We will see two relatively different portions of the Casio G-Shock‘s product spectrum this month. First, its “the blast from the past” with the G-001 Series. A near identical replica of the original DW-001 from 1994, engineers at Casio added a substantial amount of upgrades to this “re-introduction model” 17 years later, including a 29 time zones – 48 cities world time function and an auto calendar up to the year 2099. Some features never need upgrade however, like G-Shock’s reliable resilient against impact and its water resistance capability up to 200 meters. Similar characteristics are also available in the G-8900 Series, but in a more familiar rugged appearance. One notable addition is the so-called “reverse LCD” display in providing visibility. All scheduled to launch in the coming weeks at Casio G-Shock retail points world wide.
