Casio introduced many new watch styles at Baselworld this year. I like the new X-Large G watch the best. It features a new analog and digital dial, and a stopwatch function that can record with 1/1000th second precision, which makes this a great watch to time sporting events. Like the majority of G-Shocks, it is big, yet very comfortable.

The case is sleeker than the classic G-Shocks, that have an area which protrudes out on both sides of the case. This shape is cleaner and more comfortable. And the buttons are easier to activate in comparison to a classic G-Shock. The analog readout is a nice touch too, and really defines this new style. Available in all black, white or yellow.

Functions of the watch include: Hourly Time Signal, Auto-Calendar (pre-programmed until the year 2099), Daily Alarm 4 daily and 1 snooze alarm

Module 5081, Approx. Battery Life 2 years, Battery CR1220, Countdown Timer, Backlight Auto LED light with afterglow, Water Resistant up to 200M, 12/24-Hour Formats, Accuracy +/- 15 seconds per month, Magnetic Resistant, World Time 29 times zones (48 cities + UTC), Stopwatch 1/1000 Second.
