Casio has expanded the G-Shock G-RESCUE series (G7900) with the new model GW7900B. Following in the footsteps of its predecessor, the GW7900B remains steeped in the tradition of G-Shock water and shock resistance while taking the G-Shock technology one step further.
The GW7900B, a sleek black on black color way with a reverse LCD, now features Non-Stop, Tough Solar Power and Self Adjusting Multi-Band 6 Atomic Timekeeping for superior accuracy and reliability.
Non-Stop, Tough Solar Power – A tiny, solar panel combined with a large-capacity rechargeable battery enables a variety of energy-hungry functions to operate smoothly. The result is an impressive solar timepiece that assures reliable timekeeping and greatly reduces the need for battery change.
Self-Adjusting Multi-Band 6 Atomic Timekeeping – Compatible with all six transmission stations worldwide, Multi-Band 6 is a radio-control system built to receive time calibration signals from up to six transmission stations: two in Japan and one each in North America, the United Kingdom and Germany, plus the new station in China.
The G-Shock G-RESCUE GW7900B digital watch possesses a stylish, large case with superior four-point protection, made by 4 large screws on the bezel to form a nearly impenetrable line of defense. The largest buttons in G-Shock history improve button operability, even while wearing gloves. For a high performance fit and superior shock resistance, the G-RESCUE features back case shock absorbers to stabilize the watch and protect the case from impact.
Deriving its inspiration from search and rescue teams worldwide, the G-RESCUE features include moon and tide graph, shock resistance, 200M water resistance, auto EL backlight, world time, four daily alarms, 1/100 second chronograph and 12/24 formats.
The G-RESCUE GW7900B has a retail price of $150.
