WATCHES OF THE WEEK: Casio Watches – II FOR THE WISE, THE ACTIVE AND THE CONSCIOUS

WELCOME TO THE WEEKLONG ECSTASY

G-SHOCK

By now, to our firmest belief, you are done reading about the initial five we’d laid out on the platter in our last post; it’s time to advance towards the next 5 and we bet, even mechanical watch lovers will fall for these – some of the best quartz watches ever made – putting aside all other mediocre mechanical watches.

These G-Shocks share a certain wonderful obsessivity about them and that’s different from just them being the closest possible thing to indestructibility. A big part of these G-Shocks watches is their inherent, gadget-like charm and a multitude of things that you can do with them. We are confident that you’ll find them fun and admirable in their own little ways;

especially the G-Steel series. The raw appeal of metal combined with cutting edge Japanese watch technology and a whole lot of common, practical sense; they expand the essence of what G-Shock watches are really all about. We’re sure, these next 5 will hold the same appeal – if not greater – to appeal for you all!

VI. PRG-240-1DR: The PROTREK is a watch that never stops evolving. This model embodies one of the very best in functional beauty; its rugged, brutal looks are an advantage. Despite its multitude of functions, it’s surprisingly easy to operate upon. Modern technology shouldn’t be complex, Casio, too; believes in that.

The rotary bezel holds to this principle; the special shape facilitates an easy operation, even with gloves on. Large letterings are very prominent to vision.

Dedicated buttons for all the major functions remove need for multi-step procedures for essential readings, especially when time is short and surroundings are at best, difficult. The slanted, diamond patterned button-tops offer excellent slip resistance. They are easy to press yet firm enough to stop any accidental start/stop of any function; besides, the case design offers additional protection from the same. The TOUGH SOLAR movement ensures you have plenty of power for continuous use of functions. It’s socially wearable at every place not restricted by formal dressing codes.

VII. GST-S310-1ADR: G-SHOCK’s invincibility to all known harsh impacts is consistently getting better, setting newer standards at regular intervals in the fields of timekeeping and toughness. It expands the G-STEEL concept further. The advanced, function-packed GST-S310 is suitable both for the urban jungle and in the wilds.

The stainless steel bezel adds a tough competition to the upper category of mid-sized divers and field watches. This G-Steel is by and large more suitable for broader/wider wrists than thick, fat, rounded ones. That’s simply because it’s lean.

VIII. AQ-S810W-1AVDF: This is a watch that puts the Sport/Street style combination back into track. watches are straddling quite a tightrope. On the one hand, they have to be very precise and offer many different time-tracking options. On the other, they have to offer all these different features within a package that can withstand a wide variety of stresses, pressures, moisture levels, and dirt. Also, they have to look, well, sporty. Didn’t I say sport combination watches have a tough game plan to follow? Well, lesser brands would probably do a half-baked job due to the many requirements of a proper sport combination watch. But this is Casio we’re talking about so you can be sure this established Japanese digital watchmaker’s rendition of the sport combination watch formula will turn at least a few heads.

X. MSG-S200DG-4A: An octagonal bezel, a Solar movement and Bluetooth connectivity sets this Baby-G apart from other women’s watches, which are either casual or formal/ornamental but seldom in a combination of sports and formal.

Made with the active and sophisticated, modern women; its compact, metal construction contribute generously to sharp feel of its design.

The feminine pink gold goes great with a wide variety of styles while its new structure makes it smaller and thinner, appropriate for social, work and leisure-time use. The Tough Solar movement generates electricity not just from sunlight but from any bright light; brighter it is, faster the watch will charge. The LED illumination facilitates easy reading in the dark.

The Casio Mudman is well built, feature rich and whole heartedly deserves the wrist of someone not afraid to face the bumps and knocks of high-risk outdoor adventures.
