About G-SHOCK 

CASIO’s shock-resistant G-SHOCK watch is synonymous with toughness, born from the developer Mr. Ibe’s dream of ‘creating a watch that never breaks’. Over 200 handmade samples were created and tested to destruction until finally in 1983 the first, now iconic G-SHOCK hit the streets of Japan and began to establish itself as ‘the toughest watch of all time’. Each watch encompasses the 7 elements; electric shock resistance, gravity resistance, low temperature resistance, vibration resistance, water resistance, shock resistance and toughness. The watch is packed with Casio innovations and technologies to prevent it from suffering direct shock; this includes internal components protected with urethane and suspended timekeeping modules inside the watch structure. Since its launch, G-SHOCK has continued to evolve, continuing to support on Mr. Ibe’s mantra “never, never give up.” www.gshock.com/home

Seiko USA, Lorem Ipsum, stevie award, 360 MAGAZINE

Lorem Ipsum Receives Gold Stevie® Award for Seiko USA Campaign

Multi-disciplinary experiential design firm, Lorem Ipsum is pleased to announce that its work for Seiko USA has received a Gold Stevie® Award from the American Business Awards® in the Website category under “Consumer Products-Non-Durables.”

The award was presented on Tuesday, June 11 during the 17th Annual American Business Awards banquet in New York City. The American Business Awards feature a wide selection of categories to recognize the achievements of creative professionals working in web development, corporate communications, video production, app development, investor relations and live events.

Lorem Ipsum took on the challenge of taking Japanese manufacturer of watches, Seiko USA’s website which was absent of sales or software integration capabilities, and built a sales-drivensite using Shopify’s platform. As storytellers in a digital world, Lorem Ipsum’s goal in both the user experience and overall design was to ensure the product remained the ultimate focus while keeping with the brand’s aesthetic and transforming Seiko enthusiasts into paying customers. Their approach not only provided significant technical enhancements but also told the brand story with new and improved user experiences across all devices. Lorem Ipsum’s team of programmers created the Seiko Sync app, expanding the native Shopify features to create aunique consumer experience. For example, customizable filters allow users the option to searchfor products by technology, dial color, size and various other important consumer factors.

Their developers also created custom software, such as Shop Social, that enables enhanced capabilities beyond Shopify’s existing offerings, including a unique Instagram plug-in that integrated directly with the brand’s channel allowing for a continuous and curated feed of imagery.

By moving away from traditional marketing approaches and instead, utilizing social media and strategic retargeting tactics, Lorem Ipsum was able to drive traffic to Seiko’s U.S. page and increase sell-through. The customer management process was also customized while working closely with Seiko’s IT and fulfillment teams to create a cohesive system of applications and notifications to give Seikobetter sales and product functionality insights; ultimately, allowing Seiko to better understand end-users’ likes and dislikes in order to create content accordingly to engage users and improvethe overall purchase process.

“It is an honor to be recognized for our contribution,” says Abigail Honor, Partner at Lorem Ipsum. “Working with Seiko to launch their first U.S. e-commerce storefront was a big responsibility and our multi-disciplinary team rose to the challenge. Our focus was to create a straightforward user experience in which we created branded content, worked with influencerson unique campaigns and implemented strategic advertising to make the Seiko websitecompetitive. We are proud not only of the seamless launch but of the constant evolution of thesite throughout the year.”

Lorem Ipsum provided the creative assets fromvideo to lifestyle photography for all of Seiko’s campaigns throughout the year, most notably for their national campaigns-Prospex StreetSeries and Coutura Car, and designed customized landing pages, e-mail campaigns, and third-party banners that provided a visual narrative of product and lifestyle images.The team’s creative and marketing strategies led to the fastest sellout of a single Seiko product in company history with the launch of the cult classic Alpinist timepiece. “The nominations submitted to the 2019 American Business Awards were outstanding,” said Michael Gallagher, president and founder of the Stevie Awards. “They illustrate the continued vibrancy of innovation and high level of achievement across the American economic landscape.” More than 3,800 nominations from organizations of all sizes and industries were submitted for consideration in a wide range of categories. More than 250 professionals worldwide participated in the judging process to select this year’s Stevie Award winners.

How to choose a luxury watch for a man

Luxury watches for men not only represent a sign of status, but it also shows style, personality and character. If you are thinking of getting it, with this article, we will help you review the details you should take into account when choosing it:

Determine your style:

One aspect to consider is to make sure that the watch fit your style. Whether it is classic, modern, or sporty, it is important to feel comfortable and proud while wearing it. It is important not to confuse style with categories because the first defines essence and the second marks characteristics that will make it adapt to certain situations or contexts and which will be determined by your preferences, from the sporty Rolex Submariner to Longines Legend Diver to those who like the classic style .

Choose a brand:

Every luxury watch brand, most of them from Switzerland, is characterized by a very personal style. However, in the catalog they offer different categories of those who adapt as a general rule with the context or activity in which you will use and enjoy it, because the characteristics of the hours to go to work will be very different from those in more sporty models for playing golf or styles that more casual to go with friends.

Choose material:

In connection with the above, when choosing a watch material, consider the use you want to give. If for example you are looking for a watch to do sea activities, we recommend you go to a more powerful luxury watch, made of material that is very resistant like steel and which has a thicker ball that better withstand any blows that may occur during the development of its activities, such as which you can find on the TAG Heuer watch, which installs a high-strength sapphire ball on their watch. Conversely, if you are looking for a watch to go to work, you can choose a smoother watch, made of more elegant material like a fancy gold watch with leather strap.

Clock operation: Movement.

The movement of the watch can be mechanical, in this case it is divided into automatic and manual, and movement based on quartz. The latter are the most extensive because they are the most appropriate and easiest to maintain and as a rule they tend to be more economical.

How many watches do I have?

Frequently asked questions are usually the number of watches a man must have in his collection to face his days. The answer depends on many aspects because there is no number of watches that any man must have in the closet, because this must adapt to your various life situations, however, there must always be one luxury watch that becomes an iconic part of your collection.

Final tips for choosing an exclusive watch properly

When choosing your luxury watch you must try it and feel comfortable with it, see that it merges with your taste, style and needs, something that in a few seconds you will appreciate as many jewelers say:

“The watch chooses you and not you.”

We hope that the indications we have given you help you choose that watch you have been looking for for so long.

360 Magazine × G-Shock

By Bob Cal

Partnering with the Nassau Fire Department, G-Shock hosted an exclusive ‘Train Like a Firefighter’ event to unveil their latest product—the Mudmaster. 360 Magazine, along with a dozen other editors and photographers, attended this one-day class to gain first-hand experience with G-Shock’s high performance watch.

Arriving at G-Shock’s Soho location in Manhattan, the media personnel were transported to the Nassau County Fire Department in Long Island—and boy were they in for an adrenaline rush! Each attendee was gifted a G-Shock Mudmaster watch to test during this day of high intensity classes instructed by certified firefighting teachers. The students for the day were clad head to toe in heavy, authentic fire fighting gear, doing everything from traversing a pitch black building, busting out of a trapped room and sliding down the rope of a second floor window– all while wearing their G-Shock Mudmaster watch. The media guests were both physically and mentally tested.

Living up to its name, the mud resistant Mudmaster watch was like a diamond through every firefighting drill. Never did it scratch or catch dirt through contact with debris. Its light weight maximizes comfort and ease without comprising durability and longevity. The product’s other features include a digital compass, LED lights and water resistance. It is an all around visually elegant performance accessory.
