The latest incarnation of the popular Mudmaster range from G-Shock is the GG-B100 featuring Carbon Core Guard construction.
G-shock, a series of watches with a tough reputation, are attempting to get even tougher with carbon fiber cases that are both lightweight and incredibly durable.
Carbon fiber is assimilated into very bones of this watch, with the famously resilient material developed from aviation and aerospace research, even applied to the bezel under a layer of fine resin.
The structural changes brought about some design improvements with G-Shock’s famous button guards, being no longer deemed necessary.
Without the imposing button guards, the GG-B100 still looks like a G-Shock, but slightly less imposing.
G-Shock has released four models so far that incorporate the the Carbon Core Guard construction and it seems apparent that G-Shock is on a mission to develop indestructible watches.
In terms of functionality, the new Mudmaster has added some practical smart tech for 2019.
Aside from a thermometer, barometer, altimeter, digital compass and step counter, the Mudmaster features plenty of the top of the line functionality you'd expect from a G-Shock.
