Exciting news: Casio & G-Shock have arrived at the Time+Tide Shop

Jamie Weiss

Here at Time+Tide, we follow a mantra of “rare, exclusive and limited”. The brands we stock in our Melbourne Discovery Studio and on our online store are, for the most part, microbrands that don’t make many watches and aren’t stocked in very many places – and that’s the way we like it. The exceptions are brands that offer either insane value for money and/or truly unique features – or both. And Casio ticks both those boxes.

So, we are delighted to announce that, after heaps of customer feedback, Casio and G-Shock watches are officially launching on the Time+Tide Shop.

I’m stoked that we’re now stocking Casio. As one of the most trusted names in the watch industry, Casio has been synonymous with quality, innovation, durability and value for decades. You simply can’t talk about watches without talking about Casio. Their G-Shock line in particular has become a symbol of resilience and style for watch enthusiasts worldwide – and every good watch collection needs a G-Shock (or two, or three…) As Andrew has put it, “It’s the least surprising twist in a conversation when a watch collector tells you they’re into G-Shock.”

However, we’re not stocking every Casio or G-Shock SKU under the sun – I mean, that would be nigh-on impossible. Instead, we’re stocking a curated range that we think are must-haves for all watch collectors. Whether you’re at the start of your watch journey or you’re a well-seasoned WIS, there’s a G-Shock or Casio for you.

Casio CA500WE-1A

Casio CA500WE 1A

Indulge your love for gadgety design and embrace your inner nerd. The Casio “calculator watch”, which has been a perennial favourite since its 1980s debut, gets a high-quality and modern stainless steel makeover. Impress your friends with your quick maths and retro style. Price: A$199.

Casio MDV107D-1A2

Casio MDV107D 1A2

Introducing the “Bill Gates Batman”: a bicolour take on the popular Casio Duro, which billionaire Bill Gates famously wears. Why Batman? IYKYK. Boasting a 200-metre water resistance rating and a screw-down caseback; a unidirectional diving bezel and a steel bracelet, this is an exceptional daily wearer. Price: A$229.

G-SHOCK GA2100P-1A

G SHOCK GA2100P 1A

It could be argued that the GA2100, also known as the “CasiOak”, is one of the best watches released in the last 10 years. Based on the original DW-5000C, the GA2100 is a refined resin octagonal digital watch that has gained a cult-like following. We love this blacked-out version with subtle pink marks above the indices. Price: A$279.

G-SHOCK GMS5600-1D

G SHOCK GMS5600 1D

The GMS5600 is a downsized version of the iconic 5600 series. Sporting a stainless steel case and a softer resin band, this watch is the perfect do-anything watch: wear it to the office, the bar or on the sports field. Price: A$389.

G-SHOCK GMWB5000GD-9D

G SHOCK GMWB5000GD 9D

The GMW-B5000 Series goes beast mode, referencing the original DW-5000C but giving it a full metal treatment in gold DLC. It comes with a range of features including a film solar cell with Tough-Solar technology, Bluetooth connectivity, LED backlighting and 200 metres of water resistance. Price: A$1,149.

Discover our entire Casio and G-Shock range at the Time+Tide online shop, or at the Time+Tide Discovery Studio at 1/178 Collins St, Melbourne.
