[G-Shock Mudmaster] I choose G-Shock GWG-1000 for climbing trips

Climbing is part of my life. There are many mountains out of Tokyo to go on a day trip. Every time I do a climb, different things get reset. That makes me want to try my best again from the beginning of the week. — says Mr. Kabuchi.

It’s about a two-hour drive from Tokyo. If you stop the car and walk for 10 minutes, you will also meet a mountain. There are many areas around Tanzawa. It’s the perfect place to relax your head and body on weekdays and weekends. However, outerwear with some technicalities is necessary for emergencies. That’s why I choose G-Shock GWG-1000 for such trips.

The watch is a unique full-scale model that can measure temperature, atmospheric pressure, altitude, etc. (G-SHOCK “Mudmaster”). Since the compass function can be used, it can be helpful for climbing that requires map reading.
