Casio America Inc. introduces the G-Shock G-Aviation (GW3000). An evolution to the company’s G-Aviation collection, the GW3000 provides a bigger case, at 52mm, with high contrast markings. Taking design cues from aircraft flight panel indicators, the new G-Aviation features a triple layered dial and frame display structure that gives the watch face a three-dimensional feel while increasing overall visibility, according to company officials.
With the needs of pilots in mind, the new G-Aviation is equipped with centrifugal force resistant functions. It will maintain its measurement capability even under the heaviest centrifugal conditions like those experienced while air racing at 370km/hour with 12G gravity, company officials promise. The watch also features self-charging, tough solar power & self–adjusting, multi-band 6 atomic timekeeping technology, tough movement and a quadruple hybrid case structure.
The multi-band 6 is a radio-control system built to receive time calibration signals from up to six transmission stations: two in Japan and one each in North America, the United Kingdom and Germany, plus a new station in China.
Additional features include large side buttons, shock resistance, 200M water resistance, Neo-Brite Luminous Hands and Markers, 29 City World Time + UTC, 1/100 Second Chronograph, and Daily Alarm.
Available with a resin band for $260 or stainless steel band for $350. For more information: GShock.com
