Casio G-Shock Rangeman (ref. GPR-B1000-1 / 1B) with Solar-Assisted GPS Navigation Japanese watches / Quartz watches

To some, the new Casio G-Shock Rangeman (ref. GPR-B1000-1 / 1B) line of adventure watches may look like a glorified steam engine trying to compete with sleek and glossy bullet trains. Still, offering solar-assisted GPS navigation, adequate (although not stunning) battery life, as well as a bunch of other usable (the watch won't bother you with incoming messages alarms, but will let you retrace your route step by step if you somehow get lost in a wilderness) functions, this gadget looks like a reliable backup for your standalone professional GPS tracker.


Buyer’s Guide: 15 Best Pilot’s Watches to Choose From Buyer's Guide

Looking at our stats, I see that demand for recommendations regarding diving watches is a seasonal thing with most visitors coming in summer and then gradually declining till Christmas only to start growing again in early January. "Pilots" are different animals: I have an impression that people are always interested in "aviators" regardless of the time of season. So, for your reading pleasure, a choice of fifteen timekeepers from under $200 to more than $10,000 as priced by online retailers that I find worthy of being considered while shopping for your new (or maybe your very first!) pilot's watch this year.


Casio PRO TREK PRG-600 “Outdoor” World-Timer with Tough Solar Movement (ref. PRG-600-1ER) Japanese watches / Quartz watches

With its new Casio PRO TREK PRG-600 "outdoor" world-timer, the Japanese watchmaking giant delivers a stylish, surprisingly tastefully designed wristwatch. Primarilly targeting people who lead an active lifestyle and do need a time measuring device that would do a good job during a hiking expedition, it will also look great with a pair of blue jeans and a t-shirt in a safe coworking environment. Although inevitably having limitations of its own, the watch seems to give you a great combination of good build quality, reasonable price and an almost overwhelming list of functions that would make an owner of a Swiss made analog/digital timekeeper literally drool. The only thing that spoils the fun is the "cased in Thailand" insription on its machine-brushed back.


Casio G-Shock GravityMaster GPW 1000 Japanese watches / Quartz watches

The 2014 Casio G-Shock GravityMaster GPW 1000 delivers inside its defiantly oversized body an extremely small GPS receiver, a state of the art solar-powered quartz movement, as well as their signature Multi-Band 6 technology that allows the device to automatically receive standard time-calibration signal from atomic clocks. What else would you probably ask from this little monster? Make you breakfast?


Casio G-Shock Metal-Twisted (MTG-S1000D-1AJF) Japanese watches

Offered in plain and black ion-plated stainless steel, the new Casio G-Shock Metal-Twisted (MTG-S1000D-1AJF) not only offers their pretty solid Triple G Resist shock protection technology and lots of useful functions, but also packs them in an impressively designed, massive body that makes your normal "sporty" watch look like a real pussy near this rugged giant.


Casio G-Shock Rangeman GW-9400 Japanese watches

Although Casio's positioning of the new G-Shock Rangeman GW-9400 watch as a "survival" tool looks a little bit too far-fetched, the gadget still deserves a certain degree of attention. Sporting a long list of useful functions that millions of fans of the series are already quite familiar with, the Rangeman also sports their famous Triple Sensor system that makes it especially useful for hikers, forest tourists and, perhaps, even soldiers and other professionals who need a reliable and durable tactical watch.


Casio G-Shock GA-1000-2A Aviator Japanese watches / Quartz watches

As quietly as usual, the Japanese electronics manufacturer has updated the GA-1000 series of aviation-themed shock-resistant watches. Their new Casio G-Shock GA-1000-2A features a sporty body, which is similar in its styling to that of the last year's Casio G-SHOCK GW-A1000-1ADF Smart Access watch. However, this new "aviator" sports a lot more readable dial with analogue and digital displays combined for (almost) perfect usability.
