    Casio Funk?

    I get all the various branding names used by Casio: G-Shock, Lineage, Edifice, Oceanus, Sheen - but what is "Funk" all about?

    I know some of the Lineage models I've seen or got, are often named "Casio Funk" on places like Amazon.

    It means atomic time keeping. Watches with that feature are called "Funkuhren" in Germany.

    For a moment, I thought you were in a funk about CASIO... meaning nothing they were making was really exciting you to get a new model.

    I thought it was going to be a cleaning question! :)

    I'm sure someone will correct me if I'm wrong, but I think "funk" is German for radio, as in "funkuhr" - radio-clock, or "Telefunken" the electronics manufacturer.

    Mind you, I like the idea of a Casio Funk series - they could kick off with the James Brown Signature edition, the Sly Stone and Family of watches...

    Get on down, ah! Get on up!
