G-SHOCK is known for its tough Master of G military watches, which are delineated in three categories: MUDMASTER for land, GULFMASTER for sea, and GRAVITYMASTER for air. Each series of watches includes features designed specifically for its intended area of operations. The MUDMASTER resists mud and dust, the GULFMASTER monitors atmospheric and tidal conditions, and the GRAVITYMASTER is reinforced against shock, vibration, and centrifugal force.

When searching for design inspiration for the latest GRAVITYMASTER watch, G-SHOCK examined a flight jacket. Its olive drab exterior and high-visibility orange inner lining have been reflected in the new Olive Green GRAVITYMASTER (Model GA1100KH-3A). This watch features an olive 52mm case and band, with bright orange and white accents.

Wide hour and minute hands show the time in your current location, but there's also a secondary location time displayed at the 9:00 position. This is ideal for those who frequently cross time zones or telecommute to remote locations. Additionally, the built-in Twin Sensor includes compass bearing and temperature readout, both useful features for any survivalist. The compass even incorporates bi-directional calibration and magnetic declination correction.
