The slim housing of the GSTB400-1A is made possible by the thinning of the parts of the indoor module without affecting the technical functions. It features a multi-layered vapor deposition treated dial for an enhanced metal texture. The top bezel was given five different surfaces, while the middle bezel was given four different surfaces. This creates an elegant effect and changes the appearance of the metal structure depending on the viewing angle.

The shock-resistant G-SHOCK watch from CASIO is a synonym for toughness, born from the dream of the developer Mr. Ibe, “to create a watch that never breaks”. Over 200 handcrafted samples were made and tested to the point of destruction until the first, now iconic G-SHOCK hit the streets of 1983 Japan and began to establish itself as “the toughest watch ever”. Each clock includes the 7 elements; Electric shock resistance, gravity resistance, low temperature resistance, vibration resistance, water resistance, shock resistance and toughness. The watch is packed with innovations and technology from Casio to avoid direct shock. This includes internal components protected with urethane and hanging timekeeping modules within the watch structure. Since its inception, G-SHOCK has evolved and continues to support Mr. Ibe's mantra “Never, never give up”. www.gshock.com
