Casio G-SHOCK has announced the launch of a new Desert Camouflage Series of outdoor watches. These new timepieces include MUDMAN, RANGEMAN, and MUDMASTER models, all of which are a part of the Master of G line. Each watch has a military-inspired design, with a black bezel, light brown lettering, orange accents, and a desert camo wristband.

All three of these new watches are powered by G-SHOCK's Tough Solar system, which uses integrated solar panels to gather energy from the sun during normal use. This solar energy is then stored in a rechargeable battery that powers all the watch's functions, including Multiband 6 atomic timekeeping. The atomic system allows the watch to receive calibration signals from radio transmitters around the globe, ensuring your watch is accurate down to the second.

As expected from G-SHOCK, these three watches are designed to withstand the company's 7 Elements: electric shock resistance, gravity resistance, low temperature resistance, vibration resistance, water resistance (200 meters, in this case), shock resistance and toughness. The MUDMAN and MUDMASTER models are also mud-resistant for added protection during wilderness survival scenarios.
