Royal Navy x G-SHOCK FROGMAN Limited Edition timepiece
G-SHOCK recently announced the Royal Navy x G-SHOCK Frogman, the latest timepiece from G-SHOCK’s partnership with the Ministry of Defense, in a deal brokered by IMG.
G-SHOCK is an unbreakable timepiece built from a “Never Give Up” philosophy that makes it perfectly equipped to support UK service personnel both on and off-duty around the world. G-SHOCK is already the watch of choice for many in the Armed Forces, and this limited-edition release further cements the partnership as an official licensee of the Ministry of Defense.
This Royal Navy x G-SHOCK FROGMAN watch is designed in conjunction with the Royal Navy, the watch has been built to accommodate the hostile environments faced by navy personnel, at sea and on land, using a Carbon Core Guard structure. Along with this structure, it’s combined with world-renowned G-SHOCK shock resistance and ISO 200M diving water resistance. The ISO certification reaffirms the timepiece’s suitability for use by professional divers.
The Carbon Core Guard structure is combined with a carbon monocoque case that is completed with a back cover engraved with a bespoke naval version of the G-SHOCK frog character. Carbon fibre resin is used for the case material, offering high strength and low absorbency. In addition, there are six screws that securely fasten the metal ring that is press fit to the glass. Enhanced water resistance is facilitated by the button shafts’ triple gasket fittings.
This Frogman watch also features an analogue display and big, bold hour markers and hands for better readability. A trio of dual-coil motors drives the hour, minute and world time hands for high-speed movement and instantaneous mode changes.
The special edition timepiece features design elements directly inspired by British naval history. The unique aesthetic takes inspiration from HMS Queen Elizabeth, the largest aircraft carrier ever to serve the Royal Navy. Here the Royal Navy’s instantly recognisable colour palette of red, white and navy is used to striking effect, alongside the contrasting light grey which replicates the ship’s hull.
Other features include sapphire crystal, Tough Solar power, Multi-Band 6 automatic radio timekeeping and Bluetooth mobile link. There is also a tide graph, Neobrite luminescent hands, date and day display, stopwatch, countdown timer, daily alarm, dual time, LED light, and a diving mode with dive time, surface time measurement, and 30 log records.
