G-Shock G-9000 Display Guide *for key functions only. For you to know how it works))

Timekeeping

Use the Timekeeping Mode to set and view the current time and date.
The times displayed in the Timekeeping Mode and World Time Mode are linked. Because of this, make sure you select a Home Time zone before you set the time and date.

Stopwatches

Your watch has two stopwatch modes: Stopwatch Mode (ST1) and Stopwatch Mode (ST2). Both stopwatch modes let you measure elapsed time, split times, and two finishes. The Stopwatch Mode (ST1) includes Auto-Start.
– A display range of the stopwatch is 999 hours, 59 minutes, 59.99 seconds.

Countdown Timer

The countdown timer can be set within a range of one minute to 24 hours. An alarm sounds when the countdown reaches zero. The countdown timer also has an auto-repeat feature and a progress beeper that signals the progress of the countdown.
– All of the operations in this section are performed in the Countdown Timer Mode, which you enter by pressing (C).

Alarms

You can set up to five independent multi-function alarms with hour, minutes, month and day. When an alarm is turned on, the alarm tone sounds when the alarm time is reached. One of the alarms is a snooze alarm, while the other four are one-time alarms.
You can also turn on an Hourly Time Signal that causes the watch to beep twice every hour on the hour.

What we like in G-9000 *comments by experts with 10 years experience in writing about Casio watches
— 200-meter water resistance
(good for swimming but not for deep diving)
— Mud Resistant (helps to ensure that nothing gets into the watch when down and dirty work takes you deep into the dirt and sludge)
— Dual Illuminator (Dual EL panels provide simultaneous illumination of the LCD panel and the dial for better readability when available lighting is dim)
— Low temperature resistant (stable operation of the watch is guaranteed even at a temperature of -20°C)

Official Casio Description. Introducing the dust-resistant, dirt-resistant MUDMAN with Dual Illuminator.
MUDMAN is designed and engineered with people like motor sport mechanics in mind. Its Mud Resist construction seals out everything from the oil of workshop to the sand of motorcycle rally. A Dual Illuminator backlight can be configured for 3-second or 5-second afterglow for easy reading in the dark.
Dual 1,000-hour stopwatches allow simultaneous measurement of two times, which means you can use one stopwatch to time a race and the other to determine how much time is being lost in pit stops. The back cover is engraved with the image of a mole, which represents the MUDMAN concept.

Enjoy Japanese Unique Features in G-9000!

*some images are about G-Shock 5000/5600 cases, but the technology, approaches, concepts and philosophy remains the same for the whole G-Shock Model Range

Hollow case structure. Based on a realization that “shocks are not transmitted inside a bouncing rubber ball,” the structure was designed to let the module float inside the case, relieving shocks transmitted from outside. Today, the module’s shock resistance is realized through further technical innovations. But the revolutionary tough structure that gave G-SHOCK its origin began here.

All-directional covering. If the watch is dropped, the protruding bezel fully enclosing it absorbs the shock, protecting the buttons directly connected to the module and alleviating shocks from all directions. The bezel also guards the surface of the crystal. The band is curved stiffly at the point of connection with the case, moreover, enabling it to serve as a shock absorber and prevent direct shocks to the back of the case.

Protective cushioning of key parts. The crystal oscillator and other critical parts inside the module are guarded individually by cushioning material. Any strong shock to the watch causes immediate distortion of the cushioning inside the module, preventing contact failure and malfunction.

Japan Quality. Constructed with genuine quality, CASIO products provide truly practicable applications in which functionality and beauty combine. The leading-edge LSI technologies and skilled craftsmanship that give life to CASIO watches exemplify the quality Japan boasts in the world marketplace.
For CASIO, “faith in manufacturing” refers to an inexorable advancement of digital technologies and an uncompromising commitment to fine craftsmanship. This faith engenders unparalleled performance that not only elevates CASIO watches as close as possible to perfection, but that actually changes their wearers’ lifestyles.
