G-SHOCK Gents Premium Gravitymaster GPS Hybrid Limited Edition RAF Watch

 

Inspired by the RAF’s durable and versatile Chinook helicopters, the GPW-1000RAF watch represents the crafts advanced technology and is tough enough to endure extreme terrain in any place and any conditions. It features a new Hybrid GPS/Radio Wave Ceptor function picking up time signals from atomic transmitters or from GPS satellites to deliver absolute accuracy – crucial to aviation.

In addition, the watch includes a Zulu time function, developed in conjunction with RAF pilots. Zulu time, an aviation and military term for UTC or Coordinated Universal Time, refers to time at the prime meridian, a more precise measurement of time developed from an increased accuracy at measuring the earth’s rotation. When the embossed red ‘Z’ is pressed the hands immediately set to Zulu time, returning to local time after a few seconds. This avoids any confusion pilots and crew may have when communicating across different time zones.

Developed as the ultimate pilots watch, details include scratch resistant sapphire glass, with anti-reflective coating, LED lit high visibility luminescent coated numbers and a carbon hands that can withstand up to 12 Gs while in rotation. 

This limited edition timepiece uses colours synonymous with the ROYAL AIR FORCE, including a utilitarian grey bezel and band inspired by the RAF's combat aircraft while the distinctive RAF logo is embossed in white onto the band’s keeper.

About G-SHOCK

G-Shock is a brand of watches manufactured by Casio, known for its resistance to shocks (e.g. hard knocks and strong vibrations). Its full form is Gravitational Shock. They are designed primarily for sports, military and outdoor adventure oriented activity; nearly all G-Shocks have some kind of stopwatch feature, countdown timer, light and water resistance.

How G-SHOCK Started

The first G-Shock was made in the 1983 Casio DW-5000C designed by an engineer working for Casio named Kikuo Ibe, around the triple ten concept: the concept for a watch that has a 10 year battery life, is water resistant to 10 bar, and can survive a 10m fall onto a hard surface. 200 prototypes were tested by dropping them from rooftops, or third story windows.

Its shock resistant design has 10 layers protecting the quartz time mechanism, the major ones being the urethane rubber outer bumper protecting the steel watch case, the stainless steel case, the hardened mineral glass watch crystal, the stainless steel screwed down caseback, and the "floating module" concept where the quartz mechanism floated free in a urethane foam cradle, with things like the outer buttons, and LCD module attached with flexible cables, with the buttons mounted to the watchcase, rather than the quartz module. It was released in April 1983, seizing the unfilled recreational and sporting market for bulky, functional watches. For the next few years Casio released a handful of new models each year. The Baby-G models were released in 1991. The popularity of G-Shocks increased rapidly throughout the 1990s. By 1998, 19 million G-Shocks had been sold worldwide and there seemed to be a peak in demand as over 200 new models were released in that year alone.
