Casio G-Shock GST-W130 Watches

About the Watch in short. From G-SHOCK, the brand that is constantly pushing the envelope of timekeeping toughness, come new G-STEEL model design variations with “layer guard structure” for outstanding shock resistance. The bands of these models combine different materials for outstanding strength and wear resistance. The core of the band is resin, the outer surface is CORDURA® fabric, which is stronger than nylon, and the inner surface is Tough Leather, which is used for heavy-duty work wear. The GST-W130C-1AER model is beautifully finished in elegant stainless steel with a black LCD display, and this choice of bezel design adds to the G-STEEL functional elegance and makes this model universally suitable for wear with a wide range of casual fashions.
