Today, Casio G-SHOCK unveiled the latest color addition to the rugged men’s MUDMASTER line (GG1000-1A8) in dark shades of blue and black – perfect for the upcoming winter months. Part of the Master of G series, the timepiece is geared towards those who work in the toughest of conditions and is best known for its mud-resistant structure.
The watch, which is built to withstand extreme weather, boasts a cylindrical guard structure with multiple gaskets on the pipes that guide the buttons and shaft to prevent mud, dust, and debris from entering the watch, as well as a textured band and large buttons to enhance button operation even while wearing gloves.
Other premium features include G-SHOCK’s legendary Twin Sensor technology, which allows the MUDMASTER to accurately determine compass bearing and temperature. With its wide range of special features, the GG1000-1A8 will be able to withstand any adventures off the beaten track.

CASIO’s shock-resistant G-SHOCK watch is synonymous with toughness, born from the developer Mr. Ibe’s dream of ‘creating a watch that never breaks’. Over 200 handmade samples were created and tested to destruction until finally in 1983 the first, now iconic G-SHOCK hit the streets of Japan and began to establish itself as ‘the toughest watch of all time’. Each watch encompasses the 7 elements; electric shock resistance, gravity resistance, low temperature resistance, vibration resistance, water resistance, shock resistance and toughness. The watch is packed with Casio innovations and technologies to prevent it from suffering direct shock; this includes internal components protected with urethane and suspended timekeeping modules inside the watch structure. Since its launch, G-SHOCK has continued to evolve, continuing to support on Mr. Ibe’s mantra “never, never give up.” www.gshock.com
