Casio is a multinational company founded in 1946 in Japan, which manufactures electronic devices, and gained international notoriety for producing high-quality computers, cameras, audio equipment, PDAs, musical instruments and watches.
The Casio G-Shocks model we are going to present you here is designed to provide impeccable shock and water resistance along with Casio’s large area of sophisticated functionalities and high-technology which distinguished this brand throughout the years.
In matters of watch-design, Casio outstands for embedding the well known Japanese high-performance technology in digital interface-display or, as in the case of Casio G-Shock GS1200, in analogue appearance.
Compared with other G-Shock watches, this timepiece retains the notorious Casio functionality but also adds brand new features (29 times zones (27 cities), daily alarm, World Time, 1/20 second chronograph, 200 m water resistance, shock absorbing system etc.).
The case and bezel of Casio G-Shock GS1200 are made of an interesting combination of stainless steel and black rubber which confers the timepiece a masculine sporty stile, its dark hue dial is fitted with plaid pattern, also a large date display window highlighted by red accents is located at 3 o’clock position. As another design touché we can mention the stainless steel Neo-bright luminous hands and markers, which also feature contrasting red detailing. Asides from the attractive sporty looks and variety of functions, the watch is equipped with a very appealing solar power system capable of providing 6 months of power reserve, and radio-set compatible for 6 regions- among those are USA, London, Japan, Germany and China. The radio-set adjustments are made through control buttons positioned on the bezel.
No doubt an attractive timepiece, with its large variety of functions, Casio G-Shock GS1200 is a fascinating piece of high-tech equipment which tends to become more than a simple time-telling object and comes for a fairly accessible price of $400.00.
