CASIO, founded in Tokyo in 1946, was already a world leader in the field of pocket calculators in the early 1970s, when one of the four brothers, Toshio Kashio, utilised his knowledge of calculator development and invented the world’s first digital watch with an automatic calendar, the CASIOTRON: The world’s first digital watch with an automatic calendar, the CASIOTRON. This was an absolute world first in 1974 and reflected the company’s vision: to make a creative contribution with innovative products. In the decades that followed, countless watch innovations and technological novelties were added to the range.
