G-shock adds two models to their G-Steel collection: the GST-W110 and the GST-W100
Today’s post is all about the new GST-W100 and GST-W110 watches from the G-Steel collection by G-Shock. Last year G-Shock fully innovated their collection by introducing the G-Steel collection. Everywhere you go, G-Shock is known for their super tough watches. Their watches are shock resistant, water resistant, they can handle free falls and any weather condition you can imagine. To give you a bit more information behind the technology, I will elaborate on this in the next paragraphs.
Concept & Birth
The G-Shock watches were developed with the goal of developing a watch that never breaks. Guided by a “Triple 10” development concept, the G-Shock design teams sought a watch with 10-meter free-fall endurance, 10-bar water resistance and a 10-year battery life. At a time when it was commonly believed that watches were breakable items, G-Shock’s development represented a challenge to common sense. The number of experimental prototypes built for endurance testing reached over 200.
Design & Structure
The case design of the G-Shock watches offers protection against free-fall shocks. A prominent bezel configuration was adopted to prevent the buttons and glass from contacting flat surfaces, thus protecting them from shocks when falling at any angle. This design concept stressing protection from shocks is basic to every G-Shock case design. The new G-Steel models are even more unique. They are supported with a new layer guard structure, which is a bezel consisting of multiple layers made of plastic and metal. The G-Steel’s layered guard structure boasts a double-layer bezel construction of stainless steel and resin or resin and fine resin which delivers the hard, sleek beauty of metal while retaining the impact absorption of resin. The GST-W100 and GST-W110 are available in three different color variations, all with the familiar power structure that we know of Casio G-SHOCK.
Sleek and polished, but infamously hard-wearing, stainless steel provides a scratch-resistant and protective casing, with a timeless metallic finish.
The new G-Steel watches have double LED-lighting. This is done to make sure that you can read every part of the watch, even when it’s fully dark. The battery of the watches are solar powered. They are charged with both sunlight as well as artificial light. The watches are fully charged within 30 minutes, which is super quick!
The G-Shock watches receive radio-signals all over the world, making sure that the time is a 100% correctly displayed in everywhere in the world. In this way, you never have to adjust the time manually. Neither do you ever have to worry that your time is not correctly displayed.
The features I mentioned above are just some of the features that G-Shock watches offer. To get a full picture of all of the functionalities, I recommend you to go here and find out everything you need to know!
Besides all of the super cool functionalities that G-Shock watches offer, the appearance is one of the most important parts of a watch. When wearing a watch, you want it to look fashionable and you want it to really complement your outfit. In my opinion the G-shock G-Steel collection is the best collection G-Shock has offered so far. They have made great improvements design wise with this collection. They offer multiple color combinations and I believe anyone can find a watch they really like in this collection. I personally chose the GST210D-1A model, but I really like almost any model from this collection. You can get a full overview of all of the models from the G-Steel collection here.
