Casio Computer Co Ltd has announced the latest additions to the G-SHOCK line of shock-resistant watches, which has been revolutionizing personal timekeeping since 1983. The GM-5600 and GM-5600B are square-faced digital watches fitted with a bezel featuring a fine metal texture.
The new GM-5600 and GM-5600B models boast the same design as the resin-made, square-faced G-SHOCK 5600 line, but with a stainless steel bezel with a quality finish. While delivering the finely-crafted texture of metal, the new models offer the comfortable fit of a lightweight watch, thanks to the resin used for the case and band. The new timepieces also come with a light-on-dark LCD design that creates a consistently chic look.
Other functions include full auto-calendar; 12/24-hour format; EL backlight with afterglow; flash alert: flashes with buzzer that sounds for alarms, hourly time signals and countdown timer.
The new GM-5600 and GM-5600B will be available from September. Launch date and price vary with countries. In Japan, the GM-5600 will sell for 22,000 yen plus tax, and the GM-5600B for 24,000 yen plus tax.© Japan Today
