  • How to Change Your Casio G-Shock Bezel

    How do I replace the Bezel in my Casio G-Shock watch?

    Welcome to the FAQ column, and today I'll be discussing how to replace the bezel in your G-Shock watch. Now, before we go on, I must warn you... do NOT try this if you're still under warranty. What you are doing will 100% void the warranty, as you're tampering with the way the watch was sent to you in the first place. Alright, warning over, let's get to it!

    bezelphilips

    First up, I'll tell you about what you need. Obviously, you'll need the new bezel, but you should also have a phillips head screwdriver, a piece of paper to keep the screws on, and a thin plastic spatula, or something you can use to get a grip on the bezel. You should also wear gloves to avoid any dirt getting in the machinery, but that's optional.

    screws

    All set? First up, depending on the watch you have, there'll be 4 or more screws to remove.  Please note, in some watches, such as the GA-100 series, the screws also hold the band together, so when you take the bezel off, be extra careful. Either that, or take the band off as well. Also, try to position the screws on your paper in the same places as they were holding the bezel (that way you can put them back in to the right position straight away.

    unbelezed

    Now then, use either the plastic spatula or your hands to peel off the bezel, from behind the buttons. The picture above should make it clear, but if not, just imagine you're peeling off the cover to your mobile phone, as it's as simple as that.

    Right, now that the bezel is off you've got the naked watch in frond of you. Take out the bezel you bought to swap the two over, and put it so it's side by side with your newly undressed watch. Don't put the bezel on just yet, first make sure the buttons line up on the watch and the bezel.

    almost in

    After that, it's quite simple. Just like putting on your phone cover back, simply slide the watch into the bezel, line up the buttons, and push in until ou hear a little snap to signify the bezel is in place. Before you put the screws back in though, check that all the buttons are working properly, then once you're sure, put the screws back in (put the band in first if you took it out), and you're done! An all new bezel for your watch!

    Hope you found this tutorial useful. Remember, do NOT do this while you're still under warranty, as you will void it.

    Until Next Time - Jimmy B.

  • Introducing the Casio G-Shock Blackout Series

    Introducing the Casio G-Shock Blackout Series!

    Hello and welcome to this week's super-sized Casio Preview Post. Today, we'll be looking at the all-new Blackout edition, and you might want to buckle up, because there are ELEVEN models to get through. So if you're ready, let's get to it!

    G-100bb-1a

    First up iss the G-100BB-1A, Now, as you can see, it's a much leaner version of the original GA-100, with te analogue time at the top of the display, and a digital time at te bottom. Removing all the clutter makes the time easier to read. The hands and hour markers have a Neobrite solution, so when the light hits them, they'll keep glowing for a while.

    Aside from being 200m water resistant and shock resistant, the G-100BB is also magnetic resistant, so you're able to go anywhere with the watch. If you like to travel, there's also a dual time feature, letting you see the time at home, as well as overseas.

    GX-5600BB-1

    Next up we have the GX-56BB-1. This one is fully digital, so the numbers are much larger than the analogue/digital combo watches. If you still have trouble seeing the numbers (maybe the screen is too dark for you?) turn on the backlight, and the entire screen lights up.

    You'll notice that the GX-56BB is a bit more blocky. That's because it was designed to withstand impact from all directions, making the watch extra-tough. On top of that, it's also mud resistant, so it's suitable to wear in any environment.

    A feature that people will really enjoy is that the GX-56BB is Solar Powered. This means you don't have to worry about changing the batteries. Simply ensure that the watch gets some light every day. There's even a battery level indicator, so you'll know if you're running low.

    GD-120BT-1

    Next up on our list is the GD-120BT-1. Known as the textured series, you'll be forgiven for thinking this has a leather band, but that's just the texture of the band, thanks to the special mold when forming the case and band.

    Another fully digital model, the writing is given enough room that even if you have bad eyesight, you'll still easily see the time. And at night, the backlight lights up the entire screen, making things even easier. Speaking of which, if you turn on the auto light feature, then tilt you wrist about 45 degrees, the backlight will turn on automatically, so you don't have to blindly try to find it in the dark.

    While this watch isn't solar powered like the GX, the battery here is still a lot better than most, giving you a 7 year battery life. The watch also has a multi time display, giving you the time in 4 different cities.

