In 1974, Tokyo-based Casio brought its electronics expertise to the craft of watch-making. Since then, Casio has consistently manufactured high-quality wristwatches engineered to work as well in some of the most demanding environments on Earth as they do in the office. The Casio watches range encompasses sturdy, waterproof and shockproof models for everyday use through to technologically advanced timepieces that place detailed environmental information such as barometric pressure, ambient temperature, compass direction and the current altitude on the user’s wrist.
Casio watches – Creativity and contribution
Casio watches are noted for their durability. The original design brief for engineer Kikuo Ibe was for a watch that would be able to withstand being dropped from a third-storey building. This rugged design matched with a contemporary aesthetic means Casio has remained a firm favourite with consumers ever since.
Casio has a reputation for boundary setting technological improvements. With developments such as the use of radio control to precisely set the time on the watch, you can be sure your timepiece will be accurate. With many Casio watches also featuring inbuilt solar cells to recharge the internal battery, you can be assured that you will be on time all the time.
Casio watches are available in a mind-blowing range of colour options and remain a stylish youth culture favourite with fashion icons including Pixie Lott, Rihanna and Lady Gaga featuring Casio models in their music videos.
Casio watches - Retro style, as worn by the stars.
Casio watches provide a range of chronograph and stopwatch and split lap facilities for demanding athletes. For nautical pursuits, Casio watches are the perfect tools for mariners thanks to an array of functions including digital compass, depth gauge, barometer and thermometer. The fusion of reliability and ruggedness embodied by Casio has led to the company becoming the official watch supplier of the Royal Air Force Ski Team.
