Casio G-Shock GW-7900 Watches

A popular digital series with advanced features. The large case and powerful bezel screws emphasize the visual power of the GW-7900 – the watch module is protected from any negative influences. The main advantage of the model is the availability of solar power [recharging the battery from daylight] and radio time synchronization. Surfers and people associated with the maritime business will find useful functions for themselves – the phase of the moon and the level of the ebb / flow in a particular place are displayed. Thanks to the electronic dial, the information is displayed in a detailed form. In addition to specific functions, the watch also has basic features – a 24-hour stopwatch, a timer, world clock, a calendar and backlight with automatic response when you turn your hand.

  • Full-Auto Illuminator
    Automatically deactivates the Auto EL backlight function when surrounding light is sufficient, and activates it under dim light or dark conditions.

  • 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.
  • Moon Phase Indicator
    The moon phase indicator shows the current moon phase based to the earth
  • Tide indicator
    Once the high tide time has been entered for a selected location, the watch can display the low and high tide phases at this location on any given date. This can be quite useful, for example, if you want to know the patterns of the tides at your destination in advance.

    Each time you stop the alarm, it sounds again after a few minutes.
