Casio G-SHOCK goes undercover with new camouflage range
When it comes to watches and interesting timepieces, there are many different models out there in the market for you to pick from. The thing is, which particular model would be the most suitable one for you? It really depends on a whole lot of factors, ranging from your budget to your personality as well as needs. One thing is for sure though, Casio, through the years, have always proved their G-SHOCK range of watches to be worthy of their calling, coming in a rugged form factor that is more than capable of handling their fair share of knocks, drops, and tumbles, and they continue to work. The Japanese company has recently unveiled a new collection of entirely modern watches that will feature an all-over coating of a classic tiger and woodland camouflage prints in order to match the rough-and-ready nature of the watches. Do expect this camo series by G-SHOCK to be introduced to the masses in two waves later this spring.
The first watch of the two that will appear would be the XL GDX6900CM, where it sports a multi-angle tiger camo printed case, band and dial, and will arrive in two colorways: tan and grey. There is an emphasis on superior performance and unrivaled functionality, where the GDX6900CM sports a 10-year battery and auto Super Illuminator LED light for high visibility under low-light conditions. In addition, other functions include a trio of multi-function alarms, 1/100th stopwatch, countdown timer, 12/24-hour time formats and 48-city world time. You will also be able to enjoy G-SHOCK’s legendary 200M water and shock resistant structure with this bad boy, where it has also achieved a shock resistance passing military standard, MIL-STD-810G.
As for the other timepiece, it would be the GD120CM, as it comes in a new formidable case design that has a 7-year battery while wearing a woodland camouflage multi-angle print. It has a large case size of 51.2mm, and yet carries the entire range of functionality as the GDX6900CM, where you can choose from red, tan and grey shades. The camouflage GDX6900CM men’s watches will retail for $150 a pop, while the camouflage GD120CM men’s watches will retail for $130 from next month onward.
