Casio tough solar
Solar watches are powered by light energy. The solar fields "catch" the light and transform it into energy. The CASIO Tough Solar System is now so advanced that even the weakest light sources are sufficient to operate the watches. The solar cells are so small and inconspicuous that they can be integrated easily into every watch face design. CASIO`s solar field can also be manufactured in any colour and design. An accumulator in solar watches saves "superfluous" energy and releases it when the watch is in darkness. Solar watches are always equipped with an accumulator. The accumulator is charged automatically and does not require manual activation.
CASIOâs original solar-charging system converts not only sunlight but also light from fluorescent lamps and other sources into power. Light captured by a tiny solar panel is used to generate electric power and charge a built-in rechargeable battery with ample capacity to operate several energy-hungry functions with ease.
CASIO’s shock-resistant G-SHOCK watch is synonymous with toughness, born from the developer Mr. Ibe’s dream of ‘creating a watch that never breaks’. Over 200 handmade samples were created and tested to destruction until finally in 1983 the first, now iconic G-SHOCK hit the streets of Japan and began to establish itself as ‘the toughest watch of all time’. Each watch encompasses the 7 elements; electric shock resistance, gravity resistance, low temperature resistance, vibration resistance, water resistance, shock resistance and toughness. The watch is packed with Casio innovations and technologies to prevent it from suffering direct shock; this includes internal components protected with urethane and suspended timekeeping modules inside the watch structure. Since its launch, G-SHOCK has continued to evolve, continuing to support on Mr. Ibe’s mantra “never, never give up.” www.gshock.com .
