Fans of Casio’s G-Shock watch quality but with a thirst for metal may finally feel quenched thanks to the new G-Steel Collection. The goal is to take G-Shock to the next aesthetic level, offering second level durability and shock resistant features only a full metal body could obtain.
It’s an exercise in what G-Shock is calling “layered toughness” in which each watch in the G-Steel series boasts a quality metal body that houses the same shock resistant characteristic the G-Shock line is so well known for these days. The watch’s stainless steel is both sleek in design and scratch resistant with a smooth metallic finish. Also, its double-layered bezel construction of stainless steel and resin ensure a long-lasting timepiece of hefty proportions while the G-Steel’s Tough Solar technology converts almost any light into electric power, replenishing the battery at all hours of the day. Additionally, the watch boasts water resistance of up to 200 meters, a world time function that lets you check the current time in cities around the globe, as well as digital and analog time settings. They’re available in either stainless steel or resin bands and also come in several colorways as well to suit any style. Prices start at $280. [Purchase]
