Tokyo, February 22, 2019 — Casio Computer Co., Ltd. announced today that it has produced a historical ranking of the top models in the G-SHOCK brand of shock-resistant watches, which celebrated its 35th anniversary in 2018. G-SHOCK surpassed a total of 100 million units shipped in 2017, and now Casio has made public the all-time top three G-SHOCK watches, by units shipped over the last 35 years.
- The ranking includes all models shipped anywhere in the world.
- Shipping data for color variations were attributed to their base models. For example, models that include DW-6900 in the model name, such as the DW-6900MR, were attributed to the DW-6900 model, while the DW-6935C was considered a separate model.
No. 1: GA-110 (Released in 2010)
Built from precision parts, the design of the GA-110 evokes the cool sophistication of Japanese manufacturing. The GA-110 has been sold in many color variations and, with its global popularity, captured first place.
No. 2: GA-100 (Released in 2010)
Like the first-ranked GA-110, the GA-100 is popular for its oversize case and bold presence. It is also distinguished by its symmetrically placed LCDs and dynamic design.
No. 3: DW-6900 (Released in 1995)
The DW-6900 was released just after the DW-6600 (1994), which was the first G-SHOCK to feature an EL backlight. The backlight’s ability to display text or a symbol became a popular feature. The DW-6900 has also been the base model for a variety of collaboration and special models.
Casio thanks G-SHOCK fans everywhere for powering the brand through an amazing 35 years. Casio plans to release many new products in 2019 that will put a whole new spin on the 35-year history of the brand. Casio is committed to driving progress with the G-SHOCK brand and will continue to seek out new challenges. Casio is determined to more than exceed expectations for the G-SHOCK brand and will continue putting out products that astonish and amaze. Look out for G-SHOCK in its 36th year!
