Focus of this year from Casio is the carbon series. Now available throughout the range. Evolving from resin to metal and now carbon.
First the Gravitymaster GWR-B1000. Triple shock resist, radio controlled, solar powered. Flyback Chrono, dial dial world time.
Bezel is made of 52 layers of carbon sheeting. A carbon monocoque case made by carbon pellets. 72g, it is the lightest Gravitymaster. The strap is also in carbon. US$800.
Thermometer, barometer, digital compass and a step counter. With sunrise and sunset and world time. US$ 350.
Next the G-Steel GST-B200
Reduces from the older model, from 55.9 to 53.3mm diameter.
Smartphone link, world time, solar powered. With chronograph. US$ 280.
MR-G 2019 Limited Edition Gassan
Full metal body in titanium, hand made by Sadanobu Gassan, a swordmaking family with 800 years of history. The purple hue is done by a process called Deep-violet-sip to achieve the koko-murasaki deep violet. 300pcs LE. US$ 7400.
And Casio joins the rainbow fray with the MT-G-B1000.
US$ 1,000 with a bezel in titanium by ion plating.
And an update to the GMW-5900V with a patina like finish created by arc ion plating.
Looks like “brassing” on a black GMW-5000.
