G-SHOCK always finds a way to differentiate itself from the competition, especially when it comes to functionally-approved wristwear. While many companies are focusing on the preservation and reproduction of history’s finest pilot watches, the Japanese manufacturer has decided to create a contemporary model dedicated to aviation — a well-equipped timekeeper known as the GRB200-1A2.
The G-SHOCK Gravitymaster GRB200-1A2 arrives as an aeronautical counterpart to many of the brand’s utilitarian offerings. It adopts a suite of flight mission essential functions, including a compass, altitude/barometer, an accelerometer, and temperature measurement capabilities, pairing nicely with the brand’s notable carbon-fiber-reinforced resin case. Housed within the watch’s weather-resistant Carbon Core Guard structure, buyers will find three layers of resin, carbon inserts, and a semi-transparent top layer the provides clear, legible readings of its internal Neo-Brite Luminous markers. On its right side, the watch features a three-button external layout that mimics a fighter jet’s control stick, ensuring ease of operation, and giving the GRB200-1A2 a familiar feel for flight enthusiasts. You’ll even be able to pair it via Bluetooth with G-SHOCK’s Mission Log app to record altitude, calorie consumption, GPS points, and steps taken throughout your day. Head to the company’s website to pick up one of your own for $350.
