G-Shock recently released its all-new Gravitymaster (GWRB1000-1A1), a timepiece designed with aviation professionals in mind. Focusing on ease and function, the Gravitymaster comes with a revamped structure and rust-resistant titanium parts. A four-button structure features titanium buttons large enough for easy access even when wearing gloves. With a new carbon monocoque case, this latest model is incredibly tough but light at the same time.

As a high-end model for G-Shock, this timepiece comes with an array of premium features, including a laminated carbon bezel, a carbon fiber insert band, and scratch resistant sapphire glass which enhances readability. The watch also utilizes tough solar technology, atomic timekeeping, and features full auto double LEDs which automatically illuminate in dark conditions.

Bluetooth enabled, the timepiece connects to your mobile device via the G-Shock Connected app, keeping accurate time with the ability to adjust for daylight saving time and changes in time zone — precisely 39 time zones across 27 cities.

The Gravitymaster will be available some time in April, and will sell at $800 USD.

GRAVITYMASTER GWR-B1000 過酷な環境下で活動するパイロットのためのタフネスウオッチ「GRAVITYMASTER」から、航空機の機体に使用されるカーボンやチタンを使用し、さらなる強さを追求したNewモデルが登場。新たな耐衝撃構造として、外部衝撃からモジュールを保護する「カーボンコアガード構造」を開発。さらに、ケースと裏蓋を一体化させたカーボンモノコックケースを採用。これにより、ケース側面にガードパーツのないボタンガードレスデザインも実現しました。ベゼルやバンドにもカーボン素材を使用するとともに、プッシュボタンやボタンパイプを始め、随所にチタン素材を採用するなど、高機能素材の多用により、構造強化と軽量化、さらには防錆対策まで実現しています。 From GRAVITYMASTER, the tough watch designed for the severe weather environments faced by pilots, comes a new model that delivers an even higher level of toughness through the use of the same carbon and titanium materials found in modern aircrafts. A new shock resistant Carbon Core Guard structure integrates the case and back cover into a single carbon Monocoque unit that protects the module from external shock, and makes it possible to eliminate the carbon guards from the buttons on the sides of the case. The heavy use of highly functional materials, such as carbon material for the bezel and band, and the titanium alloy for buttons, button pipes, and components, results in a watch that is both structurally tough, lightweight, and resistant to rust.
