There is a new all-digital Master of G watch available and it is the top of the line all-digital G-Shock. The G-Shock Frogman GWF-D1000 is a June 2016 release. The initial models include the GWF-D1000-1JF, the GWF-D1000B-1JF, and the GWF-D1000K-7JR Love The Sea And The Earth 2016 limited edition model.
Update: Casio America announced the GWFD1000B-1 with a list price of $1,050.
The major new features of the GWF-D1000 are a depth meter sensor to gauge diving depth, a sapphire crystal for improved scratch resistance, a compass bearing sensor that works underwater, a thermometer to measure water temperature, and a carbon fiber insert band. Like the previous GWF-1000 model, the GWF-D1000 has Tough Solar power, Multi-Band 6 atomic timekeeping, and tide and moon age data. The new model maintains the Frogman’s tradition of superior build quality with a stainless steel case and a screw-lock case back with DLC coating. Though it differs from the usual Triple Sensor-equipped (pressure sensor, compass, thermometer) G-Shocks, this Frogman is also billed as a Triple Sensor watch with its water depth gauge, compass, and thermometer. Unlike other G-Shocks with a compass sensor (except for the GWN-Q1000 Gulfmaster), this one has automatic horizontal compensation. The GWF-D1000 also has a Time Stamp function that can store 20 time stamp records of water depth, water temperature, and compass bearing. The Frogman line, first released in 1993, is G-Shock’s signature diving watch and is the only G-Shock line with 200-meter water resistance that is ISO-compliant.
The GWF-D1000-1JF has silver accents and a red Frogman logo, while the GWF-D1000B-1JF has a blue ion plating on the front screws and sensor and a blue subdisplay ring and Frogman logo. The underside of the bands of the GWF-D1000B-1JF is also blue.
The dimensions of the GWF-D1000 are 59.2 x 53.3 x 18.0 mm which is slightly larger than the GWF-1000 (58.3 x 52.8 x 18.0 mm) and the weight is 141 grams. Retail list price for the GWF-D1000-1JF is ¥125,000 JPY (~$1,098 USD). The GWF-D1000B-1JF and GWF-D1000K-7JR are ¥130,000 JPY (~$1,142 USD).
