FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

CASIO CELEBRATES 25 YEARS OF G-SHOCK WITH THE
LIMITED EDITION GRAY SKELETON WATCH

Classic Case and Semi-Transparent Gray Band and Bezel is Appealing and Stylish

DOVER, NJ, APRIL 1, 2008 - Casio America, Inc.’s G-Shock brand is 25 years strong with the release of the limited edition gray skeleton - DW5025D-8.

DW5025D-8The design and technology is adapted from the original G-Shock which has set standards with its ruggedness and shock resistance, but features a see through light gray band and bezel. A 25th anniversary logo is engraved on the case back marking its uniqueness.

In 1983, a Casio engineer designed a watch that would withstand a fall from atop a three-story building, creating the world’s toughest watch. Using a triple-protection design for the parts, module, and case, the G-Shock offered a radical new type of watch that was virtually shock proof. Its unique look and practicality was immediately recognized, making the G-Shock wildly popular.

“We are excited about the addition of the gray skeleton to our series of watches celebrating the 25th Anniversary of G-Shock,” said David Johnson, Senior General Manager of Casio’s Timepiece Division. “This limited edition model has all of the rugged features G-Shock is known for.”

The DW5025D-8 is the second watch being released from the 25th Anniversary G-Shock watch series. The watch is water resistant up to 200M and features a multi-function alarm, EL backlight, 1/100-second stopwatch and a countdown timer.

The limited edition 25th Anniversary DW5025D-8 G-Shock Skeleton is available nationwide and online for $130. For more information please visit www.gshock.com.
