G-Shock's Shock the World Tour in Manila

DSC_0187

To celebrate its 30th anniversary, G-Shock launched a series of events called Shock the World, which was held in various cities all over the world including New York, Paris, London and of course, here in Manila.

The event was held at Hyve and was graced by the man behind G-Shock himself, Kikuo Ibe. He told the story of how he came up with a shockproof watch, with matching animations as he spoke. Mr. Ibe was actually quite entertaining and funny. During his introduction, he even spoke in full Filipino: not just one or two sentences, mind you. New additions to their existing timepiece collection were presented afterwards and there was even a video showing a G-Shock watch being run over by a 10-wheeler truck (or was it 12?).

Thanks G-Shock for the limited edition STW MNL watch! I've worn it so many times already!

This limited edition watch has a few additional features like an alarm, stopwatch, and backlight, and it allows you to know the exact date and day of the week. Now, you might say that these are the features expected of a watch but I really get excited every time I use it hihi. Simple pleasures lol.  DSC_0194

The Shock the World Manila watch came with G-Shock's signature look: a white exterior. It also featured red, blue, and yellow accents to represent the Philippines. The 30 red stars symbolize G-Shock's 30th anniversary, and the yellow sun surrounded by 3 stars represent the Philippines.

The press con was followed by a full-blown party with performances by local musicians and artists Urbandub, Motherbass, Up Dharma Down and DJ Aryan.DSC_0897

Thanks G-Shock for an afternoon well-spent!

  4. That was so much fun! It's been awhile since I've worn a G-Shock watch - that white one is quite nostalgic but I still like its style.

    1. From the top, it just looks like the regular G-shock watch, but when you look at the side, there's a touch of Filipino on it! :)

    1. And because of that, we don't have to worry if the watch falls on the floor so many times! :)

  7. I know some friends who covered this event, and I am so envious! They got to meet the Father of G-Shock!

    Every watch collector must have a G-shock. :) It is going to be a classic. Do you know how much is the limited edition Phil designed G-Shock watch?
