Casio has just announced two new special edition versions of its popular Mudmaster GG-B100 watch. The Mudmaster GG-B100 was released in the middle of last year and it's the latest member of the Mudmaster family. It features a Carbon Core Guard and a design that is highly resistant to ingress of mud (hence the name). Water resistance is rated at 200 metres.
It has no less than four sensors including a pressure sensor for altimeter and barometer, a thermometer, a compass, and step counter. It also has Bluetooth connectivity, so users can use the G-SHOCK Connected app to sync the watch to a reference atomic time and access other functions of the watch such as alarm, world time, and activity tracking.
The first is a collaboration with Burton, a brand that makes snowboards. The model number is GG-B100BTN-1A.
This watch stands out for its pink accents on the bezel and dial. There's also a pink Burton logo on the dial at 9 o'clock.
Unique to the watch is the print on the band. It's a snow-covered tree camouflage pattern from forests in British Columbia, and it was inspired by Dean Blotto Gray, a renowned snowboard photographer.
These little touches were added to remind wearers of the landscape that professional snowboarders work in.
G-SHOCK x Burton Mudmaster GG-B100BTN-1A Packaging
The G-SHOCK x Burton Mudmaster GG-B100BTN-1A is priced at S$599 and it's available now at all G-SHOCK boutiques and on the G-SHOCK online store.
The second watch is a collaboration with the British Army and it's called the G-SHOCK x British Army Mudmaster GG-B100BA-1A.
The watch was designed with inputs from the British Army and it was chosen primarily because of the Mudmaster GG-B100's ruggedness.
It features a black dial with khaki accents and a camouflage band so that it doesn't draw unwanted attention. Large white hour indices and hands make it easy for the wearer to tell time.
