Singapore, 12 September 2014: Casio Singapore presents a new G SHOCK GPW-1000 series with the world’s first hybrid time keeping system. Inspired by the speed and accuracy of modern aviators soaring through the skies, the pioneering hybrid technology uses both Global Positioning System (GPS) and radio wave time-calibration signals to ensure utmost precision and reliability for aviation adventures.
World’s First Hybrid Timekeeping System
Casio’s innovative timekeeping system enables the GPW-1000 to simultaneously receive both GPS and radio wave time calibration signals from six stations worldwide. Wearers can travel anywhere in the world and rely on the watch to accurately adjust the time display, reflecting changes in time zones and daylight savings.
The watch frame is also reinforced with fine resin to protect built-in GPS antennas while still allowing the sensitivity to receive precise time and location signals regardless of terrain or weather condition.
For long lasting performance, the watch also features shadow-dispersing solar cells to receive light and a low-power GPS LSI to receive GPS signals without draining the batteries.
The product comes in Blue (GPW-1000-1A), Black (GPW-1000-1B) and Orange (GPW-1000-4A) and is available now at all G-FACTORY and G-FACTORY Premium stores in Singapore at a Suggested Retail Price of SGD$999.00.
