The GW-A1000RAF-1AER is born out of the toughest G-Shock premium gravity watch to date coupled with the high demands of an RAF pilot. The timepiece includes a thermometer to monitor cabin temperature, flight record mode and instant zulu time access all at the touch of a button.

The watches features are professional world time, one push and the watch syncs into world or zulu zones enabling the wearer to keep track of time wherever they are and allow clear planning and communications between all members of the RAF team, both ground staff, jets and refuelling aircraft. the GW-A1000RAF-1AER boasts a shock resistant electronic crown and quick lock rotary switch and a solar panel that converts weak illumination from fluorescent lighting into electric power. The RAF wings logo is featured on the carbon fiber resin keeper and features extra tools such as count up/count down stop watch mode and sharp accurate neobrite hands to allow precise timing in extreme conditions.
