As we previously reported, professional BMX rider Nigel Sylvester has recently become the ambassador of the Casio’s G-Shock series. That announcement is now supplemented with the first photos and a list of features of the new timepiece, created for the famous bike rider. The new Casio GD100NS-7 has all the resilience, typical for wristwatches from the G-Shock collection, as well as a fresh street look. Casio made sure that it is tough and cool enough to be worn by one of the best known BMX riders in the world.
The new GD100NS-7 has a white resin band and a white round case, which are sharply contrasted to its black digital dial. Nigel Sylvester’s signature is visible on the top of the dial, as well as on the case back. Apart from its resistance to shocks, this watch is also able to withstand water pressure to 200 meters. Besides, it possesses many useful functions, such as auto LED, World Time for 48 cities, five alarms, 1/100th of a second stopwatch, countdown timer and 12/24 hour formats. It is also worth noting that the Nigel Sylvester’s Signature G-Shock has a battery that lasts seven year.
“I feel this timepiece is a fantastic marriage between tough, durable and consistent but also elegant, sleek and classic. I am honored to have the opportunity to have worked on this G-Shock with Casio,” said the BMX rider.
The new Casio G-Shock GD100NS-7 will be available this August for $110.
