By wrapping an alpha-gel® belt around the module as well as adding a layer underneath it and by employing aluminum washers & oiled o-rings beneath the screw heads that secure the band to the case, the new Aviator is now more resistant than ever to shock, vibration and centrifugal force. The dial has been created from 4 separate layers to achieve greater depth and a base black coloring with white and safety orange highlights command quick attention to the dial for an easy-read on the fly. Black stainless steel band analog watch with black face.

About Aviation Concept

Shock-resistant hand formation:

Watch hands moving at high speeds in an environment of powerful gravitational forces are prone to lose their rotational balance due to their own weight and break down as a result. We responded by adjusting the weight balance of each hand based on precise calculations and positioning the hands in optimal locations. This permits high-speed hand movement of up to one rotation per second under powerful gravitational forces, enabling installation of a 1/100-second stopwatch that can withstand hand use by aviators.

Gravitational forces test:

 We employ specially designed testing equipment to test durability under an acceleration environment exceeding human endurance. Our tests confirm the ability of Gravity Defier's 1/100-second stopwatch and other features to function normally in a merciless environment far surpassing the 12G attained in air racing and the 5g in F1 racing.

Independent bezel structure:

The case is fully enclosed in a forge moulding-reinforced polyhedral metal bezel to protect the module, while a large-diameter urethane ring is installed to safeguard the crystal. The urethane ring also plays a role in preventing damage to cockpit equipment.

Two-directional band screws:
 Strong stainless-steel screws inserted and tightened from both sides connect the band securely to the case. The screw heads are shaved off to permit polished finishing.

A solar panel converts even weak illumination from fluorescent lighting into electric power. A rechargeable battery with a large power storage capacity supports stable operation of various functions with high electricity consumption. You never have to worry about the battery running down because it's a solar battery.

Casio watches with solar technology, receive thermal and electrical energy that recharges the watch batteries through solar panels on the face of the watch.

The combination of a solar panel with a large-capacity rechargeable battery enables a variety of energy-hungry functions to operate smoothly.

G-Shock is dedicated to the ongoing pursuit of further advancement of the Classic watch, considering every possible option to improve upon the product. They are a reflection of this pursuit in its purest sense. Their designs reflect a deeper meaning than the usual superficial styling. These are smart designs born form the pursuit of pure functionality.

Continually evolving shape

Square. Round. Whatever the case shape, they will always be shock-resistant design. It's been that way since 1983.

Button guard that protects the module from direct shocks

Our case shapes are designed in such a way to make sure that the buttons are never struck directly if the watch is dropped, no matter what the angle.

Band shape protecting the watch back

Bands with a pre-curved shape act as a shock absorber to ensure that the back of the watch never receives a direct shock. They also lend to a more agronomical fit.

Intelligent Timing

GShock watches employ intelligent, LSI-based electronic technologies to achieve unsurpassed precision and to provide a wide range of features and functions which no conventional mechanical watch can match.

G-Shock is the ultimate tough watch. It was born from a developer's dream of "creating a watch that never breaks." Guided by a "Triple 10" development concept, the design teams sought a watch with 10-meter free-fall endurance, 10-bar water resistance and a 10-year battery life.

At a time when it was commonly believed that watches were breakable items, G-Shock's development represented a challenge to common sense. The number of experimental prototypes built for endurance testing reached over 200. And the structural development and parts improvement took approximately two years. After a long, hard process of trial and error, G-Shock was finally launched. A shock resistant structure that overturned conventional thinking about watches was realized thorough breakthrough thinking, including the ideas of a hollow- structured case, all-directional protective covering and the use of cushioning material to protect critical parts.

These were the fruits of technological development that insisted on "toughness" and a revolution in watch design. Since its launched, G-Shock has continued to evolve for 25 long years, carrying on the toughness of spirit and uncompromising passion that led its developers to persist in their unshakable belief.
