Casio GA700UC-3A

Investing in a G-Shock means investing in a watch tailor-made to take a beating. For over 3 decades, Casio have perfected their rugged timepieces, making them the perfect accessory for EDC. The GA700 series brings together all the features expected from a modern rugged watch, and with the UC (Utility Colors) series, adds that extra tactical flair to match an equally-rugged carry.

You may already be familiar with the hardened resin case that gives all G-Shocks their signature impact, shock resistance, and 200 meters of water resistance. Within the GA700 lies both analog and digital displays, with the latter giving you day/date visibility as well. 5 alarms, a countdown timer, world time, and backlit illumination round out the GA700's features. The 6 o'clock and side buttons have been redesigned to give you larger buttons for better purchase, and with its UC designation, you get 3 military-inspired colors to best match your EDC, including dark grey, tan, and the olive green seen above.

There's a reason G-Shocks have been a favorite of everyone from servicemen to EDCers with their (literally) solid features and inexpensive cost. The GA700UC series gives you yet another option to perfectly match your carry's needs and aesthetic. Pick up the Olive Green model at the Amazon link below.

Casio G-SHOCK GA700

If you need a watch that'll keep ticking even after serious hard use, look no further than the G-SHOCK line. It's a name that has become synonymous with extreme ruggedness through dozens of models and decades of demonstration. The recently released Casio GA700 marks a new addition to the G-SHOCK family with a striking 3D hybrid design and improved functionality to match.

The GA700 is a hybrid analog and digital timepiece. Unlike traditionally “flat” analog watch faces, the GA-700 features 3D sculpted hands that improve legibility while making a strong visual impact. Below those hands, you'll find digital readouts that tell time globally in 31 different timezones. Its digital stopwatch and chronometer functions add even more versatility to your timekeeping and can be easily controlled using pushbuttons on the side of the case. The GA-700 is the first G-SHOCK design to employ a large center button to activate a white LED frontlight to read it in the dark.

Of course, being a G-SHOCK, it'll stand up to pretty much anything you throw at it. For most of us, that might mean banging it against a wall, getting caught in the rain, or knocking it around at work. For the more extreme adventurers, it means withstanding water pressure at depths up to 200 meters or dealing with the frigid temperatures out on the trail.

Make it a part of your own everyday carry, and pick the color scheme you want out of the three available at the link below.
