When it comes to building a high-functioning, robust tool watch, who better to consult than G-SHOCK? The Royal Navy, that’s who. This solar tank of a timepiece is built in partnership with the UK’s naval force, and inspired by the massive HMS Queen Elizabeth Aircraft Carrier.
Casio’s Royal Navy x G-SHOCK Frogman Watch boasts a durable and lightweight carbon monocoque case, with a generous 56.7mm diameter. To the gents with modestly-sized wrists, remember that this tool watch is meant to look oversized. For you actual divers out there, this timepiece also features 200m of water resistance and a screw lock crown. Meanwhile, the multi-layered face is protected by a domed glass. If you’re trying to keep your position hidden from the enemy, this prevents intense glares. If you’re simply trying to put a casual outfit together, the dome just looks cool.
As a true naval watch, this G-SHOCK features Multi-band 6, which receives radio waves from six transmission stations worldwide, and a 30-month rechargeable battery. As a true 21st century timepiece, it also features Bluetooth and the G-SHOCK Connected App. You can use this to review dive logs on your smartphone or find a list of the world’s best diving points.
