When G Shock bring out new models it’s difficult to keep tabs on them. Often the differences between what’s on offer now and last week is tricky to pin down and there are currently 192 different styles out there – so not surprising you may miss the odd one or two.
Here’s one I just spotted – what I call the urban camo G or more correctly the Casio GD120CM-5, which is as you can see (hopefully) is an exercise in camouflage if there ever was! But hidden beneath the foliage patterns there lurks a pretty well specified model.
Shock Resistant, 200M Water Resistant, Auto LED Backlight (Super Illuminator), Multi-time (4 different cities) and World Time with 31 time zones (48 cities + UTC), city code display, daylight saving on/off, home time city/world time city swapping.
5 Independent Alarms (one-time or daily) plus an Hourly Time Signal with Flash alert( Flasher with buzzer that sounds for alarms, hourly time signal).
A 1/100 second stopwatch measuring capacity: 23:59’59.99″ Measuring modes: Elapsed time, split time, 1st-2nd place times Countdown timer Measuring unit: 1/10 second with a Countdown range of 24 hours.
A Full Auto Calendar (pre-programmed until the year 2099), 12/24 Hour Formats.
Accuracy: ±15 seconds per month and a CR2025 battery that lasts around 7 years.
The Module is the 3427 and the dimensions are 55mm x 51.2mm x 17.4mm, so just a tad large for me personally even though it only weighs 72g.
Absolutely THE watch to be seen in this year – or not – I mean with all this camouflage, who’ll even notice you’re wearing it!
