Casio to Release G-STEEL G-SHOCK Watches Combining Metal and Resin Materials for a Solid Look
Casio Computer Co., Ltd., announced today the release of new additions to the G-STEEL series of watches that feature a layer guard structure combining different materials. The GST-W300 and GST-S300watches are available in five models, all of which retain the dynamic metal finish of previous models, but in a more compact size for an even better feel on the wrist.
The new GST-S300 a feature the same powerful, multidimensional design of previous G-STEEL watches, highlighting the solid look of metal, in a downsized case that feels even better on the wrist and slips easily under a shirt or jacket sleeve.
The new watches also incorporate a shadow-dispersing solar panel with enhanced power-generating efficiency, which enabled Casio to offer a more colourful dial with larger index marks. Digital LCDs are positioned handsomely at three, six, and nine o’clock, displaying a variety of data such as date, function info, and cities. These features result in a face design with a brilliant outer metal finish and superb readability.
The watches are also equipped with a hand shift feature that temporarily moves the hands out of the way with just a touch of the button, as well as double LED lights to illuminate the dial and LCDs.
