I am Kikuo Ibe, the founding father of Casio’s G-SHOCK. Ask Me Anything!
Hello Reddit! This is Kikuo Ibe, Research and Development Chief Engineer at Casio Japan, and the creator of G-SHOCK. I’m looking forward to answering your questions about G-Shock, Casio, myself – Ask Me Anything!

My answers are being translated from Japanese by an interpreter, so there may be a short delay in answering your questions, but I will do my best to get to as many as I can. Thank you for your understanding.
UPDATE: Thank you, everyone – sadly, I must now go, so this AMA must now come to a close. I had such a fun time doing this, so thank you very much. This was a great experience for me, and I really enjoyed taking your questions. This year is G-SHOCK’s 30th anniversary, and I am very grateful and appreciative of how many people have come to love and use G-SHOCK watches over the years. I would be very happy if you would continue to support G-SHOCK in the future!
