Military Watches

In the military, the watch is not a fashion accessory but a tactical tool that comes with useful features. Usually, these watches are large and bold and are designed to resist water, mud, dust, and shocks (among others).

Of course, these watches are not just for military personnel. They can also be used by outdoor adventurers, hikers, and people who usually activate in demanding environments. So, to satisfy this niche, Casio created the G-Shock series (starting with 1983).

These watches are indeed designed to withstand anything and everything. They keep going without a scratch where normal watches get ripped to pieces and many have amazing features that can be used in the field.

Their durability and reliability got so popular that today we have specifically designed Casio G Shock military watches for both men and women in combat.

G-Shock – Rangeman GW-9400 Military Watch


The Rangeman is one of the larger G-Shock models on the market and, if you add the classic case protection, it’s also one of the bulkiest. However, the large face accommodates a series of extremely useful features and has an integrated solar cell that keeps the watch going with regular exposure to everyday light. In fact, there is a battery status indicator right in the middle of the watch’s face (the L-M-H / Low-Medium-High bar).

In addition, once you set the timezone, you don’t have to worry about setting the exact time. The watch communicates with the closest Worldwide Atomic Time transmitters in order to keep extremely accurate time. The GW-9400  is designed to communicate with six such transmitters all over the world.

The watch features 11 modes, among which you have the regular timekeeping mode (with 12h and 24h formats), world time mode (timekeeping in a different time zone), stopwatch (it can go on for 1,000 hours), 24h countdown timer, alarm (5 of them), and more.

Lastly, the watch comes with triple sensor technology with a built-in compass, thermometer, and barometer. It can also save some of the information so you can check it at a later date and it can be influenced by outside elements. The controls are easy to understand (each button on the side of the case has multiple functions), but it’s best to play with them until you learn how to make all the settings.
