The bezel of this model has a highly fashionable design, and is made of lightweight yet very rigid carbon material. Combining state-of-the-art Toray Industries TORAYCA®*1 and NANOALLOY®*2 results in a bezel with outstanding shock resistance characteristics. Highly scratch resistant clear sapphire glass is used for the crystal to enhance readability and appearance, and to create a design that is both tough and good looking.
The hefty urethane band was produced using a bi-color molding process that makes it possible to decorate the outer surface with a sporty pattern, and blue urethane for the inner surface. A metal band ring reduces the chance of band breakage due to abrasion. Chic blue coloring used for accents on the face combine with the blue of the inner band for a sporty look that embodies G-SHOCK toughness.
*1 TORAYCA®: High-performance carbon fiber material by Toray Industries is used in a wide range of applications, including: aerospace, high-pressure vessels, wind power generation, automobiles, bicycles, golf club shafts, fishing rods, and more.
*2 NANOALLOY®: Original Toray Industries nanometer structure control technology makes it possible to combine multiple polymers on a nano-metric scale (one billionth of a meter) for performance that is far superior to previous types of materials. This polymeric material enables high performance and high function that was previously not possible with standard micron order (one millionth of a meter) alloys.
