Japan gets a cool pilot’s G-Shock watch while we get a green one


We never get the good stuff! Casio in Japan just released this beautiful GW-3000 pilot in orange, blue, and white (I totally love that blue. It’s my favorite lume/color combo). It is waterproof and runs sets itself via radio. It is also a Tough Solar model and can survive masssive impacts.

It can display 29 world time cities and you can swap the home city with an away city. It also has a stopwatch and a calendar as well as a “Furuotokarenda” which is something Google seems to have translated wrong.

More stats from Serkan:

– the GW-3000 “Pilot” series is an update of the GW-2500 released in Japan in May last year
– designed so that “pilots can use it”
– capable of withstanding up to 15G
– compliant with ISO 2669: http://www.iso.org/iso/catalogue_detail.htm?csnumber=7641
– waterproof
– “shock resistant”
– “tough solar” function: small solar panel enabling the watches to recharge when they are exposed to light
– “multiband 6”: time calibration signals from six stations (two in Japan/one each in the USA, Germany, China and the UK)

– three models: GW-3000B (black/resin), GW-3000D (silver/metal), GW-3000BD (black/metal)
– all models will be released in Japan on February 25
– size: 52.5×49.8×15.5mm
– weight: 148g (74g for the GW-3000B)
– they’ll produce 3,000 units monthly
– prices: $390 for the GW-3000B, $490 for the GW-3000D and $540 for the GW3000BD
– no word on a release outside Japan

It is available this month for about $200.

What do we get? A Shamrock Shake green Baby-G that comes in a recyclable container. I mean I love me some ecology, but I want a Pilot’s watch! This green one is available here for $110.

Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.

We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
