If you think that a wristwatch is simply for telling the time, then think again because your view is about to be blown to pieces. To call Casio G-Shock solar atomic watches simply “watches”, is like calling a Corvette ZR1 just “another car”.
Since they started in 1983, Casio have constantly strived to produce watches that will deal with the most extreme environments and abuse, without failing. They have certainly been successful in this as their reputation confirms. They are now producing the most technically advanced, durable, multi-functional watches with accurate timekeeping just a basic feature.
To list all the available features would not serve any real purpose here as there are so many and each watch caters for individual needs. But, there are some basic features, which set the G-Shock apart from other timepieces.
• virtual indestructibility – the defining feature of G Shock watches. Using a triple-protection design for the parts, module, and case, the G-SHOCK offers a radically new type of watch that offers the ultimate in shock resistance and is unaffected by the strongest impacts or shaking.
• accuracy and precision of timing, based on atomic technology. In the USA you receive time calibration signals transmitted from Fort Collins, Colorado that corrects the time automatically for one of four U.S. cities you pre-select, depending on your time zone. Additionally, there are 6 transmission stations worldwide which means that you are guaranteed the exact time, every second, wherever you are in the world. How smart is that?
• solar powered – Casio watches with solar technology, receive thermal and electrical energy that recharges the watch batteries through solar panels on the face of the watch, which means you never have to worry about changing batteries
In addition to a wide range of time related functions you can add a host of other features and functions such as
• water resistance
• stop watch
• thermometer display.
So, whatever your lifestyle, be it deep sea diver, mountaineer or arctic explorer, there is going to be a G-Shock watch to suit you.
But maybe you simply want a watch that is going to give you that “certain image”, an individual who knows what he wants and how to get it. Fine, every year Casio produces new models, so there is bound to be one that matches your individual persona. Furthermore, to satisfy the more discerning collectors of watches, there is always a continual procession of limited edition models to choose from.
They have also achieved another important aim, that of pricing their watches so as to suit the pockets of most folks.
So, if you are a dude who wants to make a statement, then why not consider what one of the Casio G-Shock Solar Atomic watches could do for your image. If nothing else, they just look so darn good, stealthy, sophisticated and the height of cool, without any hint of “wimp”, whatsoever.
