CASIO G-Shock is not closely associated with motorsports and aviation, but here it is, the CASIO G-Shock GRAVITYMASTER GWRB1000-1A1 Watch, a timepiece with materials inspired by motorsports and designed with aviation professionals in mind. CASIO did not make the association (with aviation) out of thin air. This beautiful timepiece sports an all-new carbon monocoque structure – a structural system closely associated with aircraft and automobile construction (which is essentially an exoskeleton of sort), and rust resistant titanium parts which includes a glove-friendly, all-new button structure comprising of four large titanium buttons.
It further boasts G-Shocks’ Triple G Resist that CASIO said helps to guard against three main types of gravitational acceleration: shock, centrifugal force and vibration. It sure sounds like CASIO G-Shock GRAVITYMASTER GWRB1000-1A1 Watch is not only a watch suitable for acrobatic and fighter pilots; I think it may be just as good for race car drivers too, particularly Formula 1 race car drivers. The carbon monocoque makes the watch lightweight while still offering the absolute toughness G-Shock watches are known for. The carbon monocoque body is complemented by a laminated carbon bezel, carbon fiber insert band and scratch resistant sapphire glass.
Plus, it has Bluetooth technology that, when connected to G-Shock Connected smartphone app, help keep accurate time by adjusting for daylight saving time and changes in time zone.
Other features include tough solar technology, atomic timekeeping, full auto double LED lights that automatically illuminate in low-light conditions, and the usual suite of G-Shock technology like the obvious shock resistance, 200 meters (20 ATM or 660 feet) water resistance, World Time (39 timezone/27 cities), 1/100th second stopwatch, countdown timer, daily alarm and full auto calendar.
CASIO G-Shock GRAVITYMASTER GWRB1000-1A1 Watch will hit the shelves starting April 2019, priced at $800 a pop. You will be able to find it at select jewelers, G-Shock Soho Store, as well as on gshock.com.
