G-Shock Drops New Military-Inspired Watches

The men and women that protect our country are getting a special nod from Casio America, Inc. with the release of the Solar Military Green G-Shock collection which includes three signature styles in a matte olive green color.

The GR7900KG-3, G5600KG-3 and G6900KG-3 watches are all available in the new color option while still maintaining G-Shock’s standard rugged look.

“Toughness is synonymous with all aspects of the military and G-Shock is excited to introduce the new Solar Military Green capsule collection that embodies both entities,” said Shigenori Itoh, CEO of Casio America, via a statement.  “The increased functionality of the solar capabilities makes this series uniquely identifiable to one of G-Shock’s core principles, unstoppable power.”

In addition, the G-Shock Solar Military series features: shock resistance, 200M water resistance, full auto EL backlight, world time (48 cities + UTC), 4 daily alarms and 1 snooze, 1/100th second stopwatch, countdown timer, 12/24 Hr formats and mute function, among other designs and functions. In fact, the GR7900KG has all of the above features in addition to tide/moon graph & data.

Each watch in the series has a unique case shape (square, round or oval) making them similar yet different.

The Solar Military Green collection of mens watches will be available in April 2012 for $120 at Bloomingdales, Lord & Taylor, Macys, Tourneau, fashion boutiques and discerning jewellers as well as www.gshock.com. —Gina Montana
