The Mudmaster line was designed to withstand the toughest conditions, meaning you can wear your timepiece on the go with ease.
G-Shock Gravitymaster Watches
Famous for its unique avionic design, the analogue Gravitymaster line was developed to fill a need for pilots for tougher watches with improved accuracy, strength and functionality. Crafted from a shock-resistant structure that protects the watch’s modules with a carbon-reinforced resin case, an intricately laminated bezel with 52 layers of carbon sheeting and a tough carbon fibre insert band, this G-Shock line was built with style and functionality in mind.
G-Shock G-Squad Watches
Supporting your active lifestyle by monitoring your fitness levels, this watch line is equipped with a 3-axis accelerometer that keeps track of your step count, a multi-timer that allows you to keep up to 20 alarms, a heart rate monitor which measures your heart rate zone and the number of calories, 200-metre water-resistance as well as a GPS function which allows you to map out your location. G-Shock’s G-Squad line even has an app that allows you to connect your watch to your smartphone.
G-Shock G-Steel Watches
Combining a high-quality design with G-Shock’s signature toughness, the G-Steel line offers a premium look and functional design. Boasting a double-layer bezel construction of stainless steel and a sleekly moulded resin which is intended to cushion the lower part of the watch against impact from the upper part, this G-Shock line will bring a whole new level of toughness to your everyday style. Borrowing design elements from both classic chronograph watches and G-Shock’s signature aesthetic, these timepieces are ideal for those who like to mix the classic with the contemporary.
G-Shock G-Lide Watches
Initially designed with surfers in mind, G-Shock’s G-Lide line has a myriad of unique features that will support you while you’re out catching some serious waves. Not only are these watches water-resistant in up to 200 meters of water, but they also have a function that helps provide information about the moon and the tide. Featuring a tough yet soft silicone band and a large digital/analogue face, this watch line will bring some serious 90s nostalgia to your street style.
G-Shock Mr G Watches
Arguably the most premium lines in the G-Shock range. Mr G watches offer a variety of luxurious features including a stainless steel or titanium case, a GPS hybrid wave ceptor which allows you to adjust your watch to your exact location and environment using precise positioning data, dual dial world time which allows you to display two different time zones and even water resistance in up to 200 metres of water. Extremely versatile, this watch line’s sleek design ensures that you’ll have no trouble taking your timepiece from day to night.
G-Shock MTG Watches
An abbreviation of ‘Metal Twisted G-Shock’; the MTG line is another one of the more premium watches from the G-Shock range. All of the watches in this collection incorporate a new core guard structure consisting of an inner-case that is installed in a box-shaped frame and held together by screws that connect the bezel, case back and band connection pieces. This innovative design is excellent at absorbing major shocks, making this watch line ideal for every kind of style and lifestyle. This watch line also has a slew of top-notch features including 200-meter resistance, smartphone connectivity via the G-Shock app and Triple G Resist (TGR) which gives the watch the ability to withstand three types of shocks
G-Shock Gulfmaster Watches
Designed for men and women who are at one with the sea and the ocean, watches from G-Shock’s Gulfmaster line have special storm sensors which can pick up any sudden changes in atmospheric pressure-meaning that you won’t be left startled by any impending weather events when you next venture out to sea. This may also help you in your decision-making if you are ever in the path of any hazardous storm and need to make plans to avoid it. Other features that the Gulfmaster boasts include a tide graph, a moon graph display and double LED lights.
