Casio G-Shock Featuring the Symbolic Red Brand Colour

Casio will celebrate the 35th anniversary of its G-SHOCK brand of shock-resistant watches with the release in April 2018 of the RED-OUT commemorative collection of four G-SHOCK models. The watches will feature an all-red matte colour scheme, achieved with a new coating technology that incorporates particles into the paint, creating a lustreless red finish. The LCDs are red, with black metal parts accentuating the red theme. The case backs are engraved with the G-SHOCK 35th-anniversary logo designed by Eric Haze, the world-renowned graphic artist. The strap keeper is emblazoned with a star emblem that signifies 35 years.

The development of G-SHOCK began in 1981 when an engineer dropped and broke his watch, sparking the desire to create a rugged watch. After two years and over 200 prototypes, the first G-SHOCK model with a shock-resistant construction was released. The G-SHOCK overturned the accepted notion at the time that wristwatches were inherently fragile and needed to be carefully handled. Since then Casio has continued to release new G-SHOCK models that break traditions, based on the brand concept of “Absolute Toughness”. G-SHOCK’s total worldwide shipments surpassed 100 million units in August 2017.

The Four Models of the RED-OUT Collection

  • The DW-5635C has a square watch face.
  • The DW-5735C is based on the DW-5700, an early G-SHOCK that was popular for its round case and digital LCD.
  • The DW-6935C is based on the DW-6900, which is the basis of many G-SHOCK collaboration models.
  • The GA-735C features a bold oversized case.
