G-SHOCK MASTER IN MARINE BLUE GULFMASTER GWN-Q1000MB-1A

G-Shock have released the new Master in Marine Blue collection, an ocean-themed Master of G series comprising both Frogman and Gulfmaster models. The beauty of the vast, unexplored oceans is offset by an environment that is so harsh it deters regular divers. The reverence felt by the technical divers and their support crew who explore the caves, caverns, and wrecks in this tough environment is embodied by beautiful emerald green and blue colours.

The G-Shock Gulfmaster GWN-Q1000MB-1A has an emerald blue second hand and retrograde needle along with a yellow/green IP applied to the outer bezel. The GWN-Q1000 features Tough Solar/Multi-Band 6 and a Quad Sensor with a water depth meter, altimeter/barometer, compass, and thermometer. Other features include tide graph and moon data, sunrise/sunset data, and a sapphire crystal display.

The GWN-Q1000MB-1A is designed to provide vital information about constantly changing ocean conditions for coast guard crews who respond to emergency situations on rough seas. In addition to being the first G-SHOCK analog models equipped with a depth sensor, these models also come equipped with a barometric pressure sensor that can be used to predict upcoming weather changes, a temperature sensor that detect the change of air and water temperature, and a digital compass that can be used to determine wind and tide directions. An auto level correction function detects the angle of the watch during digital compass readings and compensates accordingly, which helps to ensure correct readings while on a rocking boat. A dial at 5 o'clock is used to alert the wearer to sudden changes in barometric pressure, and acts as a Tide Graph to indicate high and low tide information. A dual-coil motor drives a retrograde dial hand to provide the wearer with instant feedback on the constantly changing natural environment.

The GWN-Q1000MB-1A is expected to be released in New Zealand in June 2017
