A watch if you spend all the time outdoors (and don’t want to scratch your rolex/omega/TAG)


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.

gwg-1000-1a3_mudmaster_angle_

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).

Let the pictures do the talking

box

nice clean display

Initial thoughts are really good – things I love so far

1.Dual time shows current time as well as does stopwatch and timer.

2.Clean display.

3.Watch face drains water – like the frogman but unlike the 5600 series.

4.Great buttons – not stiff like the Mudman and better quality than the 5600 series.

5. Atomic Timekeeping

6. Solar Powered

Casio (square) digital atomic wave watches


green atomic

I love the square watches that G-shock make particularly the GWm5600BC – but they do others which are equally fantastic …

 

The green GWM5610 – get it here

Atomic Multi-band self-adjusting

Receives time calibration signals and corrects the time automatically. Casio watches with Wave Ceptor technology receive radio waves carrying American Standard Time data transmitted from Fort Collins, Colorado. It then corrects the time automatically for one of four U.S. cities you pre-select depending on your time zone and displays the time.

  • Correct time reception, self adjusting.
  • Self-adjusts to time zone differences, wherever you go from coast to coast! * after home time is set

Compatibility with all six transmission stations worldwide:
Multi Band 6 is the worlds first radio-controlled system built to receive time calibration signals from six transmission stations: two in Japan and one each in North America, the United Kingdom and Germany, plus the new station in China.

  • Miniaturized, shock-resistant, high-sensitivity amorphous antenna.
  • Large-capacity, power-saving LSI controlling 6-station radio wave reception.

At A Glance

G-Aviation: Introducing the new large case Aviation concept watch with a 1/100-second chronograph designed to keep accurate time even under the stresses of high G forces that occur during air racing. 

Its large 32mm face is carefully laid out to provide the look of an aircraft instrument panel and is constructed of two layers creating a dramatic 3-D effect for the sub-dials.

Large metal side buttons provide easy operation, but at the same time, are enclosed by guards that protect against accidental operation and damage.

For added durability, its band is fastened on both sides with stainless steel screws for plenty of durability.
