Casio G-Shock GW-3000 Watches

The series represents the G-Shock Gravitymaster line for pilots, where the dial design is most striking – a fully analog display with additional. windows and arrows resemble the dashboard in the cockpit. The degree of protection of the GW-3000 is fully consistent with aviation positioning – the body received protection from the effects of centrifugal force and 12G overloads. Tough Movement technology Tough Movement will automatically correct the position of the arrows if they are “knocked down” after impacts or other influences. The watch is equipped with a solar battery, recharged from daylight and radio time synchronization. Add. the window at the 3 o’clock position is responsible for displaying the time in the second time zone. Basic features are also present – a stopwatch, alarm clock, calendar and world time.

Official Marketing Focus from Casio

The G Shock Air Series is specifically designed to match the needs of any pilot. The GW-3000 perfectly embodies this concept with Centrifugal Gravitational Force resistance up to 15G. Including Tough Solar operation and Radio Controlled accuracy ensures this watch is not only stylish but is prepared for extreme conditions.

Official GW-3000 Specs / Features *for base version GW-3000M-4A

  • Shock-resistant
    Shock-resistant construction protects against impact and vibration.
  • Solar Power
    A solar cell provides power for operation.
  • Radio signal reception (EU, USA, Japan, China)
    Whether in Europe, North America and Japan or in the outer reaches of Canada, Central America and China – once the watch has been set to the local time, it receives the relevant signal and shows the correct time wherever you are. In many countries, it also sets itself automatically to summer and winter time.
  • Neo-display
    A luminous coating provides long-term illumination in the dark after only a short exposure to light.
  • World time function
    Displays the current time in major cities and specific areas around the world.
  • Date and weekday display
    The current day and weekday are both displayed.
  • Stopwatch function – 1/100 sec. – 24 minutes
    Time lapsed, interval time and end time are measured to the nearest one-hundredth of a second. The watch has a timing capacity of up to 24 minutes.
  • Daily alarm
    The daily alarm reminds you of events that recur every day, by emitting an audible signal at the set time.
  • Automatic hand adjustment
    The automatic hand adjustment function checks the home position of the hands every hour and corrects it if necessary — either by adjusting e.g. from shocks or using the influence of magnetism.
  • Automatic calendar with Date, Day and Month
    Once set, the automatic calendar always displays the correct date.
  • Mineral glass
    The tough mineral glass resists scratching.
  • Stainless steel resin case
  • Resin band
    Synthetic resin is the ideal material for wrist straps thanks to its extremely durable and flexible properties.
  • Buckle