    GA-110BT-1A

    The GA-110BT-1A is next on our list. This combines the leather feel of the GD-120BT, and the looks of the GA-110 Series. If you're familiar with the GA-110s you'll know it's an analogue/digital combo watch. With this version, the analogue hands and markers are a bit thicker, helping you see the analogue time. If you turn on the backlight, the analogue hands will also light up, making it helpful at night.

    The main features here are a 1/1000-sec stopwatch (which can be used to measure the speed of your laps), as well as magnetic resistance. That's on top of your usual 200m water resistance and shock resistance. The watch can be worn anywhere.

    GA-100BT-1A

    Rounding out the textured watches in this blackout range is the GA-100BT-1A. The leather feel of this model is preferred by some, who don't like the look of a normal resin band. The analogue hands and markers are extra-thick in order to help you see the time.

    The GA-100 series revolutionised the Analogue/Digital combo watches, and you'll find all of these features in the GA-100BT. That includes the protection from the elements, shock resistance, and a magnetic resistance.

    GA-100BBN-1A

    If you're not a fan of the resin at all (even textured resin), then you might want to check out the GA-100BBN-1A. I won't bore you by rehashing all the features here, but the band itself is a nylon band, making it quite comfortable to wear no matter the season (let's face it, leather and resin can sometimes be a literal pain to get off a sweaty wrist).

    Now, while it is a nylon band, it's actually extra-strong, because it uses a fabric called Cordura Nylon. This type of material is both light and strong, as well as being resistant to stretching and scratches. The materials are the same as what's used to make outdoor gear and luggage, so you know they'll pull their weight in all situations.

    DW-6900BBN-1A

    If you're more of a digital buff, but you like the idea of a nylon band, you're sure to get excited for our next model - the DW-6900BBN-1. Fully digital, the basic black motif will fit right in with any clothing, and even doing missions/drills in the army. The numbers have a lot of room, and if you can't see them, simply turn on the backlight to light up the entire screen.

    The cool thing about the DW-6900s is that you can see if any of your features are turned on (helpful if you've done it by accident). Simply turn them off to preserve power, or on the flipside, turn that alarm on, if you've accidentally forgotten (happens more often than you'd think)!

    DW-5600BBN-1A

    The last in the Nylon Blackout Series is the DW-5600BBN-1. This is a bit of a mixture between nylon and resin, with a resin case and bezel supporting the extra-strong nylon band. The band holder is stainless steel, giving you the added assurance that the band will not just rip/break off.

    The 5600 series itself was the first ever G-Shock, and has an even larger digital window, making the numbers and any letters extra-large.

    DW-6900BB-!A

    Prefer to go with the Resin band instead? You're in luck here as well, with the DW-6900BB-1. The matte black of the band allows the form of the watch to come out, giving it n almost 3D effect. The buckles, and buttons here are ion black, making them shine and helping you locate them in the dark.

    DW-5600Bb-1A

    The other Digital resin watch is the DW-5600BB. Just like the 6900, the resin band is so dark and thickly layered, that the outline of the watch gives it a 3D effect. The screen, band and bezel are all sunlight resistant as well, so when the sun hits the screen, it won't be impossible to see the time.

    AW-591BB-1A

    Finally, the last watch in the Blackout series, is the AW-591BB-1A. Now, this is an analogue/digital combo but it's based on the earlier models, so it's not too oversized. The black band and bezel match the ion black plated buttons and buckles, making the shape of the watch stand out.

    As with the G-100BB, the hands and markers are treated with a neobrite solution, which means if you shine a light on them, they glow in the dark for a long time afterwards. The watch is also 200m water resistant and shock resistant, so you'll be able to go anywhere without worrying that the watch will break.

    Well, there you have it! Thanks for sticking with me for this extra-long special edition. Until Next Time - Jimmy B

  • Top 10 Casio G-Shocks With a Compass

    Top 10 Casio Compass G-Shocks.

