    Kikuo Ibe - The Father of G-Shock

    I'm certain you all know the origin story of G-Shock. It's been retold many times.

    I tried to look at it a little differently and examine the background motivation behind his desire to create the watch.




    Not sure I nailed it though. Let me know?

    Regards,

    Sometimes the story is told with a "pocket watch" breaking, other times that he ran into someone/coworker and the band on his "wrist watch" broke.

    regardless its a cool story - it's even cooler when you hear him tell it in person.

    Yup, I’d say that you nailed it and clenched the ends over as well.
