​Casio G-Shock G-Steel GSTS130BC-1A3​
$350.00

Our favorite detail about the G-STEEL series is that it brings all of the classic G-SHOCK functionality (chronograph, world time, alarm, timers, and the like) into a slightly more conventional package. This newly added option with a rugged cordura band is by far one of the best in the product family.
