G-SHOCK HIGH FASHION
The first thing that comes to mind when one thinks of g-shocks is their high fashion appeal. They are known for being very stylish watches.
Many celebrities wear them, such as David Beckham, Jennifer Lopez, Rihanna and many others. They have been popular since the early 2000’s. Their popularity increased even further with the release of the movie “Her” starring Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt.
The g-shock watches are made from stainless steel and gold plated. They come in different colors, but they all share some common features:
They are water resistant up to 30 meters (98 feet)
They have a small crown at 3 o’clock position which allows the wearer to wind it or set time. When winding it, the watch will run for about 4 hours before needing to be reset.
They have a date window at 6 o’clock position.
They have a second hand with minute hand at 12 o’clock position. The hour hand moves forward and backward.
These are called chronograph functions.
The dial of the g-shock is divided into three sections: upper section, middle section and lower section. The upper section shows the 24 hour time.
The middle section shows the minute markers. The lower section shows the hours and minutes. The markers are large, easy to read and they have led lights which show up in the dark.
You can find a g-shock for any occasion:
