G-Shock Japan has two new GWN-1000 Gulfmaster watches scheduled for an April release, the blue GWN-1000H-2AJF and yellow GWN-1000H-9AJF featuring high-contrast numbers on the bezels to display changes in altimeter and barometer sensor readings. These are the first blue and yellow Gulfmaster models to feature a flat black bezel. The blue GWN-1000H-2A has blue and red lettering and a red-accented hour hand. The yellow GWN-1000H-9A has yellow and white lettering and a yellow-accented hour hand. Both models have a reverse LCD display. The GWN-1000H-2A is a medium shade of blue that falls between the light blue GWN-1000-2A and the dark navy blue GWN-1000F-2A.
The solar powered GWN-1000 Gulfmaster is one of three G-Shock models to feature the Triple Sensor with altimeter, barometer, compass, and thermometer, the other two models being the all-digital GW-9400 Rangeman and the analog-digital GWG-1000 Mudmaster. The Gulfmaster is the designated maritime model of the G-Shock Master of G line and represents the “sea” version of the “Land, Sea, and Air” trio of analog Master of G models. The Gulfmaster also features a tide chart and moon age data.
Retail list price for the GWN-1000H-2AJF and GWN-1000H-9AJF is ¥57,000 JPY.
Update: Casio USA announced the release of the yellow Gulfmaster Summer Color GWN1000H-9A for May 2016 with a list price of $500.
