DOVER, N.J., Aug. 1, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Today, Casio G-SHOCK unveiled an all-new line up to its popular men’s MUDMASTER series. Part of G-SHOCK’s Master of G collection, the timepieces are geared towards those who work in the toughest of conditions and is best known for its mud-resistant technology. The three new GGB100 timepieces were created with an updated Carbon Core Guard Structure and triple-layered carbon-insert bezel, providing durability in a lightweight case.
The GGB100 is available in military themed colorways, black (GGB100-1A), green (GGB100-1A3), and orange (GGB100-1A9). The new GGB100 models feature the MUDMASTER traditional cylindrical button structure, which is made to prevent debris from entering the watch, as well as a textured band and large buttons to ensure ease of use and high visibility. The new timepieces also boast a dual layered case back of thin stainless steel and fine resin to keep it airtight, resistant to shocks and provide a comfortable feel to wear from day to night.
The latest MUDMASTER’s were designed with several new features, including location and activity-tracking technology. For example, as part of the timepiece’s Bluetooth® connectivity capabilities via the G-SHOCK Connected App, they come equipped with a special function within the app that provides a location indicator, mission log memory, location memory, step tracker, sunrise and sunset data and more. In addition, the timepiece’s Quad sensors- compass, thermometer, altimeter/barometer, and step tracker – further enhance its capabilities.

CASIO’s shock-resistant G-SHOCK watch is synonymous with toughness, born from the developer Mr. Ibe’s dream of ‘creating a watch that never breaks’. Over 200 handmade samples were created and tested to destruction until finally in 1983 the first, now iconic G-SHOCK hit the streets of Japan and began to establish itself as ‘the toughest watch of all time’. Each watch encompasses the 7 elements; electric shock resistance, gravity resistance, low temperature resistance, vibration resistance, water resistance, shock resistance and toughness. The watch is packed with Casio innovations and technologies to prevent it from suffering direct shock; this includes internal components protected with urethane and suspended timekeeping modules inside the watch structure. Since its launch, G-SHOCK has continued to evolve, continuing to support on Mr. Ibe’s mantra “never, never give up.” www.gshock.com/home
