Casio Singapore has announced the release of the new G-SHOCK G-STEEL series, the latest addition to its range of premium G-SHOCK timepieces. The bold and sleek G-STEEL is designed to be nearly indestructible, encased in a ‘Layered Guard Structure’ which reinforces the watch with a double layered bezel using a combination of resin and metal for superb shock resistance and durability.
Layered Guard Structure
The bezel of the G-STEEL GST-S110 is constructed with a layer of metal over a shock absorbent layer of resin. Each layer is designed with contrasting colours to give a three-dimensional look, delivering the hard beauty of metal while retaining the impact resistance of resin. Meanwhile, the GST-S100 offers yet another level of resistance, with the shock-absorbent resin in an upper layer set in a lower layer of fine resin.
Excellent Functionality and Readability
Not only does the G-STEEL series offer both digital and analog time displays, it is also built with Casio’s original Hand Concealment Function where users can press a button to temporarily move the watch hands out of the way, to have an unblocked view of the LCD display.
Powered by Tough Solar Technology, the G-STEEL utilizes two LED light sources, one at the six o’clock position and another as the LCD backlight, to illuminate the watch face while still prolonging its battery life.
Price and Availability
The G-SHOCK G-STEEL GST-S110 and GST-S100 are each available in Singapore, at Casio G-
FACTORY stores in Takashimaya, Bugis Junction, Vivo City, Tampines 1, Plaza Singapura, JEM and NEX, and each come in three different colour variations, providing a choice of different looks with the same tough construction.
