FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
G-SHOCK IS PROUD TO ANNOUNCE THE G-AVIATION MULTI-MISSION ANA-DIGI
Advanced G-Shock Technology Meets Refined Style
DOVER, NJ, March 09, 2011 — Casio America Inc. seamlessly combines advanced timepiece technology with high performance functionality in the new G-Shock G-Aviation (GW3500B-1A). Preserving the G-Aviation legacy, the new chronograph possesses a cockpit inspired display and resistance to centrifugal forces like its predecessors. The GW3500B-1A also features a meticulously styled large case analog-digital face with distinctive black and yellow accents. “We are pleased to expand the G-Aviation collection,” said Shigenori Itoh, Vice President of Casio’s Timepiece Division. “The new GW3500B-1A brings together the absolute best of G-Shock. It features top of the line technology with sophisticated style.” Impeccably designed with toughness and technology as its primary attributes, the G-Aviation also features Self-Charging, Tough Solar Power & Self–Adjusting, Multi-Band 6 Atomic Timekeeping technology, Tough Movement and the hybrid case structure for the ultimate in accuracy, strength and performance. Self-Charging, Tough Solar Power - A tiny, solar panel combined with a large-capacity rechargeable battery enables a variety of energy-hungry functions to operate smoothly. The result is an impressive solar timepiece that assures reliable timekeeping and greatly reduces the need for battery change.
Self-Adjusting Multi-Band 6 Atomic Timekeeping - Compatible with all six transmission stations worldwide, Multi-Band 6 is the world’s first 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 the new station in China. Through a miniaturized, shock-resistant, highly sensitive amorphous antenna and large-capacity, power-saving LSI, stable operation of watch functions including 6-station radio wave reception is achieved. With Casio’s Atomic Timekeeping Technology, you will always have ultimate precision.
Tough Movement - Auto-Hand location technology automatically checks and adjusts hand positioning at fifty-five minutes after every hour. By employing an LED to detect hand-gear positioning versus internal time counter, the watch can detect any inconsistency and correct itself even if the hands are displaced by magnetic force or shock.
Additional G-Aviation features include large side buttons for increased operability, Shock Resistance, 200M Water Resistance, Full Auto LED Light, 48 City World Time + UTC, 1/100 Second Chronograph, Countdown Timer and 4 Daily Alarms and 1 Snooze Alarm for unmatched functionality.
Available with a resin band (GW3500B-1A) for $260, the G-Aviation will be available at Tourneau, Nordstrom, select Macy’s as well as discerning jewellers and fashion boutiques nationwide. For more information please visit www.gshock.com.
