G-Shock Premium Gets a Flight Compass

"The toughest watch of all time" gets a flight compass for the first time.

-

Casio have collaborated with a team of pilots to develop the first flight compass watches for G-Shock Premium.

Designed with the pilot's needs in mind, the GA-1000FC and GA-1000-1A both feature a bearing memory compass - this handy tool allows the wearer to set a target direction and notifies them if they veer off track.

Perfect for on the ground missions, survival situations, and finding your way out of a field in the Chilterns.

Also useful is the neon illuminator, which ensures that essential information can be read under any light condition (say, a dim cockpit, or those shadowy corners in pubs).

And, naturally, there's added G-Shock muscle - both watches have scratch resistant mineral glass faces, plus resin cases and straps.

From £250, out this week, g-shock.co.uk
