So you think the current G-Shock watches ain’t tough enough? First of all, can I just say that I can’t imagine which trade you are in to have think G-Shock is not ’tough enough’. Secondly, fret not, because, Casio has just revealed a heavy duty line that pretty much up the ante of “regular G-Shock timepiece.”
Meet the new Casio G-Shock GA900 models. Not only they boast “supreme toughness”, but it has quite some style to boot. There are three models under this new heavy duty line, namely, GA900A-1A9, GA900C-1A4, and GA900E-1A3.
Casio said these watches are “perfect wear to sustain tough environments.” And you know Casio is dead serious about how tough the watches are if it has to emphasize “sustain tough environments.” That’s if the ultra chunky aesthetic hasn’t already convince you that this ain’t no the G-Shock you know.
In addition to the obvious analog-digital movement, the new GA900s also features a 10-sided bezel, knurled band connection and buttons, 200-meter (20 ATM, 660 feet), interchangeable band set (GA900E-1A3 only), Super Illuminator, hand retract function, world time, home city/world time swapping, 5 daily alarms, 1/100-second stopwatch, 1/10th second countdown timer, 12/24-hour formats, button operation tone on/off, and a whopping 7-year battery life.
Additionally, the GA900 series also include an all-black (GA900-1A), a navy (GA900-2A), and red (GA900-4A) colorway. The mono-color variety will sell for US$120 when it becomes available in September.
