The new G-SHOCK GWG-1000, dubbed the “MUD MASTER,” is constructed to resist mud and vibration so that it can be useful in a variety of harsh land environments. Over the years, G-SHOCK watches have added many innovative construction and design features to their outstanding shock resistance.
1 Features Triple G Resist reinforced construction to resist shocks, centrifugal force and vibrations
2 Equipped with a Triple Sensor for determining compass bearing, atmospheric pressure/altitude, and temperature.
The new G-SHOCK GWG-1000 was designed for deserts, mud, and other tough environments, and it is packed with features that deliver the toughness needed for use in harsh land environments. In addition to offering shock resistance, the watch is constructed for mud resistance and is ready to withstand working amid mud and rubble. The buttons are protected against the entry of mud, to ensure that essential functions are available at all times. The watch offers vibration resistance to withstand vibration from rough road drive or other heavy duty operations. These features give the watch toughness that the user can depend on in various challenging situations. The watch has a compass bearing readout to help users pinpoint the right direction and a barometer which is useful for predicting changes in weather. These readings enable the wearer to quickly assess natural conditions. The watch design features large hour and minute hands with large index marks and a front button, expressing the toughness of G-SHOCK watches while offering practical readability and enhanced functionality.
The ultimate tough watch - born from a developer's dream of "creating a watch that never breaks." Guided by a "Triple 10" development concept, the design teams sought a watch with 10-meter free-fall endurance, 10-bar water resistance and a 10-year battery life. At a time when it was commonly believed that watches were breakable items, the development represented a challenge to common sense. The number of experimental prototypes built for endurance testing reached over 200. And the structural development and parts improvement took approximately two years. After a long, hard process of trial and error, the brand was finally launched. A shock resistant structure that overturned conventional thinking about watches was realized thorough breakthrough thinking, including the ideas of a hollow- structured case, all-directional protective covering and the use of cushioning material to protect critical parts. These were the fruits of technological development that insisted on "toughness" and a revolution in watch design. Since its launched, it has continued to evolve for 30 long years, carrying on the toughness of spirit and uncompromising passion that led its developers to persist in their unshakable belief.
