I must admit although i like nice watches BUT (and its a big But) when i head out into the wild (or working in places like Iraq or Rwanda) I generally take along a G-Shock watch. This one does a lot in a simple package.
Casio announced a brand new high-end G-Shock model at Baselworld 2015, the GWG-1000 Mudmaster. This new model combines features of the Mudman and Rangeman with an analog/digital hybrid display. It has a case design that looks like a cross between an aviation G-Shock and the Rangeman, giving it a tough and tactical appearance. Model numbers are GWG-1000-1A (black), GWG-1000-1A3 (black with olive band), and GWG-1000-1A9 (black with yellow band).
With a ton of truly impressive G-Shock’s hitting the market this year, one of the most interesting, durable and technologically advanced is the new Gravity Defier GWA1100-1A2. I’ve had my eyes on this piece since we 1st saw it at the Basel Fair earlier this year. After much anticipation the new G-Shock Aviation GWA1100’s are finally in stock, and look way more impressive than I remember. I’m proud to say, I just picked this piece up for my personal collection, and want to explain why this was my “must have” G.
G-Shock’s are known for their durability and being virtually bullet proof. This new Aviation model goes above and beyond the limits of not only other watches, but also pretty much any other G-Shock on the market today. This model is Triple G Resist which means it is resistant to shock , centrifugal force, and vibration. Utilizing the new Alpha…
