From G-SHOCK, the brand that is constantly pushing the envelope of timekeeping toughness, come new G-STEEL model design variations with "layer guard structure" for outstanding shock resistance.
The bands of these models combine different materials for outstanding strength and wear resistance. The core of the band is resin, the outer surface is CORDURA® fabric, which is stronger than nylon, and the inner surface is Tough Leather, which is used for heavy-duty work wear. The GST-S130BC Series models come with a urethane bezel that is marked with a pattern that recalls the grip of an instrument or tool. This choice of bezel designs adds to the G-STEEL functional elegance and makes these models universally suitable for wear with a wide range of casual fashions.
Other features include solar powered operation and hand shift, as well as Neon Illuminator for the analog face and a white LED backlight for optimal readability.
A layer guard structure, and a new type of band and bezels greatly enhance design possibilities for these new G-STEEL models.
