Casio’s G-Shock has had a pretty interesting history spanning 35 years. We explored with their chief designer and father of the G-Shock Kikuo Ibe, and here we discuss the top selling G-Shock watches.

Methodology


• The ranking includes all models shipped anywhere in the world.
• Shipping data for color variations were attributed to their base models. For example, models that include DW-6900 in the model name, such as the DW-6900MR, were attributed to the DW-6900 model, while the DW-6935C was considered a separate model.

Here are the Top 3

No. 1: GA-110 (Released in 2010)


Built from precision parts, the design of the GA-110 evokes the cool sophistication of Japanese manufacturing. The GA-110 has been sold in many color variations and, with its global popularity, captured first place.

No. 2: GA-100 (Released in 2010)


Like the first-ranked GA-110, the GA-100 is popular for its oversize case and bold presence. It is also distinguished by its symmetrically placed LCDs and dynamic design.

No. 3: DW-6900 (Released in 1995)


The DW-6900 was released just after the DW-6600 (1994), which was the first G-SHOCK to feature an EL backlight. The backlight’s ability to display text or a symbol became a popular feature. The DW-6900 has also been the base model for a variety of collaboration and special models.
