First Look: World’s First Casio Concept StoreWritten by Alvin Wong
The Japanese electronics giant gets right into the thick of the action to please fanboys.
It does not boast a swanky address or far-out décor, but the world’s first Casio concept store looks like a rock solid draw. Opened on 30 June 2016 at Tampines Mall, the boutique in the eastern heartlands has quickly established itself as a go-to for the full-on Casio experience.
Customers can expect a well-stocked boutique loaded with a comprehensive range of products including Exilim compact digital cameras, and a complete spread of timepieces spanning G-Shocks to the Edifice and Protrek collections.
For those interested in latest wares, check out the newly arrived Sheen SHB-100 (top), Casio’s first ladies watch from the Global Time Sync range, and the new Edifice EQB-600D, a smartphone-linked world-timer that allows one to ascertain time in over 300 global cities via GPS satellite and radio wave time calibration signals.

Alvin promises not to be a douche when talking about watches. He may have scoured the Basel and Geneva watch fairs for the past 15 years, and played an instrumental role to the growth of Singapore's pioneering horological and men's lifestyle publications, but the intrepid scribe seeks to learn something new with each story he writes.
