    *U*N*B*O*X*I*N*G* -- Gravitymaster GWR-B1000X-1AJR

    Here are some detailed photos of the Gravitymaster GWR-B1000X-1AJR, a limited edition model announced by Casio at Baselworld 2019, released in Japan and Asia in April, with Casio America announcing a May release.

    Boxing is pretty standard fare, with a black outer cardboard box and black rubberized watch box, similar to what we have seen in the past with higher end Master-of-G and MT-G models.

    Here is the GWR-B1000X in all its carbon glory. It is differentiated from other GWR-B1000 models by the carbon composite dial, whose three subdials (day/mode, world time, AM/PM) act as solar panels. Impressive energy efficiency.

    According to Casio, "buttons, button pipes, case internal fixing rings, and other metal parts exposed to outside air are made of strong, lightweight, and highly rust resistant titanium alloy." The buttons are very nicely textured, and fit and finish is top notch.

    A second differentiator from other GWR-B1000 models is the "red brand coloring embedded in the carbon bezel layers," which for me was the signature design element that sealed the deal.

    The keeper is stainless steel with a black IP coating and brushed finish. (I'm still not really a fan of these metal keepers, which are easily scratched, and would have preferred a black CF keeper.)

    The carbon monocoque case and bezel have a smooth matte finish that is nice to the touch. The caseback is also one we've never seen before on a G as it cannot be opened, hence no need for unisightly screws. It's a clean, futuristic look.

    You collectors out there will also note that this model is not individually numbered, so as usual nobody has any idea how many of these will be made (shrewd marketing on Casio's part).

    The buckle is stainless steel with a polished black IP coating.

    First time we've seen a "Rust Resist" designation on a Gravitymaster. Pretty cool. Also, these metal lug protectors appear to be made of titanium alloy and have a slightly rough industrial finish that is quite nice to the touch.

    Obligatory wrist shot. CF + Ti = very lightweight.

    The sapphire crystal is slightly domed and has one of the most intense AR coatings I've seen on any watch.

    The third differentiator from other GWR-B1000 models is the red lining on the "in-dial ring," which is easy to miss but a killer design element.

    The lighting is provided by a high-brightness LED located between 5 and 6-o'clock, which Casio calls their "Super Illuminator with afterglow." I haven't been a big fan of these LEDs in the past, but on this watch it appears to effectively and evenly light up the indices.

    Well, that's about it. Thanks for reading and looking as always my fellow F17 friends and fiends.
