TOKYO, August 10, 2012 — Casio Computer Co., Ltd., announced today the release of tough new shock-resistant watches in its G-SHOCK lineup. The new GAC-100 chronograph watches feature robust designs inspired by the idea of a submarine hatch, with an analog face designed to express dynamism and strength.

Each watch in the new GAC-100 series puts the signature toughness of a G-SHOCK into a large case with a bold new face design. The elaborate, multilayer watchface is finished with three-dimensional numeral markers and indicators that show the underlying parts to give a dynamic impression. The powerful design further distinguishes the watch by using muscular hour and minute hands and a large crown guard and side buttons.

The new watches are packed with cutting-edge functionality. They feature a 1/20-second stopwatch and magnetic resistance on top of the shock-resistant construction. A luminous coating is applied to the hour and minute hands to ensure visibility. The series comes in three colors: the GAC-100-1A presents a solid impression with red and silver on a black base, the GAC-100-1A2 exudes a cool feel with tasteful placement of metallic blue, and the GAC-100-8A strikes a fashionable pose with its use of khaki. These big-case G-SHOCK watches offer a tough new design with an analog face with zero compromise in practicality.
