G-Shock watches hardly need an introduction. Their appeal is obvious; they are one of the few products in the world that can call itself battle tested, and mean it literally. G-Shock watches haven’t adopted a rugged aesthetic as a marketing angle, they really have been, and continue to be used by deep sea divers, special forces soldiers, and astronauts.
Their unique look is a byproduct of being constructed to stand up to the punishing demands that these professions dole out to a watch, and still keep precise time.
The new GWFA1000RN8A Master of G FROGMAN is a full-analog solar timepiece in collaboration with the Royal Navy, the U.K. Navy. Inspired by Her Majesty’s Ship Queen Elizabeth Aircraft carrier, one of the largest ships of its kind, the GWFA1000RN8A features a light gray case and band resembling the hull of the ship, which is offset by the Royal Navy red, white and navy blue.
Paying homage to the long and proud history of the oldest of the three British fighting forces, the metal band ring is engraved with Royal Navy logo, while the back cover features the engraved iconic frog holding an anchor symbolic of previous FROGMAN G-SHOCKs. The premium carbon monocoque case, enables weight reduction and a high-level of waterproofing. The new GWFA1000 also features Bluetooth® connectivity through the G-SHOCK Connected App, which lets you access tide data settings for approximately 3,000 locations worldwide and enables users to review their diving log on their smartphones.
