In the rugged terrain of the timepiece world, Casio‘s G-SHOCK MUDMAN series solidifies its presence once more. Emerging from the dust, the newly unveiled GW-9500 captures the essence of endurance, fusing unyielding resilience with uncluttered readability, offering a slimmer fit that embraces the wrist comfortably.
Unfolding the MUDMAN narrative further, the GW-9500 expands this acclaimed collection, renowned for its dust and mud resistance, crafted explicitly to excel in the harshest of terrestrial environments. This timepiece marks an emblematic moment in G-SHOCK’s timeline, exhibiting not only a unique double-layer LCD screen but a streamlined size that enhances wrist-friendliness.
Belonging to the prestigious Master of G line of G-SHOCK watches, the MUDMAN models epitomize the brand’s relentless pursuit of excellence, aiming to meet and exceed the needs of professionals grappling with extreme conditions. Whether on land, at sea, or in the sky, the Master of G range stands ready, each piece precisely tailored to its environment, with MUDMAN watches optimized for land-based exploits.
From rescue team members to adventurers daring the challenging terrestrial landscapes littered with dirt, sand, mud, or debris, the GW-9500 stands as a reliable companion. Encased in a dust and mud-resistant structure, it flaunts a thinner silhouette than its predecessor, the GW-9300, while retaining its core robustness.
The timepiece’s distinguishing feature lies in its double LCD screen, a testament to the brand’s commitment to functional innovation. It amplifies the legibility of the digital compass, proving to be a reliable asset even in environments plagued by low visibility. The top layer of the LCD screen illuminates the compass heading with a cross-shaped graphic, while the lower layer dutifully displays time and other vital measurements.
Sporting a slimmer profile, the GW-9500 ensures unhindered arm movement during critical missions. Achieved through an ingenious design where the watch glass fits seamlessly into the casing, this timepiece stands 3.4 mm slimmer than its predecessor. Such a design serves the dual purpose of sleek aesthetics and practical functionality.
Functionality extends further in the GW-9500’s design, with oversized direct sensor buttons and a front button for easy measurement recording and display. Such attention to detail ensures resistance to mud and water penetration, affirming the watch’s standing as a master of resilience.
Through the MUDMAN range and the larger Master of G collection, G-SHOCK showcases its unwavering commitment to support the brave souls working under extreme conditions, the adventurers daring to conquer unchartered territories, and the explorers of our modern world.
As of now, the G-SHOCK MUDMAN GW-9500 is available for pre-order at gshock.casio.com and the G-SHOCK Store Paris, from the 2nd of August, priced at $419 USD.