    Compasses are very important tools. Not just when you go out trekking, but for pilots, military, there's no overstating their importance. That's why today, I'm telling you about Casio's top 10 Compass Watches. Ready? Here we go!

     g-9300gb-1_l

    10) G-9300GB-1 - This Black and Gold mudman ticks all the boxes for your outdoor expedition. It's relatively inexpensive, it's resistant to cold as well as mud, and it's also Solar Powered, so you don't have to worry about changing the battery! The Compass here is fully digital, and it even has a graphic direction pointer so you know where you're going.

     prg-270-1er

    9) PRG-270-1E - Similar to the Mudman, but with an added twist, the bezel on this watch means you can easily calibrate the graphic pointer, making it even easier to find your way. The compass also has a bearing memory feature, so if you get lost, you can turn the memory on and see if you're still heading in the right direction.

     prg-240-1_l

    8) PRG-240-1 - Like the PRG-270, this Protrek has a unique bezel. In this case, however, the bezel actually has the bearings written on it (N, SW, NE, etc). This makes it even easier for all the trekkers. There is also an Altimeter and Thermometer, to help you prepare for any sudden weather changes.

     ga-1000-1b_l_1

    7) GA-1000-1B - This next one has been a hot seller from the day it arrived. The watch is called the Gravitymaster, and is a perfect tool if you're a pilot and your compass fails. Now, unlike the digital only watches on this list, as this is an analogue/digital combo wath, the analogue hands act as arrows pointing out your bearings.

     gg-1000gb-1a

    6) GG-1000GB-1A - It's no secret that the Masters of G watches are the most sought after by collectors, but for regular buyers, they can get a little pricey. That's why Casio introduced the Economical Mudmaster. It doesn't have all the bells and whistles (such as an altimeter or solar panels), but the essential features are there, and the black/gold colouring really makes it stand out. The second hand here is used as a bearing pointer when you turn on the compass.

     gn-1000-1a_l_2

    5) GN-1000-1A - This is one of 3 types of Gulfmasters Casio has to offer. The Gulfmaster also includes a tidal trend indicator, tide graph, and moon data, to help you get the most accurate reading.

     gwn-q1000-1a

    4) GWN-Q1000-1A - The latest version of the Gulfmaster is perfect for sailors - the module here corrects the compass position so even  at sea you'll get an accurate reading. It also rivals the sought after Frogman series, because it has a depth reading, so if you're a diver, this is a must. If you're a fisherman, you know how important it is to get there by sunrise, so this watch is the first Casio to come with a sunrise/sunset time indicator.

     gwg-1000-1a

    3) GWG-1000-1A - The Mudmaster is the ultimate, weather proof wristwatch. It's completely mud resistant, dust resistant and water resistant to 200m. This watch uses a combination of analogue and digital compass, to give you the most accurate reading while you're hiking.

     ga-1100-2bjf_l

    2) GA-1100-2B - the upgraded Gravitymaster uses a V3 Sensor to increase the accuracy of your bearing readings, helping you stay on the right path. It even has a feature to correct for magnetic wave interference, ensuring you don't get lost. Finally, even at night, you'll still be able to see the compass, thanks to a Super LED function.

     gw-9400-1_l

    1) GW-9400-1 - One of the most popular watches we have, the Rangeman is tough, easy to read, fully digital and solar powered. The digital compass fills up the whole screen and givces you an accurate bearing representation. Finally, it include a Radio Control function, so the watch will automatically correct itself based on the atomic clock, meaning you never have to worry about re-setting it for daylight savings, or if you're going overseas.

    Well, there you have it. If you're an outdoorsy type, feel free to check out these watches, as well as any others that catch your eyes.

  • Introducing the All New GD-120NC Casio G-Shock Digial Series

    Introducing the All New GD-120NC Casio G-Shock Digial Series

    With Analogue/Digital combos being all the rage, the Digital G-Shock isn't getting much love. The GD-120NC series aims to correct this, with their Marvel Inspired updates to the GD-120 Series! Both designs in this series mirror some of the most popular superhero costumes! So let's get to it.

    GD-120NC-2

    First up is the GD120NC-2D. Evoking Classic X-Men leader Cyclops' colours, this dual coloured watch has a blue and yellow band, with the outside body also being blue, while the writing and buttons are yellow. The display is a regular grey with black numbers, so they're easy to read.

    GD-120NC-4

    Then you've got the GD-120NC-4DR. Now, if you're an Avengers fan, there is no way you can miss the homage to Iron Man's classic red and gold suit. It is in fact a replacement for the GA-110CS-4A, which was a limited edition watch. As with the GD-120NC-2, the red and yellow are mixed throughout the band, bezel, and writing, giving the watch a unique look.

    So, now that we've discussed the aesthetics, let's talk about some of the features. First up, as mentioned before, this series is fully digital, which is great if you like going out. See, until Casio came up with the Dual LED light function, Digital watches had one function that combo watches did not – when you turn on the backlight, the whole screen lights up, letting you see the time. Great at night, and in dark rooms.

    And speaking of the backlight, the watches were designed by graphic artist Thomas Marecki (also known as Marok, which also explains the superhero homage). He's added a special feature not seen in any other G-Shocks, so when the backlight turns on, you'll see a graphic saying “No Comply”. Definitely a unique feature.

    Now, unlike quite a few of my previous articles, this series is not solar powered. That's ok though, considering it has an extra-tough 7 year battery life. This way you only rarely need to go and get the battery changed.

    The GD-120NC series is extra-tough, just like all Casio G-Shocks. It has shock resistance, so you can drop it without damaging the internal systems, and you can even dive up to 200m, as long as you don't press any buttons while submerged.

    The last cool feature I'll talk about is the Multi-Time. While usually, you'd only have dual time (letting you change the home time from one city to another), multi-time ups the ante and lets you see the time in up to 4 cities. That means if you're travelling, all you need to do is set up your watch beforehand, then press a button, to get the local time wherever you are.

    Well, there you have it. The GD120NC series is coming soon to BuyWatchesOnline!

  • Which Casio G-Shock Watches are Atomic/Radio Controlled?

    Which G-Shock Watches are Atomic/Radio Controlled?

    Welcome back to the FAQ column, and today I'll be discussing Atomic/Radio Control Watches. I'll be explaining what they mean, and telling you which watches have this handy feature. Ready? Let's get started!

    So, first up, what is an Atomic/Radio Controlled watch? Well, it's got nothing to do with Atom bombs, nor can it be controlled via Radio Signals (Casio isn't that advanced yet). What it means, is, 6 times a day, the watch will automatically connect with a satellite, to ensure your watch is still running perfectly on time. This satellite is connected to the Atomic Clock (which is the most accurate in existence), hence the term Atomic Watch. The satellite connection is controlled via the Radio signals, hence the name Radio Control.

    Pretty simple explanation, right? But which watches have this feature? Ladies, I hate to disappoint, but for now this feature is only available for the G-Shocks.

    gw-9400-1_l

    The most famous model, is of course the Rangeman. A watch also known as the Master of G, this is a watch for the great outdoors, and no matter where you are, the radio control will kick in, saving the hassle of changing the time whenever you're overseas.

    gwn-q1000-1a

    Next up, we have the Gulfmaster. Now, this is a watch you'll need if you ever go sailing, or even diving. Not only does the Gulfmaster have the Radio Control, as well as a tide graph, but the latest, GWN-Q1000 series also has a sunrise/sunset time display. Great if you wanna go fishing, if you're into nature photography, camping... basically the possibilities for this feature are endless.

    gwg-1000-1a

    Finally, there's the Mudmaster. The GWG-1000 series, and one that has been on many people's wish list for a long time. The mudmaster is fully weather resistant and doesn't let any mud get through. Perfect if you're in basic training, or you've got a job that involves you getting dirty.

    I hope that answered your questions. For all of the watches I mentioned, please click here.

    Top 10 Casio Baby-Gs for Mother's Day!

    Mother's Day is right around the corner! Have you been a good son/daughter? Welcome to our Buyer's Guide, and today, I'll be discussing the top 10 Baby-Gs to get for Mum. Ready? Here we go!

    gls8900-4_xlarge_1
    10) GLS-8900-4 – OK, so I know I said Baby-Gs, but some mothers have larger wrists. While this is a G-Shock, as you can see by the picture, the GLS-8900-4 is definitely suited for a mum. It is also fully digital, making the display easy to read.

    bga180be-7b

    9) BGA-180BE-7B – Part of the Beach Colour series of Casio Watches, this pastel coloured model can be worn on the beach, or anywhere else your mum goes to. It's also great for taking to the waves, thanks to the tide graph, and tidal trend indicator.

    BG-169R-4DR_1_7

    8) BG-169R-4 – Another digital only watch, it so light that you'll barely notice it. It's very easy to read and it's one of the few watches with a telememo function (so mum can put phone numbers straight into the watch, in case her phone dies... something that happens quite often).

    casio-baby-g-digital-female-white-watch-bg6903-7c-bg-6903-7cdr-bg-6903-7cdr-by-baby-g-25f

    7) BG-6903-7C – If mum likes to keep fit, then the BG-6903 series is great. Until recently, this series was considered the go to model for ladies who enjoyed running. It has a dual digital display, with the top part being the perfect size for the stopwatch. The numbers are so large, you can glance down at the screen while continuing to run.

    bga190-1b_xlarge
    6) BGA-190-1B – A travelling watch, this analogue/digital combo has a world map motif, emphasising the worldwide appeal of this time piece. There's two analogue displays, with the smaller one at 6 o'clock letting you see the time in another part of the world.

    bga-195-7a
    5) BGA-195-7A – Diamond studs throughout the display add a bit of elegance to this white analogue/digital combo watch. Like the previous time piece, this model is good for travelling, because it includes an analogue world time view. 100M water resistance means your mum can
    swim with the watch on her wrist, without needing to take it off.

    bga240-7a
    4) BGA-240-7A – Another athlete's watch, this model took over from the 6903 series as the go-to watch for runners. Adding an analogue aspect to the series, he digital displays are just as large as the 6903s, so your mum will easily be able to tell the time. It also added a recording function, so you (or mum) can save up to 60 laps to the memory, and try to beat your best times.

    ba-110pp-8a_l
    3) BA-110PP-8A – This is the female version of the GA-110PP series, which has a (literally) cool feature of having holes throughout the band. This keeps your wrist from getting too sweaty on those hot days, or while you're having a workout.

    bga-150ef-4b_large
    2) BGA-150EF-4B – A soft pink watch, this will look beautiful on mum's wrist, and the analogue hands, along with the numbers, are extra-large, so mum will be able to see what time it is without any problems. It's also shock resistant, so if she drops it, the watch will still work.

    bga-151-7bdr_4_1
    1) BGA-151-7B – The number one on quite a few of our lists, the BGA-151-7B is one of the original Baby-G watches. White, with gold analogue markers, this is an elegant watch that fits on anyone's wrist. The stainless steel bezel also provides ample protection, making sure the watch looks brand new for a long time to come.

    There you have it folks. If you're having trouble deciding what to pick for mum, here are our top 10 suggestions.

  • Which Casio G-Shock Has the Most Features?

    Which Casio G-Shock Has the Most Features?

    Welcome back to the FAQ section. Today, I'll be answering a very loaded question - Which Casio G-Shock has the most features? The short answer is that it depends. Casio has a ton of watches, with the most versatile being the Masters of G. Even then though, the features differ, so I'll just discuss the top 3 Masters.

    First up is the Gravity Master, which you can find here.

     ga-1000-4adr

    Now, these are watches designed for pilots and navigators. They have a digital compass, a bearing memory and sensor (so you know you're going in the right direction), a thermometer, and if you're flying to a different time zone, you can have the watch show you both the local time in your home city, and the local time of where you're flying.

    Another cool feature is the super illuminator, which will let you see the digital display even in the dark. The display itself is protected by a spherical glass to avoid scratches.

    Next up in the masters series is the Gufmaster, located here.

     gwn-q1000-1a

    Now, the Gulfmasters are the first of their kind to have a Quad Sensor, instead of triple sensor. Along with the previous model's Compass, Thermometer and Barometer, this time piece has a depth sensor, as well as a tide graph and moon data readout.

    Made specifically for divers, sailors and marines, the tide graph is an upgraded import from the G-Lide series of watches, and can pretty accurately predict the tide movements for up to 12 hours in advance. The depth sensor can be used to record how long and how far each dive went.

    One difference between the Gravitymaster and the Gulfmaster, is the latter also has a sunrise/sunset display, which can be really important for navigation as well. Also, to help ensure that you're not distracted by mundane tasks such as changing the battery, the GWN-Q1000 Gulfmasters are solar powered. Just keep the watch in the sun while you're out and about, and you'll never have to changee the battery again.

    The last one we'll be discussing is the Mudmaster, found here. Now, this one does have an economical version, the GG-1000, but since this is a question about the most features, I'll be focusing on the full featured GWG-1000 Mudmaster.

     gwg1000-1a3

    A much thicker watch than the previous two, the Mudmaster does away with the tide graph, and instead works on its durability. It is not only mud resistant, but dust and weather resistant too. It's also vibration resistant, which is quite helpful if you work at a construction site.

    The Mudmaster also adds another interesting feature, called multiband 6. Basically, it automatically adjusts the time on your watch, based on the reception of one of 6 time calibration signals, ranging from Europe to Japan.

    The sensors in the mudmaster are great for when you're exploring, and if you like mountain climbing, then you'll make good use of the altimeter. The watch also records your altitude, and the date,to help you keep track of your progress.

    Well, there you have it. To recap, the G-Shocks that have the most features are the Master of G series, and depending on what you need the watch to do, you'll want the Gravity Master, Mudmaster, or Gulfmaster.

    Don't forget to send us more questions for the FAQ. Until Next Time - Jimmy B

  • Hidden Features of the Casio G-Shock

    Secret Features of the Casio G-Shock Watches

    Hello readers, you're in for a real treat today! You know how Mobile Phones, DVRs, Computers and even TVs have secret features? Well, turns out the same goes for Casio watches. After taking some time trying to figure them all out, I have a list right here. Now, before I begin, I should caution you that you need to be very careful. If you damage the watch using these tricks, that will void your warranty. OK, boring disclaimer over with, let's get to the fun stuff!

    Now, first up, so you don't have to keep wondering what A, B, C and D are, just look at the below diagram. This way you'll know what to press. And don't worry if your watch doesn't look EXACTLY like the picture. The 4 buttons do not change places.

    diagram

    Right, our first hidden feature is the LCD Display Test. This feature lights up all possible parts of the LCD Display. This is really important, since it'll help you see if there's any flaws, or if the LCD isn't lighting up the way it should be. So, here's the trick to getting in:

    On the main screen, the one that shows you the time/date where you are (aka Timekeeping mode),, press A, C, and D at the same time. Right away you'll see that all the parts of the LCD display have lit up (it's actually easier to do it indoors or in a dimly lit area, so you'll be able to tell what's lit up and what isn't. Now, if you press D, it'll go through the different segments, so you can tell if the lights are brighter in one place compared to others. The best thing about it is, you can actually use this diagnostic to check if your Casio is genuine, since the final screen will have your module number (which you can cross reference with your manual and back of the watch). To get back to the main screen, just press any button apart from D.

    Cool isn't it? That's not the only trick though. Just to give you some background info, most (not all) Casio watches have a feature called Auto-Light. Basically, when you tilt your wrist back about 45 degrees, the light (if Auto-Light is turned on), will light up either your screen or (if you have an ana-digi combo) the analogue hands and markers. If you know your watch has an auto-light but it's not working, it'll help to go into the diagnostics screen.

    This time when you're in timekeeping mode, press A, B, and C at the same time. Right, now looking at the screen you should see the letters TLT, which will mean you're in the Tilt Diagnostic Mode. Now, tilt your wrist back and at the correct angle the numbers will change to 88:88. That means the watch is working properly. If you don't see those numbers after activating TLT, then you may need to go to the person you bought the watch from, in order to get it repaired (remember, if you try it yourself, or go to a local jeweller, you may end up voiding the warranty)!

    Next up, this feature is only for those who have a Solar Watch. If you've been out in the sun, but the watch is still not receiving power, or discharging too soon, there may be a problem with your battery or, more likely, the problem lies with the panels themselves. It's easy to diagnose however, so let's get to it.

    In timekeeping, this time you need to hold A, B and D. All the numbers will disappear off the screen, and you'll see SLR. Put the watch into a sunny place and watch the screen. If 88:88 does not appear, that means there's an issue with the solar panels. If the battery is fully charged though, then the solar panels, to avoid overheating the watch, just won't accept more sunlight. So, your best bet is to do it at medium charge.

    The last trick I'll show you is something that surprised even me. You see, I've reviewed lots of Solar Powered watches before, and I know they come with a power saving mode, but apparently, regular Quartz Battery watches also have this hidden. The power saver mode will turn off your display after about 6-7 hours when you're not doing anything on it. Don't worry though, if you set an alarm or if you have a fancy Radio-Control watch, the alarm and signals will still be active. Those functions will stop after 6-7 days of inactivity (so if you're going on holiday and don't decide to take your watch with you, that's pretty useful.

    Now, doing this trick actually reminded me of playing a video game, because you have to enter a “secret code” to enter this function. First, hold A until the city code starts to flash. You there? Now, try not to lose count, because you need to press C NINE times. You'll know you've done it right once you see the power setting screen (marked as PS on your display). After that, press D to adjust whether it's on or off, and press a again to set it. That's all there is to it.

    And speaking of, that's actually all there is to this article. Hope this was helpful to some of you. Let me know in the comments, and if any of those tricks don't work, tell us that as well, and we'll update this page.

  • Coming Soon – Casio's Mudmaster X Toyota Limited Edition Watch - GG-1000TLC-1A!

    Coming Soon – Casio's GG-1000TLC-1A!

    Hardcore collectors and casual watch buyers alike, BuyWatchesOnline will soon have a watch ready and able to suit your needs. The one I'm talking about is the GG-1000TLC-1A. A rare collaboration between Toyota Auto Body, and the Casio Mudmaster team, this watch has a lot going for it under the hood.

    GG-1000TLC-1A-1

    Let's get the looks out of the way first. The GG-1000TLC is a combination of black, blue and red, with just a bit of white thrown in. These represent the Toyota team's colours.

    It's an analogue/digital watch, and is based on the popular, budget GG-1000 Series, which trims away a bit of the fat, in order to keep the watch light on your wrist, and in your wallet.

    The band is a resin blue, but with a pattern that looks more like a tire tread. The digital display uses a negative motif, with light numbers on a dark screen. The analogue part is extra-large, with both the hour markers and the numbers being extremely easy to see.

    Finally, as mentioned this is a Limited Edition watch, and the packaging sure proves it! You have the Black and Blue Tin, with Team Toyota written on top, and a Blue and white car pictured on both the tin and the box itself. You can see it for yourself below.

     GG-1000TLC-1A

    Now let's talk features. As I mentioned, this is based on the GG-1000 Series. It has a twin sensor, that will give you directions and temperature readings. One feature of the twin sensor is the digital compass. Turning it on will give you up to 20 seconds of continuous measurement.

    This direction recorder can also be used later on, by giving you the bearing memory, letting you know if you're still heading in the right direction.

    As mentioned, the watch is an economy Mudmaster. While some features have been taken away (such as Solar Power), the Mudmaster is still easily one of the most protected watches available. It's completely weather resistant, and the buttons are inlaid in such a way that even if you press them while you're covered in dirt or mud, it won't affect the watch functions at all.

    Some of you may not like the negative display I mentioned earlier. G-Shock and Toyota though, are way ahead of you there. They've included a Super LED backlight, which will light up both the analogue and digital display, making it a lot easier to see the time at night!

    The GG-1000TLC is a limited edition watch, and it's coming soon to BuyWatchesOnline! Don't miss out!

  • Coming soon, the Casio Master of G Mudmaster, the GWG-1000-1A1

    Coming soon, the Casio Master of G Mudmaster, the GWG-1000-1A1

    The Mudmaster series has always been a popular model, mostly because of how tough it is. A watch cannot be called the master of G, without being undeniably the best in its field. This week, we'll be focusing on the latest Mudmaster, the GWG-1000-1A1. I'll also be contrasting it with the more economical GG-1000 series, for those who are interested.

    GWG-1000-1A1

    This model is one that's extremely popular with the military. That's because it is pitch black. The band is matte black, so it doesn't reflect the light, and it is also extra-thick. The analogue numbers 3, 6, 9 and 12 are extra-large and the markers themselves are treated with the neobrite solution, making them glow long after your backlight switches off.

    So, what exactly makes this watch more powerful than the economical GG-1000? Well, for one thing, it's solar powered. This means that you never have to worry about changing the batteries. Simply make sure the watch gets some light every day, and use it to your heart's content! There's even a low battery alert to remind you to keep your watch under some lights. No more nasty surprises with the time piece suddenly going blank! It also has w

    Now, both the GG1000 and the GWG-1000 are among the toughest that you'll find, but here's wehre the GWG shines just that little bit more – it has vibration resistance and a spherical glass. The spherical glass protects your screen from scratches even more than the normal mineral glass, and the vibration resist means even if you're working with heavy duty equipment, the vibrations won't interfere with the watch!

    The GWG-1000-1A1 also has satellite time calibration. Whenever you're overseas, as long as the radio control is turned on, the watch will auto receive signals from up to 6 satellites from Europe, China and Japan. This ensures that the watch will always run on time, and is especially helpful during Daylight Savings.

    The GG-1000 had a dual sensor in order to save a bit on finances. The GWG-1000 however has a triple sensor, that has a compass, thermometer/barometer, and an altimeter, so you'll know exactly where you are at all times (extremely useful when doing the dangerous Kokoda trails, as well as other hikes where you can easily get lost.

    The GWG-1000-1A1 is coming soon to BuyWatchesOnline. The GG-1000 can be found here.
