Casio G-Shock GWF-D1000 Watches

About the Watch in short. This model is a real find for professional divers and just diving enthusiasts. Water protection meets international standards ISO 200, in which samples are tested for stable operation at a depth of 200 meters under water. The case is distinguished by its atypical asymmetric shape. The strap is made of two materials – polyurethane and carbon fiber [for even greater strength]. A new generation triple sensor is installed in the watch – the depth gauge, which measures the depth of being under water, takes the place of the barometer. The measuring range of -80m is ready to satisfy almost any divers needs. After the dive, you can display information about the water temperature, duration of the dive and depth. If the ascent is too fast, the watch will tell you about the need to slow down for the safety of the body. Other functions of the sensor are a thermometer that measures the temperature of the water, and a digital compass. The solar battery is responsible for the power, and the time is synchronized by radio waves. Powerful backlighting will make the dial visible even in the darkest places under water.

Solar Power. None-Stop – A solar panel converts even weak illumination from fluorescent lighting into electric power. A rechargeable battery with a large power storage capacity supports stable operation of various functions with high electricity consumption. You never have to worry about the battery running down because it’s a solar battery. Casio watches with solar technology, receive thermal and electrical energy that recharges the watch batteries through solar panels on the face of the watch.

MultiBand 6. Terrestrial radio wave reception from 6 transmission stations worldwide. Automatic time correction available in Japan, North America, UK, Europe and China.
— Reception is possible even when surrounded by buildings.
— Signals are received during the night to keep the displayed time exact. — Reception is possible with less than normal power consumption.

Official Marketing Focus from Casio

The evolution of the iconic G-SHOCK Master of G FROGMAN has surfaced. Designed in close consultation with dive rescue teams, the new FROGMAN features a number of truly indispensable functions. A new Triple Sensor featuring a digital compass with auto horizontal correction, the first ever depth gauge with .1m intervals measuring to a depth of 80 meters and thermometer combined with an high-brightness LED backlight, Dive Timer/Log and ISO 200-meter water resistance highlight the professional precision of this diver’s timepiece. A shock resistant DLC-coated stainless steel case with screw-lock back case and sapphire crystal pay homage to G-SHOCK’s ethos of Absolute Toughness and a supple carbon fiber insert band with extra length provide a secure, yet comfortable fit & feel against the wrist or over a wetsuit.

Official GWF-D1000 Specs / Features *for base version GWF-D1000-1

  • Super-Full-Auto LED light
    If the ambient light fades, a turn of your wrist illuminates the watch display particularly brightly.
  • 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.
  • Thermometer (-10°C / +60°C)
    A sensor measures the ambient temperature around the watch and displays it in °C (-10°C /+60°C).
  • Digital-compass
    A built-in direction sensor detecs the magnetic north.
  • Depth gauge to -80 m
    A pressure sensor measures changes in water pressure and converts the result into a depth display. Dives down to -80 m can be displayed.
  • 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.
  • Moon Phase Indicator
    The moon phase indicator shows the current moon phase based to the earth
  • Diver’s Log
    Data such as dive time, water temperature and dive depth can be saved and called up at a later date.
  • Surfacing alert
    The watch issues an alert if the diver surfaces at a speed of more than 10 m/min., meaning the diver is not in compliance with the relevant decompression times.
  • World time function
    Displays the current time in major cities and specific areas around the world.
  • Stopwatch function – 1/100 sec. – 100 hours
    Elapsed time, split time and final time are measured with 1/100-sec accuracy. The watch can measure times of up to 100 hours.
  • Timer – 1/1 min. – 24 hours
    For fans of precision: the countdown timers help you to remember specific or recurring events by giving off an audible signal at a preset time. The time can be set to the nearest minute and up to 24 hours in advance. Ideal for people who need to take medicines every day or those who do interval training.
  • 5 daily alarms
    The daily alarm reminds you about recurring events with an acoustic signal at the time you have set. This model has 5 independent alarms for flexible reminders of important appointments.
  • Snooze feature
    Each time you stop the alarm, it sounds again after a few minutes.
  • Button tones on/off
    The button tones for using the mode button can be turned off. This means that the watch no longer beeps when switching from one function to another. Preset alarm or countdown timers remain active when the button tones are deactivated.
  • Automatic calendar with Date, Day and Month
    Once set, the automatic calendar always displays the correct date.
  • 12/24-hour timekeeping
    Times can be displayed in either a 12-hour or 24-hour format.
  • Sapphire crystal
    Artificially manufactured glass with the hightest hardness and scratch resistance
  • Stainless steel resin case
  • Screw locked back
    The screw connection on the base of the housing optimally protects the inner workings of the watch and simultaneously provides easy access, when changing the battery for example.
  • Carbon-resin wrist strap
    On their own, carbon and resin are stress-resistant and durable — together they create a wrist strap that is extra robust and extremely durable. And the “carbon design” on the wrist strap not only looks elegant, it also lends the watch a sporty, dynamic touch.
  • Buckle
  • Battery level indicator
    An indicator shows the current battery level.
  • Water Resistant (ISO)
    This model is water tight after ISO 200 and withstands water pressure to a depth of 200 m.
  • Dimensions (H x W x D)
    59,20mm x 53,30mm x 18,00mm
  • Weight
    approx. 141,00 g
