CASIO was first launched in the mid-1950s as an electronics company. Since its origin, CASIO has developed a variety of technologies, including calculators, typewriters, registers, computers, and most notably—watches. While their first electronic wristwatch was designed in the 70s, the company created the first-ever G-SHOCK shock-resistant silhouette. Since developing electronic wristwatches for over 50 years, the brand has specialized in crafting the most durable and high-quality electronic watches on the market. Although CASIO is most well known for its line of G-SHOCK watches, the brand also carries additional lines that include vintage, classic and dress-style watches.
