G-SHOCK GW3000B SOLAR WATCH | BY CASIO
The G-Shock GW3000B is an Aviation concept watch from Casio that is built to endure all the perils that heavy G forces throw upon a timepiece. Its 1/100-second chronograph also provides remarkable accuracy even during hard centrifugal forces. Their Tough Movement technology is also a great feature. It automatically corrects hand position making the watch even more shock resistant.
Just from the intro you can see that the GW3000B-1ACR is made for heavy-duty performance. High adrenaline moments can reduce time you can devote to reading information from your watch, but with orange luminous accents and 3D indexes you will learn information quickly and easily.
These multifunctional watches usually require frequent charging, but not this one. It features Tough Solar self-charging power system that eliminates the need for charging or changing batteries. Calibration is dealt with by Multi-Band 6 Atomic Timekeeping that receives information from 6 transmission stations that are placed all over the world.
Casio was the pioneer among companies that started moving away from making frail fashion statements that watches used to be. Their first G-SHOCK watch was made back in 1983 and since then they have continued in the same manner coming to the GW3000B-1ACR which is able to function as if nothing is happening while enduring amazing G forces that actually surpass 5G of F1 racing, or 12G of air racing. Should you find yourself in water, rest assured that it will be water resistant to depths of 660ft, meaning that rain poses absolutely no threat to this machine.
The G-Shock shows time, date, month; it features chronograph, dual-time-display, light, stop watch and world time; it charges itself gathering solar energy and, being radio controlled, eliminates any need to set the time. This is not some fancy short-term fashion piece. This is a proper watch packed with functions, including revolutionary radio control that will not give up even in very heavy conditions.
