Enjoy our G-Shock GA-900 Watch Review

This GA-900A-1A9 model, like the entire GA-900 line, is of very high quality. The strap’s quality and the “serpentine” styling continued to impress me by the end of the review. The watch is not suitable for everyone, as the size is difficult to call compact, and the style is not designed for strict business meetings. But if your life, clothing style, profession allow, I see no reason not to enjoy the pleasant emotions of the industrial GA-900 for a very reasonable price. Read Full Review →

Official Marketing Focus from Casio

G-SHOCK announces a new lineup of heavy-duty model that is great for wear in tough environments and as street fashion items as well.
The industrial design motif of this model is created by a 10-sided bezel that resembles the shape of a nut. The bezel is secured by four screws for a tough and rugged look. Combination timekeeping is provided by analog hands along with a digital display for the ultimate in operational ease. The design of the hands and the graphic figures that appear in the digital readouts create a powerful face design that enhances readability. The band connection and all buttons have checkered surfaces that prevent slipping and contribute to operational efficiency.
