Casio G-Shock GA-700 Watches

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.

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.
