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.
Based on the AW500, G-SHOCK's first analog-digital combination timepiece that was released in 1989, the new full-metal AWM500D-1A employs hard stainless steel material for its bezel and band. Other features include screw-in backs and three-dimensional hour markers. Function wise, MULTIBAND 6 supports automatic time setting adjustment based on one of six time calibration signals around the globe for accurate timekeeping no matter where your travels take you. Other functions include Tough Solar in combination with CASIO original power-saving technology that delivers a stable supply of power, high-brightness Full Auto LED illumination, World Time, and more.
