ntroducing a new special model based on the GPS hybrid radio-controlled solar-powered G-SHOCK GRAVITYMASTER Series GPW-1000 model that keeps timekeeping accurate by receipt of both location based GPS signals and one of six time calibration signals around the globe.
In addition to a GPS hybrid radio-controlled solar-powered system, this watch also features a new lightweight, highly durable 64 titanium bezel for outstanding toughness.
Difficult-to-mold 64 titanium is DLC processed for better wear resistance.Light weight, ion-plated titanium is used in the city code ring, back cover, band ring, and buckle. Design-wise, bold basic black coloring is accented by large white easy-to-read hour markers and white hour, minute and second hands. The result is a bold and dignified look.
• Lightweight, highly durable 64 titanium bezel (6% aluminum, 4% vanadium alloy)
• GPS hybrid radio-controlled, solar-powered: The watch is able to receive any one of six different time calibration signals around the globe, as well as GPS time and position information to ensure accurate timekeeping no matter where you happen to be. A Tough Solar system helps to keep the battery charged for uninterrupted operation.
• TRIPLE G RESIST withstands impact, centrifugal force, and vibration.
• Smart Access
• Dual Dial World Time (Simultaneous indication of current times in two different locations.)
• Auto hand position correction
• Super Illuminator, high-brightness LED light
Introducing the GRAVITYMASTER, GPW1000 – The World’s First GPS ATOMIC SOLAR HYBRID with CASIO-original GPS Hybrid radio-controlled technology built inside a TRIPLE G Shock Resistant structure. This unique technology combines Multi-band 6 capability to receive any one of six time calibration signals around the globe with a receiver that acquires position and time information from GPS satellites. When GPS information is acquired the watch determines your current time zone and judges whether or not your location requires the use of summer time, and updates watch settings accordingly. The combination of these two capabilities and underlying tough structure creates a hybrid timepiece designed and engineered to ensure that you are on time all the time, no matter where you happen to be. Absolute Toughness with Universal Accuracy.
