Taking Toughness to a New Level
Within the G-Shock family, the G-Shock Master of G series takes the tough game to the next level.
Designed specifically to meet the harsh condition that we may face when carrying out our outdoor mission, watches in the G-Shock Master of G family are often the answer.
The G-Shock Frogman
First, theres is the FROGMAN line-up. As the name itself suggests, G-Shock Frogman watches are amphibious devices. Amphibious means you can take them both inland and on to the water without having any slight worry about it.
Whether you are a professional diver or diving instruction who spends large chunk of your time underwater. Or you can be a sailor who spends day in and day out on the sea. Or you can be a swimming instruction whose job is always wet but more often than not, need to keep track of the time.
Many watches claim to be water-resistant. But there is a subtle difference that you have to understand.
Water-resistant watches are made to suvive a bit of kick and splash of the water. But, this is where the difference lies. They will not survive if you use them heavily underwater day in and day out. In laymen terms, they cannot be used underwater on regular basis!
If this is your need, then the Frogman models from G-Shock Master of G series are perfect for your needs.
Then, there is the RISEMAN line-up. As the name itself suggests, G-Shock’s Riseman watches are devices that you can take as you rise and conquer places of high altitudes.

Yes, it has got to do with mud! You are probably right.
The mudman watches are specifically built with special case. In addition to being a shock absorber, it is able to stop the tiniest particles.
So, if you always work in places where dust, oil or mud are abundant, the mudman series is designed with people like you in mind. G-Shock mudman watches are designed to stop these particles from making their way into the watch and damage the inner workings of the watch.

During its launch back then, the Gulfman line was touted as the perfect fusion between function and fashion. It was designed for anyone who works and plays in wet or humid environment.
The G-Shock Rangeman series is the latest addition to one of G-Shock’s toughest collection. Only few models have been released so far. It remains to be seen if the Rangeman series will be as popular as its other siblings.
One distinct feature of the Rangeman is the use of shock-resistant triple sensor. This means that you can take your G-Shock Rangeman watch to the most gruelling condition and you can expect it to survive the ordeal!
