Casio created the first electronic wristwatch in 1974 and is best known today for their G-Shock line of shock resistant watches released in 1983 which are designed to “never break”. For this reason, both analog and digital G-Shock watches are a popular sport watch. With a refined look, constant innovation, reliability and a high level of precision, Casio is setting trends for digital watches.
