The Mud Resistant construction helps to ensure that nothing gets into the watch, as the button guard cylinder structure of this model seals out mud and dust. This is achieved by multiple gaskets that are used on the pipes that guide buttons and shafts. These pipes not only act to protect buttons from impact, they also enhance button operation. Twin Sensor capabilities provide instant access to direction and temperature information when needed under tough conditions, and Super Auto-LED illumination and Neobrite coating on the watch hands and index ensure an easy to read display when you need it the most . The band surface is processed to resemble a cloth band texture, making it perfect for all environments.
