    The history and design of the G-Shock! 2 Videos just posted!

    Look at these videos:

    Nice to see the face of the designers!

    Also I learned something new, I always thought the DW-6600 was the G-Shock with the longest run in production, but apparently it is the AW-500 series that has been available for 20 years since 1989.

    Also the plus/cross sign on the Gulfman buttons apparently is there to remind you of a life boat protector storage case that is often marked with such a cross symbol. And since the G-Shock case is there to protect the "life" of the module inside, its a great symbolism.

    There is always something new to be learned about G-shocks!

    Wow! To think the whole project would have been scrapped if not for a gutsy company president

    I had always suspected that G-Shock designers liked giant robot anime :D I guess I was right

    Great Video's. I just saw it on Great G-Shock world. The AW-500 is an interesting story.

    Cheers,
