It is larger than your usual timepiece, with a 52.1mm case. That said, G-Shock excels at making bulkier watches that won't strain your wrist.
The polished case is made from a combination of resin and stainless steel, which not only provides a sleek look but also allows water resistance down to 650 feet.
The watch is a chronograph, meaning it tells time and also boasts a 1/100th second stopwatch, an alarm and a dedicated countdown timer. A second time zone on the sub-dial makes it particularly tailored to pilots... or just world travelers.
It also works off twin-sensor technology of a digital compass and thermometer, which provides accurate bearing and temperature readings—also a boon to pilots.
There is also an LED illuminator, and the hands are bioluminous, meaning you can tell time even after nightfall.
The GA1100-1A1 will be available in March for $250.
