Casio G-SHOCK unveils two all-new G-STEEL timepieces to its G-SHOCK Carbon series. Joining G-SHOCK’s lineup of refined men’s G-STEEL timepieces, the models come with Carbon Core Guard Structures and arrive almost 2.0mm thinner than its predecessors, providing elevated toughness in a lightweight case. The models also showcase a sleek and stylish look, with silver watch faces offered in a solid stainless steel band (GSTB200D-1A) and all-black polyurethane band (GSTB200-1A).
Combining both style and functionality, the latest timepieces are perfect for the man on-the-go who needs a reliable piece of gear. Carbon materials reduce case size, while the timepieces showcase a larger face in a more compact form. The new G-STEEL Carbon timepieces also include fine stainless-steel bezel and buttons and a thin case back to provide a high-end look with a comfortable feel.
In addition, the timepieces arrive with other topline features including Bluetooth® connectivity to pair with smartphones via the G-SHOCK Connected App. Other features include solar-powered charging capabilities, a hand retract function, and full auto double LEDs light for maximum visibility at night.
The watches also come equipped with G-SHOCK technology such as:
- 200M water resistance
- Shock resistance
- World time
- 1/1000th Sec. Stopwatch and countdown timer
- 5 alarms
- Full auto calendar
The GSTB200D-1A will retail for $350 and the GSTB200-1A will retail for $280, both will be available for purchase starting this June at select jewelers, the G-SHOCK Soho Store and gshock.com.
CASIO’s shock-resistant G-SHOCK watch is synonymous with toughness, born from the developer Mr. Ibe’s dream of ‘creating a watch that never breaks’. Over 200 handmade samples were created and tested to destruction until finally in 1983 the first, now iconic G-SHOCK hit the streets of Japan and began to establish itself as ‘the toughest watch of all time’. Each watch encompasses the 7 elements; electric shock resistance, gravity resistance, low temperature resistance, vibration resistance, water resistance, shock resistance and toughness. The watch is packed with Casio innovations and technologies to prevent it from suffering direct shock; this includes internal components protected with urethane and suspended timekeeping modules inside the watch structure. Since its launch, G-SHOCK has continued to evolve, continuing to support on Mr. Ibe’s mantra “never, never give up. Source
