Technology race is always beautiful. Without it, we would never have known to all those amazing inventions that make our lives easier. That competition designed to find out who is faster, higher, stronger, allowed man to explore the planet Earth and go beyond its limits. Wristwatches may seem a trifle on the background of the great discoveries, but in fact, it is no less important achievement. Japanese watches Casio G-Shock GPW-1000 is not only ahead of the models made by other companies, but also to remind us of what a watch worthy of being in the same row with the best inventions of mankind.
Late autumn is especially nice to remember the summer heat – it was in July of this year, in 2014 the G-Shock company has announced a radically new design, quartz wrist watches for men GPW-1000. Today, when the approach of winter literally felt in the air, we’re talking about these models.
The innovation of this watch is a special GPS-transmitter, not only receives the signal from the satellite, but also the interaction with the module settings timezones MULTI BAND 6. Currently Watches G-Shock GPW-1000 is the only model in the world with similar technological properties. This is – a double benefit. Why?
Because the satellite can not transmit GPS signal to the clock when the owner of the building – the creation of many buildings (such as airport terminals), concrete and metal are not spared, so much so that the GPS-signal just does not reach the device – the addressee. Here comes into play module settings timezones MULTI BAND 6, makes life easier for the owner watches G-Shock GPW-1000 – watch yourself and will process the configuration of a new location, even within the walls of the massive building. And nothing should be done manually. A high-tech GPS-transmitter clock automatically sets the time at any point of the globe, once you leave the buildings, how – some way impede GPS signal reception.
These impressive technological features require an appropriate mechanism. Name it CASIO TOUGH MOVEMENT. Let quartz, yet elegant caliber! This mechanism is protected from harmful influences (vibrations, electromagnetic radiation) so that the hours of other companies can only envy. Such a mechanism is needed just a reliable source of energy – the best among other previously installed in the Japanese wrist watches G-Shock GPW-1000. You may not have heard about the technology Casio Tough Solar, to charge the battery every hour “meeting” of the dial, and any source of light? If not, then it’s time to fix it. Thanks To Solar G-Shock GPW-1000 Watch can operate more than six months without recharging in the dark (even with frequent use of bright fluorescent light), when the function of conservation of energy and even more – as much as 18 months.
The small dial at the 8 hour mark allotted under the function of world time. Calendar located on the right side of the dial – in the column indicates the reduced foreign words weekday calendar aperture below remind today’s date. Service, of course, present.
However, not only the technological equipment of the hero of this article is worthy of attention. Indicators of impact models G-Shock GPW-1000 from the company Casio are at the highest level: the case is almost as thick as 19 mm (18.8 to be exact) and weighing 126 grams, “cast” of the polymer and is made to high standards of technology «TRIPLE G RESIST », which provides protection against the effects of gravity, mechanical damage, excessive vibration. Bezel resistant to abrasion due to fiber DLC («Diamond-like-carbon» – «carbon with diamond properties”) coating. The bezel of this watch is not terrible impact of electricity and chemicals. Bracelet models reinforced carbon inserts for greater reliability.
Not to forget about the application «Smart Access», protects G-Shock GPW-1000 from problems when using multiple functions. Let us explain: watches equipped with electronic crown. That is, the crown is integrated touch button with a magnetic sensor that allows intuitive set of arrow heads turning. By clicking on the crown, you can switch between functions. Rich functionality – competent management!
The company Casio knows how to surprise. Issue watches G-Shock GPW-1000 was a victory in the harsh conditions, when many manufacturers are trying to create something – something unique. But it turns out it’s just really hard working!
