Casio G-Shock GA-700 Watches

About the Watch in short. G-Shock youth series with a focus on modern fashion and urban casual style. The main emphasis was made by designers on massive hands and a 3D dial effect. The case is noticeably larger than its counterparts from the GA line – such a watch will surely catch the eye of others. The round backlight button is placed on the front of the case – just like the more expensive jishoks. For convenient reading of information from electronic windows, the function of moving arrows to neutral positions is provided where they will not close the digital zone. Super Illuminator backlight fully illuminates the entire dial in the dark. The watch has a basic set of features – a timer, alarm clock, stopwatch, world clock and an automatic calendar.

Enjoy Japanese approaches to Tough and Functional Watches!

*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.

Official Marketing Focus from Casio

From G-SHOCK, the watch brand that is constantly setting new standards for timekeeping toughness, comes the new GA-700 analog/digital combination model.
Multi-dimensional hour and minute hands look as if they were carved out of a piece of metal for a powerful and bold design. The new form of these watches not only improves reading, it also projects a feeling of toughness.
A front button at 6 o’clock adds to the dynamic, leading-edge styling. The three color schemes of these models were carefully selected to reflect the brand concept. Black-and-red, black, and red capture the spirit of toughness these models are designed to represent.
All the practicality of the analog-digital format, high-brightness LED illumination, a hand shift function and much more all add up to the best in timekeeping convenience.
A 3D face combining with a distinctively tough design makes the new GA-700 models look dynamic and tough.
