Inspired by the Royal Air Force’s durable Chinook helicopters, the GPW-1000RAF GPS Aviator watch represents the craft’s advanced technology and is tough enough to endure extreme terrain. 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. In addition, the watch includes a Zulu time function. 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 timezones. Developed as the ultimate pilots watch, details include scratch-resistant sapphire glass, anti-reflection coating, LED-lit high visibility luminescent coated numbers and carbon hands that can withstand up to 12 Gs while in rotation.
The G-SHOCK Premium GPW-1000RAF watch is now available online and retails for approximately $1,330 USD.
