• How to decode your G-Shock model number

    Ever wonder what the little hang tag that comes with your G-Shock means? Find out here. These tables attempt to decode what the full model number of a G-Shock means. This table has been built on the excellent work of the mysterious 'Buddha-G' along with trawling of the G-Shock Perfect Search. Any corrections or updates please comment or get in touch here.
