The composite band GWF-A1000XC is the latest additions to the GWF-A1000 Series, the first analog model for the FROGMAN Series of G-SHOCK MASTER OF G ISO 200m diver-level water-resistant watches.
This model is the first of the FROGMAN lineup to come with a composite band with an extension mechanism on the buckle that allows it to be easily worn over a wet suit while diving. During normal wear, the mechanism can be folded up for a normal-length band.
The center segments of the GWF-A1000XC's band are made using fine resin making the bands both strong and lightweight.
The stainless steel bezel of GWF-A1000XC sports a blue ion-plated (IP) finish and a yellow second hand for improved visibility.
The base model for this new addition is the GWF-A1000, which introduced an analog face while maintaining the asymmetrical face design that has been part of this series since its inception in 1993. Large, luminescent hour and minute hands improve readability, and the face provides an intuitive indication of measurement information.
The monocoque structure of this model incorporates the case and back cover into a single piece.

What to do with Broken Watches? 

G Shock Battery Replacement

G Shock battery life ranges from two to six years, depending on how often you use the alarm or the backlight. Frequent use of either feature drains the battery pretty fast hence, the need for replacement. The life of the replacement battery, on the other hand, depends on how long it has been sitting on the shelf. Its shelf life is ten years in room temperature after which it goes through gradual degradation.

G Shock Strap Replacement 

G Shock watches are known to last a lifetime, but the bands wear out after prolonged use. To replace them, place the watch facing downwards on a soft cloth, unhook the spring bars located at the base of each strap. Some models have the bars covered while others are exposed. Use a spring-bar removal tool to unhook and pull the band away from the watch. Repeat the process to remove the other spring bar. Replace them with the rod slots of the new band and use the spring-bar tool to fasten the bands. The procedure applies when replacing rubber straps. Metallic bands require a little tact hence, the need to engage a professional.

Watch Glass Replacement 

A scratched watch glass can be annoying, especially for people who are overly attached to their G Shock watches. Some scratches can be repaired while others require replacements. Please contact us for more information.
