Casio is proud to announce the release of G-Shock’s G-Steel Series – a refined range of timepieces for the active gentleman seeking G-Shock's legendary performance and technology standards.
Inspired by the adventurous man that grew up wearing G-Shock and now has a more refined style, the G-Steel range offers six premium models. Debuting with a bold new design, the range is equipped with a tough layered bezel structure. The dual-layer makeup of the bezel fuses materials such as resin and steel, or resin and fine resin resulting in a timepiece that can resist strong top-down shocks.
The fusion of a resin bezel and stainless steel band is available on the GSTS100D-1A2 and GSTS100D-1A4. The GSTS110D-1A model has a stainless steel bezel and band. Offering a stainless steel blue ion-plated bezel, band and case cover is the GSTS110BD-1A2. The GSTS110-1A has a stainless steel bezel and resin band. Finally, the GSTS100G-1A has a resin bezel and band, and a stainless steel gold IP plated case cover.
In addition to the layered bezel structure, the G-Steel range provides an abundance of technological features. Tough Solar Power means never having to worry about the battery running down as all spectrums of illumination convert electric power for the timepieces. As is customary for all G-Shock timepieces, the G-Steel range is Shock Resistant and 200M Water Resistant. Additional features include Full-Auto Double LED, Neo-brite Luminous Hands, World Time (31TZ / 48 Cities + UTC), 5 Daily Alarms, 1/100th Sec. Stopwatch (60Min), Countdown Timer (100Min), 12/24 Hr Formats, Hand Retraction, and a Case Size of 52.4mm.
The initial release of the G-Steel range will be in August 2015 with four models – the GSTS100D-1A2 ($549), the GSTS100D-1A4 ($549), the GSTS110D-1A ($599). The GSTS100G-1A ($499), GSTS110-1A ($499), and the GSTS110BD-1A2 ($749) will follow in September 2015.
