CASIO G-SHOCK REVEALS MASTER OF G FROGMAN TIMEPIECE FOR THE SUMMER
Timepiece Integrates Utility, Substance, and Style for Diving

Dover, NJ, June 29, 2016 - Casio G-SHOCK announces the release of the new MASTER of G Frogman GWFD1000B-1, designed to withstand the toughest of underwater missions.

The amphibious G-SHOCK Frogman continues to evolve with its latest addition to the MASTER of G collection. The GWFD1000B-1 is designed with Triple Sensor technology featuring a new depth gauge, digital compass (with automatic horizontal correction), and thermometer in addition to a high-visibility, full Auto LED light and Dive Log. These advancements were developed after conducting special interviews with a professional rescue team of the Japan Coast Guard. The updates help divers grasp the environmental changes at deep sea levels and provide real-time measurement data.

In addition to G-Shock’s ethos of Absolute Toughness via its unique Shock Resistant structure, the Frogman delivers not only in advanced technologies but in style. This diver’s watch was designed in a stainless steel case and screw-lock case back with DLC Coating, sapphire crystal, and carbon fiber insert band. The large buttons are easy to operate even with gloves on. The watch is ISO 200M Water Resistant and in addition to the Frogman’s diving-specific qualities, the timepiece also takes advantage of the digital watch, which features World Time (31 Time Zones / 48 Cities + UTC), Time Stamp Function (date & time), 1/00th Second Stopwatch (100 Hr.), Countdown Timer (24 Hr.), 4 Daily Alarms & 1 Snooze, (12/24 Hr. Time Formats), all at a glance.

The Frogman timepiece - GWFD1000B-1 - will retail for $1,050 USD and will be available this July at the G-SHOCK NYC Soho, www.gshock.com, and select Macy’s and select jewelers.

About G-SHOCK
CASIO’s shock-resistant G-SHOCK watch is synonymous with toughness, born from the developer Mr. Ibe’s dream of ‘creating a watch that never breaks’. Over 200 handmade samples were created and tested to destruction until finally in 1983 the first, now iconic G-SHOCK hit the streets of Japan and began to establish itself as ‘the toughest watch of all time’. Each watch encompasses the 7 elements; electric shock resistance, gravity resistance, low temperature resistance, vibration resistance, water resistance, shock resistance and toughness. The watch is packed with Casio innovations and technologies to prevent it from suffering direct shock; this includes internal components protected with urethane and suspended timekeeping modules inside the watch structure. Since its launch, G-SHOCK has continued to evolve, continuing to support on Mr. Ibe’s mantra “never, never give up”. For more information, visit www.gshock.com.
