Press Release for JDM Casio G-Shock Mudman GW-9300

Just happened to see Casio's press release for the Japan market G-Shock Mudman GW-9300.  Pretty much the same as what was announced at Basel for the international model G-9300, however there are a few important differences.

As you can tell from the model number the GW-9300 will be radio controlled with Multi Band 6.  The other difference is the GW-9300 is described to have a carbon fiber reinforced resin strap.  Since no mention of this was made for the G-9300 I'm assuming the carbon fiber strap has been omitted.  Hard to see any differences between the stock photos.  Since the only other carbon fiber G-Shock (GW-S5600) was also limited to a Japan release maybe there are concerns in meeting the demand of the international market.

EDIT:  I just noticed it actually says "Carbon Fiber" on the strap in the picture below while the G-9300 says "Tough Solar" in the same location so I guess that indicates that the CF will stay in Japan.  That's OK with me.  I didn't feel like paying for it anyway.

The GW-9300 will have a MSRP of 35,000 Yen and will be released June 30.



 Press release is here.

Casio, impact resistance watch "G-SHOCK" from mud structure with a dust-proof "MUDMAN (Madman)" as a new product, an internal temperature sensor and a magnetic sensor can measure the orientation and temperature [ GW-9300] released on the 30th June.

"G-SHOCK" Since then launched in 1983, based on structural features and superior impact resistance, the design has continued to evolve.Intended for use in harsh environments Among the "Master of G (Master of G)" series, which has gained popularity as a model for the evolution of toughness performance.

We will guide you ] [GW-9300 is intended for use in harsh environments such as deserts and jungles, and the plastic cover parts of the button, a new dust-proof barriers to enter the mud is dirt and mud inside the watch structure with a "Master of G" series "MUDMAN" is. In particular, for the pursuit of reliability and functionality required by the rally cars run through the desert for several days.

Just one push button at the big three every mode even though the clock, measuring the orientation. In a few situations like the desert was a target, you can immediately see the direction your facing. The circle-shaped LCD window at the side of 10, displays a graphic indicating the four cardinal points.
And when the bivouac during the rally, as well as can be known by measuring temperature changes in the environment in the desert intense differences of temperature day and night, so graphically displays moon phases small window in the side at 9, the day It is also possible to act on that understanding the moonlight night. Of course, in the measurement of time required in the rally race car is 1,000 hours 計Reru 1 / 100 second stopwatch mounted. While progress is measured over a long time, stuck to the practical orientation and temperature can be measured simultaneously. Solar-powered "Tough Solar" and corresponding to six standard radio stations worldwide, "Multi-Band 6" is provided.

The band, by incorporating carbon fibers sealed in plastic, ruggedized "カーボンファイバーインサートバンド" adopted. Design technology and proprietary performance toughness, by fusing electronics own, such as digital display and sensors, and watch solar radio shock embody the superior functionality and reliability for use in conditions tough.
