Casio G-Shock unveiled its new “Tough Leather” band for its G-STEEL line this week, combining the brand’s toughness with a classic look.
Debuting as part the new G-STEEL Street Vintage Style Collection in March, its “Tough Leather” band is made of a unique hybrid of synthetic leather and resin, and is specially designed to withstand abrasions over time.
Each model is equipped with Tough Solar Power, in addition to G-SHOCK technology such as Shock Resistance and 200M water resistance. And for high-visibility in the dark, the watch features a full-auto double LED Light, with a neon illuminator for the dial and a super illuminator for the digital display, as well as Neo-brite Luminous Hands and markers. Other functionality includes 48-city World Time, five daily alarms, 1/100th-second Stopwatch, countdown timer and 12/24hr formats, all in a 52.4mm case.
The watches are available in shades of dark brown, light brown and black, while the classic GSTS130BD-1A features a classic, black IP stainless steel band.
The G-Shock GSTS130L-1A and GSTS120L-1B is available at select accounts for $300 USD, while the GSTS130BD-1A retails from $300-$450 USD.
