For Baselworld 2016, Casio has introduced one of the most impressively cool G-Shock replica watches in a while with the brand new model GWF-D1000 Frogman diver. Casio’s premier serious diving G-Shock watch has retained everything we love about a Casio G-Shock replica watch and has grown into a serious diving computer. Casio has finally developed a neat-looking tool that modern divers can rely on, as well as a timepiece that you can theoretically wear on a daily basis.
According to Casio, the original G-Shock Frogman was introduced in 1993 and like many of their core collections has evolved over time as the company added more and more features to its G-Shock rescue diver. Many of those advancements were about making the Casio G-Shock Frogman a better watch such as making it more durable or solar-powered. For 2016, The Casio G-Shock Frogman GWF-D1000 swiss watches replica online family has been upgraded to incorporate the features of a relatively robust dive computer – while still retaining all the same features and conveniences of a Casio G-Shock.
These convenience features include Casio replica watch’s full swathe of functions such as the “Tough Solar” light-powered movement, atomic clock radio signal accuracy control system, and intense case durability. Most of the inner case is actually DLC-coated steel and the Frogman is further water resistant to 200 meters. Casio also added three sensors which measure the temperature, depth gauge, and compass.
As a dive computer, the Casio G-Shock Frogman GWF-D1000 replica watch logs your dive time, tracking your depth, recording the water temperature, and logging the data for up to 20 dives. That means the Casio G-Shock Frogman GWF-D1000 acts as a more or less complete dive computer.
On paper, this all sounds great but what does the 2016 Casio G-Shock Frogman GWF-D1000 replica watch feel like on the wrist? The first thing you notice when you hold the watch is how much more sturdy and solid it feels as compared to most less-expensive or less-engineered Casio G-Shock replica watches. The entire inner part of the case is black DLC-coated steel, which has the resin “armor” of all G-Shock timepieces. The screen is totally new as well, offering a better resolution and more crisp display. This isn’t the G-Shock watch you grew up with.
Over the dial of the 53.3mm-wide Casio G-Shock Frogman GWF-D1000 replica watch case is a sapphire crystal. This isn’t the first time Casio has used a sapphire crystal on a G-Shock case, but you can imagine that such components are rare in the G-Shock replica watch collection. Style-wise, the Casio G-Shock Frogman GWF-D1000 isn’t trying to win any beauty contests, but succeeds in being a distinctly modern and very “G-Shock” tool watch that inspires the same amount of “nerd want” as any other high-performance tool watch.
