Today, Casio America Inc. is pleased to announce the newest addition to the legendary Master of G line – introducing the GWGB1000 Mudmaster flagship watch. Inspired by the adventurous spirit exemplified by driving across the wilderness in an “overlanding” style, the design incorporates the solid, rugged look of off-road vehicles and survival gear.
For the first time in the Master of G line, the GWGB1000 timepieces employ a newly developed guard structure that combines components made with different materials: forged stainless steel with diamond-like-carbon DLC coating for the bezel ring, upper and lower bezel guards and front button guard, and carbon fiber-reinforced resin for the left and right side button guards. This beautifully crafted line includes three analog-digital combination watches, GWGB1000-1A, GWGB1000-1A4, and GWGB1000-3A, that deliver outstanding durability and a comfortable fit with a robust exterior build thanks to their metal components. Each timepiece draws earthly elements into the design of the watch, and the bio-based resin watchbands are equipped with hues of grey, maroon, and forest green to channel the essence of the total toughness of the Master of G line.
Evoking the true essence of the legendary Master of G, land category, the MUDMASTER, GWGB1000 is designed to withstand the harshest conditions. The buttons are protected by cylindrical stainless-steel parts, and the button shafts are equipped with gasket fittings. The crown features a screw-lock construction to prevent contamination with mud and dust. Additionally, the sides and underside of the module incorporate αGEL™ to ensure vibration resistance. In design and functionality alike, this MUDMASTER is an embodiment of the G-SHOCK absolute toughness DNA as well as the practical utility needed to meet the demands of professional use.
The caseback is engraved with the Carbon Core Guard logo, amplifying the superior shock-resistant structure by leveraging the properties of carbon fiber (shock resistance, rigidity, and resistance to degradation). In addition, it also features Tough Solar (solar-powered, Multi-Band 6 radio-controlled timekeeping, Triple Sensor (Altimeter/Barometer, Thermometer, Compass), and Smartphone Link connectivity via the CASIO Watches app, When paired with a smartphone, the dedicated app offers easy operation of various features, including Location Indicator, which points the inset dial indicator hand in the direction of a location recorded on the map within the app, and Mission Log, which records activity history.
These timepieces come equipped with G-SHOCK technology including:
