G-SHOCK Introduces the G-STEEL Street Utility Collection

(Sponsored post) Two new watches in the G-SHOCK line of rugged G-STEEL models now feature straps made of Cordura, an ultra-tough fabric stronger than nylon. Dubbed the G-STEEL Street Utility Collection, these two timepieces also feature synthetic Tough Leather on the inner surface of the strap, which G-SHOCK then backs with a urethane insert to ensure unmatched water resistance and durability.

The new watches, GSTS130BC-1A and GSTS130BC-1A3, also boast a new Neon Illuminator UV LED light for the hands and indexes. Together with the new strap, this new G-STEEL set offers a new tactical-style look that is even easier to read in the dark. This makes both watches fully prepared for outdoor use. Even better, G-SHOCK has added a new style of urethane bezel with a unique knurled texture that resembles the grip of an instrument or tool.
