The Japanese watchmaking brand has presented its latest concept watch packed with features which will be very useful to all those who plan on facing the rough seas. Gulfmaster GWN 1000, the new watch from the famed tough G-Shock collection possesses a multitude of functions which are found on other models of the series. Among them there is a triple sensor technology with a compass and measurements for temperature and altitude, as well as time-adjustment radio signals that provide top-notch precision and tough solar technology. However, Gulfmaster GWN 1000 is unique since it premiers a new function – weather prediction. The novel feature presented in a model is its warning system that measures sudden shifts in pressure and warns its wearer about any potential upcoming storms or similar drastic events, which is highly useful for seafarers. The list of naval-friendly supported traits also includes a tide graph that shows tide levels.
Set of Seafaring-Friendly Features plus Host of Usual Ones
New Casio Gulfmaster GWN 100 combines digital and analog display for its pressure shifts indication (and others as well). While the exact pressure is displayed in digital format, the central hand serves as an added telltale that shows the same thing in a slightly different manner which is more visual and therefore easier to grasp. The hand points to an adequate number on the bezel to show sudden drops and spikes in pressure which are certain precursors of weather shifts. In order for it not to be overlooked by the wearer who is bound to be occupied while traveling the seas, the watch likewise has an alarm in case of sudden pressure shits. Naturally, its compass feature is also very useful, especially considering the purpose of the timepiece. It likewise uses analog-digital indication. Once the function is activated, the seconds hand points to the north while the watch’s LCD display tells the angle of movement. Other important characteristics that can facilitate naval voyages are the watch’s temperature display and its tide graph display for specified place and time.
The watch also includes a moon phase indication, as well as a host of functions that are found in almost all of the Casio watches. These include: world time for 29 cities, 1/100th of a second stopwatch (with additional elapsed, split, 1st and 2nd place times), a countdown timer, five independent daily alarms, a full auto calendar, 12/24 hour formats, end-of-life battery warning and LED backlight with afterglow. It also provides two features that mean a lot in terms of making a quartz watch such as this one a bit more special. These are an automatic radio reception of signals with information about the exact time (provided by atomic watches which make the watch immensely accurate), as well as the presence of a solar-powered battery which can last very long (one month shy of two years, providing that it is fully charged and that the power saving function is activated). Being a G-Shock, new Gulfmaster GW 1000 also includes an extreme shock resistance, while its waterproofness can cope with pressures up to 200 meters.
Four Color Combinations for Bezels and Attachments
The newcomer by Casio is placed inside a round case with the diameter of 44.9 mm and the height of 16 mm (or 16.2 mm, depending on the variation). It comes with a new type of more flexible poly-urethane band which is distinguished by its higher resilience and more comfortable wear. The weight of the watch is exactly 101 grams.
Casio G-Shock Gulfmaster GWN 1000 timekeeper has a black face, but there will be four different options when it comes to the colors of the bezel and the bracelet.
