Casio G-Shock GAW-100 Watches

Inexpensive youth jishoks who inherited the design of several colleagues at once – the watch has a bit of a GA-200, a series of GST-W and older AWGs. In this model, the Japanese honed all the small details of the appearance, as a result of which there appeared a balanced watch with good functionality and an affordable price. The main advantage of the GAW-100 over its counterparts is solar power [now there is no need to be afraid of battery drain] and radio time synchronization [automatic time correction]. The watch has the basic functionality inherent in the G-Shock line – a timer, stopwatch, alarm clock and world clock. Elegant backlight completely captures both analog and digital zones.

Official Marketing Focus from Casio

From G-SHOCK, the watch brand that is constantly setting new standards for timekeeping toughness, come new models based on the big case Tough Solar GAS-100.
Variations on a basic black design are created by three different bezels. The GAS-100 comes with a stainless steel bezel for a standard design that goes well with a wide range of fashion styles, while the GAS-100G has a stainless steel bezel with a gold ion-plated finish for touch of distinctive beauty. The GAS-100B has a black aluminum bezel for a cool design.
A CASIO original molding process is used to produce deposition coated hour markers that combine with the metal bezels to create a look of elegance.
