G-SHOCK unveils first-ever FROGMAN featuring analog display

While still maintaining the asymmetrical design that has become synonymous with the iconic series, the new GWFA1000-1A2 features a new monocoque case made of carbon fiber reinforced resin which integrates the case and case back; providing the utmost durability and low absorbency.

Casio announced the first analog model within G-SHOCK’s popular FROGMAN series of dive watches. While still maintaining the asymmetrical design that has become synonymous with the iconic series, the new GWFA1000-1A2 features a new monocoque case made of carbon fiber reinforced resin which integrates the case and case back; providing the utmost durability and low absorbency.

The watch comes with a navy band alongside a silver and black watch face which displays dual time, dive time and tide in analog format. The GWFA1000-1A2 also boasts enhanced readability with large, luminescent hour and minute hands, making it easier for divers to check their dive time at a quick glance.

The new GWFA1000-1A2 comes equipped with updated technical features, including Bluetooth connectivity through the G-SHOCK Connected app and a full-time smartphone link, which comes with all new functions like Dive Log and Tide Point Setting. With dive log, the user can mark dive locations, time, date, number of dives, plus include photos. With Tide Point, the user can select from a preset list of some of the world’s most famous dive points or set their own.

In diving mode, the hour and minute hands overlap and move in unison to form a single hand, making the time spent underwater easy to see and intuitive. To quickly switch the hands from the current time to the elapsed dive time, Casio developed a new module with three dual coil motors. When in Tide Mode, the watch will display tide data for a specified location and date while also displaying the current local time.

The new GWFA1000-1A2 is built with premium materials, including a sapphire crystal with non-reflective coating and its tough flouroelastomer band adds exceptional resistance to staining and hydrolysis, which allows the watch to be used in and out of the water without worry.

Additional technical features include a Super Illuminator LED light which helps to ensure readability in the dark and underwater, built-in tough solar technology for self-charging capabilities and Multi-Band 6 Atomic Timekeeping for self-adjusting, accurate hour/date display virtually anywhere on the globe.
