CASIO G-SHOCK OFFICIALLY BREAKS GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS TITLE
G-SHOCK Model Survives 25 Ton Truck

DOVER, NJ, December 12, 2017 -Today, Casio G-SHOCK announces it has earned the Guinness World Records title for the Heaviest vehicle to drive over a watch. In order to prove G-SHOCK’s namesake as the toughest watch, Casio challenged the title on October 30, putting its G-SHOCK, DW5600E-1 model to the test under the weight of a 24.97-ton truck.

To achieve such a feat and break the record, the timepiece had to function properly after being run over by a minimum of 20 metric ton truck. The DW5600E-1 is the only watch to successfully withstand the challenge, and this is the first time Casio G-SHOCK has ever held a Guinness World Records title. The iconic square case model was selected for this challenge represents the origin of the G-SHOCK brand, and now represents the brand’s ethos of “Absolute Toughness" like never before.
