From G-SHOCK, the watch brand that is constantly setting new standards for timekeeping toughness, comes a collection of new wide-face models designed under a theme of urban sports; the GA500 Series. Round faces combine with multi-dimensional hands that are made using new resin molding technology to create a road bike dial-and-wheel motif for a totally new and unique sporty design. The digital LCD, retrograde dial, face, hour markers, and other component parts are arranged in a multi-layered layout that is both highly readable and attractively fashionable. All of the buttons are slanted, to minimize any interference with the wrist. These are the first CASIO digital-analog combination models equipped with large front buttons at 6 o'clock. One press of a front button while in the Timekeeping Mode immediately starts a stopwatch operation. A Target Time function lets you specify a time you wish to achieve for an activity, which is great for road racing and other applications. The retrograde hand is driven by a dual-coil motor that enables quick and accurate multi-functional operation. Great design, a collection of useful functions, and more all add up to make the new G-SHOCK GA-500 the perfect choice for a wide range of timekeeping needs.
