The Casio America and G-Shock U.S. websites get an upgrade and new URLs.
For a very long time, the G-Shock website for the United States was located at gshock.com. It was recently upgraded and is now located at gshock.casio.com/us, where gshock.com now redirects to. Like the G-Shock Japan site and other regional Casio sites, the U.S. site now utilizes the Casio ID registration system, but it is possible to order watches and check out as a guest. Casio America ships to the continental U.S., Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, and U.S. military addresses. It appears that Casio America may not be using Digital River to process orders now, as there is no longer any mention of it on the website, and the Terms of Sale page mentions that Casio uses Block to process payments.
It’s not known if the U.S. will see some of the benefits of the Casio ID system that other countries have, such as: lottery sales for limited edition models, exclusive accessory items for sale, and discounts for a customer’s birthday. We’re hoping that the adoption of the new system means that the U.S. has a chance of getting the My G-Shock DWE-5600 watch customization service someday, which is currently available in Japan only.
The Casio America website has also moved from casio.com to www.casio.com/us, which also includes G-Shock watches. The G-Shock “Sale” and Casio Outlet sections are still active at gshock.casio.com/us/sale and casio.com/us/outlet, respectively. There is also a Sale page for all Casio watches at casio.com/us/sale.
(Note: Visitors in other countries may be redirected to their regional Casio sites.)
