With the launch of its first watch in November 1974, Casio entered the wristwatch market at a time when the watch industry had just discovered digital technology. As a company with cutting-edge electronic technology developed for pocket calculators, Casio entered this field confident that it could develop timepieces that would lead the market.
Today, Casio is focusing its efforts on solar-powered radio-controlled watches: the built-in solar battery eliminates the nuisance of replacing batteries, atomic timekeeping means the users never have to reset the time. Recently, Casio launched a series of Bluetooth watches that sync to the users cell phone to automatically update the time. Casio is always moving time forward.
Combines advanced timepiece technology with high performance functionality in the new g-shock g-aviation. Preserving the G-Aviation legacy, this new chronograph possesses a cockpit inspired display with a large case analog dial featuring white accents and triple g resist structure. Triple g resist structure is designed to withstand the shock of three forces; gravitational dropping force, centrifugal gravitational force and vibration. The gw-a1000 also features multi-band 6 atomic timekeeping, enabling self-adjusting of time and date by automatically syncing the watch to any of the 6 regions’ atomic towers base on the wearer’s home city setting. Comes with “smart access,” making the watch’s functions smoother than ever with an electronic crown switch and five-motor drive. The wearer can easily select the time in different cities around the world and with just a simple press of the switch, move between home time and world time, or instantly display coordinated universal time (utc). Since the hour, minute, and second hands, are driven by separate motors, the hands respond quickly when the wearer resets or starts the stopwatch, or switches between different time displays. “smart access” enables convenient, simple operation of the watch’s wide range of features, including a “fly-back” function that allows the stopwatch to be instantly reset and start during operation as well as instant temperature display at the press of a button.
