Japanese electronics giant Casio are celebrating the evolution of their iconic G-SHOCK watch with the G-SHOCK: Shock The World Tour Sydney. The tour has already been through London, New York, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Shanghai and now it’s coming down under. Sydney will host the event, which will take place on Thursday 19th November 2009 at CarriageWorks. There will be a special guest appearance by the man who designed the very first G-SHOCK watch, Japanese engineer and ‘Father of G-SHOCK’ Kikuo Ibe, plus a live DJ set from Australian DMC champion DJ Dexter, Sydney girls Hoops DJs and Melbourne’s M.A.F.I.A.

The G-SHOCK watch is at the forefront of modern design; it’s highly functional and durable and its connection to fashion, sports, art and music has grown over the years and has evolved from an extreme sports watch to be a fashion staple must have. The evening will be a showcase of the latest timepieces, collaborative designs and evolutionary technology.

To win tickets to the event, consumers simply purchase a G-SHOCK watch from participating stores and enter their details at www.g-shocksydney.com.

G-SHOCK watches first appeared in 1983. Mr Ibe wanted to invent a brand of watch that was ‘shock’ resistant and durable. 26 years on, G-SHOCK watches are one of the toughest timepieces available. They are 200m water resistant and suitable for any extreme sporting lifestyle. Rising in popularity in the 90s, Casio saw over 220 new models released in one year during 1998, and G-SHOCK has collaborated with many designers, musicians and celebrities to release limited edition models and custom designs.
