The bands of these models combine different materials for outstanding strength and wear resistance. The core of the band is resin, the outer surface is CORDURA® fabric, which is stronger than nylon, and the inner surface is Tough Leather, which is used for heavy-duty work wear. The GST-S130BC Series models come with a urethane bezel that is marked with a pattern that recalls the grip of an instrument or tool. This choice of bezel designs adds to the G-STEEL functional elegance and makes these models universally suitable for wear with a wide range of casual fashions.
Other features include solar powered operation and hand shift, as well as Neon Illuminator for the analog face and a white LED backlight for optimal readability.
A layer guard structure, and a new type of band and bezels greatly enhance design possibilities for these new G-STEEL models.
