U.K.'s Royal Air Force Joins G-SHOCK for a Fighter Jet-Inspired Gravitymaster

Following a successful collaborative Mudmaster with the British Army earlier this year, G-SHOCK has now teamed up with another military branch in the U.K., this time creating a special Gravitymaster with the help of the Royal Air Force.

Based on the newer GR-B200 Gravitymaster, the robust aviation-minded timepiece comes almost completely grayed out — save the sleek Carbon Core Guard — to reflect the Eurofighter Typhoon fighter jet that inspires the collaboration. A redesigned dial imitates the ebbs and flows of the jet’s surfaces, while the pushers on the right side of the case resemble its thrusters. Other nods to the RAF include its logo and custom graphics on the band keeper, as well as the military branch’s Latin motto “Per ardua ad astra” (through adversity to the stars) emblazoned on the strap itself. As a special release, it’ll also come with an RAF-themed box with the same motto printed on the inside of the display box where the large logo sits.

The new RAF Gravitymaster is available now over on G-SHOCK’s U.K. site, retailing for £350 GBP, and will be available sometime this month in Japan, the rest of Asia, and the U.S., where it’ll go for $370 USD.

Elsewhere in watches, Timex has dressed its classic Camper watch with illustrations from Tokyo-based illustrator Face.
