The father of Casio G-Shock watches, Kikuo Ibe, will be meeting with timepiece enthusiasts and G-Shock fans alike in a set of rare events open to the public by RSVP happening in Los Angeles and Denver later this month. On August 10, 2016, Hyde Park Jewelers in Denver will host Mr. Ibe followed by Feldmar Watch Company in Los Angeles on August 11 for a discussion on the brand’s evolution through the years with particular focus on the MR-G, the first all-metal G-Shock timepiece.
This year marks an astounding 33 years since the birth of G-Shock and 20 years since the release of the first MR-G, G-Shock’s luxury metal timepiece that delivers on both style and durability. To commemorate these milestones, Mr. Ibe will highlight the design inspiration for the original G-Shock timepiece as well as the MR-G. According to Mr. Ibe, the MR-G is the ultimate Casio metal watch – an innovative design that succeeded in being shock-resistant without sacrificing its bright metallic finish.
G-Shock invites you to discover the rich history of Casio G-Shock and its founder Kikuo Ibe, who continues innovating, evolving, and revolutionizing the watch industry. Guests attending these special events will also be able to browse a large selection of the latest G-Shock models in addition to limited edition pieces, and take part in a signing and photo opportunity.
