Back in the day everyone was rocking a Casio digital watch and when they came out with the G-Shock line it was game over. When you strapped on a rugged G-Shock on your wrist you felt prepared for whatever adventure was coming your way.
Fast forward to 2017 and the ever popular G-Shock brand is still making some of the coolest watches around.
The new Gravitymaster line is one of Casio’s all-purpose flight and pilot watches.
The “Vintage Rose Gold Theme” from the Master of G collection has a handsome new look for urban and outdoor soldiers who want to keep it fly but not too formal.
The GPW1000RG-1A retails for about a $1,000 USD in February 2017 at selected jewelers, selected Macy’s, and the G-SHOCK Soho Store.
So the question remains, would you buy a G-Shock for $1,000? Personally, I love the engineering that goes into the G-Shock brand so I would definitely purchase one.
If you like this one and you have a little extra pop in your budget then let me recommend Casio’s latest limited edition G-Shock MR-G G1000 Gold Hammer Tone watch that weighs in with a $6,200 price tag.
