Selena Gomez G-Shock

Selena Gomez wears a CASIO

Selena Gomez is a famous singer, actress, role model and one of the most inspiring celebrities I’ve seen perform live. Her style is a unique mix of sexy, sporty, chic and sweet. Her fighting spirit is as tough as the CASIO G-Shock Watch she wore in the song “Hands to Myself” and the elegant classy spirit is reflected in the Rolex Day-Date II Oyster 41mm.

Selena is inspired by the work she does as a UNICEF campaign she does to raise money for children and inspires everyone to be beautiful on the inside and the outside every day of their life.

Selena wears a Black G-Shock S Series Women’s watch

Selena Gomez wears a CASIO Black G-Shock S Series Women’s Resin Watch GMDS6900-1 in her third chart topping hit “Hands to Myself” from her second studio album Revival, where she comes out with a badass, gothic, sexy vibe wearing some sexy lingerie and smokey eyes. The whole ensemble represents the sporty, sexy and sensual side of Selena, and plays on playful and vivid imaginations. The song features Selena as a stalker to a famous Hollywood actor, enacting her desires and fantasies. In the music video, Selena breaks into the house after checking the watch, that contrasts beautifully with the lace that looks like a tattoo on her skin. Check out the video for yourself:

The watch complements and contrasts the sexy black lingerie by Giorgio Armani and adds to the finesse of Selena’s style in the music video.

We love the understated smouldering look that she sports in the video and the concept that she represents in the video resonates with every woman’s fantasies on celebrity crushes.

Why we like the G-Shock S Series Women’s watch

The watch is designed especially for a woman’s small wrists. It is not excessively bulky and fits easily onto my wrists. The watch comes with a 2-year warranty which I like. It holds up pretty well after all the rough treatment it has gone through with the clumsy handling that has happened often enough. The watch would be a good choice if you have a tendency to have an active lifestyle. I knocked it into a wall by mistake once, and not a scratch on it. It is embarrassing to admit but an analog watch takes too much time for me to read. This digital watch has a perfect size dial and display.

Summary

At first glance, the watch may look masculine, especially on pictures available on various websites. But we don’t think these do the watch justice as you can’t fully appreciate the beautiful glitter effect embedded into the black that pairs well with the silver buckle and makes it look feminine. This beauty is gorgeous on the outside and tough on the inside. Just like Selena Gomez.

What kind of watch did Chris Kyle wear?

Chris Kyle wore the Casio G-Shock Military Series. Chris Kyle was a U.S. Navy SEAL sniper with SEAL Group 3. He served 4 tours overseas for the United States and is currently the deadliest sniper in American history with at least 150 kills to his name.

About the Casio G-Shock Military Series

 The Casio G-Shock is a favorite in the military community for being a tough and durable watch loaded with many features a soldier, fireman, paramedic, or police officer might find useful.

The watches these days are digital in their complications, but analog in their time display. Casio claims the battery life is 2 years, and some even come equipped with Tough Solar chargers to automatically recharge.

G-Shock watches all include automatic atomic clock synchronization, and most will now automatically adjust to whatever timezone you’re located in using radio waves and local sources. The “G” in G-Shock stands for ‘Gravitational’ – the watch was designed in the early 80s to be able to withstand mechanical shock and heavy vibration.

As such, today’s G-Shock watch is water resistant to 20 BAR, and can withstand a rather high fall (at least 20 feet that we could find, possibly more with newer versions of the watch).

The best part about the G-Shock is that it is incredibly affordable. Brand new 2017 models can be had for around $100, but if you go back a few years you can get a durable, feature rich modern watch for less than Check on Amazon .

Where to buy a Casio G-Shock

Around 2011, several rappers, including Eminem, started wearing the watch and vaulted it into the mainstream consciousness. As such, you can find them in your mall or local jeweler. You can also find some at a pawn shop.
